That’s because¬†ACCORDING TO AN ECONOMIST AT HARVARD, people who are left-handed will¬†EARN LESS than their right-handed counterparts.

The study found that generally speaking, left-handed people are less cognitive than right-handed people.

And being less-cognitive means that lefties need more schooling… and that if a left-handed person when to school for one more year – for 13 years instead of the normal 12 years – that would be enough to get a leftie to earn the same as a rightie.

In other words, lefties can find themselves earning about 10-12% less than their right-handed co-workers.

This doesn’t mean that lefties aren’t smart. They just don’t think the same way as others do.
