No, perhaps not many…….
But you can if you try exercising your vestigial muscles around the ear.
I saw this young man in my clinic, a real charmer, who uses this primitive “gift” to impress friends of his circle, mainly girls. He loves animals too, strangely.
We all have muscles that will move our ears around a little bit. The general consensus is that the ability to wiggle your ears is thanks to one gene which has been turned off for some people, though; most of us don’t naturally know how to wiggle our ears voluntarily, even if we had the gene.
Your ear-wiggling muscles are the ones above and behind your ears. They will move your ears upwards and backwards when you tense them. Specifically, they are the auricularis superior and the auricularis posterior.
Please watch the video carefully looking at the ear as the perking motion is pretty subtle.
