Some Unexpected Advantages of Being A Left-handed

 Left-handed, painting, arts

Only a small fraction of a specific population demonstrate left-handedness. Recent studies suggest that being left-handed is linked to creativity, an increased ability to multi-task and even survive the apocalypse. But it is true that being left-handed is both a blessing and a curse.

A reader might ask, why both a blessing and a curse? Being left-handed is linked to deviant behavior, bipolarity, manic depressions, and schizophrenia. In the olden days, being left-handed is often associated with the Devil. Cesare Lombroso, the controversial Father of Criminology blatantly suggested that left-handed people are more likely to commit crime than right-handed people.

Negativity aside, left-handedness is also linked to creativity and virtuosity. Some of the world's notable historical, scientific and artistic figures are lefties(Albert Einstein, James Cameron, Jimi Hendrix, Leonardo Da Vinci to name a few). The fact that left handedness is also a key to success will make lefties feel good about themselves.
