Top 10 Most Fascinating Facts About Ambidextrous People

The Top Ten
1 They comprise less than 1% of the population

It's pretty rare to have this trait, making them rarer than left-handed people, but only if you have the capability to write with both hands. According to the American Psychological Association, 10% of the world's population is left-handed, and 1% of the world's population is ambidextrous.

2 They have symmetrical brains

That pretty much explains how they can perform tasks simultaneously with both hands. It would be so cool if I could use one hand to write down some important information and use my other hand to doodle simultaneously.

3 They are more likely to have synesthesia

Synesthesia is essentially the crossing of senses with one another, or cross-sensory perception. For example, people with synesthesia can taste color and see sound.

4 They can experience greater age decline

According to a study published in the Brain and Behavior journal, they can experience greater age-related decline in the hippocampus and amygdala.

It's interesting how a few of these facts also apply to left-handed people.

Due to the stigma about left-handedness being associated with witchcraft, many lefties in the Middle Ages taught themselves to use their right hand. In other cases, people became ambidextrous after injuring their dominant hand.

9 They are more likely to be bisexual

According to an internet survey by BBC Science and Nature, 9.2% of ambidextrous men and 15.6% of ambidextrous women are said to be attracted to both sexes, while 4% of right-handed men and 4.5% of left-handed men, as well as 6.2% of right-handed women and 6.3% of left-handed women, are reported to be bisexual.
