LEFT-HANDERS MORE INTELLIGENT?
Some researchers claim that
we are more intelligent and eloquent that our right-handed counterparts. In tests
conducted by Dr. Alan Searleman from St Lawrence University in New York, he found
that left-handers can be considerably more intellectually gifted. There were more
left-handed people with IQs over 140 than right-handed people - which is the "genius"
bracket. This is perhaps why there are more "lefties" in creative professions
- such as music, art and writing - and more left-handed astronauts and leaders
than would be expected.
To see the results of our
survey where we investigated a link between being left-handed and the choices
people make in work and other activities, click
have also spoken to MENSA, the society for people with high IQs (Intelligence
Quotient, showing tested intellingence relative to the normal level of 100 - you
need to have a tested IQ of over 140 to join MENSA). They told us that they do
not keep records of their members' handedness but were willing to give as a Mini
Quiz for our visitors to try, but please note that this is not an IQ TEST.
