Lefties are outnumbered 10-to-1 against righties. Today gives them one more reason to feel special since Monday is International Left-Handers Day.
International Left-Handers Day is the creation of the Left-Handers Club, which formed in 1992 "to keep members in touch with developments, make their views known to manufacturers and others, provide a help & advice line, to promote research into left-handedness and development of new left-handed items," according to the group's website.
The occasion is a day "when left-handers everywhere can celebrate their sinistrality and increase public awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed," The Left-Handers Club said on the website.
Being left-handed has its advantages and fallbacks.
While left-handed people are not as common as their right-handed counterparts, they are more likely to be outstanding in music, math and sports, ABC News reported.
On the flip side, lefties are more likely to be "schizophrenic, alcoholic, delinquent, dyslexic, and have Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as mental disabilities" than righties, according to the network.
"Handedness influences the way people think and feel, and how thoughts and feelings are organized in their brains, Daniel Casasanto, assistant professor of psychology at the New School for Social Research in New York City, told ABC News. ""It turns out to matter in a number of ways."
Lefties may be the minority, but they make up for it in star power. From President Obama to Lady Gaga, check out other famous left-handed people by clicking through the slideshow above.
