Full disclosure – I’m not left-handed.

In fact, only about 10-15% of the world’s population is and it’s been like this since the Stone Age. Archeologists can tell from wear patterns on prehistoric tools.

What’s weird is that in some professions, that statistic doesn’t always hold true. In Major League Baseball, 25% of players are lefties, but only 5% of the PGA Tour swings left. And there are some studies that show creativity linked to being left-handed.

What does being left-handed have to do with copywriting or marketing? Nothing really.

Sometimes, it’s just good to learn something completely random. You never know when it might come in… handy.
