Not sure what to say...Check dis...Look at activities, for instance "cart-wheels" and "round-offs"...Experience has shown me that right and left handers sometimes turn the same direction when doing these activities, ask why this phenome occurs...

Your grammer and sentence structure does not do justice to your thoery.

I actually looked this up a while back and apparently, many of the great artists were lefties. Leonardo da Vince, Van Gogh, Rafael, Michaelangelo etc. Normally, about 10% of all people are lefties but among great artists, the amount is much higher for some strange reason. The same goes for tennisplayers, there are more left handed tennis players than right handed...same goes also for fencers.

In some cultures left handed people actually are believed to bring good luck.

Also, it's an old wives tale that left handed people actually live shorter than right handed people.

So although Bassam Mansour might not be the best example, there is some point to his blabber.

Oh, and I'm right handed....!

I was not questioning the thoery in general. I just found the sharp contrast presented all in one statement amusing.

I guess there are a lot of fun facts out there about left-handedness etc. By the way i can add that left handed people often are good at music and art, but they are also more prone to get mental illnesses such as schizophrenia :)

But what kinds of opinions, suggestions and advises are you looking for?
Cases to look into? Statistics? Theory of why you become left-handed or what? Products that could be made for left handed people? Products that are made for both left- and right handed people (Some mice & scissors etc.)?

If you specify it a bit more, then i guess you could get some more specific answers. Even though some are quite humorous to read :)

i read about this . and i read that W.C. Fields said once "If the left side of your brain controls the right side of your body, and the right side of your brain controls the left side of your body, then left-handed people must be the only ones in their right minds." (from the whikipedia.com)

you are left handed ,so we are two now :D

I'm left handed and can't think of much I struggle with. I'm a weird one though, write left, throw right, kick left, tennis..... left, I think! But apart from the odd pair of scissors there's little I can think I've had problems with. But maybe I've adapted the way I use a lot of things so its less noticable?

I would of thought the majority products today that involve using hands take into consideration left and right users, I'd like to think it's the first design problem the designers should come up with.

I've always thought it would be weird using the mouse with the left hand, especially with those like this:
Posted Image

For some reason I'm right handed with this, even though I draw with my left. Even when rendering I have a lot more control using the mouse in my right hand. I wouldn't be suprised if this was me adapting to my surroundings, computers mice are always placed on the right side... who knows.

I'd be intrested to see what you come up with. But I think observing left handers would be better than asking.

hey i got one for you, i forget where i heard this but its a good example of the difference between the way a righty thinks and the way a lefty thinks. if you had a box of popcorn and somewhere in it was one red kernel the way a righty's brain would go about finding it would be to go through every kernel one by one till they found it, a lefty would spread the kernels out and pick out the red one. The difference is probably most prominent in math where alot of rightys need to write out the equations and their work, where as a lefty can just see it in his or head, hence why a lefty hates showing the work cause it just an extra step not a neccesity, and if you cant already tell im a lefty so i dont care about my spelling or grammar, and also like two thirds of our presidents have been left handed, mccain and obama both are left handed, but obama's got that ugly ass lefty hook when he writes, its a hard habit to break but i did and now i dont look like a tard when i write (i only sound like one) and im pretty shure napoleon and alexander the great were both left handed.

I'm feeling some bias in this thread. I'm right-handed, a designer, and a musician (trumpet), although I have noticed that a lot more than 10% of my design tutors are left-handed. They also all use mac books but that's irrelevant (or is it...?). Maybe being left handed does help with creativity, but it doesn't mean us righties can't keep up!

when people post such open ended questions it leads me to believe all those that respond are doing the work of he who posted the question. you should be more specific in your question...this is not directly at this post only.

the only left handed designer i ever worked with couldn't draw or think...so she was no van gogh.

my wife is left handed and adapts well to right handed hand tools, fishing reels...but we do own(for instance) left-handed scissors.
