Left handed? Rightly Gifted

Left handers always knew that they were Right!

Research by National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) found that left-handed men with some educational background earned 15% more than their right-handed counterparts.

While those with college education earned 26% more than the right-handed peers.

Although there is no substantial theory behind this, but statistics do prove that left-handed men (or southpaws as they are called) are more creative and intelligent.

There are quite a good no. of left-handed celebrities too:

  • Gandhi
  • Leonardo da Vinci
  • Phil Collins
  • Douglas Adams
  • Eminem
  • Ricky Martin
  • Amitabh Bachchan
  • Charlie Chaplin
  • Napolean Bonaparte,
  • Osama Bin Laden (wonder why!)

Ironically, the NBER finding doesn’t have any specific goodies for left-handed women.
