One of my many roles as a Psychologist is to research correlations between image and behaviour. As part of my exhaustive research, I've compiled this list for your consideration.

It's known as the d*ckhead index, and gives a percentage score to the likelihood of a person being a tool based on certain fashion.

Guys wearing baseball caps inside = 28% d*ckhead likelihood
Guys wearing sunglasses inside = 59% d*ckhead likelihood
Guys wearing both sunglasses and baseball caps inside = 82% d*ckhead likelihood
Guys wearing baseball cap inside with sunglasses resting on the brim as per attached photo = 100% d*head liklihood.

The interesting part of the research is that one's d*ckheadness isn't affected by whether or not the cap is on backwards or not. The index also doesn't apply to women.

Message - Unless you want to look like a redneck moron, don't ever wear your sunglasses on your hat..EVER..

Funny you should say that. I was just at Woolies and a bloke there had oversized mirror sunglasses on in the store. I thought to myself this guy looks like a total douche... and now I have expert confirmation.

I'd like to know the results of white males who have tribal tattooes that are d*ckheads.

Oh, wait. It's 100%.

Yes, your 100% hypothesis is correct. I go to the local gym and the place is infested with white guys covered in tribal tattoos. Those and the jagged Celtic ones. In fact the d -head index for these guys is actually 110%, as their mere presence makes people in close proximity potentially more d-ckheadish.

Just because I salivated when I saw that cases of rum and coke are on special for $62.99 at Wollies doesnt make me a bogan.

And the fact the only wine I drink is green ginger doesnt either :)

I just don't understand why a white man needs to adorn his body with islander art. Every time I see Shannan Ponton I think "there goes a glorified PE teacher covered in ink for decoration only"

I walk down the road and get them straight from the factory :) The bogan index in this town is off the scale.

Oh, and KW, you don't have a 'Rum Pig' sticker on the back of your car do you? :cmon

I only have raiders stickers on my x-trail. Due to having relos in bundy I have been there a few times, but have never been to the rum factory, a misnomer that needs to be rectified post haste IMO. The reason for this must be that I didnt discover the wonders of rum until I was about 22.

Where do you put your sunnies then?

I wear a cap at work ( helps keep the hair cleaner when working in machines ) and usually put my safety glasses on them. So am I only a DH at work.

truthfully I dont think a cap makes you a DH , I can be a DH without wearing one

I cannot reveal my secrets.

Personally, I think the OP had an off day and was crossed by a man fitting the description he made. It's part of the human condition. We either become those we hate, or we invent an alter ego. The OP has just ridiculed a man that has more than likely ruined his day.

What about people that wear leather jackets when it's 26 degrees just to show the world they own a leather jacket. You can see the sweat pouring off em, it's amazing the lengths some people will go to show all and sundry they have a leather jacket. I own a leather jacket as well but I only wear it when it's cold.

Actually it's more like that we criticise traits in others that we dislike in ourselves.. Freud referred to this as 'projection'. It's a defense mechanism.

I was a pac fair today , I saw a guy ( mid 40's at a guess) he had a blue Hawaiian shirt on , some shorts around knee length and Raider socks pulled up to the knees.

Q. What's he classed as?

A. Legend for wearing the Raiders socks
