    Well, what are you?

    No ambiturners, I'm talking dominant hand only. This is because all the lefties like me would chose it.

    Cheers!

    Leftist had the lead for a very small amount of time (my one vote) but I have a feeling their will be a higher ratio of lefties on MR compared to the real world distribution.

    I'm right-handed. But have always desperately wished I were ambidextrous...

    I'm right, but I do lots of things with both. ;)

    Left handed, being right handed is so mainstream!

    I would like to point out that I was a lefty long before Surely became one.

    Friggin' biter.

    Why are there so many left-handed or Atheist Mac-users? It's odd.

    Well there are only 21 votes now (11 left, 10 right). Probably not enough to get an accurate idea. (About 10-15% of people are left-handed).

    Plus left-handed people (like me) are probably more drawn to these types of questions as handedness is more significant to left-handed people as they are the minority. People always teased me (in a friendly way) so a question about handedness draws my attention and I answer it.

    Voted to the right, but am really ambi. 12 all the score. Of course those to the left are in truth, Sinister, and those to the right are Dexter. For what use that insignificant piece of trivia is to anyone.

    Write left handed, catch and throw right handed.

    Which option should I pick?

    I'm lefty but like most lefties, I do stuff with both hands. I use mouse with my right hand but I use trackpad with my left hand. I eat like right-handed people but I write with my left hand. I play ice hockey, floor ball, badminton etc like left-handed people do but I play golf right-handedly.

    I think you're correct- I use mouse in right, eat right-handed, throw left, tennis racket is left etc.

    I use what hand people can write with as the definition in my book. I can't write with my right hand at all!

    I would say left. Writing is a brain-oriented function.

    Maybe they only had left-handed gloves when you were a kid. :)

    I'm right handed.

    Little anecdote - I've got a neolithlic hand axe sat on a shelf as an ornament. Funny this topic should come up now as yesterday I was showing my two kids (one's right handed and the other's a leftie) how well it fits you hand etc. The younger one (the leftie) tried it and said what rubbish - it's a bad fit - how could they have used it etc etc... I tried it in my left hand and she was right. Amazing - even 10,000 years ago (that's a guess) we had 'handed' tools. (You can imagine the poor leftie shouting at the elephant hunt - "Alright you jokers - who's nicked my left handed flint knife... ")

    Bold part added. A study in anthropology would answer your question. ;)

    I'm left handed myself.

    I am right handed but I use my left hand quite a lot when there is nothing to do and I'm bored out of my wits. ;)

    I'm right and I just nudged the right ahead from an even split.

    You need to horizontally filp your avatar. It is misleading :D
