Qwerty keyboard’s right-hand letters make us happierLook down at your keyboard. Are most of the letters in your name on the left or the right side of the tray? The answer could affect how people respond to your name. New research suggests people have warmer feelings toward words that use mostly letters on the right side of the QWERTY keyboard. Scientists aren’t sure why this happens, but think it may have to do with the fact that the right hand is responsible for fewer letters than the left.

    Are we only counting people who actually type using home row, or no? Maybe this has to do with more people being right...
