Raising One Eyebrow

"30% of the population can raise one eyebrow." For those who never questioned this before, you probably have always done it and assumed it was normal. It turns out the majority of people can't raise one eye brow at time and end up raising both at once.

One eyebrow raise usually signifies confusion, surprise, skepticism and sometimes even anger. Feeling one of these emotions might make it easier to try it.

Being Left Handed

"Only 10% of the world's population is left-handed." The good news though is that anyone can become left-handed if they really wanted to be. While only 10% of the population is born naturally left-handed, the fact of being left-handed is only 25% genetic.

That means that teaching yourself to use both hands can be hard but not impossible over time. Studies haven't found any significant results to show that using both hands improves brain function but it's still a neat ability to have.

Sneezing With The Sun

​"20% of the population sneezes when they go outside in the sun." Don't worry if you're one of them, this doesn't mean that you're allergic to the sun. Sun sneezing, or officially known as photic sneeze reflex is triggered when some people are exposed to bright lights.

There is no real treatment for it, but luckily once the pupil adjusts the sneezing tends to spot and everyone can enjoy the sun's warmth and light still.

Perfect Eyesight

"Only 35% of people have perfect vision without glasses." Even if you once had perfect vision, it's not uncommon for it to deteriorate over time.

Keep in mind that there are a lot of factors today causing vision to get worse. This includes too much screen time and reading on your smartphone on computer. So, once you're done reading this article take a break. Other factors include low water intake, poor diet, lack of sleeping, rubbing the eye too much, smoking, and not taking precautions from the sunlight.

Whistling

"14% of the population can whistle." Whistling is harder than it seems and not everyone can do it. When someone whistles, they make a sound by forcing their breath out between their lips or their teeth.

No one is born knowing how to whistle, it's more of a learned skill. There are many practice techniques for anyone who is struggling to figure out how to push the sound. Then there are singers like Mariah Carey who have figured out how to sing on whistle tones.

Freckles

"Freckles, 5% of the population." Freckles are extra patches of pigments under the skin. Doctors call them ephelides and they usually have to do with genes. While for some they start in childhood, others don't start noticing them until their 20s. In some cases, freckles only come about as a result of sun exposure and sunburns when no protection is taken against UV Rays. Those with red hair and fair skin are most likely to develop them.

Freckles are often seen as a sign of beauty and individuality. They are often drawn on by some people in fashion because they tend to make a face look younger.

Dimples

"Only around 25% of the population has dimples." Many find this indentation on the cheek to be adorable. Some people have them on one cheek while others have them on both.

Some people find dimples so attractive that they get piercings or cosmetic surgery to get their appearance. They might be considered so attractive because they are very prominent and catch your eye whenever you look at them even if the person with dimples is not smiling.

Wrist Muscule

This muscle in your wrist was apparently used by our ancestors to help them climb trees. Fast forward some generations later and some people might genetically still have it. After all the body is known to mutate and adapt to help us survive our ever-changing environments.

To check for it, put your thumb and pinky together and bend your hand. Look to see if anything pops out!

Sneezing With Eyes Open

"1% of the population can actually sneeze with their eyes open." We dare you to go ahead and try this one. Your body will likely fight you unless you happen to be a part of that one percent. You might have heard as a kid that sneezing with your eyes open will make an eyeball pop out but scientists say the pressure released from a sneeze is very unlikely to cause such damage.

We close our eyes when we sneeze to prevent the expelled particles from entering their eyes and from the muscle contraction.

The Strength Each Zodiac Finds When Grieving A Loss

Aries: Their Straighforwadness

Aries doesn't care to sugarcoat and avoid the hard truth. They prefer to act in the heat in the moment and cut right down to the chase. You know that when Aries go for a night out, they won't be shy away from their dancing their heart out. They take that same explosive energy wherever they go. When they're grieving, that's all they feel and they let themselves face it head-on until they can come to terms with it.

They may feel a lot of anger at first or a lot of sadness, and they may not deal with that component calmly but having the strength to be straightforward about their grief is what helps them let the feelings pass and move on.

Taurus: An Ability To Escape

A Taurus likely won't grief right away and try to keep their chin up. They might even try to console others first because the distraction helps them escape. When they're not helping others, they're going to want to disappear for a while, taking themselves on solo dates and watching movie marathons. They'll basically do anything to distract themselves and escape the pain.

However, their ability to escape is also their strength. It gives them a reason to keep going and eases them into adapting to a life without the person they lost gradually.

Gemini: Seeing The Good

Gemini will do their best to resist their grief. They would rather stay positive to cope. However, the more they avoid what's really on their mind, the more likely they are to be moody. However, when they chose to accept grief, they manage to always find a silver lining.

Their strength is in choosing to celebrate a person's life instead of mourning their death. To them, the end is not a loss because if they never had it in the first place they would have missed out on a lot.

Cancer: Emotional Intuition

​Cancers have the ability to be completely in tune with their emotions. They wear their hearts on their sleeves and it's no different when they're grieving. They are not afraid to let themselves cry it out from the second it happens even if they're not sure if they could ever stop.

Cancers' intense emotion is their strength. They're able to manifest them into whatever channel they desire which means that when they get through the painful part, they'll go through the healing with the same intensity.

Leo: Coping Internally

Leo doesn't feel the need to have a pity party and crying circles. Odds are they won't show their pain publicly but that doesn't mean that they're not dealing with it.

Leo's strength is in coping in the way that feels best to them in the moment, privately. They're not looking to repeat what works for others, they want to find what works for them. They spend a lot of time analyzing exactly what is making them sad and lean deeply into their emotions.

Virgo: Order And Logic

Virgo can't come easily in terms of loss and death because they can't completely make sense of it. Their need for logic and order and can make them feel completely out of control when grieving. However, it is that same need for control that makes their strength.

Once they get through the initial shock, they ground themselves by creating their how-to guide for coping. They make step by steps lists of how to heal and keep busy with to-do lists meant to help them grieve in orderly ways.

Libra: Rationality

When Libra deals with grief, it can become more rational than usual. Libra is able to accept loss and death as unavoidable parts of life so it sees no point in fighting it. Instead, it spends its energy on adapting to a new life without what it is that it lost.

While sometimes Libra takes extreme measures by completely erasing parts of their lives that held the memory of what they lost, their strength is becoming a self-containing equalizer of emotions. Eventually, they even out their grief too.

Scorpio: Manipulation Through Empathy

​When we hear the word "manipulation" we tend to think of its negative connotation. But manipulation by definition is an ability to purposely mold. For Scorpios, manipulation isn't just getting what they want out of others. When grieving, they're able to manipulate their sadness with intention.

This comes in different forms. For instance, by spending time with animals, children, or loved ones, they're able to manipulate feelings of protection and love that heal both themselves and those around them.

Sagittarius: The Hunt For Happiness

​Saggitarius is driven by a genuine desire to find happiness. When they're first grieving they may feel lost and helpless as they no longer see a path to happiness.

Yet eventually their ambition kicks in and fuels them with the desire to fight their pain. They don't avoid their emotions and instead try to find ways to turn the negative ones into positive ones and be as happy as possible until they can become fully happy again.

Capricorn: Maturity

Capricorn tries to be mature about the way they handle grief, and finds it unhelpful to spend days in bed or to get angry. As an earth sign they feel connected to a higher being and can see the bigger picture.

They understand that loss will hurt for a while but that with time they will get past it, so they do their best to go through the motions until then, each day becoming easier than the last, until they're fully themselves again.

Aquarius: Living Back Memories

Capricorns don't need external validation and motivation because they find it within themselves. They know the difference between what they can and can't control. They know they can't control a loss but they know that no one can take away the memories they created before they no longer could. So they chose to focus on what they can do.

They keep memories alive through pictures. They reconnect with people from their childhood or they pick up passions they left behind. This way, they connect back with themselves instead of caving to the loss.

Pisces: Just Keeps Swimming

Pisces just need to be reminded that no matter what happens and how bad it is, the world keeps going and so they need to be able to keep up with it. Usually, they can get to this stage before falling down a spiral. Instead, they chose to lose themselves in ways that feel beautiful to them.

They chose to keep swimming. They indulge in self-care methods like watching movies or spending quality time with others. Their strength is in jump-starting their healing process and their motivation to keep moving forward.
