Are you a left handed?

Post by Kurosaka "Ery" Erika on Mon 3 Feb 2014 - 13:02

So, i finally finished my freelance research regarding Left-handed person as the major contributor in history and finally making a relation to all of the info and famous person in history. If you guys don't trust this, then it's fine for me.



The word left in English comes from the Anglo-Saxon word lyft, which means weak or broken. The Oxford English Dictionary defines left-handed as meaning crippled, defective, awkward, clumsy, inapt, characterized by underhanded dealings, ambiguous, doubtful, questionable, ill-omened, inauspicious, and illegitimate, creative.

10~20% of the world population are left handed. Great in musics, arts, tactical strategies, or any other problem involving puzzle solving and creativity. Sometime Introvert, narcissistic, too much emotion, but also friendly, cold, 'Tsundere', or also 'Yandere'

Some also suffer the hatred of opposite sex.

In biological explanation, the left handed user use the right side of the brain, where human use it in problem solving and creativity is created.

most serial killer are left handed.

Left-Handed person adapt any skills more faster than right handed person, but sucks at calculation.





to give the perspective of how good is left-handed person; here's the list of some famous figure in history that are left handed-

-George Smith Patton Jr (US Army armored Calvary commander)

-Bernard Montgomery (British army commander)

-Albert Einstein (Scientist)

-Thomas Edison (inventor)

-Issac Newton (scientist)

-Alexander the great (Ruler)

-Charles Darwin (Scientist)

-Benjamin Franklin (scientist, politician)

-Lewis Carol (Novelist)

-Sergei Rachmaninoff (Music composer)

-Tom Cruise (actor)

-Leonardo Davinci (inventor, artist)

-Michelangelo (artist)

-Buzz Aldrin (astronaut, second man on moon)

-King George II of England

-King George VI of England

-Prince Charles of England

-Prince William of England

-Fidel Castro (Cuban leader)

-Napoleon Bonaparte (french ruler)

-Julius Caesar (Roman empire ruler)

-Diego Maradona (soccer)

-John F Kennedy Junior (Son of JFK< Lawyer)

-Barack obama (US president)

-Jack the ripper (serial killer of Whitechapel, identified as left handed after examining all of the victim's injuries)

-Osama Bin Laden (terrorist, identified as left handed because of his famous video shooting an AK-47)

-Sherlock Holmes (Fictional character by Sir Arthur Conan Doyles, which himself also left handed)


And that barely scratch the surface of the famous left-handed person.
Dunno if i felt very grateful or scared of myself considering that i have the potential of becoming serial killer, or a leader myself ROTFL

In the course of your research, did you dig up any data on people who are ambidextrous?

I did

among all those who are left-handed, you can get 1% ambidextrous or pro-dominant left-hand user in result; whether by training (Like tough Military training in SEAL) or natural born ambidextrous

I actually am kinda ambidextrous. Since the world caters to right handed people I can't use a mouse with my left hand, I can't use left handed scissors successfully because I've used right handed all my life, among other things.

ambidextrous is a definition where one person can master both hand with no problem; meaning that they can operate weapon/mouse/ writing with both hand.

In your case, and like mine too, we're pro-dominant handedness; which use left hand exclusively but occasionally use right hand for instance when writing or eating.

(By the way, i'm prolific when handling the mouse, as i can use the mouse with both hand, but not cutting with scissor...i use my left hand when using scissor)

I would imagine being left Handed and a Muslim would be very hard, on an Historical note the Latin word for left handed was Sinistra which gave rise to the word Sinister

Historically, the left side, and subsequently left-handedness, was considered negative in many cultures.

The Latin word sinistra originally meant "left" but took on meanings of "evil" or "unlucky" by the Classical Latin era, and this double meaning survives in European derivatives of Latin, and in the English word "sinister".


Meanings gradually developed from use of these terms in the ancient languages. In many modern European languages, including English, the word for the direction "right" also means "correct" or "proper", and also stands for authority and justice.

In most Slavic languages the root prav is used in words carrying meanings of correctness or justice.


So, if you were left-handed or sinister, you were associated with evil. In time, sinister itself meant evil and threatening.

With almost three hundred members we should have 30 to 60 left handers, so where are the rest of our left handers.

Same here. Won the NYC Fencing championships in 78 - 80 and NYS Fencing championships in 79 - 80 by switching hands against left handers. Left handed fencers can beat a right handed fencer because that is all they fence throughout their careers, but go up against another left hander and they get mentally discombobulated! Figuring that out, I won every match I had.

I'm also a speed freak with nunchucks.
