    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.

    I write with my left hand but use my right hand for the majority of other things.

    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.

    As far as writing goes, I'm left handed. But for other things I'm kinda strange :lol:. 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.
