FAVOURING your left hand does not mean you are some sort of creative genius.
Left-handers enjoy listing names like Beethoven, Da Vinci, Paul McArtney and, at a push, David Cameron as evidence of their special gifts.
Handologist Tom Logan said: “As a southpaw I liked to believe I had some unique qualities other than being amusingly bad at cutting things out.
“But after extensive research I discovered that although there are numerous gifted left-handers, any clever people not in that category must – by a process of elimination – prefer their right hand.
“In conclusion, having terrible handwriting is not the same as being awesome.”
