Variation in the physical appearance of humans is believed by anthropologists to be an important factor in the development of personality and social relations. There is a relatively low sexual dimorphism between human males and females in comparison with other mammals. However humans are acutely sensitive to variations in physical appearance for reasons of evolution. Some people have traditionally linked some differences in personal appearance such as skeletal shape with race (but this is a controversial and sensitive matter).
Some differences in human appearance are genetic, others are the result of age or disease, and many are the result of personal adornment.
