Holy Moses, only 6 south paws here?

I am completely left handed but oddly enough I use scissors, operate my mouse, and use an adding machine with my right hand.

I voted right-handed, but that's by necessity. I was a south paw until I was twelve, and broke my left wrist in a fall (rollerskating). The cast was off two days, when I got knocked over in the schoolyard, and rebroke it. At 13, my left wrist got smashed in a field hockey game. All those breaks left me with nerve damage (no feeling in most of the hand), so I write with my right hand. I still find myself trying to open jars or sew with my left hand, and have to switch to my right.

I've been wondering this since Beth mentioned the techie having to rearrange her desk space because she's a lefty. I use my left hand for my mouse even though I'm right handed. That seems odd now that I think about it. Do most right handed people use their left hand for their mouse?

I'm a lefty and use my right hand for the mouse at home. At work I use my left hand.

I'm right handed and I've always moused with my right. The question made me curious, though, especially as I do do some things left handed and swap back and forth for others -- it occurred to me that it might be useful to mouse left-handed, leaving the right free for grabbing implements less amenable to switching, such as pens. So I'm trying it out. It's a bit confusing, but I suspect it won't take too long to get used to it. (It's actually getting a bit of a workout right now, as Rob is upstairs at his computer and we have a POPUP conversation going on -- I've had to go for the mouse about a dozen times in this paragraph that had nothing to do with this message.)

I'm underhanded.

Okay actually, I'm left handed. I don't do everything left handed though. For example, I throw with my right.

Me too, I use an adding machine or the number pad on the keypad at work with my right-hand and it comes to me quite naturally to do it. I think that's because I can run my left hand down the column of figures I'm using and write the totals if I need to without having to move away from the number pad to pick up a pen etc.

That seems confusing. But I always thought that to determine one's right dominance, what you need to do is to find out whether you have a Right or Left Master eye. It is quite difficult to change your Master Eye but easier to learn how to use with your other hand, although it still takes time. So I think your Master Eye is your truly determines whether are you a lefty or righty.

QUIZ:
Q: What is a Right Handed Pen or Pencil? In other words what makes a pen or pencil right handed?
Answer: Most pens have labels or words. But for right handed pens they are printed with the orientation from left to right instead of top down. That means if you hold it on your right hand the words are the correct side. But if you hold it on your left hand the words appear upside down. Go take a look.
TO get the answer just highlight the above portion. The words are in white.

That's pretty interesting. I did a search to find out how you can determine which is your Master Eye. I'm right handed, but my left eye is my Master Eye. Weird!! Guess that explains why I pick up guitars, bats and golf clubs as though I was left handed! Here's a website that tells you how to determine which eye is your master (dominant) eye.

I'm the same way Beth, I use the mouse with my left and like you, the IT people always have to comment that my mouse is on the "wrong side". I know a few lefties that use their right-hand still... I cant do it.
Even drives me nuts at home when the kiddies change the side of the mouse. 7 people in our house - all righties but me. It's like putting the toilet seat down... I tell them they better remember to switch the mopuse around when they're done too

I can barely even hold a fork with my right - oh yeah - it's a riot to see me eat steak and try to hold a knife too

About the only thing I do with my right - is bat - I bat right - or left - I'm a switch hitter. But I dont know if you count that...

Oh and pick my nose - I can do that with my right

I'm a righty. My aunt is a lefty and she deals cards with her right hand, she said it was because her right handed father taught her how to deal them.

I took the "dominant eye" test and found that my right eye was dominant although I am left-handed. So that prompted me to do a bit of research.

Your aunt is not unusual. Apparently it is quite normal for left-handed people to show a preference for using their right hand for some activities. Also, whilst the dominant eye and handedness often go together with right-handed people it is not inextricably linked and is less common for the two to be the same with left-handed people.
