A simple test to see how rare / amazing your body is
Your body can do amazing things, but you can also have things that set you apart. Super long eyelashes, an extra knuckle on the fingers or just a line on the palms… the list goes on and on. So today we’re going to find out just how special you are!
Many people know how to twist their tongues, so this is the trick most seen at parties. But only 15% of the population can fold it into a cloverleaf shape. How about a bunch of languages?
Only about 3% of all individuals have an X shape in both palms. Look at yours. Are you one of the lucky ones? They say this is a sign of a strong personality.
Can you cross your eyes so they look at each other? About 6% of the world’s population can shake both eyes while sitting. It sounds strange, but it’s actually a rapid back and forth movement of the eyes, so it depends on the strength of the eye muscles. If you want to do this, just practice.
Ducks, seagulls, platypuses – all these creatures have one thing in common: webbed fingers. The same applies to about half a percent of people! In them, the second and third toes are connected by a membrane.
Some rare individuals have finger joints that are so flexible that they can bend them both in and out. The amount is not yet known, but you can take a peek if you are among them.
There are also people who have an extra joint in one or more fingers. They fold normally without causing discomfort.
There is a condition in which the remnants of the membrane formed in the womb of man still cover part of the pupil of the eye, which thus appears to have a spot in the center, the threads of which point in all directions and adhere to the iris. .
About 2 percent of the population has lazy eye, a condition that occurs before birth when the brain focuses more on developing one eye than the other. Thus, what has received less attention looks in a different direction than it should.
The jaw has a small muscle that dampens the sound of chewing and is usually relaxed. But when a person deliberately bends it, it causes a buzzing inside the head. Only about 16% of the population do this on purpose. But who would do that on purpose??
Can you wiggle your nostrils? If so, you’re one-third of the population that does. In fact, we often move our nostrils involuntarily, but few can voluntarily.
Your eyes focus and focus on themselves all the time, but only half of the population of our planet can control them. These people can relax their eye muscles, causing their eyes to become unfocused and look in different directions.
We can all raise our eyebrows – it’s one of the things our imitation skills allow us to do. But very few people move one eyebrow at a time. And if this is your case, it’s usually the same. It is very rare to find someone who wiggles both eyebrows on purpose. And usually those who do this can also move their ears – one or both!
Hypermobile hands are rare, with only 5% of the population having them. This condition allows you to bend your arms back, and there are people who can even pick things up from the back of their hands.
Something less cool, but also rare, is tongue-tied. Then the tongue frenulum is shorter than it should be, which impairs movement. Unfortunately, about 5% of the population suffers from it.
The same percentage corresponds to elves in disguise! Well, it’s just kidding, but there are individuals with pointy ears that look a lot like leprechauns. This is due to extra puckering at their tip and it is not known why this happens.
About 4% of people have brachydactyly – where the thumb or little finger is disproportionately shorter than the rest of the finger, with a flat and wider tip.
Dreams are usually in color, but about 12% of the world’s population sees them in black and white. Researchers believe this has something to do with the birth of color television. Before he came along, about 75% of people dreamed in black and white.
A widow’s peak is a triangular piece of hair above the middle of the forehead, and it’s also rare! Only 12 percent of people have it. Another thing: this is genetic, so it runs in the family.
Honey-colored eyes, which are a mixture of yellow and brown, are more common than green or gray eyes. This trait occurs in 5% of people, while 2% have green eyes, while 1% have gray eyes. You might not think so, but grays are often confused with blues, which about 9% of the population has.
If you have a dark ring around your iris, you are one of the less than 33% of people with a limbal ring. People are more at risk of getting it as they get older, so even if you don’t have it now, you might in a few years.
About 4% of people have fingernails. These are occasional pits on the back of the teeth that look like little fingernails.
Did you know that you have a dominant eye in addition to your hand? To check which one, just hold your hands out in front of you and form a diamond by connecting the tips of your index fingers and thumbs. Focus an object inside the “diamond” and close your left eye. If the subject remains centered, your right eye is dominant. If not, it’s left.
Less than 1% of the population is born with a missing nail. It is a condition that literally stops the development of one nail. Nevertheless, sometimes only a part of it is missing.
Some individuals, including less than 1 percent, have a “scar” on the eyeball. This happens when the vitreous pulls away from the retina. Sometimes the pupil eventually loses its round shape and a scar-like line appears on the iris.
Another small group has exceptionally long eyelashes. There is a mode that can make them thicker, curlier or more pigmented, making the look much more obvious.
It is a rare and usually genetic disease that turns the skin blue. In people with this, hemoglobin, which is the protein that carries and distributes oxygen in the body, is unable to release it in the tissues. As a result, the skin acquires a bluish tint and the lips turn purple.
Most of us have lines of various shapes on our palms, but about 1.5% of people have only one dominant line, while the rest are less visible.
Less than 1% of fair-haired people have a dark curl on their head. This is due to increased melanin production in the area. The amount of this pigment determines whether our eyes, hair and skin are lighter or darker. Likewise, when some area of the head has less melanin than it should, a person ends up with white hair. This can also occur in the eyebrows or eyelashes of one eye.
