 On occasion I like to go to the tool room and ask for a left handed screwdriver. I explain that the handle is on the opposite end.
 Everyone is born right handed. It's only the great one's that over come it. 8)

Don't know why, but an inordinate amount of engineers seem to be left-handed.  I myself am right handed except in hockey.
There are the Habs, and the Hab nots.

Semi-ambi/confused, here. Eat left, write left, bat/throw/everything else in life right.

Politics: dead center, honest. I just hope enough people actually believe that on county election day on May 4th.

I can write with a left handed Pencil, I can read with my left eye but I do most everything else right handed.

I'm TOTALLY left handed. If you ask me to do something with my right hand......I'll get a cramp.... 8) And I also belong to the National Society For Equal Rights to Lefthanders. You right handed people just wait until you have to use a LEFTHANDED Door.  :D

I throw righty, but everything else is leftie.
In 1st and 2nd grade, my teachers tried to 'rehabilitate' me.....didn't work then....hasn't worked since.
I don't have the numbers, but I recall reading that Lefties are statistically overrepresented in techincal fields.
I heard Einstien and Bethoven were lefties whild Hitler and Nixon were riighties.

I'm one of the confused ones, also. I write and eat with my left, but just about everything else with my right. I can also write forward and backward at the same time.. I think that means I'm using both sides of my brain at the same time. Or maybe it means that I'm just weird. Not weird, GIFTED.

I am a "righty" but, being a musician also, I can do a lot of things just as well with my left hand.  I remember back in 2nd grade I had a bicycle accident and I wasn't able to use my right hand to write.  I had to finish writing a story about "Charlotte's Web" so I finished it writing "LEFTY".  By the time I was done writing that story, you couldn't tell the difference between my right-handed or left-handed writing.  Now that I'm an "old man" I can still write left-handed legibily although I prefer writing right-handed.  I have also played both trumpet and trombone both "right" and "left".   BTW...who says lefty's make better lovers???????

I'm a "natch" lefty.  Interesting that US stated stats are ~16 -20 % left.  In whole world, it is supposed to be slightly lower.  Plenty of places still actively practice latent 'conversion' of young people (students) from L to R - for same stupid endemic reason educators and others used to do in USA. 

My opinion only, I bet that it is much more likely the 'true' left dominant population WW is probably 33%.  Lotta folks converted at early age.  In my case, I write with a 'crook' hooking my left hand becuase I was never shown how to position my writing tablet back when practicing going from Block to Cursive in like kindergaden or 1st g.  Too hard to break later.  L prob much more ambidextrous than R handers.

From my limited personal stats observation, Lefties seem to be way over-represented in the Sciences.

I have two sons that were deemed lefties by a public school system, and their mother thought it was great because that meant they were smarter than average. Of course, neither shows as much coordination with their left hand as their right.....

Actual lefties do seem to be much more common in Engineering and Scientific types of work.
