Tongue Rolling Poll Comments

The results of the poll on tongue rolling are quite surprising, with a very high percentage of respondents having the ability to roll their tongue. Have a look at some interesting comments from voters below.


  • I can fold my tongue into a three-leaf clover
  • I used to show off about it but I don’t feel so special now I know 81% of the people voting presently can too.
  • I can roll my tongue upside down!
  • The ability to roll your tongue is from a dominant gene, so I’m in the privileged minority.
  • A more interesting quiz may reveal what percentage of people can turn their tongue sideways.
  • I can also turn my tongue over
  • It’s not just a genetic thing. Tongues can be taught to “roll”. Put a pencil down the middle of your tongue and roll your tongue around it.
  • I can’t roll my tongue, but I can make it very pointed and wiggle just the tip.
  • I can double roll my tongue backwards with my eyes shut in the dark at night alone.
  • My friend can do a double roll? Is this normal?
  • When I was in high school, my bio teacher rolled her tongue very tightly. I couldn’t roll my tongue like she did–she could even roll her tongue tightly without the aid of her lips or teeth. Eventually, I learned to roll my tongue, but I can’t do it without the aid of my lips, like she did.
  • Tongue rolling is not a simple genetic trait. Also, I can roll my tongue… however my sister cannot. ūüėČ
  • I can roll my tongue upside down and inside out as well
  • I can also touch the tip of my tongue to the tip of my nose. I can also use it as a picking utensil, if need be. Classy, huh?
  • Almost everybody I know can roll there tongue, I think it is more common for people to be able to roll their tongue!
  • Freak! toungue rollers are all freaks!
  • Me and my sister can both curl our tongues into tubes and make 3-leaf clovers. But I have a certain gene that allows my tongue to also fold into a “w” shape. I can swich between these folds with relative ease. Is this common or am I one in a million?
  • Yeah, tongue rolling is a piece of cake. ¬†Tongue flipping (front half of tongue upside down) is much tougher, and I only saw part Amerindians able to do it.
  • i could flip my¬†tongue¬†upside down put it 3 leaf put it in my throat fold it in half and my tongue goes up to my chin and i could touch my nose with it
  • I was just trying to see if my husband or kids could and none of them can….
  • since having my¬†tongue¬†peirced i can oly half fold my tongue not fully
  • I can fold my tongue in half and also turn it upside down can anyone else do this?
  • I can also fold my tongue in half n roll it n flip it sideways lol.
  • I can also do the three leaf clover with my tongue.
  • I can tuck the very middle of my tongue inside itself making my tongue look split in half. Can anyone else do this? I haven’t met anyone else who can do it yet.

I can roll and flip my tongue, although I have heard that only about one person in fifteen can do this. Interestingly, I am not Amerindian but of mixed (South African/Australian) lineage.
