As a very left-handed person, I was very pleased to read the following two bit of information.
Charles Sander Pierce, the founder of semiotics and pragmatism, was an accomplished mathematician, astronomer, and logician. This visionary lefty is widely regarded as an innovator in many fields, especially the methodology of research and the philosophy of science.
Dr. Alan Searleman, of St. Lawrence University in New York, found that people who were “true left-handers”, who did everything on their left side, from kicking a football to picking up a glass of water, scored one third higher on vocabulary tests and twice as well on problem solving tasks.
How cool is that, right?
Then I read that there is only one species on Earth that is left-hand dominant. The Gorilla.
(And no Jon, I don’t know what ‘semiotics’ is either.)
