Left-Handed On Right-Handed World

I saw this posted on our refrigerator door last Sunday. This is my daughter’s gift to me last Mother’s day. I was touched because I saw her drawing something but I had no idea that it’s for me. This reminds me of my own drawings when I was her age. Like me, she has this passion for arts and she’s left handed too. Based on research, if you are left-handed, the right side of your brain which controls the visual and artistry of the person is more dominant. So this answers the saying that if you are left-handed you are artistic or creative.

About 10% of the world’s population is left-handed. Left-handedness is more common in males than in females. There does not appear to be any great disadvantage to being left-handed other than inconvenience of using some tools in our right-handed world.

Desks in school- How often do you see desk in school with the slab wood on the left side?

Ruler- the number seems to go the wrong way for a lefty.

Manual vehicle- it would be much easier for a left-handed person if the stick is on the left side.

Coffee mug- we are always looking at the plain side.

Computer- there’s no left-handed keyboard.

Wrist watches- all watches are made to be worn on the left hand making it hard for us to push the buttons.

Guitar- designed for right-handed or you reverse the strings.

Good to know that there are on-line stores for left-handed people like me. Anything Left Handed is an on-line store that offers tools especially designed for left-handed people that can help to make our task a lot easier.

  1. me and my brothers are left-handed but our mother trained us to be right-handed and she was successful with writing skills. We all use our right hand for writing but except for that we all do manual or hand works on the left. Marunong ako magkamay (kumain) sa left hand pero di ko alam sa right hand… My left is stronger ^_^
    Thanks for this post!

  2. Hi Rossel, she is left handed, so is Bill Clinton and Barack Obama…..
    And you’re right, can be creative too.

    ui… touch naman ako sa gift ng daughter mo to you. ganda ha!

    when i was younger, i tried hard to practice my left hand sa pagsulat and pagdrawing even if alam kong right-handed talaga ako. i love looking kasi at people na left handed. i find them cute whener they’re writing and drawing.

    would you believe? i had 13 boyfriends in the past, i realized now lang na all of them are left-handed. tapos, my present boyfriend is also a lefty. hihi.

    see you more around and belated happy mother’s day! mwah
