Judging people by their covers?

We speak of "not judging a book but its cover," but actually we tend to evaluate lots of things by how they look, even people. An item in yesterday's GalleyCat mentioned a webite with a article on the overlap between art shows and cons, including a cool quiz on whether folks are at an art fair or comic con. It's kind of fun to do, and I cheerfully admit I was right only a little over half the time. Of course, it's also true that the art fair in question wasn't anything like, say, a Georgetown art gallery, but it was still a fun quiz.
