Yet another question to ask the members here.

What hand/s are you proficient with?

As for me, I do everything with my left hand except for writing and drawing, I can't imagine how "true" left handers draw and write with their left hands. In fact, its a disadvantage I think because their hand would smear as they wrote from left to right. If they were writing in Arabic for example, which goes right to left, then it would be okay.
I think my parents or teachers forced me to adapt to writing with my right hand otherwise I'd be a total lefty.

I'm right handed. But I do a lot of little things like a lefty does.

My husband, his father and my daughter are all lefties. And I had several friends in high school who were left handed. I'm surrounded by southpaws! :laugh:

But watching my daughter learn to write was an interesting experience because of her left handedness. She always wanted to go in the wrong direction.

I do stuff with whatever hand... mostly. But I'm mostly lefthanded. And yes, I do smear the page sometimes, if I'm writing with a leaky pen or a pencil. It gets annoying, but I'm used to it.

To Getting By: When I was learning to write I wrote a lot of stuff backwards too... it takes time lol.

I'm left as far as writing and drawing but everything else I use both hands. I throw with my right. My husband was born left but they forced him to learn to be right. they say that can cause problems for the child and he does carry some of those like emtional issues and trouble reasoning/thinking clearly or making decisions.

The same thing happened to my husband. They tied his left hand down to the chair and made him learn to write with his other hand. I never thought that it could be part of why he has such a hard time making decisions.

Yeah I was thinking that. :) Whenever I ask people it always seems the right handed outnumber the left.

Well, most of us here are pretty different from a lot of people, so I'm not too surprised if most of us are lefties.

Left handed people think with the right side of their brain more. It's that side of the brain that deals with abstract concepts and emotions. It tends to aid in creativity...the flip side of that is probably that it makes it easier to get mired in your own emotions more.

I was thinking how interesting it was that the majority of respondents so far have been left handed as normally lefties are vastly outnumbered by righties! Hmm... wondering if there's a study in here somewhere.
Oh, I'm right tho.... my left hand does nothing but assist the right in mundane tasks (washing dishing, shifting gears...). :biggrin:

Right, although I sometimes unconsciously use my left hand to some tasks, such as drinking or eating.
