7. About a third of all people can raise one eyebrow left or right it's a great way to send a playful signal to someone while telling a joke but the ability to raise both eyebrows separately is much rarer.
If you're not among them that's because you cannot yet control and move the corresponding muscles but this skill can be developed. Stand in front of a mirror, hold one eyebrow with your hand and lift the other one up and down and then do the same with the other eyebrow this will help you learn to move them separately.
6. Can you sit down on the floor and get back without the help of your hands or knees? This simple challenge is called the sitting rising test.

2. Here is a test for you, stretch out your palms in front of you, squeeze together all of your fingers except your thumb now spread the index and middle fingers, and a ring finger with the little finger in different directions.
Did you succeed? If so you'd probably make a wonderful musician because the nerves in your palms are well developed.
1. Do you feel ticklish when you tickle yourself? Normally you wouldn't unless someone else tickles you. This happens because the cerebellum area of the brain which monitors movements predicts the sensations caused by your movements then it sends a signal to other parts of the nervous system to cancel these sensations.
But some rare individuals can feel ticklish on their own if you're not among them touching a new texture that the brain doesn't yet recognize or using a scalp massager can help to excite your nerves and bring relaxation.
