Another profile pic of Goebbels
Karl Urban, actor. Probably dog crinklesock dualfront. Bigeye widespce goodtest.
Thompson. Probably smallpar.
Another example of extremely large frontal (compared to overall skull).
One individual that I've heard multiple people liken to a Neanderthal over the years is Hall-of-Fame basketball player Dirk Nowitzki. I'm more or less inclined to agree with these assessments, at least concerning his front.
His front looks pretty heavily Thal (sans the lower face), while his occipital appears to be significantly reduced.
Same pic overlaid with Amud 1:
This comparison to a modern Thal reconstruction is superficial, yet noteworthy, I think:
I think the gracility of Nowitzki's lower face can be at least partially attributed to modern dietary and breathing tendencies, not to mention the general ongoing reductive trend humanity has unfortunately experienced. I'm not sure if his heavily reduced occipital puts him in Crom/Sap or Faux territory.
He's definitely deepsock. I wouldn't call his occ significantly reduced. At worst he's smallish. It explains somewhat the non-conceptual nature of his chosen discipline.
Yeah, that seems pretty spot-on. After watching a few interviews of the guy, his overall Thal-ness seems pretty evident.
Soft-spoken, humble, and displays introverted body language (arm closed across chest, avoids eye contact) despite having great wealth, worldwide fame and being very physically imposing. I'd tentatively class him as TT.
I can't verify that this is he, but I recall reading an anecdote about the persistence of training that a professional basketball player exhibited: his family went on a cruise and he would run practice drills in the hold all day, leaving them thoroughly mystified. Certainly TT behavior.
Genndy Tartakovsky, animated series director. Widespace bigeye hooknose. Goodtest wideskull.
Damon Albarn, musician (Gorillaz).
Pretty significant asymm. A decent example of foreheadproj + sockets. Might be good to get examples for distinguishment.
Edit: Wikipedia pic suggests backswept. Don't think it's convincing.
Bill McKibbon, environmental activist. Probably a fair helping of aspie.
Meghan Markle. Possible parietal too.
Separate names with a comma.
