Training a lot of left-handers!
One interesting fact which was discovered over our lunch break on day 1 however was that 5 out of 8 in the room were left-handers. Of course this prompted quite a lot of discussion. And as one of those left handers was the course tutor ie. me, it seemed only natural for me to do a bit of research on the finding. According to Scientific American 15% of people are left-handed, whereas in our little group 62.5% were.
What does it mean? According to an article I found on ehow.com left handers tend to be more athletically inclined (good for running around at weddings), to have more spatial awareness (good for designing a room layout) and to think more quickly (good for running a business and getting on with the million tasks needed everyday). According to a study by Dr. Alan Searleman of St. Lawrence University in New York, “true” left-handed people-those who favour their whole left side for physical activities have twice the problem-solving skills and a higher I.Q. than right-handed people – all very useful too!
And we’re in good company, I’m amazed by the number of famous left handers including: Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama; Prince Charles and Prince William; musicians Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Paul McCartney; scientists Isaac Newton, Marie Curie and Benjamin Franklin; artists Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci; and historical figures Alexander the Great, Charlemagne and Julius Caesar.
Oh how proud I am to be a leftie!
