Who would you guess is the most typical human face on the planet? Does that face looks like yours? Unless you’re a 28-year-old Han Chinese man, the answer is NO. That’s what National Geographic proved as part of its series on the human race called “Population 7 billion.”
Research determined that a 28-year-old Han Chinese man is really the most typical person on the planet. There are 9 MILLION people on the planet who fit that description. Wowzers! The magazine was able to create this composite photograph with pictures of nearly 190,000 men of those 9 mil.
The researchers determined that in 20 years, though, the most typical person will be from India.
