Ok this is getting kinda annoying. Whenever I start a new class with new people and all and start writing they notice that I'm left handed. "Wow your left handed!" (with eyes wide open lol)

Ya so what's so great about it? I see it as a preference kinda thing, like how people like different colours,tastes, music...

Then I heard some theories suggesting that lefties are more prone to schizophrenia, wtf?

My mom was left handed but her parents believed it was santanic so she had to switch. Now she can use both.

BTW when it comes to guitar I'm a righty

recent studies have shown that in 33 out of 34 cases, right handed people are in every way superior to left handed people.

I don't think it's got anything to do with how you think really.

Right handed people are supposed to have the left side of their brains more dominant, and lefties have the right which is the where the artistic zone is or something.


I use both hands, though I'm naturally a right hander, and my mom, grandad, several aunts and uncles and a few cousins are all lefties so I never really cared cause it's almost even in my family.

there's nothing really special about being a leftie(no offense) it's just odd to see because most people are right handed in the world

Some studies argue a correlation between left-handedness and creativity/intelligence.

In his book Right-Hand, Left-Hand, Chris McManus of University College London, argues that the proportion of left-handers is rising and left-handed people as a group have historically produced an above-average quota of high achievers. He says that left-handers' brains are structured differently in a way that widens their range of abilities, and the genes that determine left-handedness also govern development of the language centers of the brain.

famous lefty musicians and artists: David Byrne (Talking Heads), Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Phil Collins (Genesis), Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Bela Fleck (jazz musician), Glenn Frey, (the Eagles), Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath), Paul McCartney (the Beatles; Wings), Robert Plant (Led Zepplin), Sergei Rachmaninoff (composer), Paul Simon (Simon & Garfunkel), M.C. Escher, Michelangelo, Raphael,Leonardo da Vinci....

there are differences actually between lefties and righties. left handed people are often found to be more creative because they are prominent in the right side of their brain (the part of the brain that controls creativity). Lefties can also do more things with both hand than righties can.

one in seven children are lefty. suprisingly, I'm lefty, my sister is lefty, and my brother is primarilly lefty.(there are only three of us) :-O
#28
I do most things right handed/right footed, but can only do some stuff left handed like playing guitar or playing pool. It's annoying when i'm playing guitar with my friends because we always hit guitars if we sit/stand close to one another.

I'm left handed, but I play guitar with my right hand.

I'm not sure about the schizophrenia- but I've seen some ****ed up stuff in my dreams...and I'm convinced I'm haunted.

I believe alot of left handed people are more creative and spiritual. But it all depends on how you make it. I don't know if there is any difference in superiority between left and right, because a right handed person can be just as creative (JOHN FRUSCIANTE) as a lefty, but they might need some work/help

34 out of 33 lefties surveyed were determined to be far superior than their right handed counterparts. I don't need no stinking documentation.
