Many Nigerian parents are guilty of beating their children into becoming right-handed, as soon as they notice the child might be left-handed. We hope you stop that prejudice after reading this. And if you scaled through and have remained left-handed, here are things that will make you proud of your gift:
1. They have higher IQs
There are more left-handed people with IQs over 140 than there are righties. Also, Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin were both lefties, so if you are a southpaw, you’re in good company!
2. Left-Handed People Drink More Often
3. Lefties Tend To Be Quick To Anger
4. Lefties Are Easily Embarrassed
5. Creativity Comes Easily To Them
6. Some Of Your Favorite Celebrities Are Lefties!
If you’re a leftie, you fall into the same group as President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie, Tom Cruise, Whoopi Goldberg, Paul McCartney, Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie.
I’m sure if I try really hard, I can start writing less like a duck, with my left hand…
