LETTER : Unfair test

No need for any reader to feel ashamed for not recognising who was doctor and who the patient in your perception problem ("Are you thinking too much", 25 May). It was nothing to do with sexism and everything to do with body language.

No doctor of any sex would ever display such a collection of submissive head gesture, lack of eye contract, "camp" hand on hip as your illustration showed. Nor would any decent doctor stand at a desk while their patient sat.
