About 10% of the Earth’s population are left-handed. It may be a little intimidating for some to live in a world dominated by the righties and for the righties (tools, desks, and even a pair scissors are all made for righties). But on second thought, you are very lucky to have a lefty best friend! Aside from her amazing personality, there’s more to love (and to know) about being a left-handed. She might not even know that these things exist!
Left-Handed Facts To Share With Your Lefty Bestie
Have a dose of these left-handed facts on your next get together or sleepover! It’s time to give some love to your lefty bestie with these little-known certainties of being a left-handed.
1. Sleep problems
Studies say that left-handers are more prone to sleep disorders like insomnia. The science behind this is unconfirmed, but generally speaking, lefties have a harder time getting a good night sleep.
Some studies reveal that the connection between the right and left sides of the brain happen more quickly in left-handed people. Thus, enabling them to do multiple tasks at a time.
Lefties are allergic to more things compared to right-handers. Those allergies tend to be more intense. Aside from hay fever or certain pollens, it could be allergies from food or fabric.
4. Inclination to sports
According to a 2006 study, lefties process things faster than righties while playing computer games or sports. Moreover, southpaws can cover a large distance when playing in the outfield by wearing a glove on their right hand.
There are more instances of headaches among lefties than righties. Worst, it could lead to a head-banging migraine most of the time.
6. Better memory
Recent studies suggest that those who come from families of southpaws tend to have better memories. Oddly enough, a person doesn’t necessarily need to be a lefty at all to have better memory — belonging to a family of left-handers is enough. #runsintheblood
7. Arts and Crafts
Lefties are more creative and artistic than righties. This is scientifically proven as this has something to do with which side of the brain is dominant. The right brain is based more on creativity and this is the one used by the left-handers.
8. Eating habits
Right-handed people tend to chew their food on the right side while southpaws tend to enjoy their food on the left.
9. Mind matters
Research show that left-handed people tend to be more intellectually gifted and score higher IQs. They use both sides of the brain more often, allowing them to process more information.
