How left handed are you?

We all have our own view of whether we are left-handed or not and, ultimately, that is the the test - if you consider yourself to be left-handed then you are! That said, most people are mixed in their handedness and it is rare for people to do everything with just one hand or side of their body. Our test below will show which side you use for various tasks and how consistent you are in the use of your hands. It will also give you give you an overall score out of 100 for your level of left-handedness and you can see how you compare to other people. To get the overall score, we have weighted the various factors so, for example, writing left-handed gets a far higher weighting in the overall score than which way you hold a bat two-handed (see this page for more information on how we did this).

    91% of left handedness 🙂 always considered myself a leftie and boy did I realize I do less right handed tasks than I thought I did!

    What this test doesn’t acknowledge is that we grow up in a right-handers’ world. And for most of history, there weren’t readily-available left-handers’ tools (scissors, can openers, etc). This means that our choice for using these tools – let’s say scissors – was to either learn to use them with the right hand or to keep using them with our left and cut imperfectly.

    So some questions on this test (the ones relying on tools that are hand-dominance-dependent) is like saying “do you prefer pasta or pizza, when the choice is pizza or pizza?” There simply was no pasta for us!!!

    Good test

  6. Doug says:

    I am usually left handed for almost everything except writing

    Took the left-handedness test and came back 60% Left but mixed-handed (40-60%), which does not surprise me considering I am the only left-handed person in my family and I learned to adapt early in life. The funny thing is in sports when I played soccer I was left footed, when I played softball I bat right and threw right, however, I bowled left handed. Scissors are another thing all together I have to use right handed scissors with my left hand, because I have never owned left handed scissors. Life is good being a lefty….
