Hey Ebony here
My fellow blogger and I Kiley were having lunch together today, and the more we talk the more we have in common. We were also sitting with a male friend, and we were deeply interested in the topic that was being discussed. Then all of a sudden he told us that he was left handed, Kiley replied to that by saying “me too”, and I said ” me three”. I thought that was funny and very interesting. whenever you meet another left handed person it’s like you automatically click and form a left handedness alliance. We are left handed people living in a right handed persons world.
Most things in this world are made for the right handed person. No wonder why it’s so hard for a left handed person to use a pair of scissors, and oh how I hate those 3 ring binders, and how the ink smears across the paper while I’m writing.
Way back then it was bad to be left handed and people were forced to write with their right hands. But now being left handed is a good thing, according to some research left-handed people are faster at processing multiple stimuli than righties. Also lefties process language on both sides of the brain as oppose to righties only using their left.
each side of the brain controls different ways of thinking. The left side of the brain thinks more logical, rational, sequential, analytical, and looks at different parts. while the right side of the brain is more random, intuitive, holistic synthesizing (taking a part a problem to see what the problem is, and putting it back together), subjective, and looks at things as a whole.
According to some research
left-handedness is found in approximately 10% of the population.
• Four out of five (80%) original Macintosh computer designers were left handed (I own a Mac computer and love it. ;-)).
• Five out of the last seven (71%) US presidents were left handed (Barack Obama’s runner-up – senator John McCain – is also a lefty).
left handed people are more artistic and creative.
There is a whole lot more research to be done on left handedness.
