Would you say I'm brachycephalic or dolichocephalic?

It would be easier to tell with photos of the top of your head with as short a haircut as possible and also a profile shot or two.

You could also get a set of calipers at a local hardware store and take some measurements.



cephalic index
Etymology: Gk, kephale, head, index, pointer
a ratio between the breadth and length of the head. It is calculated as 100 times the maximum breadth of the head, measured at the greatest diameter of the cranial vault above the supramastoid crest, divided by the maximum length measured from the most prominent point on the glabella to the opisthocranion.
