If this sounds weird you will have to tolerate me. For as long as I can remember everytime I meet people and my being left-handed would be exposed ( Say maybe, I have to use a pen etc) some people would ask me if I am creative- with the assumption that left handed people are all creative. (Of course I am a published author of two Novels and a collection of poems). However I still need to find out if is there a factual proveable reason behind the assumption/ or the thinking that all lefthanded humans are creative by virtue of them 'using the left side of the brain'?.
Is there a followable scientifical lineage of creative humans( in arts, science, politics etc) who, if they were not left handed, they would not have achieved or contributed to human civilisation?
Some little-known facts about lefties:
About 20% of schizophrenics are left-handed while lefties are only 10% of the general population.
Our four last US Presidents were all lefties.
Lefties excel at sports. They win more than their share of games & championships. Baseball pitchers sweat facing a left-handed hitter.
Lefties experience greater fear and deeper anger than righties.
Lefties embarrass more easily.
While they aren;t more likely to be alcoholic, they do drink more than righties.
