Handedness, symptom reporting, and accident susceptibility

Handedness, symptom reporting, and accident susceptibility

Journal of Clinical Psychology 50(3): 389-392

A cross-sectional design was used to examine the relationship among handedness, self-reported symptoms, and accident susceptibility in a nonclinical sample (N = 285). Left-handedness was not found to be associated with elevated symptom reporting (and, consequently, health problems) and accident susceptibility. Thus, the present findings do not support the hypothesis that left-handedness is accompanied by reduced physical fitness or accident proneness.
