I am left handed but I can do a lot of things with my right so i am probably quite ambidextrous. I eat right handed with cutlery but use a bread knife in my left hand. Obviously I was taught to drive right handed but had no choice. Scissors I sometimes have problems and I know you can buy left handed ones.

I am also left handed.

I understand my profession (Chef) has a disproportionately high amount of left handers.

I am right handed. My son is leftie. For some time he was trying to use right because I suppose he saw many other kids using right hand. Left is definitely his prominent hand. He brushes his teeth with left, throws ball, draws etc.

I’m right handed. I’ve attempted to build up my writing skills with my left hand, but not with much success

I am left-handed but use cutlery "the right-handed way". I use my right hand for scissors, for food prep (chopping, peeling...) but not for stirring pots, that's for the left hand.

I'm right handed and right footed. My son is right handed but left footed and my eldest daughter is left handed and left footed but can use her right hand for everything except writing. My youngest daughter is right handed and right footed.

I’m left handed. At school, I learned to play hockey ‘right handed’ but tennis left handed.

I struggled to learn how to knit as it is difficult copying a right handed knitter!

I use cutlery the ”correct“ way having been taught by strict etiquette parents.. i‘m right handed and do everything with my right hand - write, throw a ball etc.. my left hand is pretty useless!

Ambidextrous. I started off as left handed. Was not allowed to be so I ended up as neither one! I use my left hand all the time - I can write with it (messy, but you can read it), I eat left handed, I open bottles left handed, I was painting left handed the other week, etc. I can do pretty much everything with my left hand and my right. Comes in handy when I'm holding a mug of tea in my right hand. I can't imagine not using both my hands to do everything.

I use both, pretty much like ShellyAnn. Which one I use depends on what I'm doing, always 'chop/cut' with knife in right but stir/mix with left. Eat, sew, knit right, write well right very readable left just takes longer. Very useful having the use of two, I don't think about it, just happens 🙂

lilyflower excuse the pun, but it is very handy to be able to use both. I'm going to get some left handed secateurs as I hope that will be more comfy to use than using my right handed pair for pruning.

I was born right handed but then due to an injury to my right arm I was unable to use it for over a year, so then I taught myself to do everything left handed. Now I can do just about everything with both hands.

I'm left handed or cack handed as my dad would say, I have trouble with scissors and hairdryers and power tools the controls are on the opposite side! Plus side is I can read in mirrors and upside down don't even get me started on flat packed furniture I build it backwards! Apparently I would make a good dentist assistant or a brick layers mate!

Right handed but I can do a few things with my left. I tried to teach myself to write with my left hand a few years ago. It looks like a child's writing lol

Right handed but I can do most with my left too and use my left for some things instead of my right.

I can write too albeit slowly and not quite as clear as my right.

Primarily left but if it comes to it I can use my right despite it being difficult and more time consuming. Cutlery etc I use fork in left hand and knife in right. I don't throw balls or do any sport but imagine it's from my right hand
