Do you part your hair on the right or the left side?

While reading Vanity Fair today, I noticed that Graydon Carter’s Editor’s Letter claims that only 10% of Americans part their hair on the right side (as I normally do), according to an old study done by sociologists John and Catherine Walter. For some reason, this intrigued me…even though the blurb further claims that right-parters like me exhibit “obsessiveness, defensiveness, fanaticism, weakness and woodenness.” (Well, I never! Why don’t you tell me how you really feel, Graydon? I don’t know if we can be friends anymore. Sniffle.) I then…er, fine…obsessively spent 15 minutes flipping through the magazine, looking at how various models had their hair parted. Here’s a link that discusses the study, which, in regard to “typically” masculine or feminine attributes, is a bit sexist…but so is brain chemistry!
