According to the body-specificity hypothesis, people with different kinds of bodies should think differently. Since this hypothesis was proposed, a growing body of experimental evidences support it. However, the types of physical or empirical characteristics involved at present are relatively limited, and handedness is the main one, while other bodily traits are seldom studied. In addition, most of the current studies have only found the correlation between physical characteristics and cognition, while the causal relationship between them has not been extensively and deeply studied. This article reviews the major studies that have shown body-specificity effects on different bodily traits and make some recommendation for further research.
