Lightbulb Hmm.. I might be ambidextrous...

Firstly, I'm right-handed. So about a week ago, I was bored at work and just randomly decided that I was going to start using my left hand for writing. I started awkwardly but within a few days I was writing notes to my colleagues with my left hand and they weren't picking up that my writing is different or that it was bad - it wasn't that bad actually.

It hasn't even been a week and now I can pick up a pen and start writing with my left hand fairly normally. Also, I've switched my mouse over to the left hand side at work and at home. And I actually prefer it there now.

Have I been ambidextrous all along and had not known it? What do you guys think?

That's cool!

I have no idea if you are or if you're not, but whatever...

Let them eat cake.

Re: Hmm.. I might be ambidextrous...

If you ask most lefties, you'll find that they are not total fools when it comes to use their right hands. Obviously because of how "right" the world is, lefties are forced to adapt somewhat.

I am a lefty but I feel comfortable with my right hand. Interesting to hear you going the opposite way though.

Re: Hmm.. I might be ambidextrous...

I've always experimented with writing with my left hand, but I never really pursued doing it consistently, otherwise I'd be where you are now. As it stands now, I can write fine with my left hand, but it's just sloppier.

When I was lazy in school I'd just write notes with my left hand...it came to good use sometimes.

Fran, you're lefty?

I can even play tennis with my left hand, but I'm worse than Lourdes from that part.

Didn't see you asking this. I think you had the framework to possibly be comfortable with both hands. But I'm not sure you were automatically destined to be ambidextrous. It's a very interesting topic with tons of research done on it.
