I’ve always been an inch or two taller than my forehead. I just figured I would be taller if I had a larger forehead.
This is why.
To find out how much your forehead actually affects your brain size, I did a little experiment. I measured my forehead for a few sizes, then used a calculator to find how much it would take to make me as thick as a normal person. I tried to make the numbers equal, but it didn’t work. My forehead made me five inches taller than a normal human. When I tried to put this into a picture, I ended up with a weird look in my face.
You have large forehead. It’s just that the normal human forehead is so much bigger than the small forehead. One of the reasons why is because the brain is so much bigger than the skull. I can imagine the brain is made up of many microscopic cells that are connected to each other by microscopic connections. If one cell dies, the whole brain dies. When I say “mini brain”, I mean a brain that is just a few hundred cells.
The brain is a very large organ, and a small forehead is far smaller than a normal human forehead. While we may be able to tell what is normal and what is not, it is not a good idea to compare your own forehead with a normal human forehead, or your brain. We should always compare ourselves with our peers, not with our teachers. We need to learn to take ourselves on our own terms.
Sure we can look at our own brains, but we should be looking at how others do it. How do they look? How do they process information? How do they think? All these are questions that we should be asking our own peers.
I can attest to this. I know I have a much larger forehead than most people. The reason is because it’s a natural part of my anatomy, more so than my brain. I do have a tendency to look up from the ground and stare at people’s faces, but it’s not nearly as dramatic as it’s made out to be.
Its true. My own forehead is much larger than most people’s (as well as the average person’s) because it is more of a flat head. It just happens to get in the way of my own brain processing power.
There are a lot of people who have smaller heads. But we all have a natural tendency to stare at the ground and try to process what we see. When we do this, our brain has to work hard to extract all the information from the images in our eyes and then process it. This is called “super-conscious eye scanning” and is an automatic process that happens every time you look at something.
You can’t blame people for having small heads, but it does kind of make sense. If you’re trying to read, but you can’t see very well, you may have to ask yourself a few questions. “How much is this thing here?” “Am I looking at an object instead of reading something?” “Is this being translated into a language I understand?” To answer these, you have to have a mental picture of the thing.
