    Left handed people are usually very creative and artistic. They are also prone to being ambidextrous, which is very helpful. Unfortunately, there are typically more left than right handed serial killers. Also, the left side was frowned upon in history. It meant clumsy or awkward, like the term two left feet. The French word "gauche" means left, pertaining to the word gaucherie which means awkward. The lefties used to be scolded but are now accepted as unique and there are many facilitating contrivances these days like left handed scissors and steno notepads.
