guys what is your opinion on being left handed and right handed person? their advantages and disadvantages? do you believe on some superstitions that being left handed makes you one good in the arts and right handed persons makes you one good in math? as for me, i'm a left handed person and I can say I'm blessed enough to have the gift of being good enough in painting, sketching, on photographs and creating poems and essays...and am really bad in math in my school years, hehe..truthfully, my idea on being a left or a right handed person relates to a connection between the brain and hand coordination

yeah i heard that too before ( the connection between the brain and hand )..but u can test whether u r a right or left brain dominant (from what i learn from my conseling teacher at my high school), so u can believe it if u want to.. 1. take a piece of paper ( A4 size can do it fine ) 2. roll it so that there' a hole in the center 3.find a/an object in front of u...about 3-5 meter from u or more than that can do it..as long as the object can fits in ur hole of paper that u roll before. 4.put the object in ur hole of paper, (put in from the where u r stand/sit). 5.make sure u open ur 2 eyes. 6.slowly, bring the roll of paper up to ur eyes... 7. if the paper set at ur left side then u r a left brain dominant, n vice versa.. n if the paper set in between ur head that means that u r left n right brain dominant.. try it out..its fun

I'm ambidextrous and its just a pain. Yes I can use either hand for a few things, but the big disadvantage, I have to stop and think which is right and which is left. Ok an example, Driving along- my wife says "turn left here,"I miss the turn because I have to think which way is left. Its definately a brain problem!
