Default Are you left handed or right handed?

I'm right handed. However when it comes to some things I'm ambidextrous. I tend to throw under handed better with my left hand, and I generally pick things up with my left hand too. I can eat with my left or right hand perfectly fine. I think that had a lot to do with the fact of sitting next to my brother who was left handed, if he was on the right side of me, and our elbows would bump into each other, so I either did that, or he'd move. Ironicly he was also ambidextrous, and played the guitar right handed. Anyways, I also feel funny picking things up with my right hand. I know that may sound silly, but I noticed when I worked at a factory that everyone that I worked with there that was right handed picked things up with their right hand, and everyone that was left handed picked things up with their left hand, and I did the exact opposite since it felt funny to pick things up with my right hand, and I'm right handed. I'm still like that. I also once had a speed test to see which hand of mine moved faster than the other, and my right hand is only a little faster by 2 seconds. That's pretty neat if you ask me. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I play the piano when it comes to speed. I also wonder if it has to do with genetics considering my father's left handed, my mother's right handed, and my father is also ambidextrous. Maybe that's a possibility. Writing with my left hand however, that's nearly impossible. If I write with my left hand, it looks very messy, and it just feels too funny.

I'm very right handed - it's very hard for me to do anything left handed.

I'm right handed...I write right handed, bat right handed...The only thing I do left-handed at all is when I put on a necklace, I have to open the little claspy-thing with my left hand and not my right.

I'm a full left hander, can't do anything right handed. It's kind of a pain, especially when I go into guitar shops because they *never* have any left handed models in stock. Everything has to be specially ordered in and stuff.

I write with my left hand and do everything else with my right.

I'm a righty, but am somewhat ambidextrous...I can write semi-legibly with my left hand, I can do cartwheels both ways and I play bass lefthanded (because of chopping off a bit of my left index finger when I was a kid) and don't have any problems with that.

I do everything except use a computer mouse and crochet left-handed; those I have to do right-handed. I can write right-handed as well, but it looks like a child's scrawl (as opposed to my normal messy handwriting). I prefer to think of myself as "equimanual," or "equal-handed," than "ambidextrous." What would I do with two right hands?

I'm right-handed, pretty solidly. But I can do lots of things with my left hand, like serve a volleyball, vacuum, and even use a computer mouse (my computer was set up by my left-handed father, and for the longest time, I just left it that way.)

I'm mostly left-handed. I cannot use scissors or write with my right hand.

But I do play violin like right-handers do, and guitar as well, because my small hometown music store takes forever to get my special-ordered clarinet reeds in...I can't even imagine ordering a lefty guitar.

Im right handed but last year i broke my right wrist really bad. i was in plaster ( think its plastic now ) for ages. had loads of trouble with it. got used to using my left hand and turned left handed. even wrote left handed. i had physio and they had t learn me to use my right again. Trouble was that the wrist was broken so bad that i was shying away from using it in case it got more damaged. still have trouble with it now 15 months later. i can still write left handed.

I am left handed. But I can do some things with my right hand......I am able to write so it is readable with my right hand. I also can bat left or right.

I'm a lefty, just like dear Macca, and Ringo, and that gorgeous Cary Grant... (and Einstein, and all those many other geniuses...)

Haha... only we left-handed people are in our right minds, you know (and it's true!)...

That's a good one.

Here's another one for ya.

Some of us out there are ambidextrous so we don't just use half a brain. We use all of our brain.
