Left handers are those who use that left hand for everyday purposes more than their right, such as to write, throw, point, cut, kick, etc. One in every ten people is left handed, and it is believed that males are one and a half times more likely to be left handed than females.
In the past, societies had no sympathy for left handers as it was seen as a curse. Children caught using their left hands were often scolded and forced to use their right.
But do you know that some of history's most creative minds were left handed? These include: Beethoven, Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Albert Einstein. As a result, most people tend to associate left-handers with those that are creative. But for every creative left hander, there are probably as many wonderful creators that are right-handed. So I dont think there is any actual co-relation between left-handedness and creativity.
Why this sudden interest in left-handers? Well, everyone in the family is right handed but I have noticed that Little D's predominant hand is left. The world we live in is a right-handed world. Most things are made for right-handers (though there are now shops that cater specially to left handed people). I am just trying to imagine the task ahead for me!
