Left of Center, Right of Center
Yay! My data point showed up!

The score so far is:
Left 5
Middle 9
Right 8

Left is a little bit twe, which she had already guessed. All the people who thought that one was feminine were on the right track. Right is a little bit kirisutogomen, so I'm pleased that he liked that one best. I declare the experiment a success! Oh, and the middle one is just Bush, but blurred a little, as a control. That one certainly gets points for looking most like a real person.

(Though it's particularly amusing that several people commented that the right guy looked more friendly, because the picture being used to morph with is really rather alarming).

I need more mug shots of people I know. :)

Current Mood: amused amused

Not having gone back and looked at the votes, but is the the case the votes for the left-hand one were all from women? :)

And do the statistics change if you omit the people who explicitly said "the one in the middle looked most like Bush-in-real-life, so I'm voting against/for him"? :)

Both dpolicar and arcanology voted left, so not all women. The left also seems to be the vote for "Bush is the guy in the middle, and the guy on the left looks the least like him, so I vote for him", so removing all those makes poor twe much less of a contender.

but I lost

I lost to G.W.Bush.

I think you should run un-retouched pictures of me vs. him.

Re: but I lost

Can we get a televised debate?
