Does anyone else have an absurdly difficult time remembering whats left and whats right?

Sometimes I have to see which thumb and forefinger makes the L shape to get my bearings back. I often refer to the left as the right and vice versa which confuses the hell out of people I may be talking to, although I only really have my immediate family and 1 friend in my life and they've gotten used to my inability to accurately tell left from right.


I can relate. I have to stop and think. "He went to the r... actually the left, sorry!".

Only had problems with it when I was a kid. I'm also right handed

Another trick you might deploy is related to wearing watches or a ring. I wear my watch on my left hand and I wear my wedding ring on my left hand. So that trick can easily help me determine left from right.

Title text – Old people used to write obnoxious thinkpieces about how people these days always wear watches and are slaves to the clock, but now they've switched to writing thinkpieces about how kids these days don't appreciate the benefits of an old-fashioned watch. My position is: The word 'thinkpiece' sounds like a word made up by someone who didn't know about the word 'brain'.

"Which eye is my bad eye again?" Right.

I don't believe that I have trouble telling which is which, but I can often confuse the two occasionally.

Interesting that there's a bunch of ambidextrous people here. I've always had some difficulty telling left from right, and I can write with both hands too. The only method I use for remembering left/right is a childhood memory of being in a car and my dad saying we're turning right at this road, and the car turning :arrow:

I can't tell which direction sound is coming from. Sometimes I forget what side of the road I'm supposed to be driving on (if there's no other cars around for reference), though my gut feeling has been correct.
