    Righty, although through practice I bet I could get my left hand up to par.

        I'm right handed.  When I did school-based therapy I could do left-handed D'Nealian manuscript writing and I could write upside down across the table manuscript with my right.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.   lol

    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?

    1. wychic profile image88
      wychicposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      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 tongue

    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.

    I can use both hands for individual tasks at the same time.

    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.

    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.
