This piece of writing serves as one of the reasons I started my blog: to get a chance to practise my written English. So if you are not interested, please do not waste your time, you have more important things to do.
The right side of human body is more popular in every corner of the world. The theory I like the most is the brain theory. Since human somehow developed their language abilities on the left hemisphere of the brain, over time people begin to use their right side more, because it is simply more efficient that way. See? Science can explain it.
But what science cannot explain is why there are still left-handed people. It is the difference in the brain that makes these people prefer to use the other hand.
Whether you are right-handed or left-handed or "both-handed" is something that belongs to you yourself. If not taught by other people, right-handed people still prefers to use right hand, and vice versa.
The problem is you cannot forcefully change the hand people prefer to use, something which, is harmful, and has been done to me and millions of other people.
Being left- or right-handed is natural, however, converting it is not.
According to my observations, there is no converted lefty without some kind of problem, which lies mentally, psychologically, and even physically.
I read this article several days ago and it made me very sad. How do I feel? Anger is not enough to describe it.
Here’s another research:
The Primary and Secondary Consequences of Converting Handedness
The fact that the converting of inborn handedness which has been and is being carried out on the basis of societal prejudices (i.e. a mechanical adherence to traditionalism; would-be reasons of practicality; laziness; ignorance; and often even reasons with a religious-ideological background) has massive consequences, especially if one is using the non-dominant hand to write with. This converting is contrary to the natural state of the human being. Converting handedness does not result in a converting of brain dominance. Instead, it results in an over-loading of the non-dominant half of the brain and an under-loading of the other half. Accordingly, there are also resulting difficulties in transference in the corpus callosum which in turn could probably result in the appearance of the widest range of primary consequences.
Writing is a process of the greatest complexity. Moreover, because it involves many different brain functions, it is also one of the most difficult tasks; one which only human beings have developed and come to grips with. The pre-dominant use of the non-dominant hand leads to complex functional disturbances, inhibitions, blockages, and an over-burdening of the entire brain. During writing, the greatest variety of cerebral skills are included here. Examples are the fine motor skills, speech, the pictorial representation of imagination of the series of letters as well as the simultaneous chain of thoughts, associations, graphic representations, memories, and recall of previously learned material which also run throughout. Scarcely any other human undertaking is comparable to writing in its multifaceted connections between the most differing brain functions. Accordingly, it is understandable why the overburdening that comes from converting handedness can lead to tremendous disturbances.
The possible primary consequences of converting handedness are as follows:
- memory disorders (especially in the recall of learned material)
- disturbances in concentration (being easily tired)
- legasthenic problems or dyslexia (i.e. problems in reading and writing)
- spatial disorientation (uncertainty concerning the left and right)
- disorders in fine motor skills that manifest themselves in handwriting
- disturbances in speech (ranging from stammering through stuttering)
These primary consequences can then transform into various differing secondary consequences:
- inferiority complexes
- overcompensation through heightened performance
- contrariness; an oppositional and provocational manner; (e.g. the class clown in school; and the persistent, compulsive wise-cracker in adulthood)
- various distinctive disorders in behavior
- bedwetting and nail-biting
- emotional problems lasting into adulthood with neurotic and/or psycho-somatic symptomology
- disorders in the personality profile
Of course, all of the primary and secondary difficulties listed above could also appear without the converting of handedness and they are just as prevalent in left-handers as in right-handers. However, as has been found in practice, through the additional converting of handedness these difficulties, are incalculably increased.
Thus, the converting of handedness negatively intervenes into and inhibits the course of the cerebral processes. It drives people to continually use more energy to mobilize their intelligence than left-handed or right-handed people who have not been disabled by the consequences of converting would find necessary.
The level of intelligence itself is not diminished. Only its manifestation is disturbed. For example, in the formulation and expression of thoughts, the recall of learned material in writing and speaking, etc., at least thirty percent or more energy is required. This finding has been substantiated by practical experience, observation, and comparison.
At first, the relationship between fatigue and the ability to regenerate and concentrate were of interest. The data gathered showed a strong dependency upon physiological variables. Moreover, the hypothetical energy increase of 30% needed by converted left-handers was almost always surpassed. This result become even more significant when the test design was expanded to include factors dependent upon memory, the ability to learn, the storage and the recall of material. In some instances, the values revealed were even twice or three times as great. A direct correlation between the age, gender, health, and personality characteristics of the subjects as well as their intelligence, education, and profession become manifest. Even the time of the testing and ethnicity of the subject were influential. The issue of lateralization of the cerebral hemispheres in connection with the converting of handedness is not manageable within a research project. Instead, in reality, it constitutes its own field of research. For the hands-on work of the Consulting Center, neither exact numerical value nor precise percentage is relevant, however. Rather, the very substantiation of the finding that converted left-handers in comparison to those people who have not been converted continually have larger energy requirements is both necessary and of much greater importance. This finding is also similarly relevant, of course, for converted right-handers.
After reading through all these I became silent. So I, as well as other unfortunate converted left-handed people, were nothing but a victim.
No wonder why I had difficulties learning and doing lots of things, it all explains!
Damn it! If only I could started it all over again.
Oh, here’s something new, maybe I should learn something from this boy:
I’m 13 and my IQ is like 165 and i play sports and i am an artist! and im above average in math! but why is there so much controversy over left handed people and right handed people? why is the world made for right handed people? why do some people try to make their children write with their right hand and not their left? I don’t understand this left handed or right handed thing! Why is the subject even brought up? I think it is ridicolis ( sorry bout the typos!)but we should just forget bout this whole thing! it makes no sense at all! we shouldn’t be worrying about what hand we write with! who cares? it doesnt matter!I mean like people are making a big deal bout this whole thing!!!! it doesnt change who you are inside so this is the stupidest thing ever really! it is!
Less worry, less problem.
