We are all different, but some people are exceptional in their own way. Their genetics gave them unique physical characteristics. Those who have them share them with joy; some even use them as a magic trick or to enhance their appearance.

We look at the uniqueness of different individuals and uncover 10 unusual body features that set you apart from the crowd.

Widow’s Peak

Widow’s peak is a characteristic thin V-shaped line that is often inherited. Contrary to popular belief, it’s probably no more important than having wavy hair or a split chin.

One study found this feature to be unusual. 67% of the observed population did not show a widow’s peak, while 33% did. This indicates that genes, age, and gender affect this trait.

Letter X

There is a peculiar mark that only a few individuals possess. According to reports, only 3% of the world’s population have the letter ‘X‘ on their hands. It is placed between the 2 curved horizontal lines on the palm.

Photic sneeze reflex

Common causes of sneezing include illness and allergies. However, some people experience a symptom called “photic sneezes.” It is the reflexive sneeze caused by light, especially sunlight.
It is believed that it happens to 18 to 35% of the population (PSR).

Simple anisocoria

The size of the pupil changes so that the right amount of light can enter the eye. So when it’s dark, they get bigger, and when it’s sunny, they get smaller. In most cases, each eye shrinks and expands at the same time.

However, this is not always the case, so it can appear that each eye’s pupil is a different size. This difference in pupil size is called anisocoria.


Dextrocardia is a rare heart disorder in which the heart points to the right side of the chest instead of the left. It is congenital, which means that it is present from birth.

However, less than one percent of the population suffers from this condition, but those who do may have surgical options.
