Truly ambidextrous people, dexterous with both hands/feet seem rare but mixed common.
As mentioned in a past thread, I write and shoot R, throw and kick L, box both.
More or less precision R force L.

I write with my right hand and do many fine motor tasks right handed but most of my gross motor skills are done like a left handed person would do them. Like when i do a cartwheel i face the way 22% of you do. I balance better with my left leg etc.

I write with my right but I'm not that bad with my left ;)

I'm mixed handed as well.
It's different from ambidexterity in that both hands cannot be used equally, rather a different hand is preferred for different tasks.
For example, I can only write with my left hand, yet when I'm throwing something, I have to use my right.

I can't write with my left hand. When I try it looks like a mirror image, right to left and backwards. It used to be handy, in a previous life, for updating status boards which meant writing in reverse on the back of large side-lit plexiglass panels. A skill that is no longer in demand.

Just read up on this last week. I always thought I was ambidextrous but I'm actually mix-handed. There is a strong correlation of being mix-handed and having ADD/ADHD because you use more of your brain, and your brain processes things differently than people who have a strong dominant hand.

I write right handed because my mom forced me to at an early age... Otherwise I'd be a lefty. Like much of my family.

I can do nothing with my left hand. It's just there to support my right hand with whatever it's doing.

This survey seems to suggest that one will ALWAYS write with their own dominant hand. It will cause a statistical glitch that doesn't account for things like a broken right hand or a child of thalidomide without a right hand or with no right fingers.

Mentioned this before. My one friends dad was able to write with two hands at the same time in different directions. Not sure if his brain was disconnected, amazing ability or practiced party trick. Just try to do this. I can't

We are right handed, but twin boys are both left handed. I am not sure what this indicates. However, it is interesting.

I wonder how many use their mouth, feet or other method to write.

Ibanez. Your wrong. The poll asked: are you right handed or left handed? Not which hand you write with.

@pretorian- most parents do not slap a crayon in their child's right hand and say "draw".
Children show a preference at an early age. Many parents are excited to learn that their child is left-handed and, therefore, allow left-handed writing/drawing/activity.

And this is why it is a pain to buy golf clubs. I blame that for my horrible game.

We already had this poll a couple of months ago.

left handler's are the only ones in there right minds. its means we use the right side of our brains more. more artistic, more sensual. right handed s u c k e r s!

I'm ambidextrous so both. But i chose right because there was only one choice.

I was taught to write with the right and that's what I do.
Since youfirst are taught that, how does a leftie find out he is one at all?

Lefty here! 13% so far - way more than I expected, but that's awesome.

Right hand!
Just wondering, what would you put if you were ambidextrous?


07/24/12 11:13 am

Only devil worshippers use their left hand. Burn them at the stake.

I'm glad the dark ages are over.

I used to be a lefty up until I went to first grade because I thought what I was doing was wrong (seeing all those right handed kids)
