Nope, the shifter is in the middle. You work it with your left hand.
There's a difference between fine motor skills and gross ones as far as muscle memory goes.
For gross ones do it once and you've got it. The brain is pretty neat; it knows what to do if you let it - - start thinking and the world turns to worms. Shifting is done with gross muscle memory.
For fine ones, it takes a little practice, but it can still be done. Think of a combat aircraft - - an indiscernible hand movement of a fraction of an inch can pop your eyes out. All machines are built for righties, including the shape of the stick grip, radio and armament release switches, etc. Lefties are just as good as anybody else. And for a rightie flying leftie, trust me, when it's time for coffee you can sure as heck fly with the other hand.
Anecdotally, it might be a moot question anyway. Being cheap, I order up manuals, but several times this year in the UK I've been given an automatic at the same price. One trip the gal asked me if an automatic was okay. When I made a crack that it'd cost me a fractional amount extra for gas, she dropped the price even further. It wasn't a lot, maybe the cost of a beer a day, but apparently there are more and more around - - which doesn't make much sense when you think about the resale market. Who knows?
