Although we are probably "hard wired" to be more coordinated turning to the left, we pilots probably vary as the thermals do. I believe the thermals are much more variable as an earlier post presented examples of different dust devils turning in each direction. A simple experiment showing bias in mirror image perception involves viewing a large bolt and it's image in a mirror simultaneously. Try to judge the pitch of the thread: you will be surprised.
