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 didn’t realize how left handed I was until a friend stayed with us for a week and my husband walked into the kitchen with our guest and told him the dishes, silverware glasses wherein the cupboards backwards bc I’m left handed. My mind was totally blown, I had never known that-lol.

    I got seriously left handed (95%). The only thing I do “right” is look through a telescope or microscope. I only use my right eye more because the vision in my left eye isn’t that great. I had a clogged tear duct when I was born, so I think that has something to do with it.

    Looking forward to seeing how left handed I am. My husband always moans when I wind something up left handed .

    The question about turning pages was unfair due to the nature of how books are printed.

    I cut with scissors with my right hand as there are never any left handed scissors anywhere and I’ve had to ‘retrain’ myself accordingly!

    When I was a kid, my uncle tought me how to play golf – he only had right handed clubs and, to this day, I play right-handed (badly). I want some lessons as I might just be a better player if I play left handed…

    Unfortunately, I’m a bit deaf in my left ear, so have to use the right a tad more.

    My dad was a total lefty. I seem to have adapted to some right hand activities, but the main things I do are left handed [eating, writing, tooth brushing and shaving].

    I put the phone on my right ear because I am deaf in my left ear. It’s good that I am left handed because I can write notes down when I’m on the phone.
