I was wondering how many people here are left handed?
I read tonight that there is a possible genetic bias for left handed people. The gene LRRTM1 has been implicated, as well as schizophrenia, autism, and other neurological disorders. Only 7-10% of the population is left-handed. However, I'm a leftie, and in my line of work (aviation), nearly 50% of pilots are left-handed. Left handed women are even more rare.
Anyone care to share their thoughts, or which hand they prefer?

Jennifer, Are you a pilot? Anyway, that is interesting about pilots, (and presidents) I'd never heard that. Right handed here too.

Mom, her dad, 3 of 15 grandchildren are lefties...I'm not....but pretty good with left hand, too.

7 people out of a sample of 23...that's 30%. Not a large enough sample to be statistically significant, I suppose, but above the average.
I'm more of a grease monkey, but I do fly too.

I'm right handed and so is my granddaughter. But my son and my dad are ambidextrous(sp??)
