Of Doppelgangers and Dejavus

Have you ever met someone new and felt that the person was so familiar? Familiar in the sense of looks, character and circumstances. Recently I have met one such person and upon getting to know her, it is uncanny.

My initial familiarity was her looks. And then I found out she lived in the same area as this other person I know, let's call her Doppelganger. New Person and Doppelganger are originally from the north and both work in the same field (different discipline). Spending more time with New Person, I noticed that she was similar in characteristic with Doppelganger - having an anxious impatient little tick.

And then I started to wonder, perhaps there are certain looks which are quite common. Somewhat like how you'd probably see a couple of Conan O'Briens walking on the streets of Ireland (ah, I remember that episode! haha).

And I further wondered if I had a common face as well. Perhaps I have six other doppelgangers walking around somewhere on this earth. That would explain why sometimes I get odd stares from strangers, like the time in a supermarket where I kept trolley-bumping into the same person and whenever I looked up, he was staring at my face without any expression. Weird. Or maybe I took the last pack of beans that he wanted or something? ;P
