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).

    Kind of weird survey didnt know how to answer alot of the questions since i do everything with both but my brother is left handed and he was a pitcher so i had to learn to hit left handed and after that i just learned to do everything with my left hand or my right hand

  2. Brandon says:

    40-60% Left but mixed handed. Surprisingly i was born right handed, but over time learned to use my left. But i can do basically everything with both hands.

    Holding the phone question doesn’t work out well. As a lefty we often have to hold the phone with our right in order to write down info. Just as a righty would do the opposite… just saying

    i wasn’t allowed to use my left hand to write or throw a ball when i started school so i just learned how to write and throw right handed. the older i got, i just shifted between right and left as needed, although i still favor my right hand to write. my family also would make fun of me when i would use a spoon or fork in my left hand and say i just wanted to be different!

    I’m so mad. Instruments should be the same price for lefties. Like all you really need to do is make a few changes. Like, bro. I didn’t mean to me left handed. Blame that on my great grandma. She’s the only leftie apart from me
    (Very nice woman she was. Lovely.)

  6. Heather Shuemaker says:

    It was hard to pick whether I use my right or left hand for some of these activities bc I use both/switch back & forth a lot. I know I was actually born left-handed,but was made to switch by my family so I ended up basically ambidextrous.

  7. Cheryl Alexander says:

    When I was only little and in primary school, the mum’s would tie my left hand with rope to the back of the desk, for being obstinate.

  8. shyanne says:

    a lot of the stuff it did not ask me I used my left hand or both for and I brush my hair with both hands and it would be greatly appreciated by me if you added more questions.

  9. Mary McCalley says:

    Due to my age, many things (like batting) were taught me right handed. When I use a tennis racket or golf club I use my left because I learned at an older age and made my own switch. I believe most lefthanders are more “both handed” due the nature of society especially for those born prior to 1950. It’s necessary for me to rely on my right ear since I developed nerve deafness in my left ear.

    Question why my answers to the survey were NOT accepted?
