I don't mean offense in anyway, but I honestly can't tell the difference until they tell me. Then I really see it. I'm sure they're used to being mistaken. The most common one I hear is people mistaking an Asian person for Chinese. ALWAYS Chinese. It's like no other Asian race exists to people like that. xD

I have had many friends and coworkers throughout the years that were of Asian decent and the topic of what country they were from was never really brought up unless we were talking about food or their customs. I never really cared to match up their face with the country of their family's origin. That seems pretty pointless in my opinion. Some of them were mixed anyway!

The reason why you can't tell Asians apart is because a lot of Asians nowadays are not purely one ethnicity. There is a lot of mixed even if they only speak one language, possibly 4 to 5 mixed ethnicity in one. Chinese is widespread amongst the South-east asian countries, that's why some have fair skin.


Just like in Europe, there is mix between French/spanish, german/french etc... that's why it's hard to pinpoint the person's true ethnicity.

You can only tell the difference if you meet someone from a pure background or close to pure.



A lot of people mistake me for Filipino or Korean, or when I get really tanned, some even think I'm from Pacific Islands. I'm a really mixed Asian, but I don't say I'm half this or half that or quarter this. I just say my ethnicity is the country I was born in and my mother tongue.

Agreed, Asian girls are so petite and cute. Really soft curves in facial features. Plus a lot of them behave very feminine.

Asian guys tend to have longer, more classically delicate handsome features. Not much facial or body hair, and lean build (no homo). Basically the boy-band look.

yes! finally someone realizes the not hairy wonder of Asians, and also Native American cannot grow facial hair if my thinking is correct

Yeah, not all Asians, but a good portion of them are very beautiful in a soft, classical sense. Beautiful even. I can understand the appeal.

Basically why I call them "real life elves" lol.

Telling ethnicity apart is fun for me. I've become pretty good at pin-pointing Asian and European ethnicity since I lived in China for a summer, many of my friends are Japanese, and I use to teach at a Korean learning institute. South-East Asians largely all come from one archetypal bloodline, so that's there is a more similar look between them (from my understanding at least).

Europeans are fun to guess as well I suck at guessing most African peoples except for Sudanese, and ditto for South America unless the person is actually an indigenous Peruvian or something. But everyone saying people of mixed ethnicity are hard to guess are so right. A lot of people in the world don't come from just one ethnicity or another, so a lot of people are difficult to "read"

I'm shit when it comes to that sort of thing.

For example:

I can't tell an Italian from a French person

I can't tell a Korean from a Japanese person

I can't tell a Nigerian from a person from Zimbabwe.

Unless I know someone personally, there is no way I can tell where they come from based on looks alone.


Same here. I was out to lunch with my Japanese friend, and she was able to look around the room and identify every Asian person's nationality. I probably couldn't even tell a Hispanic, European, etc.. from an Italian (unless they talked of course, but even then I might have trouble)... and I am an Italian.


I can't tell Italians, Russians, Germans, Romanians, English, Irish, etc., from one another without hearing their languages. They're all white. They all look alike. For perspective, I'm overwhelmingly white with drops of black and indigenous blood and the Native genes stacked to where I'm mistaken for Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Turkish, Mexican, and half-Native/half-white. The white ancestry? English, Dutch, Scots-Irish, French, German, and Welsh. All dating back to the colonial era. I don't even know what tribe(s) my Native ancestors were and even if I did, I wouldn't be able to claim tribal membership unless the tribes in question have a one-drop rule.

I usually try to figure out peoples' nationalities through their names. Japanese names tend to have 3 or more syllables and the letters they use most tend to consist of Js, or the "wa" sound (kinda like, Fujiwara.) Chinese names tend to use Xs a lot (Xiao) they also use Ls, such as Li. Basically, their language uses Xs or Zs more than any language I know, (Zhang Ziyi, Xiao Lin.) Koreans use the Y a lot. (Hyung bin, Park Shin Ye,) and....how do I explain it.....their names have more spaces in between, (Lee . Min . Ho.) Filipinos, of course, get most of their names from a Spanish influence. Vietnamese.....they tend to have silent sounds, particularly the silencing of the G, (Nguyen.) Of course, I'm not saying this works all the time. Its just something that I've noticed.
