    The proper way to take these measurements is this and if you do it differently you won't get an accurate outdated classification for yourself, boohooooo


    Two different calipers are necessary

    Vernier Caliper for facial measurements:


    Outside Caliper for measuring head height, length and breadth:


    Trying to measure facial height with an outside caliper is a pain and measuring head length with Vernier is simply inaccurate.


    These classifications are such a load of crap, honestly...

    They absolutely are. That being said I ran mine and came out as Irano- Nordoid myself. I didn't even know that was a race. Considering I have met 0 Iranians who look Nordic and 0 Nordics who look Iranians. Of course I look like neither.

    I was placed with similarity to a Yemeni fellow, a Moroccan, and a Basque. Ethnic Med basically lol. I have a very long narrow head (215 mm long and 143 mm wide) along with a 61 mm nose by 35 mm (thin nosed) so I am sure that's how they came to that conclusion. Funny thing is the 3 guys I am metrically closest to really look nothing alike and all 3 look like different races (well they kinda are). However considering the morphology used (comparing horse faced people to other horse faced people) it makes sense. Neigh neigh

    The true faulty method here is that all of this takes into account only measurements from the front but doesn't take into account jaw prominence and slope of forehead as well as size of eyes which actually are important in making these outdated classifications. Like what if someone is metrically similar to someone else but has a recessed chin and a bulbous child like forehead? Then they can't share the same classification at all! This explains why Figure 1 of plate 24 (round faced blue eyed Sicilian fellow) looks nothing like Figure 1 of plate 23 (pencil necked but otherwise rugged brown eyed Sicilian fellow). Both "Irano Nordoid" but they look like they couldn't even be cousins. The fat Sicilian guy with blue eyes just looks like a round Gracile Med with his softer features like his bulbous forehead and weak chin. Plus his nose looks broader. The skinny Sicilian has a thin nose and otherwise a really chiseled face.

    Fat Sicilian "Atlanto Med" (sub "race" of Irano Nordoid)


    Skinny Sicilian who actually looks Atlanto Med


    This leads me to believe just like you this is all bullshit. These two guys are apparently of the same stock according to measurements (that I even doubt) and yet fat boy just looks like a Gracile Med who ate too much pasta. I think by the description that the only reason he is Atlanto Med is because he has a big head and is tall. That's literally the only thing about him that looks Atlanto Med. He looks more Gracile Med but of course Coon seems to have gone by height when it comes to Atlanto Meds. So again. All bullshit. Coon placed many Atlanto Med looking people as "Small Med" even though they had coarse features similar to the skinny Sicilian and strong dolichocephaly. Examples are the Lancastrian Brit, the Beira Alta Pordagy, the Sous Moroccan, and the Neapolitan Italian. All have Atlanto Med facial features but none classified as Atlanto Med. Why? All because they aren't tall enough.

    Who even came up with Irano Nordoid? Apparently Atlanto Meds aren't even Mediterranean going by these measurements. But again, even soft featured "Atlanto Meds" are still Irano Nordoid by virtue of being tall. Wtf! This classifier tool should just ask for your height and head measurements since apparently that's all that matters.

    The skinny Sicilian is actually a skinny Ligurian from near Genoa!

    I agree that this calculator is nonsense.
    NEVER ARGUE WITH A FOOL. THEY HAVE MORE EXPERIENCE THAN YOU.

    Sorry that was a typo I am aware he was Ligurian. He looks Ligurian. But I get it. The facial measurements are the same aspect ratio and that in a way does account for coarseness of features like how strong your jaw is or how long your nose is.

    I guess overall taller Meds have larger jaws, stronger brows, and those that don't tend to be exceptions. I notice in TROE, Atlanto Meds had more exagerrated masculine features where Gracile Meds retained more youthful features.

    Used calipers for this

    Results of Racial Analysis

    Your cephalic index is: 83.3 (brachycephalic)
    Your height/length index is: 85.9 (hypsicephalic)
    Your height/breadth index is: 103 (acrocephalic)
    Your facial index is: 150.8 (hyperleptoprosopic)
    Your upper facial index is: 66.4 (leptene)
    Your nasal index is: 75 (mesorrhine)
    Your estimated endocranial volume is: 1949 cc (aristencephalic)
    Your estimated brain weight is: 1881 gr

    Your classification is Proto-Europoid (using Euclidean distance), Dinaroid (using Mahalanobis distance), and Dinaroid (using Cosine similarity).

    According to Euclidean Distance:

    You are metrically closest to Plate 35, Figure 1 (distance = 67)
    You are metrically furthest from Plate 10, Figure 5 (distance = 170)
    According to Mahalanobis Distance:
    You are metrically closest to Plate 17, Figure 2 (distance = 31)
    You are metrically furthest from Plate 10, Figure 5 (distance = 296)
    According to Cosine Similarity:
    You are metrically closest to Plate 8, Figure 1 (similarity = 0.62)
    You are metrically furthest from Plate 28, Figure 3 (similarity = -0.759)
