A few erm…’facts’ about us left-handers:

Most left-handers draw figures facing to the right.

There is a high tendency in twins for one to be left-handed.

Stuttering and dyslexia occur more often in left-handers (particularly if they are forced to change their writing hand as a child, like King of England George VI).

Left-handers adjust more readily to seeing underwater.

Left-handers excel particularly in tennis, baseball, swimming and fencing.

Left-handers usually reach puberty 4 to 5 months after right-handers.

4 of the 5 original designers of the Macintosh computer were left-handed.

1 in 4 Apollo astronauts were left-handed – 250% more than the normal level.

Left-handers are generally more intelligent, better looking, imaginative and multi-talented than right handers ( based on discussions among members of the Left-Handers Club! 🙂
