    Or Is That Right Footed

    Is it really possible to write a story here? Ok I'm right handed but can write a little with the left. I have excellent dexterity in both but if I'm throwing the ball it's with my right. Now I need someone to catch it...

    Righty Tighty

    I can write perfectly using my right hand.  I have been trying to teach myself to write sufficiently with my left hand in case something ever happens to the right.  I find it difficult to cut my fingernails on my right hand.  My left hand is not as strong, and I...

    I'm right handed, but I was supposed to be left

    handed. I was left handed from birth to about 5 years old until my mom took me to one of her friends to babysit me. For some reason this woman had issues with me being left handed. She forced me to write with my right hand, and now I'm right handed. I can't write with my left...

    Right Handed .....But Lefty!

    I do everything right handed except write. I once tried writing with my right hand. but it was a useless endeavor....I may have done better by holding the pencil in my teeth and trying to write.

    Same Old Song and Dance

    yes, i'm right-handed, just like many other people. i've actually always wanted to be left-handed, though. the thing that's cool about being a lefty is that it's unique, it's not as common. right-handedness is far less interesting. i've actually taught myself to do a lot of...

    Just Another Statistic

    I read somewhere a very long time ago that 1 out of every 7 people are left-handed. Out of the 15 kids my parents had, there are 2 left handers.  Then of the 35 grandkids, there are 5 lefties.  I always found that kinda weird how we close we matched that statistic...

    because not very many people are left handed compared to the amount of right handed people.

    Sometimes...

    it's so common to be right-handed that I hate it, but I have this friend in London, that is left-handed and her hand writing is awful! So I'm kind of glad that I'm right-handed.

    How Do You Write Left Handed

    Yeah I'm right handed. Just weird how people who are left handed write, that's weird. Like you have to cruel your wrist so it won't smudge the paper. But I have respect for left handed people. My 7th grade art teacher once told me that people who are left handed were born...

    I Find It Funny

    It's weid how only few people are as good with their right hand as they are with their left... It's kind of funny how we keep praising who-ever because human beings are so smart and strong and blah blah blah but right handed people can barely pick something up with their left...

    This is what I found on essortment.com: "In most cases, a left-handed person is right-brained and a right-handed person is left-brained. This is not always the case, though. What does it mean to be left-brained? This means that the left side of your brain is dominant...

    Right side of my body is dominant.

    I write with my right hand, throw with my right hand, kick with my right foot, snowboard leading with my right foot (even though that's mostly lefties), my right eye is dominant, I can hear better out of my right ear (I'm partially def in the left), I wear my watch on my right...

    or I have too much spare time, I like to try to do things with my left hand. That always keeps me humble.

    I try to use my left too though.

    I keep my wallet in my left pocket, I try to use my left when eating or brushing my teeth just so I can even myself out a bit and I heard it triggers parts of your brain you don't normally use.

    Not What It Used To Be

    My right hand is not the hand it once was. My grip strength is diminished from years of labor, a few minor burns, borderline frostbite, and general wear. I have no impressive scars to show off, or tattoos of my name along my knuckles or a gang symbol near my thumb. It's just a...

    But Try to Use Both Hands Equally Well

    I can signature with my left & write passingly well. I can't draw with my left, but I CAN color. I'm most proud of my dual weapon training. I can fence two handed or perform Kata with a Daisho. I can also wield most archaic weaponry in two hands & they CAN be different...

    I could be ambidextrous

    if I put more effort into it... but I guess being right handed is just a habit? I type really fast with "both" hands. A lot of the food we eat requires both hands. We assign functions to each hand and stick to it pretty nicely. Ultimately I think it's just a matter of...
