How Left Handed Are You? Find Out in 60 Seconds!

If you write with your left, you’re considered to be left handed.  But just how left handed are you really? Take the 60 second left handed test and find out!

I carry out most tasks left handed, but there’s a handful of activities that would qualify me as being right handed. For example, I use scissors right handed and i’m the same with a computer mouse. I’m definitely not 100% left handed, and I’d wager that you aren’t either! No doubt even you righties have a little southpaw in you too…

Take the Left Handed Test Below

Your Ranking:  

This quiz is based on the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory with a few modern day activities thrown in for good measure. R.C. Oldfield published this measurement scale in 1971 in order to determine left or right hand dominance in everyday tasks.

An interesting fact I spotted when putting this quiz together was that most southpaws will use a knife and fork the conventional way (fork left, knife right), but when using a knife on its own, we switch to holding it on the other side.

And while we’re talking about knives – who else bought one of these and thought it was crap before you realised you had to hold the knife in your right hand for it to function properly? I almost threw mine out!

How did you score in the left handed test? Leave a comment below – I’d love to see your results!

    I got 15% because I play guitar left handed and some other things. I love playing guitar left handed but I’m worried that when someone says I’m holding the guitar wrong and I say that I play it left handed that they will just think that I was taught incorrectly. I tried playing right handed the first time but no matter what I could not strum correctly.

    I got 79% because I was forced to write with my right hand….as a consequence I can write with both hands, but the writing is more legible with my right.

      I got 53%, because everything involving eating I do with my left hand and I’m a lefty in hitting a baseball and dealing cards and opening things, and I’m left eye dominant.
