Somewhat ambidextrous, but more right than left. Though judging by my handwriting, I may be more nondextrous than anything.

It's the artist label. Or it could be the Che Guevara tee-shirt.

I'm definitely right handed, but can do a few things OK with my left hand if need be.

I'm right-handed. Although I can use either one or both hands to accomplish many tasks, I'm basically a right-handed person.

Completely right handed. A few years ago I broke my right hand and I was absolutely lost. At the time one of my main duties at work was approving invoices, work requests, purchase requests, etc.. I had to sign everything left-handed or with just the fingertips of my right hand. Everyone had a field day making fun of my signature for that 8 weeks.

Like other posters, I'm extremely right handed. I dread doing stuff that require dexterity and co-ordination in my left hand.

Right, but I can do several things pretty well with my left hand...

ok maybe that too, but I can throw a Frisbee and feed myself with utensils equally well with either hand.

Basically right handed, but my left is very useful, where my right isn't... Like spinning on a nut or bolt across the bike.

I'm a lefty and Thanks to your favorite diety I am. Darn near cut off a couple of finger tips on the right about two years ago. Only thing that saved me from really going off the deep end (I kinda did anyway) was I was able to use my left hand. The right was wrapped from elbow to finger tips for over 2 weeks. Gosh, I hated that.

I'm mostly a righty now....but I used to be completely ambidextrous. I can shoot good with either hand, still write legibly with my left and I'm a left-handed shot when I play hockey.

Right handed....... but my right hand is TOTALLY JACKED UP. So I do most stuff with my left hand. I didn't see this option so I did not vote.

Very much left handed. The right hand is only good for those tools that don't work well in the left hand like scissors, computer mouse, touch typing and . . . nope, that's it. Can't think of what else my right hand does.

ambidextrous, but nerve damage from a few months back makes it easier to use my right, somethings i can only do right handed, and somethings i can only do left handed.

but i can work chopsticks with both hands

More right-handed, but I can write, use chopsticks, scissors, etc with my left. I usually brush my teeth with my left, and I keep my watch on my right wrist.
