My daughter is! It's super cool watching her use both hands. I'm comfortable with my right hand being dominant hand

I am one. I can't imagine not being one.

I am adhd and know my IQ. I'm not dumb by any stretch of the imagination, but I might be emotionally swayed. I don't have schizophrenia.

Yes! When my hand gets tired after writing a lot (ie notes in class), I would love to be able to switch and give the other hand a break

I am ambidextrous. It is useful.

I've tried to get myself to use the mouse with my lady so I can type with my right. It's not easy

It is. Don't use the wrist, but use your left elbow more.

I had to when I developed carpal tunnel, before my Mrs introduced me to teasel tincture which remedies it. Being a graphic artist sucked before I got a graphics tablet. Now I draw (but not write) well with both hands, but they have distinct styles.

I'm pretty good with my left but I'm not truly ambidextrous. According to the article it's not bad to develop skill with your non-dominant hand as long as you don't do it to the detriment/exclusion of the dominant hand.

I just want to increase my efficiency. I do cad design and I figure it would be a lot faster to use both hands

I use C4D. Mouse or tablet with left and keypad with right. Unfortunately many hotkeys are left hand biased, so my right is jumping all over the keyboard.

iPhone? When you make a poll, it is the bottom most line below the answers. The link doesn't show up on the web interface though so it's good to still include it in the comments.

even though that means you are more likely to be less intelligent, have adhd, schizophrenia and are easier to sway emotionally? I came across the article and never considered before that there might be a downside to it!

Lol....guess I had better read the article first before answering! This is something I am always harping on my students to do....guess I had better follow my own advice.:)
