Left handed but I use scissors with my right hand, probably because they are made for right handed people and it was too hard to use with my left hand.

I didn't know the word "cross-dominant" and I think that's the most accurate for me. Now I just have to find the french word for it...

I use my right hand for writing, sketching, painting, and answering my mobile.

I use my left for brushing my teath and opening doors. Eating and either tossing or throwing things. and there are many other things etc

I call myself a lefty and am proud of it, as I always felt that left-handers were smarter.

But technically, I am left-handed when it comes to dexterity (which is linguistically ironic), and right-handed when it comes to strength. Some things, like opening doors, depend on which side the handle is on.

So I write, brush my teeth, shoot pool, catch balls with my left.
I throw balls, arm wrestle, and punch with my right.

For some reason I throw darts with my right, maybe my mind thinks I need the strength for throwing, but I really should throw with my left for the dexterity. I also use the mouse pad with my right because I was taught that way, but there was a time that I switched to my left as an experiment, and caught on within the first day where I could use the mouse just as easily with my left. However, because I tend to follow well-known patterns, I usually use it with my right and only use the left when my right is fatigued.

I'm right-handed, but if I use my left hand to write, I can write like a seven-year-old (not a two-year-old.) I brush my teeth with my left hand, though.

I would like to proclaim that I am ambidextrous, however my right arm will always be superior to my left and ambidexterity is the ability to use both hands and feet equally.

Right-handed and right-footed at football (soccer).

For some reason I always did Long Jump off my left foot. And while I haven't attempted it for some time I think I would still, in as much as one can tell imagining long-jumping while sat at a computer.

I've become quite close to two-footed at football, but I think only through practice and the insistence of my older brothers in childhood. Right foot would always be preferred for free-kicks and penalties.
