I'm so left handed that even after 25 years of marriage my husband still won't follow my directions anywhere because they are usually backward.

Do any of you other lefties write in a notebook from the back to the front?

Had to share the message on the T-shirt I bought my extremely lefthanded daughter:

Everyone is born right handed, only the gifted overcome it!

There may be something to this, as she is majoring in Art, while her righthanded mother can barely draw a stick man. Oh well.....

I remember when I had artistic calligraphy (is that how you spell it?) lessons at school. The only way I could get the thick and thin strokes in the right place was to turn the paper 90 degrees and write from top to bottom. Actually I think it was an advantage because instead of writing I was drawing and ended up making a lot fewer mistakes.

Calligraphy? Isn't that what fonts are for?

I use whatever hand is handy for whatever I am doing. (terrible pun, sorry)

I do have prefered hands for particular tasks writing with the right, eating with the left. I can't use a drafting table set up for a right handed person for some reason....even though it seem counter productive, I find it easiest to use the left handed equipment and reach over the stuff with my right.

and the notebook thing...my poor brother was constantly getting notes sent home from the teacher....because he would get to the middle of the notebook, switch hands and keep right on going.

I do most things righthanded but have a tendancy to do right brained things lefty. I draw lefthanded... usually; I write right-handed. I shoot a camera with my left eye; I shoot a rifle with my right eye. When driving, skating or kayaking my strong side is my left. I throw a ball with my right hand. I chose RH Male in the poll.

I don't draw a correlation with CREATIVE genius and lefties but I've never met a lefty who wasn't, in my judgement, above average in cognitive ability. A few of those, close friends were highly intelligent and academically gifted but about as creative as a cup of mud.

Funny I never saw this thread before. The poll is closed but I cast mine as a confused lefty.

I eat, write, draw and shoot pool left handed. I use my right for throwing. I use most hand tools, including hammers, with either.

The right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body therefore I think it is safe to say only left handed people are in their right minds
