Are you a right handed or left handed person when writing or when performing a task or are you mix-handed? i.e. one who can use both hands ineterchangeably when doing or performing a task. The hand that you always used is called the "dominat hand" while the other less preferred hand is called the "nondominant hand". It has been said that 88% to 92% of the population of the world are right-handed. What's the reason or explanation why people are right handed or left handed? Does it something to do with one's brain, genes, development, preference or training? Can you write with both your right and left hand?

yes, most people are right-handed, so do i. My son sometimes likes to use left hands, at that moment, his grandma will talk with him that he should use the right -handed, most family in china do these.But i do not care about that, it seems left hand also means good!

Most of the time I am a right-handed person. However, I use mouse with my left hand so that I can use my right hand to write at the same time. And it will not waste the time Since left-handed persons are less than the right-handed, so we usually think that they are much more special and even smarter

I am definitely right-handed. My left hand is not so strong compared to my right hand. I think that two of the many factors are development and training just like amongst you have mentioned. I find it hard to do things with my left hand but I do believe that with practice I can also utilize my left hand as much I can with right hand.
