If it is because "since yourself does not experience the same problem, then other people with no disabilities shouldn't" or because other examples seem to be consistent, then it is illogical thinking, otherwise known as Converse accident.
If only because its from a "popular" knowledge, then it is also illogical.
Why do you keep assuming? Stop it please.
And why do you insist on lecturing me? linking to Wikipedia with "converse accident" It's insulting. Don't lecture me unless you actually know I'm wrong or need lecturing. If I said 2 plus 2 was 5 then of course I'd be happy if you explained to me that it's in fact 4.. But when I never said that it's 5 don't tell me it's 4. I know it's 4.
Sorry for this sudden rant. But I absolutely hate when people tell me stuff I don't know, or act as if they are superior. As if they hold something they need to enlighten me with. (Unless they actually do)
And I already answered as to why I can't "fathom" it.
(Answer to you asking if it's such a novelty)
"And well, no. It's not. I just such a minor thing. It's almost like saying that you have trouble scratching your own back or that you can't count to five.
I just can't fathom how one can have trouble telling left from right, I really can't.
Unless of course you have some kind of disability. Then It would make sense if you couldn't scratch your back, count to five or distinguish left from right"
