Well, it depends on the surrounding environment, doesn't it? Obviously
there is per se nothing better or worse about having one hand or the other
dominant. But if you are put in a situation where someone or something is
forcing you to use your "weaker" hand (whether for conducting, writing,
yadda yadda yadda), then it *becomes* a handicap. Not an "absolute"
handicap like having a limb crippled or having a mental disorder, but a
handicap nonetheless.
