Is being Ambidextrous a super human power?


For those who are new to this, ambidexterity is the state of being equally adaptive to both right and left parts of your body (mostly hands). It is one of the most famous varieties of cross-exercising your brain. Few people are born ambidextrous, while few of them are able to teach themselves to be ambidextrous, by practicing equally with both hands.



It will not be too far, when the interviewer will ask you whether you are an ambidextrous or not. Whether you can write with two hands or not. Because this may be the only way to classify yourself different from the ordinaries (with high capability of your brain).


It is a known fact that the cerebral hemispheres is divided into right hemisphere and left hemisphere, both specialized in performing different tasks. The right side of the brain controls muscles on the left side of the body and the left side of the brain controls muscles on the right side of the body. According to the survey carried out world wide, 90% of the people are right handed. The dominant functions of the Left Hemisphere are language, math and logic while that of the Right Hemisphere are spatial abilities, face recognition, visual imagery and music.


People train themselves to perform a particular task with both the hands, or probably perform different tasks simultaneously with two hands. By this act, both the left as well as right hemisphere of the brain is given a tough enactment skills.


On the contrary, studies showed that ambidextrous children are twice as likely to do badly at school and suffer from attention problems. Ambidextrous children twice as likely to have attention deficit than the single handed ones. Another survey reflected that children who are ambidextrous, using either hand with the same ease, may be more likely to have mental health, language and academic problems than their peers.


Ambidexterity may form an art for those who train themselves as an adult but may be a topic of issue for born ambidextrous.
