CT Smith in the Zombie Powder manga is ambi-dextrous :P
Lefties are usually more creative since they use the right side of the brain which handles creativity and righties are programmed to the left and logical side of the brain.

15% of the world are left handed, most Athletes are left handed, they're smarter than right handed people by...around 10 IQ points, they die sooner than right handed people by an average of five years.

those are all true, because the reason they're left handed is because they're a "right" brain person, there are people out there who are both handed balanced but naturally people are most often right handed, because of that reason - that they use their right brain more than left, they're better at somethings than right handed people - sports for one.

and the theory of left handed people being smarter than right handed people is true - its a fact, and the other fact of them dying younger is also true.

as common knowledge women live longer than men (and apparently men have a higher IQ than women - by the difference of 1IQ) why? Its because the way women and men lives (before i Keep going, disclaimer: all of these are random knowledge I've gain over my life, all of them are from the Discovery Channel, random documentaries on TV, books, friends, and Teachers - I cannot prove them to you, but its right i'll reassure you; but doubt if you want) differently in life, men live under more stress - but that have been changing but all of our statistics are old ones and have to wait like 30 years to be updated - keep in mind less than 20 years ago the theory of family is a "house wife, a working husband and two kids" when you work (or go to school) you're going under pressure and because the male often are the "Man of the house" he cannot let his stress out (well, there's always the reasons why we have family abuse, wife abuse, children abuse and alcoholics...but i'll let you ponder on that) hence he keep it all in and stress is often one of the big factors that shortens a person's life spawn and as a house wife and a -female- in those times; girls can often go and TALK out their stress (its also true that girls TALK more than males - smile more, laugh more, and show their emotions more) ----- hence the reasons why females live longer than males. (but those are ALL only educated guesses - there's NO scientific prove that PEOPLE *not me* have made over time; it may just be the genetic factor)

that can also be the same reason for left handed people to live a shorter life than right handed people (there's also the tendency of the smarter people die sooner than dumber people - because dumber people have a happyer life =P its true) because left handed get more stress - 'cause they're smarter in general - or one way or another "genetics" may also be an effect; hence why left handed people die sooner than right handed people.

think so

because most of the population is right handed, theres gonna be higher chance of all the stupid people being right handed thus lowering the IQ average for right handed people

not to say that all left handed people are clever, just all the stupid people are more likely to be right handed

left side brain, and the right side of the brain


Yes, the "theory" I read is somewhat about the left and right sides of the brain. Its like the left part of your body is controlled by the right hemisphere of the brain, or vice versa. So, if you're a lefty, the right side of your brain is more dominant than the other. It means that the function and how your right side process an information is more active.

Both hemispheres of the brain has flaws. But, its still a theory and no one can truly say that if you're a lefty, you're more smarter. Let's not judge a person's intelligence because of that.

Here's some of the brain hemispheres characteristics:
1. The left side of the brain processes information in a linear manner. The right brain however, processes from whole to parts, holistically.
2. In addition to thinking in a linear manner, the left brain processes in sequence. The right is more random.
3. The left brain has no trouble processing symbols. The right brain, on the other hand, wants things to be concrete.
4. The left brain processes in a linear, sequential, logical manner. The right side functions more on intuition.
5. Left brain students have little trouble expressing themselves in words. Right brain students may know what they mean, but often have trouble finding the right words.
6. The left side of the brain deals with things the way they are-with reality. The right brain is more creative.

^ I can't really say that the lefties' life expectancy is low either. I just read it on some website (in which I can't remember anymore). It will be just a coincidence if a left handed person dies at a very young age (his/her medical history and lifestyle should be checked too or taken into consideration along this line). Other factors can also occur.

You're right. The left side of the brain can easily do spelling and math problems than a right brained person. They use words to remember things and can remember names rather than faces. While the right hemisphere is more on visual and the use of "mind photos" to remember things.

i've heard that girls that are lefties dies younger because it blocks a nerves in her hand that is connected to her heart...which means girls will die earlier with heart problems...and i do believe lefties are smarter cause in the news, i've heard that a lots of famouns scientist and stuff are lefties like einstein. Me, im kinda an ambidextrous cause i write with left, but for sports, i use right...Btw, righties doesn't mean your good at math...ppl in my class get straight f's and since i use my left hand for writing it doesn't mean i suck at math, anyway im the top in my math class..well...more like the whole house.
