So , lets hope a passing left/right-handednesss-cognitive- ability-expert passes by and calls in to comment.....that would be nice !
My guess would be yes it would as we learn by sight and sound.. so the more you see and take in with those things maybe more dominant a memory also. That is only a guess though!
The Left-Handed AdvantageThey May Have Higher Health Risks, But Lefties Enjoy Element of Surprise By AMANDA ONIONFeb. 17, 2005 It's not easy being a lefty. Statistics show left-handed people are more likely to be schizophrenic, alcoholic, delinquent, dyslexic, and have Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as mental disabilities. They're also more likely to die young and get into accidents. So if evolutionary theory dictates survival of the fittest, why do lefties still exist? According to new theories, what left-handed people (and other animals) may lack in fitness, they make up by being different. Famous Left-Handed Athletes Researchers in France recently took an interest in the disproportionately high number of left-handed athletes who thrive in sports involving direct one-on-one contact, such as baseball (think Babe Ruth), tennis (think John McEnroe) and boxing (think Oscar de la Hoya or the fictional Rocky Balboa). Charlotte Faurie and Michel Raymond of the University of Montpellier in France figured the same reason so many left-handed people are successful in such sports could also explain a possible higher success rate among lefties in primitive combat. This means that, back in the days when fighting was an important part of survival and winning mates, the rare left-hander may have come out on top more often. Watch That Left HookHere's the thinking: Most left-handed people would be practiced in fighting right-handed people (since right-handed people make up the majority), while most right-handed fighters would not be as prepared to fight someone who favors their left side. Advantage: lefties. "The fact that left-handers are less common means they have a surprise effect," said Faurie.
