    8 for me. Most of it was guess work though
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    6/10.

    Not bad I guess. If you had gone off of your initial thoughts, I reckon everybody would score higher. Its just that you think...that geek looking bloke SHOULD be a designer-but no I bet he ate his wife! And he didnt...
    Such is life.

    7 / 10. I only recognized Son of Sam too. The others were just judgement calls based on appearance.

    10/10 (first time) here.. was quite easy.. the geek look and the look of a rouge, culprit etc

    and i actually did not recognize most of them.. but guessed based on their looks...

    That's pretty much how I did it, too. I though maybe there'd be a curveball in there, but there wasn't.

    happy birthday, vasanth

    A study once was done regarding the accuracy of first impressions. People were told to rate several subjects on a number of personality traits based soley on how they looked. The results showed that people's initial impressions of the subects were correct two-thirds of the time. I think our quiz results reflect that. Maybe you can judge a book by its cover.
