Random observation

One has realised that one finds it easier to select and highlight things onscreen using a mouse, from left to right, rather than right to left (directions from one's perspective, not screen's).

One supposes that's because of the way we learn our languages. One wonders if those with Arabic mother-tongues feel the opposite? And what about those with Chinese/Japanese mother-tongues?

One is curious.
