I'm right handed, but hold food in my left hand when using the computer mouse.

I love creative answer options. :D

I drive left handed... other than that I only use my right hand for things.

Right handed, but I do a lot of stuff left handed (or at least switch back and forth enough that I'm comfortable with either hand). Like cooking, playing cards, and mini golf..

I also open jars and tie and untie twist ties solely with my left hand. Pisses my mum off whenever she tries to open something I used last, but doing it right handed just isn't comfortable!

Your first question needs an other: I'm more properly known as "cross handed" - I have hand preferences for everything but it's not necessarily the same hand. I write with my left hand but I eat with my right hand, do the computer mouse with my right, throw with my right, stir with my left...etc. I'm not really ambidextrous because it is uncomfortable to do any of those things with my off hand (although I could probably learn more readily than most people).

This. So there's a word for it? Awesome, that's totally me, too!

I prefer to write with my right hand but can use either. (left-handed writing plus gel pens = SMUDGES) They produce handwriting that looks totally different, like someone else wrote it, but they both look pretty. I eat with either hand; however, chopsticks only work for me left handed, and for the life of me i cannot figure out how to use them with my right. I throw right-handed only, and use a computer mouse with either hand. Scissors tend to be made right handed, which bothers me because i instinctively reach for them with my left.

Twist off bottle tops confuse me because they never seem to twist the same way... =)

Same for me. I worked out that I use my left for things that need fine motor coordination, and right for those needing gross motor coordination.

I'm right handed but was a lefty in gymnastics and hockey.

I am right-handed when writing, but apply makeup using both hands (even mascara), catch with both hands, etc.
19th-Jan-2011 03:41 pm (UTC)
I cut and pour with my left hand. I've also painted with it, even though I rarely write with it.

I'm cross dominant. It's not quite ambidextrous, but it sure confuses people.

Most of the people above this comment probably are, too:D

me too. I am mostly right-handed and prefer to write with my right as it is more comfortable and comes more naturally, however I occasionally switch to left if my hand gets tired. I also switch the computer mouse from the right to left so I can lean and get comfortable in different ways.
In college, my right hand was in a full one whole semester and I couldn't use it at all. I had no problem managing, even in art class, with just my left

I'm right-handed, but there are certain things I seem to only be able to do with my left hand (or else they're just much easier with my left hand for some reason): Holding or using the phone, snapping my fingers (can't do it at ALL with my right hand), and doing the Vulcan salute (it's almost intuitive with my left hand, but I have to force it on my right hand).

I'm a righty, but I like to drink with my left hand.
20th-Jan-2011 12:53 am (UTC)
this was really fun, thanks!

TMI I don't know about other people, but I consider fapping to be a two-handed operation. /TMI

I mouse lefthanded (and this is actually *recommended* by ergonomics experts). And I can type left handed.
20th-Jan-2011 11:29 am (UTC)
Mouse feels weird in my left hand.

I use my left hand to hold things, and open doors. That is about the limit of its usefulness. I don't even wipe my arse or fap with my left hand.

It only feels weird because you don't use it often.
