Right-handed, but I'm quite good with the left.

Re: Are you Right or Left handed?

Left-handed for writing and drawing
Ambidextrous for using eating utensils
Right-handed for throwing, catching, wand-wielding, musical instruments, power tools...

Re: Are you Right or Left handed?

I'm right-handed and left-brained. No matter which hand I write with, it looks awful... like someone who was trying to write while taking electro-shock treatments.

Re: Are you Right or Left handed?

Leftie. I'm the only one in my family who is.
Righties don't really understand how difficult it is to be left handed. EVERYTHING (not so much recently though) is made for right handed people. When I was a kid, I could never play catch because we could never find a left handed glove, and the one we did find didn't fit me right.

I could never use scissors, and I still can't unless they're left handed ones. That's why I carry a cardboard knife around with me everywhere. The scissors that are supposedly "both handed" is a bunch of ****. They never work with left-handed people.
Computer mice (up until very recently) were all made for right handed people as well.
All notebooks are made for righties because the binding is on the left side. Why don't I just go DaVinci and start writing backwards?

Because of the fact that most things are made for right handed people, most left-handed people are pretty much ambidextrous now.

I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn't like this. Is it a dream or a memory?

I have to agree with this. I'm nominally left-handed, but I've gotten so used to doing so many other things than writing with my right hand that I probably do count as ambidextrous to an extent.

Come to think of it, Writing is probably the only thing I do exclusively with my left hand.

Re: Are you Right or Left handed?

I am right handed but am not to bad at left, but i probably would never use my left anyway.

Re: Are you Right or Left handed?

De facto ambidextrous, but I'd consider myself left-handed as it is the one I mainly use for things that are typically considered tasks to determine if you're left-handed or right-handed. Even if there is some subtle discrimination against lefties, it's not a very big issue where I live. You can get school supplies for left-handed people at every place that sells school supplies in general. Most schools are also extremely tolerant and our desks are suitable for everyone, unlike those you sometimes see on American TV shows.
(just out of curiosity, do you really have those in real life?)

Re: Are you Right or Left handed?

Right handed but it doesn't make a person more or less creative according to some latest research.

Edit: The last time I was on this forum was in 2012, and I realised I registered 8 years ago. Unbelievable!

Re: Are you Right or Left handed?

Left-handed for everything except cutting with scissors (weird, I know). When I was in primary school, my teacher used to always give me left-handed scissors 'cause she knew I was left handed, but I'd just go ahead and put them in my right hand. Then when my parents came into school for a parents' evening, my teacher told them I was really bad at practical stuff like cutting out shapes, but they had seen me cut stuff out at home and it was fine so they were really confused. It took them ages to work out it was me using left-handed scissors in my right hand.
