came upon this site, kinda cool.
I got 6 out of 12 and they rated me as "OK".
09-13-2001, 10:38 AM
I'm not asian and I'm "OK" too. 6 out of 12.
09-13-2001, 10:40 AM
you bad. 5 out of 12.

Those are some funky-looking representatives we got there ... :eek3:

5/12. Needs work
The site makes a point, but I think the test is extremely biased towards making it hard to tell. Its a lot easier to tell in context, such as in person. Where you can see height, weight, clothing style, etc.
Plus language helps alot.
09-13-2001, 11:03 AM
true, but I think the language part would defeat the purpose of calling it "all LOOK same" right?
I thought it was kinda funny. I was able to identify Koreans more for some reason. And I'm not Korean. :P

i got 6 of 12... not bad for a Texan
09-13-2001, 11:38 AM
As expected, I got 4/12.
I was almost random guessing because I had almost no clue.
I was about 50/50 on those where I had a hunch.
Oh well. I bet my results would be the same for other races too (ex. I couldn't tell you the eye color of most of the women I have slept with)

j/k--you walked into that one
09-13-2001, 12:36 PM
guess i should've posted that a while ago:)
i was 8/12 my first try.
09-13-2001, 12:49 PM
well I got a 9/12 not bad
09-13-2001, 12:56 PM
wow, i'm horrible at this. I never lived in an area with many asians so its difficult for me to tell the difference. Are there any features i should look for?
09-13-2001, 01:01 PM
I got a five. I thought that was bad until my cubicle neighbor scored a big, fat, honkin' 1. And we're both Asian! And he's from Hawaii! Oh, the shame!
We Asians like to think we can tell CJK's apart really well. Apparently not! We all look the same after all! :D
09-13-2001, 01:49 PM
I always thought I was soo good at telling Asians apart. Apparently I'm not...
4 out of 12
09-13-2001, 01:54 PM
I only got 5 out of 12 right... and I'm Chinese. :)

At the Museum of the Diaspora outside of Tel Aviv, Israel, they have a display of all different people (mostly visitors to the museum) and they ask the question "Which are the Jewish ones?" and the answer is "all of them"
It is to show that not one specific facial feature, skin pigment, hair color, etc. defines a people.
I would say that the site listed above tries to convey the opposite message.
09-13-2001, 03:40 PM
i would say the site above is not conveying any message... it's not working.
09-13-2001, 05:21 PM
Haahaa, that's so funny. I guess didn't expect me to share it with the people in G|A? haahaa
09-13-2001, 10:06 PM
damn, i wanted to take a crack at this. my buddy was telling me earlier about it, damn. this chinaman's gonna hve to wait now
09-13-2001, 10:50 PM
site is down...I can't get to it.
overloaded by the G|A crew
09-14-2001, 08:54 PM
Dang I wanted to try this survey out too!
09-15-2001, 06:54 PM
well, i finally got it to work...but it oddly paralled my usual test taking experience at school. i realized how hard it was after the first few, and just decided to wing it...ended with 5/18 "hopeless"
damn, and i'm chinese too
09-15-2001, 07:58 PM
6/18 here too, dang i'm asian and I thought i got em all, shame shame shame.
09-15-2001, 08:07 PM
damn... i missed mostly the koreans on that thing.... (I'm not asian), but considering my girlfriend is korean... I guess I'm gonna get roasted if anyone mentions this to her...
09-15-2001, 08:35 PM
I'm ashamed to say that I thought I'd done pretty well and only got 5. LOL oops. ;)
09-15-2001, 08:36 PM
soooooooo, uhhhhh, where do i email her? don't feel too bad dude, like i said, i just started aimlessly clicking away after awhile.
09-15-2001, 08:45 PM
Dang, I got 7.
09-15-2001, 08:51 PM
