Angels of Mercy

Good Sunday Morning to you all. Hope you all are enjoying a little time off from work, and recovering from the Christmas festivities. Now, we are going to try something a little different this morning. Our goal is to see if you can really judge something about a person by the way they look. They say that you can not judge a book by its cover, but are they really right? So, this morning I present pictures of four angels of mercy. Well, actually, three are angels of mercy, and one is a scoundrel. The goal is to see if you can pick the scoundrel out by just looking at them. I ask that you NOT research the pictures to try and figure out who they are. This is NOT a mystery person contest. This is just to see if people have an intuitive ability to tell a person's character just by looking at them. I invite you to post comments on your thoughts, but ask that you NOT identify the people, just describe your "Gut" reaction to them. Post your thoughts in the comments, and then vote in the poll.

The Picture above is Angel of Mercy #1.


The Picture above is Angel of Mercy #2.


The Picture above is Angel of Mercy #3.


The Picture above is Angel of Mercy #4.


So, study the people in the pictures and then let us know who you think the Scoundrel is. Please note that I did not try and make this a trick, as in, the one that looks least like a scoundrel is a scoundrel, or vice versa. I simply picked four different people, and I know one is a scoundrel.

Oh, and as far as last week's contest, the polling result was that Bachelorette #2 was the best match for Captain Walsh. This was Nate's choice, so he obviousely somehow manipulated the contest to have her chosen as the perfect match.

  1. I pick Angel of Mercy No. 3. I think she is trying too hard to look innocent. (Kinda the same expression as my ex-husband!)

  2. Call me what you will, but the nun gets my vote.

  3. #4 looks like a girly man as in "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing".

  4. Well... I'll go with #2, she looks a little mischievous... don't know if that is synonymous with scoundrel, but I'll stick with my answer.

  5. I say #3, but that's just a wild guess.

  6. While #4 looks to be from the cast of Nuns on the Run, I get a creepy vibe from #3.

  7. I have to go with No.4. That may be a bit too obvious, but that's my gut. Although, all but no.2 creep me out.

  8. #4 looks like a man, in disguise as a nun. That wouldn't be angelic.

    ReplyDelete
  9. On the other hand, #3 looks like she's up to no good. I voted for #4 though.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'd vote for Angel of Mercy #3
    there's something in her look that i don't like, kinda forced.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have to go with #2. Maybe she thinks the dog will make her man's best friend, but she just seems devious.

  13. In our 'safety awareness' communications at work we stress that their is no such thing as an 'honest face'. This is particularly important in a facility where babies and children could be abducted. And, yes, important safeguards are in place.

    If I were to guess based on appearance then #1 is my choice. This is based on facial expression, nothing else. She seems too stern, lacking emotion. No doubt I am absolutely mistaken.

  14. First impression was that the baddie was AOM#1 because the small picture on the blog seemed to show her glaring at the other woman and demanding a donation. Then I blew up the individual pictures to get a closer look at the eyes and saw that my first impression was totally wrong, AOM#1 appears to be a weary, caring soul having a sandwich and a cup of tea. AOM#2's eyes look like an eager youth out to do good. AOM#3 at first looked a bit devious or pranksterish, but that faded. AOM#4 gets my vote because the eyes look like the eyes of a "true believer" who would brook no tolerance with such things as a differing opinion.

    Which means that the actual villain is the one who's eyes you can't see well, and why AOM#1 looks so weary. It's the woman on the left.

  15. I will wait a couple of days before revealing the answer. I want to give everyone a chance to vote.

  16. #3. There's something about her that makes me uneasy, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My vote is for number 4...


    Of course you can rationalize any of them being the one....

    ReplyDelete
  18. I choose #4...and could be a man.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I agreed with your first commenter, Rebecca2. She looks just like an uncle of mine that I so never trusted.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I chose #3. She looks like Sylvester Stallone. I don't like him as an "actor" so I'm sure this influenced my choice.

    ReplyDelete
  21. #4 is definitely a man, but not necessarily a scoundrel.

    ReplyDelete
  22. #4 has my vote. Her eyes have a steely glint that I just don't trust.

    ReplyDelete
  23. #4 was my first reaction. As another commenter said, the nun looks like a man.

    ReplyDelete
  24. At first I thought No. 1 for sure, but when I looked closely, she does look weary and the sandwich and cup, while surrounded by people make her seem busier still. No. 2 looks like a wartime girlfriend for Capt. Walsh. No. 3 looks like she's a few points shy in the IQ department. No. 4 looks like she's (or he's) up to no good, so I have to go with No. 4.

  25. i vote for #1, something in her expression speaks to me...

    ReplyDelete
  26. I voted for number three simply because looks can and usually are deceiving.

  27. yes, you have to go with the eyes.. so looking closely I think #4 has my vote b/c of her eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. #4 gives me the creeps; but I cannot judge these books by their covers.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Number two is Little Red Riding-hood with the wolf, not dog.

    Look at her shoes. Nurse shoes?

    ReplyDelete
  30. As a nurse I hate to see that scary looking female on #1! But I think its # 4 - a man in sheep's clothing!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I agree that #4 looks like a man. That can't be good.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I voted number 3 but was leaning to number 4 because it does look like a man..

    ReplyDelete
  33. I vote for number one. She appears to have drawn people in and even seems to have a side kick to boot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think it's #1 because that is what I think! No science here.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Definitely #4; the cross-dresser!

    ReplyDelete
  36. #4 - I don't get a good feeling about "her?"

    ReplyDelete
  37. How is "angel of mercy" being defined here? In the crime world, an angel of mercy is a misnomer, heh.

  38. PJM On Dec. 27 you wrote you'd wait a few days before revealing the I.D. It's now January 9th!
    My vote goes to No. 4

    PLEASE OH PLEASE reveal the scoundrel!!
