Left or Right?

Postby choc_pud » Wed 26 Dec 2012 6:21 pm

Are you lefthanded or righthanded? I myself am righthanded, but I know several people who are ambidextrous or lefthanded.

Right-handed for most activities, myself.
There are other kinds of side dominancy as well!
I am also right-brained, right-footed, and have ambidextrous eyes.

I know that generally, about 13% of people are left-handed... But does that change in a country that writes from right to left? Are left-handed people more common there?

Right-handed here, but I can do most things with both hands and I use forks only with the left.

I didn't know eyes could have sidedness.

I should think not.
