And it is true: left-handers are creative.
I hate sitting next to a leftie....they are always bumping into me. As far as a leftie being more creative, that's a myth.
When someone tells me turn right at the stop light... I think left...since to me that is right... It takes me a moment or two to reorient...
It can be said...from the above reason...that left-handers are more careful, cautious drivers. I know I am.
I do that very same thing. People usually so "No Kat, your other right"
Writing with a Marks-A-Lot and getting it all over the palm of your hand..
I hear fountain pens in the old days were notorious, too.
You mean..a writing feather?..
My older sisters did have desks with ink wells...
I would just make a mess with that..
I'm right handed but pretty ambidextrous. Left handed people are good to have around because they see things from a different angle than I do. As a drummer though, I'm coordinated with each hand. If my bass drum foot ever gets tired I play it with the other foot. Yes, that was bragging but I was just feeling good at the time. Long live people whose dominant hands are on opposite sides.
The old desks we used in school were built for right-handers - the desktop was attached to the chair on the right so that your arm could rest on it.
When teaching I always made sure a left handed kid sat to the left of a right handed one so they didn't get in each other's way.It is a right handed world though.
Especially at dinners...
Being a left hander, I think the only things I've really had to deal with is writing and those STUPID half desk (that even right handers disdained because they were too small) but were simply useless for lefthanders.
Lucky there were only a few class rooms with them and they were slowly getting rid of them.
But there were other things (such as combo locks) that I found out I'm much better with one hand over the other... for some reason I suck at combo locks with my left hand (even though I'm left handed) but my right hand has almost no problem with them.
Do you hit left handed with a baseball bat?
Growing up, I hit, threw and wrote left handed. Other stuff, I could sorta use both hands.
Due to a left shoulder injury, I don't throw overhand nearly as well with my left and have done some throwing with my right... I don't really remember batting at all since the injury... I haven't been around baseball that much (other than simple games of catch) in a long time.
Yeah,,,one injury will do it to you...
