Poll: Lefty or Righty?
  • 12.5% - Lefty! 278
  • 65% - Righty! 1449
  • 12% - Both. I’m ambidextrous. 268
  • 7.4% - Neither. I’m illiterate, so I don’t write. And if I could read this, I’d be offended. 164
  • 3.1% - Neither. I have no hands. And if I could type, I’d tell you how offended I am. 70

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

99% of you claiming 'ambidextrous' are big fat liars ... or you care greatly to bend statistics in false directions.

I hope no one with no hands comes across this poll.

But the poll is not quite clear on what activity we're lefties or righties. In baseball/softball, I'm a switch hitter, but throw right. I can write with either hand. I bowl as a lefty. I eat with my right. So, I consider myself ambidextrous.

I'm a Righty and was in the minority when I went to school in Scotland as a child. They had a hard time finding right-handed scissors for me.

Of the 8 of us regulars in our gaming group, 4 of us are lefties.
We flock together.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

I'm a righty, but used to drive my gym teachers crazy because I do left handed cartwheels.

I'm right handed (unlike our current president).

4 of the last 7 were left handed. Reagan was Ambidextrous.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Righty all the way. In fact, I'm surprised my left hand hasn't atrophied by now. :s

I can write with both, I swap back and forth for most tings. I write with my left but do most computer stuff with right hand. I can write and click stuff at the same time...

I'm 90% lefty but do a few things righty, including using scissors and kicking balls. I write, golf, bat, and play tennis lefty.

I'm a righty. I just discovered a weird quirk of my mind/muscles wherein I can't squeeze the trigger of some guns right handed, but can pop them off easily with my left.

I type with my nose. It prevents hardware stress fractures.

i write, eat, bowl, play guitar, basketball, pool and golf left-handed. i bat right-handed but throw with my left. i can write with my right hand but don't expect it to be too legible. i use the mouse and type 10-key right-handed and can write with my left hand at pretty much the same time. i can flip you off left-handed but have to think about it before i can do it right-handed! hahahaha. does that mean i'm ambidextrous? because that's what i answered in the poll.
