I am right handed but people think I'm a lefty, even when I'm writing xD

When I write I curl my hand around so that the pencil is held coming downward.

Normal right handed:


Left handed trying to look like right handed:


Me :


So I get all the disadvantages of being left handed when it comes to writing, like getting graphite all over my hand :D
Also notice the slant. Most people would think I'm left handed from reading it haha. To tell the truth I kind of like it though, it makes me somehow unique

3 ring binders are a pain for right-handed people too when you need to write on the back of the page. I always remove the page I am working on, or else I will have to reach across the rings when I get to the back.

I'm ambidextrous. Well, sort of. I print and power throw with my right, and write cursive and throw for accuracy with my left. Other than that, they're pretty equal. As a little kid I always switched because I couldn't decide and I'm now (almost) ambidextous because of that.

Im a right handed that really cant use his left for any much more than a jab-hit wink5

I understand how you feel with scissors. In class (especially in the younger schools) they had class sets with scissors and pensils and well, you get the idea. And those sets always contained 2-3 left handed scissors, but they werent the most used, though they were there in case if some left handed fellows needed em (mainly they would just use the scissor they found). After some time lots of scissors disappeard/got destryd and we had to use 2 sets to be able to fill one class and such. But guess what scissors that suvived ?

The left handed shy2

And using a left handed scissor with right aint easy, so yeah, i understand the problems hehe.

I figured that might be true; the right brain controls the left hand and vice versa, so ambidextrous people might, in theory, be smarter than left- and right-handed people.

I was born right-handed. I'm trying to become ambidextrous, and my writing has improved immensely with my left hand after just a week's practice.

I've also been training not only to "unlock both parts of the brain", but I also find it faster to be able to write with both hands at times. It's not as neat, but it's a good way to practice and a good alternative to shorthand. wink5

It looks like Bruno got a bit too excited and wrote an essay on being left-handed for us.

Although Sonia made it sounded funny, i still found Bruno's "essay" interesting. Bruno! You must have been amazed when you switched and played beautifully! I wish i could have seen your face when you did that!

Sadly, i suck so bad when it comes to using my right hand and/or leg. I cannot do anything with my right leg in football (soccer) except tricks involving me putting my leg around the ball as though i were to go to the left or right. I can do kick-ups in football too. I just realised....i can't even pass the ball with my right foot eek2

*wissam suddenly feels like playing football 8D

A little bit of fun for everyone. Get a piece of plain paper and two pens.

Write your name with your main hand, then write your name with your weak hand. Naturally your main hand will be clearer.

Now write your name with both hands at the same time, focusing on your main hand not your weak hand. Both should look pretty much the same eek2

What great timing for this topic to be revived! 8D Just last night I had a dream in which I was ambidextrous. For whatever reason I had decided to practice writing with my right hand, and I was surprised at how well I was writing; it was nearly as good as the writing done with my left hand, with a few minor imperfections. Now if only it were like that in real life.

*Sonia wonders if that extra bit of dream practice has improved the writing of her right hand in real life.

There's only one way to find out. grin

i'm not exactly sure what handed i am, i mean i write with my right hand but my handwriting SUCKS, and for the rest i can use both hands for a lot of sports, and as crazy stick figure said, for power i often use my left hand and for accuracy i use my right hand, also, i'm gonna try and see which hand writes better(even though i now find writing with left extremely awkward:S)

Then you're most likely righty, Tycho, and the fact that you use your left for force seems to make that even more plausible yes But I don't know what would happen if you tried to change or expand your handedness;
