Not me.
When I took an anthropology course, I learned cranial capacity is a crucial feature for archaic humans.
So I wonder how it is related to modern humans.

Even tho' I'm 6'1, I'm still the shortest guy in my large family, but I wear the largest hat size. Never have figured that one out.

Im pretty sure that white people all have different sized heads! like many other threads on here this has got to be stereotyping at its best (worst) - actually thinking about it this is a new stereotype to me so perhaps its not a stereotype at all!! The only thing you can say thats definitive about white people is......well that they have pale skin lol.

Its because asians evolved to have more child like features, they have bigger torso and shorter extremities compared to a caucasian of the same height, usually larger and broader heads, caucasian heads are more pronunciated backwards and usually sharper, same for the facial features.

Some eastern europeans might have larger heads, like polish, russians and ukranians, but no surprise gengis khan left a little blood running among them, look at western europeans like the dutch, belgians, french, spanish, italians, etc, they have on average much smaller heads (considering their heights) compared to east asians, specially koreans (damn huge heads that look square like a block). The most western europeans have usually the less big heads, the ones with less eastern european or cromagnoid admixture.

I haven't noticed W.Europeans haven't particularly small heads overall compared to others. I also see plenty of Asians with very small heads. Honestly don't see much of a difference. Maybe Asians have lighter builds so it looks they have bigger heads?

Asian frames are larger on average compared to caucasian ones, Im talking about 2 persons of similar heights, but shorter extremities. Im talking about East Asians, specially Koreans, they have the biggest heads I've ever seen, on the other hand the more nordic western europeans have smaller or more slender type of heads specially dutch, flemish belgian and northern french. Spanish, Italian, etc have quite longer heads, but not huge or massive like east asians, whose kings are koreans followed by northern chinese.

Where'd you get that form? From personal observation it seems Asians have more slender builds, but it would depend on height. I've noticed the more northern E. Asians like Mongolians, some Chinese, Koreans also tend to have stocky limbs. Europeans can too, especially say Greeks and Italians.

I think it's mostly an optical thing though. There might be slight differences but they are exaggerated by other factors.

... this is one of the weirdest, most all-over-the-map discussions I've seen on the physical traits of different races here.

Today I was walking around and saw a 6'2 white woman with hips that were probably two and a half feet wide and legs that came up to my navel even though I'm the same height, and her friend was a white woman who was about 5'0 and petite. They walked past a white woman who was about 5'6 and chubby. The girl who rang me up at the store down the street was about 5'4 and has a slight build but is fairly curvy over that frame.

I know an Asian girl who's 5'7 and slender. I know another who's 5'2 and has a "fertility goddess" body with wide hips, big thighs, and large breasts. I know another who's less than 5'0, weighs about 85 lbs, and can fit both her feet into one of my shoes with room to spare. And another who's about 5'5 and has a build that's "average" in every sense of the word. They're all ethnically Han Chinese.

I don't understand how people can't accept this in this day and age...
