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 junk 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!

    74% left handed. You know alot of statistics! Maybe the prevalence between left handedness and Asperger’s? Out of 4 siblings 2 of us are left handed and all of us came from right-handed parents, me and my brother are left handed and both have Asperger’s. Maybe there is something there, maybe not, coincidence maybe.

    Could not really take the test because I do many of the questions with either hand. Options should have included either hand.
