Something Surprising About Lefties

...something you wouldn't guess: they're SHY - Something we wouldn't have guessed: people who are left-handed are more shy and easily embarrassed than the rest of us.

In recent research, more lefties than righties said "yes" to statements like, "I worry about making mistakes."

But that doesn't mean that lefties don't have fun: Both righties and lefties said "yes" at equal rates to statements like "I often act on the spur of the moment" and "I crave excitement and new sensations."

BBC News quotes researcher Lynn Wright as saying, "Left-handers are more likely to hesitate whereas right-handers tend to jump in a bit more. In left-handers the right half of the brain is dominant, and it is this side that seems to control negative aspects of emotion. In right-handers the left brain dominates."
