Who of us, reading about the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, was not jealous of his ability to calculate everything about people, paying attention to the smallest details of their appearance? Of course, life is more complicated most of sophisticated literary fiction and very insightful people are unlikely to achieve perfection of the great detective created by Arthur Conan Doyle. However, there are some laws that allow to define character traits or health, based on the physiological characteristics of the person.
1. According to the statistics, women with wide hips less scrupulous in the choice of partners
An amazing fact – on the thighs of women width can estimate how likely is it that your first date ends in sex. This is indicated by the results of research conducted by the staff of the University of Leeds (UK). Experts have studied some aspects of the sexual behavior of female volunteers, including – number of sexual partners and age at which they lost their virginity, and then examined how these figures relate to the physical parameters of their waists, hips and buttocks. It turned out that the fair sex with wide hips, are more likely to engage in “sex without commitment”, while women with narrow hips are more prone to long-term relationships and a careful approach to the choice of partners.
Of course, the objective of this study leaves much to be desired – it is possible that the participants simply exaggerated activity of their sex lives. However, the researchers argue that this phenomenon can be explained by biological factors – women with wide hips is often much less of a problem with the birth of children, so the very nature sets them on the continuation of the species.
2. Sex with obese men tend to be more long lasting
According to data published in the “International Journal of Impotence Research» ( «International Journal of Impotence Research»), men are overweight in sex less hasty than slim. Experts from Turkey during the year studied the sexual life of men of different sizes, it was found that the total lovemaking lasts an average of 7 minutes 18 seconds, while the wicked is more than four times less – about 1 min 43 sec.
One reason for this may be fatigue obese men, which does not give them the first attempt to bring sexual intercourse with a logical conclusion, but there are other factors. In obese people often observed elevated levels of the female hormone (estrogen) in the body, in some way, “inhibits” the male body, resulting in ejaculation occurs later. It should be noted that men who want to please their partners long sex should not rush to gain weight, because erectile dysfunction is one of the most common side effects of obesity.
3. The color of the eyes can be seen on the predisposition to sports mind
As you know, in some sports most effective people with certain physical attributes – so as to be a professional basketball player, you must have above-average growth, and say, in football prefer to take only the stout, strong guys. About the future of outstanding achievements in sport can talk and less obvious physical characteristics – such as eye color.
The results of several experiments demonstrate that people with brown eyes often succeed in sports that require quick reactions, including – tennis, football or boxing. Blue or green eyes, in turn, is an indication that a person better suited leisurely sports disciplines that require strategic thinking – for example, golf, chess and bowling.
Equally curious effect is explained by the physiology – bright eyes more sensitive to sunlight, which complicates the processing of visual information, and for a split second slow decision-making. A simple example – a blue-eyed boxer can confuse even the highlight on the clock the referee, causing him to miss the bounce, with brown-eyed in his place would not even pay attention to a visual stimulus.
4. earlobes “predict” heart attacks
Cardiovascular disease – one of the main problems of modern humanity. In their development significantly influenced by factors such as lifestyle, diet and bad habits, but there is a rather unusual method immediately determine a person’s susceptibility to heart attack – pay attention to the shape of his ears.
If your earlobes are diagonal folds that doctors call “sign Frank” is – a sure sign of predisposition to the development of cardiovascular disease. It sounds like something out of science fiction, but these folds do give evidence of heart problems. In one study, doctors studied this phenomenon
