    I am a lefty. I write with my left hand, eat with a fork in my left hand, throw with my left hand, ride a snowboard “goofy foot”, shoot left handed, use a mouse with my RIGHT hand (always easier for me since I did that from a very young age), I am left eye dominant (good since I shoot left handed). I am a pretty analytical person (at least I think I am) and I’m always picking things apart, trying to deduce and understand things to include myself. My memory isn’t great but it’s not terrible…nothing too impressive. But what always stuck out to me was that I knew I was intelligent, even though IQ tests showed I had about a 100 IQ, I figured things out in math and science that a lot of people couldn’t. Scored well on my ASVAB tests for the Army and got into computers and learned things that people twice my age didn’t know! Was and still am curious about my analytical abilities and how this ties to left handedness. I think I’ve heard that this is at least fairly common with lefties.

    Last year you posted an article wherein the claim was made that researchers had concluded that lefties convalesce faster from a stroke than richt handed victims. It just so happened that I experienced a stroke last year, hence the article stuck.

    However, I can’t seem to find the original copy. Can you help me out?

    Thanking you in advance for your troubles.

    Best regards,

  3. I Realy like this as I am. a left handed who was forced to write with right hand this resulted in becoming slow in writing and in any other type of activity also I used to feel that if I try to speak quickly the words would come out wrong thereforI preferred being quite most of the time to the extend I was nicknamed the Sphinx any way I am still left-handed except in writing though I can draw with both hands
