Happy International Left Handers Day!

Today, August 13, is International Left Handers Day. It was first observed in 1976 and is meant to promote awareness of the inconveniences faced by left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world – only 7-10% of the world’s population is left-handed. They have to adapt to use right-handed tools and objects in today’s society and this day celebrates their uniqueness and differences.

Left-handed people are right-brained (the side that is all about creativity). They are likely to be more visual than language-based, making them ideal for artistic pursuits. Did you know that left-handed people may be more likely to develop schizophrenia because of their enhanced creativity and imagination? Stuttering and dyslexia also occur more often in left-handers (particularly if they are forced to change their writing hand when they’re young). They usually have higher IQ, are better at multi-tasking and also have better memories. Another strange fact – they adjust more easily to seeing underwater.

There are many famous people that are left-handed. Especially American Presidents, for some reason – Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Gerald Ford, Harry Truman, Herbert Hoover and James Garfield. Some famous left-handed artists include Leonardo di Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Aristotle, Vincent van Gogh; musicians include Kurt Cobain, Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Jimi Hendrix, Lady Gaga, Paul Simon, Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, David Bowie, Eminem, Noel Gallagher, George Michael, Sting; footballers include Lionel Messi, Pele, Maradona, Bobby Charlton; comedians include Jerry Seinfeld, Charlie Chaplain, Jay Leno; geniuses include Marie Curie, Isaac Newton, Alan Turing. Even billionaires Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg are all left-handed. But let’s talk actors, below is a list of 10 world famous left-handers:
