Hand Dominance Thread

Postby iCeCuBEzv2 » Fri Jan 04, 2013 6:11 am

I've always been fascinated with hand dominance. I was just wondering who on the forums is a righty or lefty!

I don't know what I am but here's the run down of my dominance sceheme.

Right
shooting guns
playing pool
cutting with scissors
eating
carrying things
punching
brushing my teeth
shaving
jerkin it (lol)
snapping

Left
writing
throwing
kicking a ball
bowling
playing hackey sack
using a computer track pad
I wear a watch on my right wrist
stirring
lighting a lighter/smoking a cigarette
packing a dip tin

When it comes to stepmania I jack better with my left hand but trill better with my right.

Right handed for everything, with exception to carrying things.

My left hand can only do one thing. The rest I have to use my right.

I think I'm about half and half. I can do pretty much everything with both, but mostly left handed. Used to do math with my right, and draw with my left. Guess thats sorta weird.

Fascinating. Both involve gripping yet you use different hands.

If I play stepmania one-handed it is always with my right hand.

Yeah I know, but when I have to scratch my face I always use my right hand to play the notes one handed.

Ah, that's true. I do the same thing! I thought you meant when you stream on index your right hand is faster somehow. I realize now that sounds kind of stupid. Gomen...

I am and have always been predominantly left-handed for just about everything, even split tasks like typing (I'd say 70% of the typing I do with my left hand).

The only thing I'm better at using my right hand for is stepmania, but that is because I started out favoring the arrow keys and never felt a reason to change that.

What is the exact sequences where they light up cigarette. I think this will be interesting for me. I am playing this games since 2 years.

My right index finger while playing index is at least 5 times better. I can't do anything with my left hand if it isn't following my right hands speed / accuracy.

I always used my right hand for the most part. Writing, every day tasks, etc. However, I tried playing basketball left handed and I seem to do fine left and right handed. I can do misc stuff with my left hand better than my right though. My left hand vibrates faster than my right. (left/down jack arrows are no problem for me. up/right... I am okay at...) I'd have to say... 30%-70% (left-right) or so...
