Hiya

Ambidextrous

Left hand for writing, either hand on a keyboard, right hand for everything else except slicing a loaf or meat joint which causes problems because the serration is always the other side.

Tennis elbow in the left means I now do as much as I can with the right but it is difficult to remember as I'm obviously left dominant.

My theory is that left-handers are more likely to be ambidextrous because most tools etc are made for right handers so us lefties have to adapt in order to use them. This develops motor skills in the right hand as well as the left.

I agree! My left hand is my stronger hand when it comes to writing, although my right hand is still fairly good. Other than writing, I do most things with my right hand!

I'm a righty but eat left-handed, shuffle cards left-handed and deal left-handed. I would say that I have decent skills with my left hand....

Born left handed and well adjusted until grade school when they attempted to change me to the right way.

I guess it only was a partial success as I am ambidexterous.
