I headed to my parents’ house after work last night, and while I was hanging out, my dad suddenly thought of something that he had been meaning to show me. He ran to the next room and came back with this:
In case it’s not immediately apparent, I’m left-handed.
The article detailed some new studies that have come out recently which have argued the following points:
1. Left-handed people are more prone to neurological disorders, such as schizophrenia and ADHD.
2. Left-handed people earn about 10% less than right-handed people.
3. Left-handed people are more apt to have greater divergent aptitude (ie, creativity.).
4. Left-handed people don’t necessarily die younger than those who are right-handed.
So what am I taking away from this?
Well, maybe it explains why I was a theatre major.
Also, my crazy is legitimate. And you’d better believe I’m going to reference this article every time I forget to do something at work or have a PMS flare up. And now we know that I’ll be around for a looong time to do it.
So thanks, Wall Street Journal!
