I Am Right Handed

    I am right handed for the most part.

    From time to time I will use my left, to brush my teeth, playing sports, writing, and typing on my phone, once in a while. By using both hands it activates another part of your brain. Helps to keep your brain fit. The more you challenge your brain from the norm, you create new...

    When I was little, I tried really hard to write

    with my left hand because I wanted to be unique in that regard (most people I knew were right-handed). It just wasn't meant to be!

    Well I write right handed

    and kick right footed, but I do everything else left handed. How bizarre is that?

    I'm right handed but I kind of want to be able

    to write with my left hand too. I used to practice with my left but it still sucked xD

    Sometimes, when I feel like things are too easy

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

    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...

    In elementary school,

    I started off writing with my right hand up until 2nd grade where I switched from my right hand to my left. One day, a teacher observed me writing and sent me to office to practice my writing skills by making me write a small paragraph. After an hour, it was confirmed that I am...

    Pretty self explanatory xD But i used to

    convince myself that i was a left handed person and that i broke my arm so I had to learn how to use my right hand. The crazy things I used to make myself believe :D

    I want to be left handed though

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

    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...

    I use my right hand for everything,

    so that makes me strongly right-handed. When I'm at the gym I try to also add a bit of extra weight to my left arm to keep things balanced. Being ambidextrous would be useful at times, but somehow us rightys must manage with just one paw. :)

    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...

    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.

    and I am the only right handed one. They say that I'm strange but I think different, I think I also started on the right foot. Hehe

    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.

    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...
