Like the spirited Lucille Ball, redheads are known for their fiery passion. But can they really feel more intensely?
This study surveyed 144 people (67 redheads and 77 brunettes), and found that redheads, who are resistant to local anesthetics, report more anxiety and fear about the dentist. They’re also more than twice as likely to avoid dental care altogether.
Looks like redheads tread more gingerly (pun intended) than the rest of us.
