I've been reading an interesting scientific study that has found that humans apparently have the ability to tell criminals and non-criminals apart from simply looking at their photographs.
The study found one anomaly though...that women are unable to identify rapists.
While I'm not a fan of scientific studies in general, I thought this might be interesting to post here to allow you to test your own "criminal intuition" :)
16 of the men pictured below are convicted criminals, 16 are not
You have to decide which are which
If you are feeling really intuitive, you might like to also figure out which crime each has committed.
For further information about this study, see Psychology Today
Fantastic experiment Stingray.....
I got many of them, but what their crime was I couldn't figure out. It's in the eye's. There's more of an innocence in the eyes of innocent guys.
The main one that threw me off was #1....that guy is full of hate and anger.

It was sorta fun to try and guess at who's who :) Marked answers below...
In retrospect, I probably should have followed the "intuition rule" that a high school teacher of mine taught as a tip for multiple choice exams... the first answer that crosses your mind is usually the intuitively correct one. Overthinking your answer usually leads to selecting the incorrect option... and that happened here. For example, at first blush I thought 32 was rape, and 29 was drug dealing.
