Are You Left or Right Handed?

Hello all and thank you for the replies and votes.



Here is what I have found from compiled info here and elsewhere:



While there are definitely exceptions, the "survivor" drive is found to be strongest in those who are either cross eye dominant to their strong hands or left handed. It does not appear that there is a significant difference. I personally believe this shows more full utilization of brain power and the ability to think around problems, quickly.



In addition to these biological factors a strong backround in religion/spirituality seems to influence this drive to come alive in most cases.



It would be very interesting to cross-correlate my humble findings to the national averages. However, this is beginning to delve too deeply into sociology and I will therefore leave off here as this is not the place to discuss such things. I may turn the bigger picture over to my sister who holds a B.S. in sociology, statistics minor, and see if she'd be interested in the study.



I again thank you all. I am leaving the poll open should anyone wish to vote further. I will monitor and record the findings but I doubt I'll have much more to publish here for the reasons outlined above.



Thank you,



Josh <><

Right Handed, Left eye dominant but normally concentrate on shooting with the right eye.............Interesting how many seem to share the same rt hand/left eye experience. I thought that wasn't normal.

Madcap,



It seems to indicate fuller brain utilization.



I would hazard a guess that many, if not most, who answered are into an art of some sort as well as being very logical. IQ is most likely over 110 in most cases as well.



I believe there is a broad psych profile that fits us all in other words.



Why this leads to a stronger will to survive, I cannot say.



Perhaps the creativity to think around corners and the ability (logic) to carry out these plans is the reason.

EC... I recall reading a summary of some kinesiology studies done a number of years ago, at the University of Florida IIRC. The sum & substance was that coordination and reaction times were better in lefties and cross-dominants than in strict righties.



That being said, you have to take into account that the industrial world is built for righties. Lefties are killed and injured all the time because of these right-biased design & ergonomics issues.

I'm right handed, right eyed.



I'm going to have to show this to my wife though. She's right handed, left eye dominant, so she's learning to shoot with her left hand. She'll be glad to know she's not the only one in the world.

I'm Right Handed and Left Eye Dominant. I just recently discovered my eye dominance (I think it has changed over the years) as my groupings were starting to drift off center. My last visit to the eye doctor showed my right eye needed more correction than my left.
