They call me leftie but I'm rightie.. or more of ambidextrous. I only use left hand with writing on paper or use fork, and everything else is right hand, if I use white board, I use my right hand. I'm right handed sign, I throw ball with right hand..I mean everything.

I'm genius...yeah..

LOL, nah. I always like some of the jokes/rumors righties pass around about lefties :-). It's even funnier when lefties repeat it.

- Lefties are smarter
- Lefties are more right brained
- (my favorite) 95% of people in prison are lefties
- Lefties are more in tuned with their bad sides
- Lefties are more artistic

Though ALL of these have been disproven, everyone still seems to believe them for some reason. It's something I've learned to laugh over :-)

I'm left-handed.

I've always wondered why handedness is not more "evenly distributed",us humans having 2 hands. It's been estimated that worldwide,10-15% of the general population is left-handed. Why isn't it closer to 50/50?

I think in the next few years, it will become more evenly distributed. I even think we may see more lefties than righties. We do start at the left side of the page for crying out loud, but as much as I hate to say this, I blame religious overtone for the lack of lefties now. Left handed people have been seen as evil for decades. Back in the old days they wrote from write to left so they naturally started with their right hand. Now, we start from left to right. I think now that people aren't scared they will go to Hell for being left handed, society may dominately switch to their left hands.

My son was always left handed since he started using his hands as a baby. But for some reason, after his first year in public school, he was right handed. School could have cared less. Now, at 16, he uses eating utensils with his left hand, writes with his right hand and when signing, it's with either hand that is empty at the time.

Ambidextrous.

I can do all things with both hand but some things prefer one hand over other.

I sign with left hand but some reason at uni for 3 years I signed right cos terp was right now I been work for year and back to my left hand again.

I mainly use my left hand to write and I can do both equally well, just little faster with left. Useful in long exams, can switch hand over.

Btw: If you can write both hand, is your writing is different? Mine is.

For the most part I'm ambidextrous.

I do (90% of the time) write with my Right hand, and sign right handed, but that's mainly because I was taught that way and when learning to write had teachers who still clung to the "right is better" mind set.

I dunno. I think it worked out differently. I have a photographic memory, so unless I actually SEE it, my brain tosses it out my other ear.

That's pretty much how I am and I've been a leftie all my life. I can recall events most peope don't even remember. My problem though is my short term memory is crap.

Kind of ambidextrous, it depends on the day and what I'm doing.
I'm a lefty in sports but a righty when drawing or painting.
when handling small objects like tiny screws in a computer I'm a lefty, when putting together larger items like a shelf I'm a righty.

When I reach for things it's random which hand pops out.

Im leftie for writing and signing but in sports I use more right than left. I heard that if your a leftie, you think right but if you use right hand you think left!!! So that means I use both parts of brains!!

Left handed, left eyed, left footed.

Yes, I had problems in school.

Yes I got an "F" for everything I wrote left handed.

Yes, my face was slapped, my butt was spanked with a leather belt that had holes in it, and my left hand was given the ruler, for being left handed.

Yes, they did try to tie my hand behind my back.

One teacher told me I was only using my left hand because I wanted to "be different" than everyone else, another told me it was evil to be left handed because the devil and all of his minions were left handed.

This was in public school.

To this day I have issues with authority. I am convinced much of it is because of growing up left handed.

It truly amazes me what people do in ignorance based on assumptions which have either been passed down from generation to generation or don't add up in that person's mind. :-( I never experienced that stuff but I do remember the rumors and the bits of lies which had been passed down through the years that even kids in a modern society seemed to want to reiterate because they didn't want to lose the grains of ignorance passed to them by their parents. :-(

Don't know, but I never had to have notes in high school. While everyone else was writing down the formulas, I could pull up EVERYTHING the teacher had written on the board (all the way to the start of the year).

I can't remember dates, or things like the names of streets, or addresses. But when I went back to San Francisco I was able to walk to the apartment house my mother and I had lived in almost 60 years before.

I use my right because my left feels a little weird, but technically I can use either one. I can write with both too, but I just prefer to use my right.
