    I'm a figment of your imagination. I don't have genetic traits.

    I'm suprised nobody else has said "pointed nape" yet. I see them on almost half of people?

    Curly hair/Straight hair - Wavy
    Dark eyes/Blue eyes - Blue eyes
    Left thumb dominant/Right thumb dominant - right thumb dominant
    Left arm dominant/Right arm dominant - Left arm dominant
    Left hand dominant/Right hand dominant - Right hand dominant
    Left eye dominant/Right eye dominant - Left eye dominant
    Attached ears/Detached ears -Attached ears
    Dimples/No dimples - No Dimples
    Square nape/Pointed nape - Pointed nape
    Widows peak/No widows peak - Widows peak
    Can roll tongue/Can't roll tongue - Can roll tongue
    Bent little finger/Straight little finger - Straight

    My best genetic trait is my naturally platinum blonde hair which comes from my father, everyone else in the family has dark brown or black hair.

    By the way, how am I supposed to work out my dominant eye? I've been trying all the different techniques for several months now and still can't decide. Either:

    *I see two triangles and two backgrounds
    *I see one triangle and a blurry "combined" background

    How come I can't decide on my dominant eye and everyone else can?

    On the other hand, I use my left eye with viewfinders.

    What's the correct way of crossing your arms? Is it with the fingers of the non-dominant arm resting up on the dominant arm, or the hand of the non-dominant arm resting in a closed fist? Because I feel more comfortable with my left arm for the second, but my right arm for the first.
