<<< Right-Handed

Some interesting facts regarding handedness:

  • Mixed-Handedness is the change of hand preference between different tasks. This is common in the population with about a 30% prevalence.[1]
  • Ambidexterity is exceptionally rare, although it can be learned. A truly ambidextrous person is able to do any task equally well with either hand. Those who learn it still tend to favor their originally dominant hand.[2]
  • Globally, roughly 12% of men and 10% of women are left-handed.[3]
  • Right-handedness is most common. Right-handed people are more dexterous with their right hands when performing tasks. A variety of studies suggest that 70–90% of the world population is right-handed.[4][5]
  • Left-handedness is less common than right-handedness. Left-handed people are more dexterous with their left hands when performing tasks. A variety of studies suggest that approximately 10% of the world population is left-handed.[6]

I might add, for some strange reason, I brush my teeth left-handed.

Cross-dominant. I do things like eat and write with my right hand but prefer to hold objects such as my phone in my left. I'm also left-eye dominant, preferring to use my left eye for most things.

Right-handed---though I do some things with my left hand.
