    Left handed
    British Pakistani, Male
    Both parents are right-handed
    Siblings are also right-handed excluding my youngest sister (then again, she's only 3 ) who might be a leftie

    I think left-handedness runs in my family though, my aunt and a few cousins are left-handed

    You really ought to define what you mean by handedness. If someone writes with the left hand but plays badminton by holding the racquet in their right hand what is their handedness? What about a cricketer who bats right-handed but bowls left-handed? What about someone who can write equally well with either hand?

    I've heard about that, did her parents force her to write with her right hand because they thought she was cursed? :rofl:

    Yeah that is fair enough. I just wanted to know which dexterity you associated yourself with. Most people belong to one or the other. And yes i appreciate that there are ambidextrous people too and that can be inputted as and when it applies. Hope this clears it up.
