IQwise I don't think that there is a difference. But lefties definitely have different parts of the brain more developed. Hence, we are different.

Every lefty I know is fairly intelligent, so yah, I guess if I had to choose one, I'd say we have a higher iq.

Clearly, left handed people have great senses of humor too!

Lower because despite the historical evidence, Communism has never worked out for the better. But they keep trying.

My gut feeling is that there should be no difference. My left-handed husband is brilliant, though.

I am a lefty and a righty. Does that make me extraordinary or bi?

Did you have one of those "operations"

I am a lefty and although my people have been oppressed by righties for so long we have excelled and outsmarted the right handed people that worked so hard to keep us down for so long.

I believe you're always a member of Mensa. Whether you're current on dues is another story, no?

No idea if there's any actual correlation, but my husband is left handed and has an IQ of 150 and is really intelligent, so I guessed high.

Apparently there's essentially no difference, although I remember hearing for years that lefties were more likely to have a higher IQ. I know that in my high school which had 4 sections for each class, the section that was clearly for the "smarter"

kids (& took the equivalent of AP courses) never had enough left-handed desks. There were 5 for a class of 30, which is ample for the % of lefties in the general population. There were 7-8 lefties in that section. But that's just one anecdotal datum.

My Mother was forced to use her non-sinister hand during grade school but reverted back as quickly as she could!

I was fortunate, neither my schools nor my parents bought into that idea that you could just change something like that by forcing it. I think the concept was on its way out when I was a kid, although it seems to have persisted longer in some places.

There is a connection between being a leftie and being gay though, isn't there?
