    like some other people (or most even, i don't know), i am able to raise one eyebrow. hopefully you understand what i mean by that. i cannot raise the other one. so my question is, am i physically unable to, or is my brain not coordinated enough to? and why the specific side that I can raise? why not the other?

    Some people say it's genetic (as per usual). I for one trained myself to be able to wink, raise an eyebrow, etc. If you practice enough, the muscles and your brain should (depending on your age and time given to practice) be able to sooner or later.

    It's the same with wiggling your ears, but I've no idea how to go about doing so, as it's not a useful facial expression.

    thanks for the reply. so i guess you're saying that it's a matter of lack of brain coordination, but it could be trained.

    basically. If you want you can also become ambidextrous.

    Ya, I am have actually been trying the raising one eyebrow thing and it takes some serious practice but I have no dought that it can be done; and I'm sure, if you wanted, you could rais both your eyebrows.

    An example I like is computer games or hacky sac. Both your hands or feet are just as capable of coordination between left and right, it's just you often use each side in different ways. If you ever play any comp. games try using the mouse and keyboard with the opposite hands. It will be weird for both hands and likely, if you kept it this way, you could train both hands to work well in their new positions.
    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    that would be interesting. DaBOB, i can raise both, i was under the <possibly mistaken> impression that everyone could do that. i wonder what determines whether you are right-handed or left-handed when you first start doing things with your hands, if both can indeed be trained to work equally...
