Left handed people
Although 95% of right-handed people have left-hemisphere dominance for language, 18.8% of left-handed people have right-hemisphere dominance for language function.

.
Left handers are better at 3 dimensional perception and thinking.

But this leads to the
famous question
!!
Is it true that Left-Handed people are smarter than Right-Handed people?
