I am born left handed and made to change at school and there are some things I have a problem with.
Chopsticks is one of them - although I write now with my right hand, I use my left for chopsticks, and think my brain is totally confused.
I DO sometimes use the chopsticks when eating out at Asian - mainly when we are given them, but sometimes, and depending what food it is, I ask for a fork and spoon half way through the meal.
Chopsticks are good for me, however, as I am a very fast eater and eating with chopsticks slows me down considerably.
speaking of using the other hand, I read many moons ago that one should use both hands as it excercises both sides of the brain, meaning the left hand uses the right side of the brain and vice versa. So I taught myself to use the left hand for many tasks like brushing teeth, picking up, stirring etc etc.
Yes I use chopsticks when eating Asian food where appropriate. I learnt it is a no no with Thai food. Indian food is traditionally eaten with only the right hand with and no cutlery which I find very challenging . I usually resort to a fork and spoon.
I also use chopsticks sometimes when cooking and have found them useful for other tasks in the kitchen. Very versatile implements. .
Depends on thd restaurant I'm eating in. Sometimes they are placed on the table and other times we have to ask for them. I recall when we were in America we ate at the Chinese restaurant in Anaheim and all of us asked for chopsticks. It was quite funny as we noticed other diners seemed to be mesmerised with our using them .
