Do you write with your left hand or your right hand?
Trying to become ambidextrous. Then I will use my left hand.
Me too! Lol
A lot of stuff is designed by and for right handed people. Scissors just recently started being made for both. Most knives are still made for right handed people (which is why if you use your left you have to angle it weird)
I think it's how they are raised. I'm 27 and my grandpa used to try and change the hand I wrote with, back in his time it wasn't really accepted. And interesting side note- left handed people used to be thought to have been possessed or witches even further back.
Only ones that are in our right mind :-P
I feel sad because not one state is left handed but in the hand(you see what I did there) I feel special
I'd love to be left handed tho right is common and I'm special :D
Where is the ambidextrous option?
i do everything with my right hand (throw, hit, write, and so on)
My grandpa wrote like that and wrapped his right arm over to hide the fact he was a leftie. Also it changes the slant so it looks more like a rightie. You were disciplined for writing left handed way back when.
What if you can write a little bit both handed?
I'm left handed and that never looked at all comfortable to me. Maybe to avoid smearing the words you had just written?
Why do some lefties contort their hand to write? I could never understand
Proud leftie. :]]
I was taught to do sports activities (i.e. throw a ball) and use scissors with my right hand, but I write and eat with my left hand (except, of course, cutting my food with a knife with my right hand only).
I'm a lefty but I learned to use a computer with a right-mounted mouse so I used my right hand. (Wasn't my computer & I didn't know it could be changed.) Haven't been able to switch so I gave up. I use a track pad mostly right handed too.
If the scissors are "ambidextrous" it doesn't matter. But scissors that are specifically right handed can be VERY uncomfortable to use, especially for a long time. I've never seen a left-(or right-)handed spoon.
Here's something I found interesting. I write with my left hand but use a computer mouse with my right. Yet I use a laptop trackpad with my left hand.
I'm left handed and I don't understand why people need things like left handed spoons and scissors.
Technically being ambidextrous means having equal skills with both hands. So, writing with the same level of legibility, throwing with the same strength, etc.
Being able to do different tasks better with different hands is called cross-dominance.
Maybe at that point in the poll, although I'd guess they weren't too different. Dead even right now, all across the political options.
Well I'm ambidextrous so I voted for left because I'm mostly left handed.
@topsqueen she just dint want to have to try to teach you
I'm exactly the same way.
That's what she said.
If it's important I use both hands.
FIAT, I burned my hand pretty badly once and had the opportunity & reason to learn to write with my right. I was in grad school, taking lots of notes in class, plus writing in my lab notebook. Was pretty pathetic.
FIAT - different types of intelligence - they did say average of IQ points is only 1 point different but that's not all there is to intelligence. You can find the article easily, just google "left handed intelligence" - it's the 3rd down for me. Not a rigorous article, pretty general.
Left.. But everything in the world is designed for right handed people, I have adjusted
@susanr so kinda a wash statistically speaking? Or do you think that there were some points that were big enough to make a difference?
(face palm) I meant "writing".
Which one do you use the most for righting?
I think you could get away with it though if you were learning Hebrew. But yeah, writing left to right, use the right hand, and vice versa, that is significantly easier than the opposite.
I'm right handed, but several members of my family are lefties. It's very hard to find items "designed" for lefty use (ie: left handed wooden spoon). Yes, my mama has one!
I was born ambidextrous. I'm versatile
Like if you're a righty. :)
Yet I have three southpaws in my first grade class of 17!
If you were smarter, you would know things instead of guessing so much.
I do things like writing and eating strictly with my left hand. In sports or physical activities my right hand is significantly dominant. I guess this is called mixed handedness - my left is better for precision, and my right for power.
Lefties seem to run in my family. I'm left, my brother and 1 of my 3 sisters. Also have 2 nieces and a few cousins from on my mom side....
I can with both but definitely use my right more. I love that I can use both so if I ever break my right arm or hand people will still be able to read my handwriting
