Name stereotypes - July 15th 2009, 06:59 PM

I have an odd 6th sense...

Whenever someone tells me the name of another person I know, I can imagine what they look like, and when I finally DO see them, I'm almost always right about their appearance!

Now, I can guess what someone's height, hair color, and eye color is going to be, just from hearing their name. It just pops into my head.

For example...if associate all haileys to have dark hair, all stephanies are short, all briannas have light brown hair...you know? Nikkis generally have black hair, but personally, my real name isn't Nikki, and I have blonde hair.

Of course, I'm not always right, especially since people dye their hair. These are just stereotypes I jump to whenever I hear someone's name. It's not a bad thing- I don't immediately think a person is ugly or pretty based on their name.

I wonder if I can guess your appearance correctly...

--
Edit: I guess your appearance based on 1. Hair color, 2. Height, 3. Eye color, and 4. A random trait, like having braces or glasses.

Also, as you probably already knew, anyone can guess someone's name, not just me. Because I can't keep up with all these names!

Wow! You're almost spot on. I am tall (5"10) with green eyes and light brown hair that is naturally straight, but I like to curl it.

If you don't believe me I can post a picture.

Lemme guess, you're tall and you have long brown hair and blue eyes? Or maybe you could've dyed it blonde?

I'm an Amanda. Amanda Kate, preferably. Does the Kate make a difference? I'm very short, but I do have brown hair and brown eyes. Dark, dark brown hair and brown eyes.

Oh god! I CAN'T DO ALL THESE NAMES!

h/o a minute here....

Elizabeth- You're short, with red-orange hair and blue eyes?

Cassie- You have an average height, have dark brown hair, and blue eyes?

Anissa- You have an average height, blonde hair, and brown eyes?

Emilie- You're short, have light brown hair, and green eyes?

Jack- You're tall, have brown hair, and blue eyes?

Katelyn- You're short, have strawberry blonde hair, and blue eyes? (All the katies I've met have red-ish hair.)

I hope I don't run out of creativity when I describe you guys! I've never even heard of some of these names, and if I have seen your name before, I probably spell if differently...

Who wants to guess what I look like? Please?
