Handedness and stress-related health problems

Handedness and stress-related health problems

Perceptual and Motor Skills 87(3 Pt 1): 1042

Response of groups of 163 right-, 22 mixed-, and 20 left-handed university students to the seven symptom subscales of a 48-item Stress-related Health Problems Scale were used to test the hypothesis that left-handedness is associated with an increased risk of stress-related health problems. Since only one of the 21 possible statistical tests computed barely reached statistical significance, there is no meaningful relationship between handedness and stress-related health problems.
