Righty...except when I'm eating, I always use my left hand to hold my fork?
I agree with Marisa.
And I'm a righty.
But we got goods too.
Righty, although through practice I bet I could get my left hand up to par.
Yeah, Maine is under-rated! It's beautiful up here!
actually I'm kinda ambidextrous (sp?)
Does that count if I'm the only one that can read it?
I asked this question because my daughter is a lefty and will ask people all the time. She knows things about leftys, like there's a club and everything. Alot of the famous painters are leftys, etc.
I'm right-handed. My partner is left-handed. Apparently the liklihood of having a left-handed child goes up if the mother is over a certain age.
My daughter, who's the oldest, is a righty, but my 2 son are lefty's. Does that mean anything?
I didn't say it was a rule, I said the probability is higher.
My daughter is a lefty and I definitely think they got there
own thing going on.
I noticed the president is left-handed.
She's got horrible handwriting, but she's a smartie.
Well her IQ is like 152 and that's when she was 8.
I am what is known as severely ambidextrous. I write left-handed, but any sport that involves throwing goes to my right hand. Shooting guns and pool, left.
I used to get the strangest looks when I threw in a steel tipped dart league. Would throw right-handed and record my score lefte-handed.
What's worse...I cannot interchange anywhere.
Righty - can't do a thing with my left hand including typing. Tried training it for drums but just can't get the rhythm to flow through to my wrist, then hand hmmmmmmmmm.
FYI - it's a known fact that right handed people on average live 7 years longer than left handed people- can't remember what research company.
I'm a "righty", but who knows, I might have been a lefty. When I grew up and was going to school we were taught to use our right hand for writing, etc. There were a lot fewer "leftys" then, then their are now.
Lefty through and through
Basically battle to use my right hand side for anything - except type of course
Typical misinformation again.
19324 genes from mom and 18425 genes from dad.
It's neat to see so many "mixed-handed" people here. I'm a mix, and I've always felt weird (until I read that handedness comes in degrees in a lot of people).
I write with my left hand but am otherwise mostly right-handed. There are a few things that I do with either hand - hand-sewing, using eating utensils, ironing, using a tennis racquet..). I always thought I could write mirror-image as easily as "regular" because I write with my left hand, but my right-handed children can easily write mirror image as well. It appears there's no real "system" to anything related to handedness.
I'm a righty. But my brother is sort of an ambidextrous.
Had a cousin who used to be a lefty but my aunt trained him to change from a lefty to a righty. Is this healthy?
Healthy or not, it was the rule more than the exception for a very long time because so many people believed the left hand to be evil. My significant other is a righty, yet he is a surgical technician and does all the really fine stuff with his left hand. We suspect he may have been left-handed, but he was raised in the Russian Orthodox Church (in the 50s and 60s) and would have been forced to change.
That's interesting about the mother's age, I wonder if there's anything to that? I'm a lefty, born when my mom was 22, and my son is also a lefty, born when I was 19. However, I did read once that trauma during birth (slight or major) may be a contributing factor. My son and I are the only lefties in the entire family, except his paternal grandmother. My mom was in labor with me for 28 hours before having to get an emergency C-section when my heart stopped. My son was born in 35 minutes, start to finish, but was born in shock. Who knows? I'm definitely, by far, the creative one in the family...and arguably the weird one too
I am a righty...I had a friend back in middle school who was a righty and they had someone come in to teach you to write with both hands so now she can write with both.
righty...except I throw frisbees with my left and other (ahem) activities
lefty! Both my husband & I are left handed, both our kids are right handed!
I'm a righty, but have a lefty son, and we are both artists - what gives?
righty but i deal cards with my left - didn't realize it until a few years ago and someone pointed it out. tried to deal with my right and i'm all thumbs - guess this means i'm not creative? or smart either since i've also heard that lefties are smarter...
Left for writing, right for strength but I can do most things with either hand pretty well.
Ambidextruous...OOOOHHH heck I can't spell it.
Anyway, I am equally bad with both.
After all that... I'm mosly right handed.
I can use both hands for individual tasks at the same time.
eg: I can undo a bolt with one hand while doing one up with the other simultaneously.
I'm rather ambidextrous. I wouldn't want to lean too far to the left for fear of being sinister
Lefty but I do a lot of things right-handed, I was one of those forced to write right handed but I REFUSED! I throw more comfortably with my right but much better with my left. I used to have fun in school writing alternate lines in opposite directions.

Lefty. Woohoo. You know what they say, right handers uses left side of brain, leftys use right side of brain, so us lefty's only ones in our right minds. Lol just joking. My parents are both rightys, they had 5 kids, 3 of us are lefty's highly unusual.
I use both hands for most things, but i write with my right hand. My doctor told me that people who use both hands for most things, can also be dexlexic, for it is the seperation of the creative/logic sides of the brain become confused in delivering electrical impulses, that cause not only the use of both hands, but the dexlexia.

What to know about raising a left handed child?We are being told our youngest is left handed. I have no experience around left handed people. Will I have to teach her writing any different? Will I need to buy different things? Dumb question I know but she already processes everything different than...

Lets See how many people write from Right hand and how many from Left hand

How rare is natural ambidexterity?So I'm a righty, but one day a few years ago, my friends asked me to show me my left hand writing, just out of curiosity. So I scribbled down a sentence and showed it to them, and it was extremely neat, even though I wrote fast. I've never written with my left hand...

Left-handed or right-handed child?If your toddler showed a preference of using their left hand over their right, would you try and persuade them to change to being right-handed? I have no problem with this at all, but one of my friends will not allow her child to use their left hand at all,...

When reading, do you turn the pages with your left hand or right hand?
