MOSCOW, September 23. /ITAR-TASS/. A total of 85% of Russians are right-handed, five percent are left-handed and ten percent are ambidexters, or people able to use their both hands with equal facility, according to the results of a poll conducted by the Public Opinion foundation that were made public on Tuesday.
As many as 87% of the polled said that right-handed persons should not be retrained like it had been done before. Seven percent, on the contrary, said it should be done. Notably, this idea is shared by six percent of the right-handed persons, five percent of the left-handed, and nine percent of ambidexters.
Almost all devices, instruments, machines, computers, stationery, etc. are designed to be comfortable for right-handed people, but the majority of the respondents /52%/ said they did not think it was expedient to manufacture such goods designed specifically for the left-handed.
