10 Things You Never Knew About Lefties


If you grew up left-handed, you know that it comes with some challenges.

For example, those desks at school were clearly built for righties — you know the ones I’m talking about, with the little ridge for the right arm to remainder while writing the response to pop quiz. Those were the worst! But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

From scissors to can openers and musical instruments, and even the smudging of pencil lead all over your hand, the left-handed discord never seems to end!

But, as it turns out, there is more to being left-handed than inconvenient school supplyings. It correlates with which side of the brain is dominant, which dictates what your personality is going to be like.

These 10 things about left-handedness may take you by surprise. I didn’t know that the trait came along with such a vast array of other factors.

Are you left-handed? Have you noticed anything else about your personality or your fellow lefties that we missed?
