dc.description.abstract The importance of human laterality and the possible connection between this phenomenon and human behaviour in general is already for quite a while a matter of discussion. To date little empirical research was conducted regarding the personality traits of left-handers, although numerous psychologists, educationists, neurologists and psychiatrists have by virtue of their observations and the practical handling of clinical cases characterised the left-handers. Many of these theories were not empirically verified and in many of the studies that did concentrate on the personality traits of people who are inclined to left-handedness, the questionnaire was used as method of research. In his thesis with the descriptive title: "Linkshandigheid: 'n eksperimenteel-psigologiese ondersoek" Horne recommends that research regarding left-handedness should be extended and that in further investigations in this field left-handers be divided in homogenous groups according to their lateral preferences (hand, eye and foot) before further comparisons in psychology are made between left and right-handers with regard to their personalities. The present investigation is mainly focused on that of Horne and has as its objective the comparison between a group of left-handers with mixed lateral preferences and a control group of right-handers. Respondents will be compared according to the Rorschach technique. In chapter one a literary overview is given about left-handedness. Research already conducted in this field will also be critically evaluated. Resulting from this the specific objectives of the present investigation will be formulated. Chapter two deals with the method of investigation. The respondents, Rorschach technique, and the statistical methods used in the investigation, are discussed. In chapter three the results of the investigation are reported and discussed. Chapter four is allotted to a summary of the full investigation. en
