Left-handed people are ‘higher earners’
Left-handed people are ‘higher earners’ - Sunday Times - Times Online
Heard about this from Dan Pink's blog. As a lefty, I'm glad to hear this.
Interesting that the article also says:
"...when the researchers examined females they found the situation was reversed, with women paying a significant penalty for being left-handed. They earn 4% less than women with dominant right hands."
Strange. Because I remember reading somewhere that you're more likely to find a left-handed man than a left-handed woman. Don't know if that affects things statistically or not... but there y'go!
Interestingly, in my first creative writing job I came across more than my fair share of left-handed women as coworkers. Such is the nature of creative work. I told each one of them they were very rare!
