With only about 10% of the population being left-handed, lefties are a serious minority. While they’ve endured a serious amount of prejudice (the word for left in almost every language has a less than positive connotation) and even aggression over the years, today, many left handed people are proud of their unusual handedness.Here are some of the advantages which only the left-handers have!
Here are some of the advantages which only the left-handers have!
Lefties are better able to multitask
One of the advantages of being left-handed is that it forces your brain to think more quickly. Researchers found that conversations between the left and right sides of the brain happen more quickly in left handed people. The more dominant the left-handedness is, the better these abilities are.
Lefties are better at learning to drive
Left-handed drivers are ten percent more likely to pass their driving test, according to a leading Driving School. A significant reason for this could be the use of the gear and clutch, which require precise motor skills. Both are positioned to the left of the driver.
Lefties have great drawing abilities
Being left-handed brings with it a more creative inclination, but it also means specific abilities that are handy when the drawing comes more naturally to them. It’s especially handy for impressing that annoying art instructor who’s not giving you nearly enough time to draw a subject.
Left-handers have a high IQ
Researchers aren’t sure why, but left handers seem to make up a disproportionately large part of those who are highly intelligent. For example, twenty percent of all Mensa members are left-handed.
Lefties are good at sports
Left handers may have the edge in competitions where opponents face each other, such as tennis, baseball, and boxing. This may be due to the fact left-handed athletes have more opportunity to practice against right-handed opponents.
