国际左撇子日 | 我真的太太太难了 左撇子

今天还是个节日?

没错!

如果你是左撇子,

今天就是你的节日~

每年的8月13日是国际左撇子日

这个有40多年历史的节日

旨在提醒大家注意左撇子在生活中遭遇的不便

消除人们对左撇子的种种误解

1975年8月13日

美国堪萨斯州的一群左撇子

建立了名叫“左撇子国际”的组织

他们设想把全世界左撇子联合起来

共同争取左撇子的权益

一年后

他们把这一天确定为国际左撇子日

Today is a chance to tell your family and friends how proud you are of being left-handed.

August 13 marks International Left-Handers Day, which was first observed in 1976 to celebrate the uniqueness of the lefties and raise awareness of the inconvenience they may encounter in their daily lives.

据不完全统计

全球目前约有10%的人习惯用左手

作为人群里的“稀有对象”

左撇子有特殊的优势

但同时也面临很多烦恼

比如——

在学校上课,却看到了这样的教室↓

用剪刀剪纸,可能剪了个“寂寞”↓

用左手写字,才能知道铅笔真正的“威力”↓

用鼠标要很努力↓

吃饭可能会变成“打架”现场↓

键盘中的数字区突然变得“鸡肋”↓

遇到了这样的杯子,有点无从下嘴↓

开车的时候,挂档和拿水杯都太太太难了↓

用单反相机拍照,不得不用右手↓

Almost everything seems to be designed for the right-handed from scissors and desks to spiral-bound notebooks and single-lens cameras.

Here we compiled a list of annoying problems that every left-hander may face daily.

在美国系列动画片《辛普森一家》中

辛普森的邻居内德开了一家左撇子店

专门经营左撇子用品

而在现实中

也逐渐出现了许多

左撇子的专用小物件

为他们的生活提供了许多便利

一起来了解下

↓↓↓

剪刀

手表

线圈笔记本

电脑桌

甚至还有扑克牌

In the popular animated series "The Simpsons", character Ned Flanders set up a shop that sold only left-handed items to recognize the difficulties among lefties. While in real life, there are some stores specializing in left-handed products, some of which can even be bought online.

关于“左撇子”的冷知识

-1-

左撇子不一定更聪明。无论是根据以往的研究,还是从神经学的角度来看,左撇子和右撇子的认知能力总体并没有太大区别。

The left-handed are not necessarily smarter. From both historical research and a neurological point of view, the general cognitive abilities of left-handers and right-handers are not much different.

-2-

双手可并用也不能说明智商 高 。2006年的一项研究表明,双手都灵活的人空间认知能力最低,有阅读障碍的可能性最高。

Being able to use both hands may not show high intelligence. People who are ambidextrous appeared to have the lowest spatial cognitive ability and the highest possibility of dyslexia in a 2006 study of 255,100 samples.

-3-

每10个人中可能就有一个左撇子。全球平均有10%-12%的人喜欢用左手。在中国,左撇子人数估计超过8000万。

Out of every 10 people, there could already be a left-handed person. On average, 10 to 12 percent of the global population prefer to use their left hand. In China, the estimated number of such people stands at over 80 million.

-4-

强行纠正左撇子可能会对大脑造成不可逆转的损害。相当多的人在经过矫正后会患上口吃、诵读困难或小儿多动症,甚至还会产生难以抹去的心理阴影。

Forcibly correcting left-handed people may cause irreversible damage to the brain. A considerable number of people will suffer from stuttering, dyslexia or pediatric hyperactivity after being corrected, and even more serious cases can involve indelible psychological shadows.

-5-

眼睛和耳朵等器官也有左撇子。当你拿起电话的时候,会用哪只耳朵接听?据悉,有40%的人习惯用“左耳”,30%的人习惯用“左眼”,20%的人习惯用“左脚”。

Left-handedness appears in other organs. Which ear do you use when you pick up the phone? Apparently, 40 percent of people are "left-eared," 30 percent are "left-eyed," and 20 percent are "left-footed."

-6-

各行各业都有许多名人是左撇子,其中包括亚里士多德、牛顿、达芬奇、莫扎特、比尔·盖茨和贾斯汀·比伯。

There are many celebrities in every field that are left-handed. They include Aristotle, Isaac Newton, Leonardo da Vinci, Mozart, Bill Gates and Justin Bieber.

祝左撇子们节日快乐!
