    I'm a touch typist and I just realise I use both fingers for 'B', depending on what other letters are around it. Strange.

    I use my right mostly to type the letter B, I do use my left hand sometimes actually rarely

    Right, but I'm weird, I only use 3 fingers.

    Left. It dominates my keyboard to be honest.
    The right only gets the letters from 'y, h and n' to the right.

    That's hardly dominates. That's 'proper' typing on a qwerty.

    Oh it seemed a little overbalanced to me.

    I'd use right hand because of the bottom row of letters, B is only third from the end...and fifth from the left end, so I can't be using my left hand.

    I type B with my left hand when I use both hands - because...um...that's the hand it's meant to be typed with.

    not that it really matters. most of the time I end up typing with just 1 hand anyway because the other hand is usually occupied.

    I type much better and faster when I do have both my hands free to type with though.

    Lots of punctuation for the right hand really. Dvorak balances it a little better I guess, probably too much of a right hand bias.

    I usually use my left hand to type "B", but it does vary. For example, the "B" <<< there I typed with my right because my left was holding down shift and typing a speech mark.

    I also touch type, I use my right most often, if I use my left it slows me down.

    Both. I seem to use both hands to type the letters that are in the middle of the keyboard, depending on what other letters I'm using also.

    I put left on the poll, then realised I had got my hands confused and actually meant right.
