We’re not just smarter, we’re evolutionarily *better*

Well, that title might be giving lefties too much credit, but some researchers are saying lefties are better for some tasks – gaming and flying jets, for example.

Left-handed people often perform better than right-handers at fast or difficult tasks that involve lots of information or stimuli, new research suggests.

For instance left-handers might be better at playing fast computer games, talking while driving in heavy traffic and piloting a jet fighter – activities that need both hemispheres of the brain to process information.

Note for those of you looking for other advantages to being left-handed, I don’t think masturbation is better for lefties – I don’t see either hemisphere being important there other than driving the desire.
