Common physical attributes relate to height, weight, skin, build, complexion, hair, and eyes, among other things. For instance, the physical characteristics of eyes can be broken down into eye size, eye shape, eye colour, and eyelash length.
The physical characteristics of hair include colour, texture, curl, and hairline. A physical characteristic may also be referred to as a phenotype in science. Physical characteristics are frequently inherited and depending on genetic makeup.
The presence or absence of freckles, dimples, chin clefts, thumb and finger shapes, and body hair, such as on the back of the hand, are examples of other heritable physical characteristics. Such physical characteristics may be recessive or dominant in nature.
