    I'm right handed, but I like left handed people.

    Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein were left handed.

    I think a lot of people are right handed.

    Not sure what to say about this.

    Honestly, I can't think about how life would be

    had I been solely left handed. It's hard to imagine something so different, and yet I wish I were ambidextrous. Either way, I'm proud of my right handedness.

    I can't write with my left hand at all.

    With my left hand, the writing looks worse that chicken scratch! XD

    There are moments where I don't remember my

    Right from Left, but my hands are never confused. I can't use my left hand for anything. It might as well be a hook- I might get more use out of it.

    Yeah. As opposed to left handed.

    So.... that's pretty much it on that subject.

    Right handers are more creative.

    They are also very functional.

    And Left handed, i find it odd

    that both my hands are strong towards something different like example. I can write perfectly with my right hand, but when it comes to cutting food i use my left hand. Or when i drink a bottle of water i use my right hand but when i carry something heavy i use my left.

    and can only use my lift at odd times. like looking at my watch...most right handed people wear their watch of the left hand as it free's the right for doing what it does best. So if you see someone with their watch on the right then typically they will be left handed. The...

    I do everything except bat right handed.

    When I play fast pitch softball I have to bat left handed because I can't see the ball fast enough on my right side. It's weird but true.

    I hated showing favoritism

    for my right hand. Through the age of 5-9 (?) when I was left to wait in a car, my favorite pass time would be to use my fingers as legs and race them across the car seat. Being right handed, my right hand would always win. I felt horrible! There my left hand was losing every...

    The right hand is the right hand.

    Right? It's all I've ever known. The left hand is the other hand that is left after I've accounted for and recognized the right hand . Right is right and left is wrong? No the left is left to help the right w/ 2 hand jobs. Everybody who cares knows that 2 hand jobs are...

    I always see artists being left handed.

    Of course, this was saddening at a small age that I might not be a great artist just because I am right handed. Although I knew better, I tried to draw with my left hand sometimes. The pictures would come out sloppy and uneven. I soon realized that it doesn't matter what other...

    My whole body is right handed by

    that I mean my right side is bigger, shoe size etc. then doing zumba moves I have way more coordination on my right side. Maybe I got dropped on my left side when I was a baby. Maybe mom drank too much while I was swimming in her belly.

    When I first started going to school

    I am write handed, but

    for some reason when I have to use a knife to cut my food...I tend to just eat left handed. I am amazed at my ability to be so coordinated at this despite the fact that I am not so good at doing other things left handed! :)

    for some things but its not pretty. still confuses me though, if im right handed, do i wear my watch on my right or left wrist? its kinda a rhetorical question, but your welcome to answer even though this is an experience not a question.
