Q: Can you differentiate between a chinese person and other asians?


Is it difficult for you to tell the difference between a chinese person and any other asian person? I know people can get confused by looking like other people and the same rule applies to asians alike. How can you tell the difference between Asian people?http://alllooksame.com/

Usually yes. I can always tell a difference between a Japanese and a Chinese, mostly in their attitude and behavior, not the face. When you see an Asian person trying to push ahead of you in line, you can be sure he ain't from Japan.
In regards to physical appearance, Thai and Vietnamese to me have doll like faces (smaller lips and eyes).

exactly - the attitude , and the teeth , probably .grrrrrr, Chinese have the most horrendous teeth

No problem.  Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Philipino people all have distict facial features.  It's hard to describe how, it's just something you learn over time.
Growing up in a very ethnically diverse city probably helps.
I can usually even tell the difference between Hunan, Hubei and Guangdong women (men not so much).

instant_noodles:

how is this even possible? do u think u could differentiate between European? All Scandinavian look alike, all Slavic People look similar, and u r telling me u can tell a Hunan person from a Guangdong one ? i refuse to believe

Yeah, it's not hard really. Koreans often have wider faces and are more.... curvy. Japanese are usually the shortest. Chinese, due to the country's geography, come in all shapes and sizes and colurs. 

Can you tell the difference between white people?

Yes, it's not difficult.  Mattaya, do you have a link to a larger version of that picture?  I'd like to check it out.  I can't read it because it's too small!

12 right on the faces but 14 right on the food.... Some of the faces are tough. There's one woman that REALLY looks Chinese that's listed as Japanese and one woman that's listed as Korean, but she looks way more Mongolian. It's a tough test because they used all people from New York - so while ethnically they might be "pure" Chinese, Japanese, or Korean - there is a "different" look to quite a few of them. I'd think it's because in New York you'll find people with Chinese heritage, but their mother is from Guangdong and their father is from Harbin. So while 100% technically Chinese, there are some differences!

I think they all look like clones, just like all us white people look the same. You can't pick them out in a crowd unless you remember what they were wearing. But I'm near sighted and don't where my glasses, so this may be different for you.

You can tell the difference between Koreans, Chinese, Japanese, etc. by looking at them just as easily as you can tell if someone is Irish, English, French, Russian, or German just by looking at them.
