Lefties - Today is Your Day! 15 Facts About Left-Handed People

Lefties - Today is Your Day! 15 Facts About Left-Handed People

August 13 is Left Handers Day!

 

Left Handers DayI typically 'miss' this day but, today I'm celebrating with my fellow lefties - OUR day! Growing up in a world of righties, for me, adaptability comes to mind as a left-hander. Single-slotted soup ladles are made for right-handed people as were ALL baseball mitts when I was growing up; desks, spiral binders and so much more!

My take on being left-handed - I think we're more adaptive; we began adapting to a right-handed world at a very early age. My grandmother was a leftie (the one that died at 106) and my youngest son is as well.

 

My advice for my son when he was growing up - savor being different, embrace it and the world will be your oyster! 

 

Here are 15 fun facts about left-handed people:

  • Make up roughly 12% of the population 
  • Use the right side of the brain the most
  • Happy Left-Handers DayMore likely to be the extreme on the intelligence scale
  • Twice as likely to be a man
  • Better at 3D perception and thinking
  • Better at multi-tasking
  • Make especially good athletes (almost 40% of the top tennis players are lefties)
  • Recover from strokes faster
  • More likely to pursue creative careers (arts, music, sports, and information-technology fields)
  • Of the eight most recent U.S Presidents, 4 have been left handed
  • Left handed college graduates go on to become 26% wealthier than right handed graduates
  • On a keyboard, there are 1,447 English words typed solely with the left hand, while only 187 are typed with only the right hand ('only' is one of them!)
  • Adjust to seeing underwater quicker (who knew?)
  • Are more divergent thinkers, a method of idea generation that explores many possible solutions
  • Better listeners - lefties tend to 'hear' between the lines and remember things verbatim 

 

Happy Left-Handers Day!
