Do not relearn Lefty
Psychology / / August 12, 2017
Statistics show that about a fifth of humanity has left hand is better than the right. Why this is so is not completely elucidated - neuroscientists, neurologists and other specialists continue to study this question.In the meantime, most scientists believe that the left-handed dominant right hemisphere of the brain, and right-handers - quite the contrary - is a master of the left hemisphere.
It is believed that the left hemisphere is mainly responsible for the concrete thinking associated with the language skills and mathematical calculations, and the right - for the figurative, abstract.So, watching a little hand - right or left - toddler reaching for a toy, it is possible with some confidence to assume what it will be - "techie" or "artist".To assume, not exactly set ...
In actual fact, the left-hander is not only no worse than right-handers, but in a sense, even in a better position.Because the prevalence of right cerebral hemisphere in left-handers promotes creativity and original thinking.That
Many prominent personalities who have left a significant mark in the history of mankind were left-handed .For example, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Rubens, Picasso, Joan of Arc, Marilyn Monroe, Gaius Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, Napoleon Bonaparte, Niccolo Paganini and many others.Lefty was and the great physicist Albert Einstein.Lefties were great composers Mozart and Beethoven.This is evidenced by at least the fact that in their works the left-hand is often more complex, so to this day to perform their music left-handed musicians manage better than right-handers.I can not say that is a lefty and Bill Gates - the founder and head of software at Microsoft.
So what to do - it is necessary or not to retrain lefties?
Until recently retrain lefties were commonplace.And especially diligently tried to do kindergarten teachers and teachers in the school.
Unfortunately, this did not interfere with the doctors.
Meanwhile, as we know, left-handedness is a reflection of the current operation of the system of the brain hemispheres.And because the forced change always leads to undesirable, to say the consequences.
anyone who is tempted to retrain lefties to righties, please take into account the fact that, forcing left-hander to work with your right hand, you do not try to change the nature of the preferences of a hand, and the very nature of the inner man.Before you try to do it, try at least one day to fix the right hand and the left to do everything.Probably by the end of the day you will not feel the best way.What is the child?
retrain left-handed child - then change the specific qualities of his inner world, perception of the world, his psyche, which has a negative effect on his condition, emotional well-being and overall health.
During violent relearning you can get significant changes in the child's condition : he will gain character traits such as temper, irritability, it may worsen sleep and appetite.Later, can appear more serious disorders: frequent (often migraine) headaches, apathy.As a result, developing neurotic reactions: bedwetting, stuttering, tics.
So, what we have come to you?
But what ...
Leave lefties alone.Recognize their right to comply with its inner essence, its nature.And you will be quiet, and your children will find no serious consequences of such a nature contrary retraining.
