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 am really satisfied with this test. It helps me really to see how left handed I really is.

  2. Cindy says:

    My left side has substained about 95% of all injuries. I always wonder if it was because i was naturally left but trained to be right.

  3. Laura Gruszewski says:

    When using a telephone, I use my right ear so I can write with my left hand, as I am left-

  4. Mike B says:

    ..there are certain things not asked here, as in snooker cues, guitar, tin openers’..knives etc. Even though my attitude is that I am left handed – I probably use my right hand much more for more explosive actions..chopping , cutting, punching.

  5. Franco van Eeden says:

    Do you know the percentage of people whom are mixed handed?

    I’m not going to provide an email because I don’t want to receive more email. I’m not allowed to view my test results. Thanks for that. Jerks.

    I recommend adding options like: which hand do you use a computer mouse/pad with, which do you use to open a jar, which hand do you use to use a can opener, which hand do you use to type on a phone, laptop, or tablet, which hand do you use a knife and fork with (not just spoon, cuz I use a spoon and knife in left but a fork in right, tho I can also use a fork in my left), which hand do you play snooker or pool with, which hand do you play a guitar with, and maybe even which hand do you use to drag heavy luggage through the airport. People often ask which hand do you write with, which I can do both, but I exclusively use my left for more muscular tasks, which is why I always tell people I can write with both but open jars with my left. Gives a fuller picture of my fine motor skills and muscular symmetry (the latter of which is very left for me). In terms of legs, however, I have zero left leg skill except for skateboarding (I’m fully goofy). But for kicking a soccer ball or rugby ball, I am totally right footed, literally zero skill with my left. Great questions about ear and eye. I am very left eyed, but very right eared. I try everything with both hands to discover which I prefer. Even tho I’m generally lefty, I am terrible at pool with a cue in my left, and I am significantly better at playing bass and guitar with my right. In short, I’m a weird cross dominant mix.

    When will you correct the test?

    Holding your phone with your right hand is a sign of lefthandedness as you then will hold your pen in your left to take notes.

    • Jacqui Graham says:

      You are absolutely right! The test also asks which hand you use to turn the pages of a book, and cut with scissors – but even for lefties these are more easily accomplished with the right hand. (although I do tend to read magazines back-to-front) 😉

    Always felt fuzzy about left and right…..ambidextrous is quite right👍
