I didn't post in that other thread because it is focused on left-handedness. This smaller, similarly-ancient, thread is the one that addressed handedness in general.We already have a related thread:
Mixed-handedness isn't uncommon. However, it's much more rare than pure left-handedness (circa 1% versus circa 10% of the population at large), but not as rare as true ambidexterity.I write with my left hand, but play guitar right handed. If I use a hammer, saw or potato peeler, it's left handed. I can only use scissors right handed etc, etc. ... A side note. My eldest son writes right handed, but picks a guitar up as a lefty. Both my parents wrote left handed.
It's a bit odd if you're right-handed. Most people find it more "natural" to wear a watch on the non-dominant wrist. There's a practical reason for doing it - that's the arm less likely to be engaged in doing something that makes it difficult (or even dangerous) to read the watch.Also wear my watch on my right wrist - apparently this is odd ?
