10 Most Famous Left Handed People

Left handed people make the 12% of the earth’s population, have you ever thought about this rare of an occasion when you’re shaking hands with a southpaw. You probably didn’t think about it because there are no aesthetic differences for you to notice that makes a righty a righty and a lefty a lefty.

But, there are some minor distinguishing traits that you might notice if you follow the lives of some of the most influential, intelligent, and famous people with a dominant left hand.

They Are A Creative Bunch

According to research published in the American Journal of Psychology, there is some evidence that left-handed people have the upper hand in at least one creative facet: They’re better at divergent thinking, a method of idea generation that explores many possible solutions.

Lefties Get Easily Scared Though

People whose left hands are dominant tend to be more affected by fear than people who use their right hands.

And Are More Likely To Be Short Tempered

If you just can’t let go of that spat you had with your right-handed pal (but he seemed to move on just fine), you may be able to blame it on your left-handedness. According to a small study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, lefties are more prone to having negative emotions. 

They Make Successful Leaders

Of the eight most recent U.S Presidents, 4 have been left handed.

They Can Be Aloof

It is seen that most of this minority, having big aspirations and bigger careers, have been found to be very reserved and socially withdrawn.

More Prone To Allergies

Studies show that lefties are more susceptible to allergies and asthma than right-handed people.

Now, let’s have a look on the famous southpaws who have made the Lefty minority proud
