I Am Ambidextrous

the joys of both hands 5,543 People

    I broke my right arm a several years ago.

    I was only right handed then, but I had to write with my left because it hurt too much to write with my right. I can write with both equally now

    I love being ambidextrous

    because I draw, write, and pretty much everything else with both hands. You should see the looks on people's faces. The faces people make are quite funny.

    I was born this way. My earliest memory

    concerning my ambidextrousness happened in kindergarten. I was learning to write and we would do these practice sentences from the chalkboard. There were four lines on the grammar paper and I would execute each letter slowly and perfectly. I loved it. It felt like art. But when...

    Since I was a kid I was always paranoid about

    breaking one hand, so I trained myself to use both, funny thing is I have never broken a single bone. I still can't write with my left. Anything long arm for example playing billiards I use left hand shots for accuracy and right hand shots for power shots. My left is my accuracy...

    Feet

    I am ambidextrous, but mostly in my feet. I am right handed, and there are things that I prefer to do with my left hand. But when it comes to my feet, I am fairly balanced in my ability to do things with both feet. In playing soccer, most girls on my team are right footed, and...

    I am ambidextrous and I can proudly say

    that I love it! It wasn't until the 6th grade that I tried writing with my write hand. I had always written with my left and played sports with both hands. For example, in volleyball I can serve with both hands and in basketball I can dribble the ball with both hand, so...

    I always switch my hands

    while I am writing. I remember once my teacher told me that she could have sworn I was writing with my left hand a few minutes ago. Lol I had to explain to her that I am ambidextrous and I switch off my hands whenever one gets tired. (I mostly use my right hand tho but my left...

    I'm ambidextrous, but

    which ever hand I learn to do something with first is the hand that feels more natural. So I write right handed, but shoot a basketball left handed.

    The Devils Hand?

    When I was a little girl in Catholic school, I remember my knuckles getting smacked with a ruler whenever I used my left hand to write. Naturally I had to learn to use my right hand lest I look like I'd lost a prizefight. After a near-fatal vehicular accident, I sustained some...

    Well, I was! Unhappily I grew up in a time

    when writing with your left hand was considered unacceptable. I was smacked every time I used my left. Now I write with my right hand but can still sign with my left. In many ways I am left orientated...I have to lay crockery so the fork is on the right-just cant use it in my...

    I always thought I was just right-handed,

    since I couldn't write with my left hand. Then I realized that ambidexterity isn't just which hand you can write with, it's that you use both hands...now I know why I sweep and mop with my left, as well as play baseball, hockey, golf, etc.

    Simultaneous Drawing And Writing Using Two Hands

    I simultaneously draw using my two hands. One hand will be using a pencil, while the other one will be using a pen or vice versa. I can pencil in one hand, while the other hand can ink, and this is performed at the same time. I can also use pencils in both hands or ink...

    Ambidextrous And Stammering?

    I grew up being the only leftie in a family of six, so I learnt to do many things right-handed too. Often my dad would laugh when he found the lock on the front gate totally opposite to how any one else would lock it. Washing cars etc, was easier since when one hand got tired, I...

    I used to be left handed

    when i was younger, then i broke my wrist and had no choice but to use my right hand and now my right hand is more dominant than my left, and it's harder to write with my left but i still can.

    Completely Ambidextrous

    I write mostly with my left hand.

    I used to be able to write good with my right hand, but lately I haven't been using my right hand to write, so it doesn't look as good as with my left. I cut with knife and scissors with my right hand. I throw right handed. I eat left handed. I kick with right foot. Bat...

    connection with my left hand, I always felt I was really left handed, and maybe my parents forced the right hand on me. idk but I write, brush my teeth and eat pretty well with both hands. :D

    I will admit, I do prefer my right hand.

    But I find myself naturally switching to the left all the time. It is really helpful when I get hand cramps and whatnot.

    Dual wielding +4 dexterity -2 charisma.

    I bumped elbows with my right handed classmates so I switched to avoid embarrassment. I was bullied for it, and that kinda confused me (what is so wrong about being able to write with both hands?). Still, I wouldn't change myself for the world, it's so useful.

    It was expected to occur somewhere down the

    line, as my Dad's Dad and my Mum's Mum are both ambidextrous. I enjoy confusing customers by switching writing/carving from my right hand to my left.

    I've always been able to do most things with

    both hands. Use a knife at dinner, throw a ball, etc. It comes in handy when you pull a muscle in your other arm :)

    I write mainly with my left hand,

    but I can do just about anything with both hands like painting and coloring. I can catch and throw with both hands as well. I only use scissors and brush my teeth with my right hand. I also brush my hair with both hands.

    We often wonder why we use

    both hands to do certain things, well, for example, I write with my right hand while I eat when I use the right hand to the left hand fork and knife! When a soccer ball using the right so they are ambidextrous!
