Left-handers have gone from being considered demonic people to being classified as more intelligent than right-handers, according to some scientific studies. Historically, at least a left-hander had his left-handedness corrected and, at most, he was branded a witch or an aberration.
However, today the tendency to left laterality is respected and even left-handed adults and children are seen as exceptionally gifted, smarter and more creative. Let's see why.
There are hundreds of studies on lefties. Universities around the planet have dedicated themselves to analyzing not only the reason for being left-handed, but also certain abilities that left-handed people seem to have. And the conclusions, similar in some points and found in others, seem to show that leftiesthey have certain abilities superior to right-handers.
Thinking of the left-handers I know and without being a scientist or researcher (not even close!), My own study on the left-handers I know or have known concludes that they have certain talents, the most notable being great artistic ability, good reasoning ability and a lot of creativity. And that's where my study ends without any basis, which becomes a personal experience.
What is certain is the number of left-handers who have gone down in history for their achievements: Aristotle, Leonardo da Vinci, Churchill, Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Jimi Hendrix ... Surely the list of highly gifted right-handers is also immense So what makes left-handed people so special? Why does science consider left-handed adults and children more intelligent?
