I got this off my other on-line home, FiddleForum, of all places. I scored 7/10. How'd you do?

He he,

I got 10 out of 10...

But it is the photos that give most of them away rather than the faces...

8/10... For the most part it's obvious who's a programmer and who's a murderer.

I like this, but I only scored 7/10! [Frown]

I reckon this is a reasonable score, but I should have recognised Christie. [ohwell]

9/10

I only recognized one programmer, but I recognized and could name all but one of the serial killers. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Hmm, 8/10, but I didn't recognize any of them. I based my responses on first impression.

9/10 - Serenak's right, the photos give most of them away.

7/10

Guessed on all, and followed rule, if they are in suits, they are programmers. Worked pretty well.

My method was "the ones with the crazed look in their eye and scragly hair must be programers..." The ones I missed were serial killers who had to be math professors or otherwise academics... [Razz]

The setting and quality of the photos definately give it away. *With a couple exceptions of course.

9/10 for me.

Scary as I actually recognised most of the programmers.

I screwed up John Christie. I thought it was Turing .
