Left or Right?
    #1976713 - 10/03/03 04:58 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I was just wondering what the percentage of left to right handed people is in here. I have some kind of theory, but I don't know what it is yet. I'm left handed myself, but somewhat ambidextrious. How about you?


Handedness
Left
Right

I'm a righty...though I am also fairly ambidextrious. I think it comes from almost 20 years of keyboard usage. Can't type very fast without good control of both hands :wink:

I do the same, it's cause we use our right hand for the mouse.

Well I'm left handed as I write and eat with my left hand, but I've adapted to right handed society so I use a lot of right handed things..mouse..right handed guitar..stick shift..

I am right handed, but my hands are equal when typing or playing the keyboard. I am slightly left brained, though they are almost equal. When I take a step, I usually start out with the right foot, but not always.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

There was a disproportionately high number of lefties at my alternative art high school as well... hmm... seems to suggest the theory that lefties tend to be more focused on right brain has some merit.

I am a lefty myself for the most part although some things I do righty... like play baseball, kick and snowboard. hmm... in sports it looks like i'm a righty...  at least right footed. I write only left handed, i throw left, I masturbate left:smirk:, and i pick things up left unless its heavy or big enough to need both. My right wrist and hand are weaker than my left, I find that at work I have to carry the heavier dishes with my left, my other hand is more likely to drop food all over people.

right for convienience.

I can do anything with any hand though. I just chose right a long time ago because the whole world is engineered for righties.

Right handed here... although both hands are equal in typing skills, as well as driving... and other things that may require 2 hands.

Right. I can use a fork with my left hand.
