I was born left handed, and my year at school was the last time they forced left handers to write with their right hand.
I am therefore ambidextrous, though I write better with my right hand as have had much more practise.
I do however eat, play sports and various other things, with my left hand, and some things are very awkward for me.
I know they are out there, but I have never seen a left handed shop. It is, however fairly easy to get left hand scissors elsewhere, and ambidextrous utensils. The problem comes when not in my own home, and having to use things that don't belong to me.
I'm right-handed but do a couple of things left-handed, such as catch a tennis ball. I have made the observation that left-handed people tend to be intelligent. I wonder if there is any research to back that up, or whether it's just how it appears to me.
I'm left handed but trained myself to be ambidextrous after I found out that my grandfather was, so now can write, eat, cut and just about anything else both ways. I do favour my left side still but if needed (like when I'm holding a kid in my left arm) can write etc with my right.
I'm left handed and so is my husband. It makes everything we do together so much easier from having a left handed kitchen to folding sheets.
Only 12% of the worlds population is left handed. In places of conflict and war that % goes up as left handed people have the element of surprise when attacking people, the sword is in the left not the right hand (ha! take that) the same as south paw boxers.
Makes it difficult when traveling as some cultures use the right hand to eat and the left hand in the toilet!
More left handed people die from DIY accidents because all the electric tools are designed for right handed people. Using a chainsaw is VERY difficult if you are left handed too
I can not use a pair of left handed scissors i bough as I have used right handed scissors for the past 40 years
All our family, (siblings, etc,) & thats 16-20 of us, are right handed, except for our 5 year old granddaughter, who’s left handed. When she started drawing, (not at the same time of cause) I
noticed she was trying to draw with both hands, &
then she settled for the left hand. Strange!
