I'm terrible at copying movements, especially if it involves moving multiple body parts.
Logically when I see the movement and hear the instruction I know where my left and right are, but when it comes to actually moving I get confused and get thrown off. If someone told me to balance on my right leg and raise my left arm, I'm likely to be able to do both easily when separate, but I start mixing up sides/actions when trying to do the two things together. This is especially true if the action has to be repeated multiple times and/or done quickly.

It's really annoying when I try to do exercise videos/WiiFit/etc :(

Right and left are pretty bizarre. When I was younger I couldn't remember which was which but somehow now I remember. Still, I can't say how left is different from right exactly, except that it's on the other side.. which seems like an incredibly minor difference
