    I was wondering whether we can find some qualities or attributes or nature of fellow hubbers just by viewing their profile pics. I feel I can guess from their profile pics about certain things like he/she might be an ever smiling fellow or he/she is a serious person or he/she appears to be religious or he/she is a gypsy type or he/she is concerned about his/her looks and so on.

    It is only a guess and speculative in nature. I am no authority on that. Have you ever felt like that? Making about the hubber after seeing the profile pic. Something like say he/she appears to be a kind hearted person. Please share your views.

      We are what we are and cannot hide it. I will be God's Manatita and you will be God's Bhattuc.

      Yes, we can form opinions, like John said, but the deeper the Spirituality, the more an individual can be read. By his words on paper, thought-patterns, eyes and the psychology of a few other things.

      Ramakrishna used to read his disciples simply by looking at their hands, eyes, face and so forth. The eyes are a mirror to the soul.

      A lot of times we can and I have, like I guessed this one guy is a total intellectual the other day just from his profile picture. But sometimes you can’t tell, especially if it’s an old picture

        I also believe that way. Thanks for your input.

          No problem, Umesh.

    Yes, bhattuc. I think we do form opinions on what the person may be like from their profile pics. Whether we are right or wrong remains to be seen until we get to know that person better from their writing and comments. Sometimes, they change their picture and maybe our perception does too.

    I think it depends on person in question. Some like to keep their profile up-to-date with their current situation while some don't give much thought about them. I for example don't update my profile pic in here. But on other platforms I keep updating my profile to current situation.

      Some give neither profile nor pic. There's psychology even in this!

    Dav, your profile pic is forcing me to believe that you are a cheerful person. Am I correct praji?

      Funny Bhattuc Ji

      But you are a good man. Your inner nature is sweet, tender, affectionate... mature. Look to the inside and the rest will follow. Hari Om Tat Sat!!

        So kind of you. You are making more from my writing and comments rather than the hazy profile pic. That is why I adore you brother. Om Shanti.

    I believe it's all in the article, feedback or responses, a picture may be perceived different to a response, never judge a book by the cover but by the content smile

      You have put it more vividly and clearly. With your permission I guess that you are a private person.

    I choose my profile picture because it was a picture I had taken for my LinkedIn profile. I imagine it looks a bit over professional, but that is how I feel about writing for HubPages.

    I don't think too much about others profile pictures. I do recognize the people I see most often though.

      You appear to me a sincere and serious person. I hope my guess becomes correct.

    Haha entertaining question, bhattuc. I like to hear your opinions on people's profile pics!

      Li, you have caught me unaware. I guess you are a nature lover. I mean flora and fauna. Help me by telling that I am right!

    Haha. I can't say I am crazy about flora and fauna but I do think they are lovely. I hope to be more responsible towards the environment.

        A gentle reminder to be careful with profile pictures without faces though! Some names are unisex. smile

    If the private, sincere and serious comment was for me Umesh, it's a great balance, thank you for the compliment smile

    As a writer I think, it's good to leave it to ones imagination.

    Maybe there will be consideration for an unveiling of what's behind the name with time.

      Agree fully with last line of your post. At the same time thanks a lot for your kind words. Appreciate.

    I think it's in our nature to make an assumption about someone, based on their profile picture. However, most of the time they're false. Personally, I just read the writer's articles without even paying attention to their photo.

      Very correct Margaret, speculative ideas would never match with reality. It is our fun nature that we still try for those deductions. What is there in a profile picture otherwise.
