New question of the day? for 10/24/07

Are you right, left or both handed? Does any other body part of you behave sort of 'asymmetric'?



Me: right hander, though limited abilities with left hand (inserting & turning a key goes quite well for example), when I'm standing for a longer time, I tend to shift my weight on the right leg and the left fidgets about, otherwise no noticeable asymmetry

eta: shift on the left leg... just tested that... can't keep apart left and right at times...

I sweep with a curling broom (not the modern brush they call a broom, a curling broom) left-handed. All other activities prefer to use my right side.

i am right handed

Someone made me realize that even chewing is polarized (try it, you' ll find you prefer chewing more on one side more than on the other). i prefer the right hand teeth.

naturally right-handed with ambidextrous tendencies.

incipient carpal-tunnel syndrome in right wrist has led to the development of ambimousetrousness and ambitrackpadness. i also use a tablet.

I chew on the left. use both sides pretty equally timewise, but for different things. right side has better fine motor control. left side has better stability.

i'm solidly left-handed. i chew on the left-side, too.

the only activity i can manage with my right hand is using a computer mouse. in fact it's this single instance of asymmetry that results in a total inability to use a tablet. let me see if i can explain...

when i'm using a mouse i have to use my right hand. which means the activity interface is hand-on-mouse-eyes-on-screen. when i'm writing i have to use my left hand which means the activity interface is hand-on-pen-eyes-on-contact-point-with-surface.

a tablet, however, means holding a pen and looking at the screen. i get an absurdly intense confusion between brain and motion when i try to hold a pen and look at a screen. i end up juggling the pen between hands and then eventually abandoning the effort altogether. this means i do even advanced and intricate photoshopping with mouse or touchpad. tablet collects dust.

oh yes, i just remembered another anomaly. i've never been able to draw or write with my right hand, even in a basic way. but if i'm talking to someone and i gesture to indicate the action of drawing or writing, i tend to mime the activity with my right hand.

the only way i've been able to explain it is that i'm surrounded by righties 99% of the time (although the spouse is also left-handed). so when i see someone write, and therefore create the association of activity with concept, i see it with a right hand. so when i use a gesture in a "universal language" sort of way to signify that activity, i default to my right hand.

otherwise everything is on the left.

I'm Right-handed.
But I grew up in a left-handed home.
I still have a problem using "normal" scissors

Yes, true, tried it on an apple: left side.

That is fascinating. I love brains.

I am a rightie in everything but politics.
