75 to 85% of the population are right handed.
Those who are right handed have a significant advantage since most doors are for right handed individuals. The world is built around right handers.
Right handed people are left brained, have a higher ability in math, logical thinking. memorizing, comparing, and discovering patterns.
Lefties only make up a 15-25% of the population. They generally are clumsy but at the same time are very athletic. They are also usually good with creativity and most of the US Presidents are lefties.
Your dominant hand signifies whether you are a leftie or a rightie. Your dominant hand is important to the tasks that you do each day. You eat with your dominant hand, most tasks are completed with your dominant hand, and your penmanship is better with your dominant hand.
And yet only 1% Of the population is ambidextrous meaning that they are both hand dominant.
Your dominant hand is usually determined at birth and your genes. With the choice of dominance, everything is taught with that hand.
If you are born a leftie can you change your dominance to rightie? That’s a question that I would love to know the answer to.
Likewise can a rightie become a leftie? Ok why would they want to?
But in my case becoming a leftie was pretty much the only option during my recovery. The left side of my brain was injured so the right side of my body became harder to control and used. It was at this time that I learned to write with my left hand simply because it was easier. Eventually I went back to being a rightie but I can write with my left handed.
When I walk, my left hand holds the cane thus making it appear that I am a leftie. I often put my watch on my left hand too. Oh the looks I get when I start writing with my right hand. It is quite amusing.
Can you really change who you are born and by genes?
