Are you left handed too? As the wife of a lefty and the mother of a lefty (both creative engineers)I’ve come to the conclusion that lefties and righties don’t think alike.
I belonged to a quilting guild at one time, and I noticed that when we were all seated at a frame together, the lefties had to be at the end, of course. I also noticed that the lefties in the group were some of our most creative sewers. They had all figured out clever shortcuts to accomplish piecing that was difficult to accomplish in the traditional way. These were methods that my right handed brain had to really struggle to copy. But, I found I could do them easily if I followed their directions step by step.
So, it dawned on me why my husband and I could never agree on how to accomplish a task. We are thinking about it from the opposite direction. So, I went home and announced to my son (who was studying for his doctorate in engineering) that he should look for a left handed woman to marry because she would be easier to get along with.
He just rolled his eyes at me and said, “I don’t want to marry another engineer, and you wouldn’t want me to bring home an ARTIST, would you?” He’s happily married and expecting his 5th child. At least 3 of those kids are lefties too!
And my husband’s left handed sister taught pottery for years.
Ambidextrous. My handwriting is better with my right hand, but I think that’s mostly a matter of practice.
