I'm right handed, but I do prefer to use my left hand for certain tasks.

22% is a bit too much I think, normal would be 10-15%. But maybe left-handed persons care more about such polls than right-handed do.

A right-handed person does not know how difficult certain things might be for a left-handed person. Have look at this image, for example. For a right-handed person this looks just normal.. And this is just one example out of hundreds.

I'm right-handed, and work in IT, having once been a programmer. That's a bit creative, right?

I also try to write, and am 50,000 words into my novel. Daughter #1 is right-handed and is an actor and singer/songwriter, daughter #2 is left-handed and her only creativity is her love of music (listening to). Daughter #3 is right-handed and is quite the little artist. So I don't think we can typecast lefties and righties too much...
I think I was having a brainstorm when I posted the above. Daughter #1, the very creative one, is a leftie, not a rightie. So I have to bow down to Stitchawl's greater wisdom.

I'm still right-handed though .

Being lefthanded; what has always bugged me is that dratted corkscrew. I always turn the bottle around instead of the corkscrew. That is for righr handed people. No trouble with scissors though.

And I have trouble following directions 'right' and 'left' somehow. That was difficult when I had driving lessons; the driving instructor shouting ' no the other right', when he asked me to turn to the right and I steered to the left....

Same with me, my wife stopped giving commands and is now just waving because I had a failure rate of nearly 100% if the command came on short notice (i.e."turn right NOW").
Without thinking it's not even statistically 50% but ALWAYS

Yes, also 100 % wrong turns for me. That I managed to even get my drivers license is a miracle.

Ditto. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people yelling "Your OTHER right!" while I'm trying to drive.

Gosh... I didn't think there were ANY famous right-handed people... Thinking about it, I guess there must be one or two..

Actually, quite easy to find. Easier than finding left-handed bolt-action rifles! Even the major sporting goods stores usually stock one for each model bow, or if needs be, can special order and get it quickly.

I never knew of Lefthander's stores until I was in my thirties, so had to learn to use right-handed scissors in my left hand. These days, I can't use lefty scissors at all!

I'm just happy that they finally made a left-handed tea mug!

Oh. This looks really nice. And they have them for boys, too.



Unfortunately this is not available in Europe. I've never seen that before..

I was walking through the home center this afternoon, and what do I spy? OLFA is now making Left-handed box cutters and even left handed replacement blades. I had to buy it to try.

For the one or two of you that don't read Japanese, the character I circled means "Left."

That should be easy for English speaking folks to remember. Rotate the character 270 degrees and it becomes "LH".
