    I have a double hair whirl. I'm right handed but consider my self partially ambidextrous and I can write legibly with my left hand. I also do a lot of things left handed. My grandmother who also had the double whirl was completely ambidextrous and I have a child who also has the double whirl but is completely right handed. We all walked and talked at the normal age. There have been studies of hair whirls and handedness.

    Hogwash! My 12 yr old is right hand, 2 whorls counterclockwise, zero cognitive issues and is very mild mannered, well behaved, honor roll different. He's my 4th son. Twins run in the family and I'm more inclined to believe the whorls are either genetic or attribute to possibility of early twin lost in womb very early on. Zygote split. No shared embryo. That's just my theory but it's as logical as anything else posted here and I'd much rather believe that than something negative, when my son is such an amazing kid who does his chores, studies, is kind hearted and helpful by nature.

    My distant cousin has two whorls, webbed toes and has been an excellent swimmer since before she could walk.

    I find this thread interesting as I have never heard of a link with multiple hair whorls and left-handedness. I know of the link to twins - as often there is one left and one right hander. I have twins now 14. The lefty has a double whorl over her right eye and a normal crown at the back of her head. She is highly intelligent, top sets for everything. When she was young I suspected asperges as she had highly sensitive hearing smell and taste. We went to see a child psychologist but she was too smart for him and I gave up deciding that however she is, we will work with it and hopefully she will grow out of her phobias and particularities. She did, although still particular, she improved with her sensitivities and is now well balanced with a lovely natured, kind and funny. My son also is left-handed (normal whorls) as am I, my brother, father, uncle and grandfather. I have no idea if I have whorls on my head, but I find these links fascinating. I'm going to check her baby photos now to see which way they turn. Maybe not scientific, but good banter non the less!
