To this day I still have to think about which is my Right and which is my Left.
I believe it's a form of mild dyslexia.
And also, the qp, db and the 2 & 5 on digital clocks used to confused me as a child but I got over it when I was in my late elementary years.

I get distractted sometimes and forget left from right. I have a small scar on my left hand that I've had since I was 9 or 10 that serves as sort of an indicator. People must wonder why I look at my hand sometimes when it comes to right/left. I don't have to do this very often, though.

R button = right
L button = left

Thats how I learned :D .. the only problem is when your not playing anything and need to know left and right :?

I make the L signs with my fingers but I always forget which way L is supposed to point :? :lol: :|
Also I forget whether the palms of the hands are supposed to face you or away... :?

I sometimes have an L and an R written on one of my nails :) L on left, R on right.

I have to hold up my hands or gesture with them quickly to remember which is right and which is left. I do know the difference, but for whatever reason I have to do that. (Which is stupid considering I've played two two-handed instruments for the past eight years...you'd think I'd have learned by now. :))

It was challenging for me at first, but today I can't say I'm better or worse than the average human being at discerning them.

I still have to mentally do the "hand thing" to work out which one is which. As a result, when my driving instructor tells me to go one way or the other, I sometimes go the wrong way :P (as I am concentrating on driving and don't have time to picture the "hand thing").

I have to think about it, and get mixed up easily, which makes it really hard for me to give directions to someone who is driving. I'd rather just draw a map. If I have to give verbal directions, I prefer to use compass directions (which makes more sense anyhow- if you miss a turn and have to turn around and go back, it will still be north, but right and left are completely dependant on which way you're facing). I do have a very easy time reversing things, and when I was a kid, I used to write backwards sometimes- at first by accident, later on purpose. I have no problem reading things reflected in the mirror, although things written with backwards Rs or backwards Ns, like Tetris or Toys R Us or NIN, mess with me because it looks like it should be pronounced as Ya or Ee.

My grandma and my mom had problems with right and left too, and I don't think either of them had Asperger's. My grandma was a lightning calculator, and my mom was really good at doing math in her head too. My suspicion is that the right/left mixup thing isn't an Aspie trait, but that it is genetic and has some correlation with Asperger's.

I don't have a problem with my left and right, but sometimes I forget when a person is infront of me his/her right is my left
