The World's Most Typical Person - Are You Typical?

According to National Geographic Magazine in a YouTube video uploaded in Mar 2011, The World's Most Typical Person is a 28-year-old Han Chinese male.

Bingo! I know someone personally who fits The World's Most Typically Person mold according to NatGeo's statistics.

There are over 9,000,000 of them in our world population of 7 billion. Researchers averaged 190,00 of their photos to create a composite image and he looks like this..
and I must say the person I know has the same single-lid eyes, typically that of a Han Chinese. This gentleman is a 6-foot-2 though which could make him not quite so typical Han Chinese, I should think.

But he won't be typical for long according to NatGeo as by 2030, that person will come from India and typical is always relative.. Watch the video below to know why as well to find out what National Geographic has found out about the world population.
