actually,i just checked and i think they are.. cause this is what it said :(Yes, left handed people are much smarter individuals because they use a part of the brain that most people do not. For further information, you can visit: http://www.oprah.com/health/Dr-Oz-Answers-Burning-Medical-Questions/15) so yay for meee,i actually am kind of smart =D and im a lefty

Maybe.. because that might take more work for the left part of the brain, which is known to be the more "logical" or "smart" side :0

That is just a stereotype. Just like how people say that blondes are dumb. I'm a brunette and I can be dumb at times, but it is a stereotype. Anyone can be smart.

I've never heard this before, but I agree it has nothing to do with intelligence!

Sorry RIP, no stereotype here, statistically speaking, they are smarter.

Rolly- statistically speaking, it doesn't matter what side of the brain you use. Everyone is smart and CAN be smart. Now you don't have to agree with me, but I know that it's just a stereotype.
Report as
Sorry to break the news to you guys, but not everybody can be smart. there are several classifications of intelligence. a person born a mongoloid has no chance to develop cognitive thinking; nor do morons or idiots (these are scientific terms, not slurs). if you do have a chance to be smart, go for it! I think i'm fairly smart, but i knew i wasn't going to be an engineer or chemist.

now, to more so answer the question. some research has said lefthanders more so use the right (more creative) side of the brain; and righthanders the left (more logical). and there are many types of intelligence - an artist could do brilliant works, yet not function in society. and the opinion of someone's intelligence can be based upon behaviors and traits someone else may admire.

I highly doubt it. Never heard that one before, but I really don't think your intellect/IQ has anything to do with being a "righty or lefty." But, hey... believe whatever makes you feel smarter, that's good enough for me! :8-)

Hey Z, are you really ambisinestrous? (I find the word "ambidextrous" racist since it literally mean "having two right hands). You really don't have a sister? Not even a half one? Bummer.
Report as
Yes, I really am.. I had a compound fracture on my left wrist in first grade and had to do everything right handed.. Got so good at it, that by the time my left wrist healed, I pretty much kept doing all the right handed things.. It took a while to balance, and now I use both..
Report as
And no single sisters... Lol...

Z, so you were actually left handed until your accident? Well, it worked out great for you. In my case, my mom (a psychologist) wanted me to be ambi... Whatever. So she started giving me the rattler and toys on one hand first and then the other. The thing is that my parents separated before she could finish so I am mostly left handed but do a lot of things with my right hand. When I dream though, I dream I am right handed. What are you in your dreams?
Report as
Lol.. That's what we women say.. Ahahahahaha ... Hey K...

Yep.. Left handed, through infant, toddler, preschool, Kinder and almost all of first grade... Then the (gasp) gymnastic monkey bar accident.. And voila.. Ambidextrous.. What am I in my dreams.. No doubt left handed.. And funny.. And...

lol this whole ambi convo.. actually rick below is enroute to what i have experienced in sports psychology and how it relates to real life situations
but thats another story... for another time

of course my takes are usually dif than the esteemed.. hence overcoming the preconceived and anchor theory built in.. never one to "settle" for what others think/believe or say.. then there's my other half.. there's always .. that (YCMW)

Hi again, FS!! I answered a "blonde" Q yesterday, too. Something about... why is there discrimination (er... somethin' like that) against blondes..? Said I don't think that's true & it's an outdated stereotype... I never hear "dumb blondes" anymore, must've went out of style... OR... maybe there are enough intelligent blondes around that have proven the stereotype to be incorrect, and THAT is why I never hear it...
:8-)

Right-handed people have always distrusted left-handedness (look up the definition of "sinister" if you don't believe me). The old USSR didn't even allow it, no matter what the individual's natural predilection was. Thankfully, baseball changed that. God bless Abner Doubleday...,. or whoever invented the damn thing.

I like that too... "sinister." It may even be a SIN in the Catholic church. My stepfather went to Catholic school, went back in the day when the nuns could still beat the kids. He was left-handed by nature, but the nuns beat him into being right-handed. Gotta love the Catholic church... hahahaha!! :8)
