So I don't know if I am a true lefty While I write with my left hand most everything else is right handed I guess we need a definition of what left handed is.
I do almost everything with my left hand. But using a mouse I do with right (mostly because that's how a computer mouse is designed and switching it to the left with cords and all and switching the buttons is a real pain to do every time if you use central computers). Touch pads and touch screen mostly with left. But my phone both with left and right, depending on what I'm doing / holding with my left hand. Also sports and fine motor with left.
Even using a Wiimote with left while it is actually designed for right hand usage if using a nunchuck (like in Skyward Sword where it is displayed right and Link holds it sword right).
- Approx 20% of the world is left-handed.
- Lefties reportedly have a slightly shorter lifespan.
Just means lefties are cooler and get more done in a shorter time frame.
One suggestion I've seen some penmakers do is make their pens either with no markings or brandings ambidextrous...that way people can see the label either way and therefore maybe buy it.
