I'm more righty, like I can only write with my right hand. But I do have some lefty things too... when I use a knife and fork, I use the knife in my left hand. And in soccer I use both legs (even though that's something I taught myself over the years).

I'm mostly right handed, but I can some stuff with my left hand too (such as dribbling a basketball, using a knife and fork, etc...) But at softball I'd be hopeless playing as a lefty.

I've really always wanted to be a lefty though, apparently when I was younger I was left handed, but I was forced to become right handed.

I can write with both, but my left hand looks like a 10 year old wrote it, so I write with my right hand. XD
But I train my left hand often~

Left hand dominance. Though I do use my knife in my right hand when at the table and golf right handed.

Default Re: Lefty Righty or both?

I'm almost completely ambidextrous. The only thing I'm uncomfortable doing with my left hand is cutting or chopping when I'm cooking. And the only thing I can't do with my right is put my contacts in. Certain things are more comfortable with certain hands, which works for me.

I write and hold eating utensils with my right hand, but I prefer using my left hand/arm for most other things.

I can eat with either hand holding the fork, knife, or spoon, but for finger dexterity (pencils, chopsticks, etc) I'm right-handed only.

I'm a lefty. There's a poll somewhere in one of the threads in the archive on this topic and I think we found that of the EC members that voted in the poll, there were about 2-1/2 times the number of lefties or ambis as you'd expect to find in a random distribution of population. I've anecdotally found that myself as well... I have a lot more gay left-handed friends than straight left-handed ones.

Righty. The only thing I really do with my left hand is hold books, and I think that's from a lifelong habit of holding books in my left hand while doing everything else with my right hand.

Right-handed, but both of my parents are left-handed. Strange.

Default Re: Lefty Righty or both?

As far as writing goes, I'm left handed. But for other things I'm kinda strange . For example, I can only use a knife or scissors with my right hand and I use spoon/fork with my left hand. In sports I mostly kick with my left leg, but throw with my right hand, in hockey I use a left handed stick, but for badminton or tennis or other sports like that I'd use my right hand and I can't really do any of these things with the other hand.

I'm ambidextrous but use my right a lot more frequently. Using my left hand requires me to move my paper angle, slant my head differently, etc.

Right-favored but I can use both. Depends for what I do. Like, I'm more comfortable throwing with my left, and playing French horn requires the left, but I write right and play tennis right.
