Random Facts concerning the Character Library

Recommended Posts

I don't know what possessed me to go through the Character Library and tally up all the left-handed, right-handed and amidextrous characters, but after spending all that time, I fully intend to share my findings .

 

I believe I might do similar things, perhaps next time with hair colour, eye colour, etc. I'll post them all in here, rather then spam the forum with new topics for every tally.

 

Anyway, onto the facts and figures of character handiness!

 

As of October 1st 2007, the Character Library contains 94 profiles.

 

Of these, 59% are right-handed, 27% are ambidextrous, and the remaining 14% are, of course, left-handed.

 

I find it interesting that, according to wikipedia, AD's population of left-handers isn't too far off the number shown in various studies. (Source)

 

However, unless most of our ambidextrous characters were originally right-handed, we're pretty far of the supposed percentage of 85-90. (Source)

 

I guess such things have changed by the Cosmic Era, as amidextrous people seem to be more common then lefties, and really, being ambidextrous from birth is suppose to be pretty rare, and learning to use both hands with a relevantly similar amount of skill isn't easy. (Source 1, 2)

 

Well, that's that. If you've any more facts and figures you'd like me to work on, or have an suggestions for other things I can study, please let me know.

Haha, nice work there Darkness I'd agree that its quite random of you to do this as well and on that note, I'll keep you in mind if there's any strange or random topic which needs some studying (or debating )

So long as you don't want me involved in the debating, I'm happy to help. Lol, I'm hopeless at debating - can never get my point across... But I love researching facts andfigures to support my arguments. 

 

Doesn't make much sense, does it?

I was certainly thinking of doing eye colour - I'll make it my next ah, 'project'. I suppose that's really what this is, isn't it? A mini project that I've set myself

 

Thanks for the suggestion liubei.
