Who asked about memory? You end with "for whatever reason".
The respect should not go to Ms. Crimi, but should go to from whatever source(s) she obtain her conclusion or theirs that she was relaying. I am rather she was not relying what some drunk on a street corner in NYC said.
The mind is more amazing than the brain.
Why is child like myself, who had a left handed Dad, so predominantly right handed, footed, eyed. etc. Well before doing tasks could ingrain any "most often preference"?
Props to Fran for looking beyond pool players here in the forum to find reasonable answers concerning how the mind operates. I don't know what she said or suggested about eye dominance, or what her sources were to arrive at that opinion. Regardless, you can't ignore the many books I've read and the seminars I've attended where the people who do the actual research on the mind are the source of my knowledge on the subject. In other words, I don't know where you get your ideas from that help you form your opinions, but I'm in the habit of seeking out people who know more than I do.
About 60 or 70 percent of people are right eye dominate. Everyone else either has no dominate eye or is left eye dominate. It all depends on which eye is more accurate at sending or relaying signals to the visual cortex. Eye dominance depends on whether or not one particular eye communicates better (not faster) with the mind.
About 90% of people are right-handed. I once read a research paper that described how 90% of babies still in the womb were observed sucking their right thumb. The research is ongoing concerning an exact reason for a particular handedness, but whatever it is, it seems to develop before we're born. Maybe it's got something to do with maneuvering our tiny baby hands around in the womb, and the right hand is typically easier to use. No one really knows if it's something this simple or if it's a genetic trait passed down from generations of right handed people.
