Interesting- how many folks on this list are left handed? My hand is
I have "mixed dominance" and it's genetic.  My grandfather had it, as does at 
least one
of my sons.  When I was young I could write with either hand - can't write 
legibly with
either one any more. I could also read upside-down and backward.  I sometimes 
studied upside down because it made me have to concentrate just a bit more. 
My youngest son shares these traits.
My grandfather was a newspaper man who claimed to take down information with 
both hands at once - but I didn't really believe him.  Mixed dominance means 
that neither side of your brain has complete control.  One effect is that I 
tend to stammer - not a Mel Tillis sort of stammer, but an inability to get the 
word out that I want to say. I also have very strong visual memory, but 
frequently can't find the words to go with the image.  It is said that the right 
brain has no language, so lefties are at a loss for words, but I haven't observed 
to be the case.  
It's interesting that left-handedness has been seen to be a threatening 
aberation in some
cultures. Some of the brightest people I know are lefties - maybe that's why 
less gifted
ones saw them as a threat.
