I like people who uses right hand. People say leftys are bad people because they sign a contract with devils use their left hands.. something like that. Why are you a right handed? Is it in the genes?

well back in my day, they also believe that...and even if i wanted to be left handed i would have been persuaded not to...you know how it is with chinese people and being different..they don't like change.

i'm not sure if its genes but i prefer lefty... ^_~

so you can write with both hands?

There was a study some time ago and as it turns out, lefties are 30% more successful than righties.
Read that in a newspaper.



Maybe it's because they're like, only 15 percent of the world's population! (so you'd really notice if they're successful, whereas the 85 percent are so common that even if 50% are successful, there's still that glaring 35 percent) I don't know if I explained that well...

no..it is like this..often, left handed are not smarter but they are more ARTISTIC than the right handed people.

scientifically.

the brain is divided into two.the left for logic and the right for creativity.

and if you use your right hand, you use the left part of your brain....which is for logic.

that's why people who are right handed are often good in math!~like me~^.^

if you use your left hand..you use the right part of your brain which is for creativity.

hope you understand even though I'm not that good in explaining..

but hey!right handed people can be artistic too..and smarter.

no, it was a proper scientific study, and they took equal amounts of lefties and righties from various ethnicities, countries and social backgrounds.

the lefties in general had better jobs, happier marriages etc than the righties.

and I believe the study because more than half the smart people I know personally, are lefties

I don't think that left-handed people die young, but base on statistics, right-handed people generally outlive those who were left-handed (yay for me!! i'm a right-handed person! )

left side brain, and the right side of the brain

There few numbers is what make them unique.
They are not necessarily smarter; They just do a better job on something else and vice versa for right.
As for the outliving thing, Left or Right doesn't matter because there are so many factors that can determine your life span; Not to mention accidents.
The only problem with left handed people is that almost all things manufactured are designed for right handed people.
