Sometimes It Pays To Be Left-Handed

Are you a lefty? Well, it seems like a lot of activities may favor right-handers, but left-handed people enjoy some advantages. According to research conducted by an Australian National University and aired on the BBC, lefties can outdo some of the righties here and there.

According to the study, left-handed people are able to think more quickly when playing computer games. Connections between the left and right sides of the brain are faster for lefties, and that makes them more efficient when dealing with multiple gaming tasks.

In addition, apparently left-handers are better able to use both sides of their brain, something which is more difficult for right-handers.

Some famous left-handed people include:

Robert DeNiro, Tom Cruise, Jay Leno and David Letterman; baesball greats Sandy Koufax, Don Mattingly, and Ken Griffey, Jr.; former Presidents Ronald Regan and Bill Clinton, President Barack Obama, and Greg “Splashin'” McShea (see how I slipped my name into that famous list).
