These are the most notable leftys in history. Today, roughly 11% of the world's population is left handed. That number surged throughout the 20th century as adults stopped forcing left handed children to use their right hand. Left handedness has become unusually prominent within some professions. Generally speaking, left handed people today tend to be seen as more "right brained". A recent study showed that college educated left handers in the United States earn on average 10-15% more than their right handed equivalents.
