Two hair whorls

Post by Stevenloan » Thu Jan 23, 2020 11:05 am

Hi guys! Does anyone in this forum have two hair whorls on the head?

Some people in my country believe that a kid with two hair whorls, when he or she grows up, he or she will be intelligent, however naughty, stubborn and have a strong personality.

Steven, that is very interesting. At first, I thought "What a curious superstition." After looking around a bit, it appears that there is more to that than "old wives' tales". Many Asian cultures, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Indian have similar beliefs. There are also many studies that seem to draw a connection between multiple hair whorls (crowns) and ASD (autism spectrum disorder) which could explain the origins of this idea....
