Previously labelled as sinister folk not to be trusted, left-handed people these days are somewhat more celebrated.
That and, despite living in a world that is very much designed for their right-handed counterparts - they have some pretty high-profile compatriots.
Yup, from Barack Obama, to Prince William and Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates - if you're more inclined to use your left-hand then you're certainly in good company.
HereMummyPages brings you the FIVE really great reasons why it's the best:
1) You earn more money (if you're a man):
According to studies, left-handed males who have gone to university earn 13 percent more than their right-handed counterparts.
Although oddly the results are quite different for women: they earn 5 percent less than women who are right-handed.
2) Half of all cats are left-handed:
Anything from 10 - 30 percent of humans are left-handed (depending on where you are in the world and what research you look at) - but not so for felines.
Yes, 50 percent of cats are left-pawed, according to research.
3) You're a natural leader:
Five of the last seven US presidents - Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George HW Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Gerald Ford - are or were left-handed.
They're well-represented in royal circles too, examples include Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Prince William.
4) You have to overcome adversity:
From birth, you're being trained to think outside the standard right-handed box - something which helps you develop all sorts of skills that in turn encourages you navigate better the challenges of life.
Indeed, a combination of environmental forces and neurobiology combine to make lefties predisposed to be trailblazers.
5) You see better underwater:
Bizarre but true: when you’re underwater left-handed folk see better. It's not quite clear why this is so, scientists think it has something to do with a different part of the brain being dominant in left-handed individuals.
