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).

    I scored 65% left handed.

    I was primarily right handed as a child, but I instinctively felt something was wrong somehow. Gradually I switched to my left hand, including writing.

  2. Zay says:

    I got an 80%left 20% right

  3. Frances Meyers says:

    Altho 90% left handed, there are several tasks that I use the right hand because I didn’t know how to learn with the left hand: knit, crochet, iron clothes

  4. Rose says:

    I have always considered myself a lefty. I mean I eat with my left hand, I play sports with my left hand, I use scissors with my left hand, the list goes on and on. I decided to take this test just for fun knowing that I was going to be told that I was 100% left handed. But much to my surprise when I finished the test it said that I was only 85% percent left-handed. It said this because I said that I would look through a telescope with my right eye. But that has nothing to do with my hand the only reason I would look with my right eye is because my left eye has problems when focusing on things. While I realize that it sounds like I’m hating on the quiz I actually found it very interesting especially seeing how others measured up.

    I always knew i was ambidextrous so I just wanted to see for sure and for sure i was ambidextrous people say that being ambidextrous means you have adhd but no because i can focus on something for a long time and im an introvert and i don’t get wild over anything

  6. Eve says:

    I scored 100%, which I really didn’t need to take a quiz to determine. I do everything with my left hand and have a great deal of difficulty performing any tasks with “that other hand”.
    I didn’t realize that being extremely dominantly left-handed was so rare… Turns out that only 3% of the population can make the claim.

  7. Chloe Crews says:

    This is very accurate to what I actually do!!! The test works very well.

  8. abighaiyele says:

    i got 100% left-handed.

  9. Kate says:

    78% Lefty

  10. samuel says:

    i always wondered why my right hand was actually a bit more powerful and more flexible to do tasks despite me being left handed by birth. my score was 59 putting me in the mixed handed which is actually true. not many tests actually give the right results unlike this one
