Being Left-Handed

Left Handed Brain

" Lefties are the Only Ones In Their Right Minds"

Recently I had a conversation with a friend, our topic went into me being a left-handed, the way I think, remember things and behaves.

This friend of mine is a right-handed, an Aquarius basically a very realistic and practical person which is good since he's a guy. And on the other hand, I'm a left-handed, a Pisces and best of all a GIRL ^_^

Ever since young, being a left-handed is actually something that I am really proud of, I don't exactly know why...probably because I thought that was unique since a class of 30 people only consists of one or two lefty. 

In my own experience thru the years, being a left-handed gives me a sense of over-flowing creativity in school, BUT I'm in a pure sciences class when I was in sec school, wrong...

Left-handedness is part of my identity, my self...
Left-handed people tend to be much more sensitive towards people than a right-handed. Pay extremely close attention to people around you and you might notice that when their lip curve into smiles, you'll see that almost always a left-handed is usually much more expressive on their right face than their left. In fact, if you mirror the two sides of a person's face to create a left-composite and a right-composite, you'll find yourself looking at two completely different person.

In the '70s and '80s parents made their left-handed children struggle to use their right hands may be kicking themselves right now :p

As it turns out, left-handers might have the advantage in certain areas like, say, piloting a jet fighter or talking and driving at the same time. 

A study published in the journal Neuropsychology in late 2006 suggests that left-handed people are faster at processing multiple stimuli than righties.

After doing all my reads online to get to know more about a left-handed, I have learnt that that left-handers have a slight advantage in sports, gaming and other activities in which players face large volumes of stimuli being thrown at them simultaneously or in quick succession. Experts also theorize that left-handed people could fare better mentally as they move into old age.

Apparantly 90% of the people in this world is right-handed. I think I'm just plain weird and have to admit to that.

Left-handed and right-handed people view the world differently, scientists have shown.

This is interesting to know...

Left-handers see and think differently and can get some very different results from various "brain tests", usually doing very well on tests that involve creative thinking or unraveling complex images and manipulating 3D images. Here's a famous test of creativity - have a look at the image below:

A non-creative right handed brain sees only a hodgepodge of disconnected shapes, but the left-handed brain can go beyond logic and find the connecting concept that makes sense of the shapes. If you can't "see" beyond the shapes, it's because your right-handed brain is trying to solve the problem and won't let your left-handed brain have a go.

Thurston's Hand Test

The left-handed brain's mastery of the visual has an important benefit - it can "see" three dimensionally. In Thurston's hand test, you are asked to identify which pictures are of left hands and which are of right hands. Your right-handed brain is at a loss to handle this problem, but your left-handed brain can actually rotate these drawings in imaginary space to solve the test.
