right but left, left but right

i am right-handed. but i part my hair on the left. i carry my bag on my right shoulder. but i wear my watch on my left wrist. do left-handed people part their hair on the right? are there right-handed people who part their hair on the right? i think right-handed people wear their watch on the left to minimize wear and tear since it's the less dominant hand. but i'm not surprised that left-handed people wear their watch on their left, and carry bags on their left. i notice, though, that there are also right-handed people who carry bags on their left and wear watches on their right. so when it comes to hair, watch and bags, is it left or right with you?

I don't part my hair, I could wake up with hair parting on the middle or slightly left or right, & never thought much about it (made me think more of a Lhasa Apso dog ). I wore my watch on the right (and killed many so far), I am right handed (but also left-handed when cooking, when pouring things etc). I carry my bags on the right hand but switch to the left too...

Haha! I part my hair in the middle! But I do wear my watch on my left wrist. I'm right-handed. My part isn't really in the middle in my profile photo but I was trying to grow my hair then and keep it out of my eyes. Now I part it more in the middle.

@hereandthere I'm not sure about it.. I actually had my own sari sari store when I was studying in high school, when I was Fourth year. And I am proud to say it was successful business, I gave it to my parents when I left for studies but I don't know what happened, they lost even the capital..

Let's see . . . I am a lefty . . . . I part my hair in the middle - but if it's off to the side, I tend to part it on the right. I don't have a watch now, but when I did, I prefered it on my right. And bags, I mostly put it on the left, but I try to switch off to even up the shoulders. I did notice that I am becoming more and more ambidextrous! Yesterday at tea party, I discovered I was using my pen for a puzzle with my left, and at the same time I was using a fork to eat with my right. It was automatic and I didn't realize it til mid-way of eating!!
I carry my bag on my left.. I part my hair on my right or middle ..watch on left and occasionally on the right ..I am right handed so the right hand looks a lot older than the left.. Does your right hand look older than your left hand too?..
@hereandthere Yes, funny how always make sure that our hands look nice and presentable and yet we seldom take good care of our feet .. It's just recently that I am making effort to take good care of mine .. I think it is very important that we get foot massage every now and then .. make sure we apply moisturising cream on them as well .. after all, they are ones that carry us around .. huge job for them ..
i noticed this bag on the left way back in high school. my girl classmates who were good in math carried their school bags on their left shoulder. i only do it when i'm getting tired to give my right shoulder a rest, but it doesn't last long because i feel unbalanced.

I'm right-handed and have always worn my watch on my left wrist. I think it can get in the way a bit if you wear it on your dominant side. Don't carry a bag and haven't got enough hair to part so can't really help there I'm afraid!!!! When i play football my strongest foot is my left. That seems to freak some people out that I'm right-handed but left-footed.
a good point maluse raised is it's easier to fasten the watch that way. i imagine if i strapped it on my right, i'd have to stand still and focus on the task and it would take several seconds. i'm sure you instinctively lift packages and luggages with either your right or left being left-footed probably surprised the goalie
Well I am a bit ambidextrous. In my childhood I used to write with left hand. But my parents pressurised me to start writing with right- may be traditional beliefs. But I bowl on cricket field with left hand. I can operate a scissor with left hand. Most of my activities are with right but for some I can use my left hand quite well enough.
