Unread postAuthor: VH_man » Fri Sep 26, 2008 5:35 am

I have started this poll because not only do I want to know how many of us are lefties, but I want to prove my friend wrong in saying being lefthanded has no collrelation with "mental setup". aka: Artsy people are always left handed, Mechanically inclined people are are left handed, ect.

If this is in the wrong place... move it, it seemed to fit here.

Right handed, but left eyed.

The likelihood is that you will find a reasonably high percentage of people with some left side dominance on this forum, because it's linked to cross-lateralisation in the brain, which is again linked to things like ADHD and autism, which are likely to be common themes on here.

Not good for shooting, is it?
But I've mostly learnt how to overcome it. Much like you can learn to do things with the other hand, I've learnt how to see with my right eye - but it takes concentration.

Ah, I'm such a strong right hander that would be nigh on impossible for me to do the same.

Ah, I didn't start shooting until about 14 or 15, and I'd never really had any mismatches between eye/hand until then, and my handedness was stronger than my eye-ness, so the eye had to lose out.

No, most people are right handed, right eyed and right footed. Having a left side dominance is uncommon.

Whether or not your dominance mismatch is a problem, it is always at least a disadvantage.
