    Not a surprise. My daughter is a lefty, but my mother kept asking me to force her to use her right hand to write and use chopsticks. Maybe Bao and Lin's parents are also one of those old fashion minded.

    There are actually varying degrees of "leftiness" and "rightiness." Some people are very dominant one way or the other, others not so much. Using myself as an example, I do all everyday tasks left-handed (e.g., write, cut, wipe, retrieve); but, play sports right-handed and right-footed. I took a simple test that told me that I'm only mildly left-handed, though not quite ambidextrous. So, if I were a world-class player, you'd see me play right-handed but sign autographs left-handed. (Not that you would, of course. But, I digress.)

    And that just accounts for what happens naturally without cultural influences as others have pointed out.

    This is because in the chinese culture to take up a chopstick with a left hand is not polite..

    This is true. I'm also left-handed but was taught in school in China to write right-handed (although several years ago when I broke my right wrist I learned to learned left-handed a little bit as well).

    Most left handers are more able to use their right hand than right handers are able to use their left, because you are forced to use your right hand for certain things in everyday life such as using a computer mouse, cutting with scissors etc
