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

You are  

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!

    89% lefthanded. Didn’t ask me, but I bat right handed (taught by my older brothers) and golf either way equally bad. Putt-putt golf for me is a nightmare!

    Great quiz. I’m totally lefthanded left footed etc great for the sports skills and for talking. Well once I got over the stutter. Dylexia a bit also when writing fast can put the word on in a sentence instead of writing the and similar with other small words. Do other lefties also find it easy to find a word that other people are trying to find when talking and I tell them the word they are searching for in their head?
