^I think it would be pretty easy to slip into her regular description. Like "Kristy is a leftie, and boy does she fit the description of a south-paw. Blah, blah blah..."
I googled characteristics of Left-handers and found this. Kristy is a pretty stereo-typical leftie. I wonder if that was intentional.
Psychological Characteristics of Left-handed People •Leadership. About 66% of American presidents in the last 30 years were left-handed men. Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Gerald Fold were all left-handed presidents. Barack Obama and John McCain are both left-handed. •Quick thinkers. Studies have shown that lefties are “exceptional.” Australian research shows that left-handed people think more quickly when playing computer games or sports. Left-handed people also tend to earn more money. •Sexuality. Research from Canada reveals this interesting quality of left-handed people: they’re more likely to be homosexual.
Personality Traits of Lefties •Independence: Some experts believe left-handed people are more independent because they’ve had to get along in a world that’s not made for them. Dr Peters says that lefties are “slightly more resistant to social pressures, to have more of an independent streak.” •Adaptability: Canadian research shows that left-handed people are more adaptable than right-handed people. That is, a lefty can use her right hand to do tasks much easier than a righty can use his hand. Left-handed people seem to be able to switch over more easily. Generally, Southpaws are thought to be more flexible, highly intelligent, and more resilient than right-handed people.
That's actually pretty funny that there was no 'outspoken lefty' in the BSC. it totally seems like something they would care about and talk about a lot. Kristy: "I thought of that. Prolly cause I'm a lefty!" or they would organize some lefty-day or a lefthanded kid would have trouble using... scissors or whatever and then Kristy could help him/her accepting their left handedness and explaining it to his/her parents and taking the kid out shopping for left handed scissors and whatnot
(if it seems like I'm getting too excited about this, it's probably because I am left handed myself ;D)

Kristy's a lefty?! Whoa... I didn't know that! yes, if you're wondering, I haven't read any of the Portrait books yet. That's pretty surprising. For some reason, I just assumed that all of the BSC members were right-handed.
