August 13th (which was yesterday where I live), is celebrated every year, as International Left-handers day. Its meant to promote the inconveniences faced by left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world.

Well I'm predominantly left-handed, so ya I can vouch for the fact that many common articles are designed for efficient use by right-handed people.

So are you left-handed or right-handed? If you are left-handed, do you have to face any inconveniences?

I'm right handed but I only found out yesterday that about 10% of the population are left handed. I think I only know one person who is left handed.

Ya approximately 10%, might be less than that.

Do you guys know that even in some relatively advanced societies, left-handed people have been & still are forced from childhood to use their right hands for tasks which they would naturally perform with the left, such as eating & writing, coz its considered "inauspicious".

Interesting, I read it somewhere that around 2500 left handed people a year are killed from using products made for right handed people.

As for me, I'm ambidextrous. Although I write with my right hand, there's a lot of things I can do with my left too. :)

Left-handed. I've only faced discrimination once from my double-standarded friend (I also have a friend who's left-handed, but he is strong). However, I use a right-handed mouse, and I'm ambidextrous in holding spoons and forks.

I'm starting to wonder now if that 10% theory is actually true, I mean 12 people have posted so far, 6 lefties (me included) & one who's ambidextrous, which means only 5 right-handers. We're actually in the majority here fellow lefties (so far at least, but I'm sure its gonna change :P).

Maybe the reason because of that is because more left-handers are interested than right-handers in this thread.

I'm a right-hander, and weirdly enough the only one in my family who all seem to be lefties.

I'm just like you, but the exact opposite. My grandfather's left-handed, however, so that might explain it.

I'm right handed.

But my brother is a leftie, hehe! Xp

But I had no idea being a leftie was difficult at times

I guess he would know better than I

Xp

Edit: My fiance is also left handed

And I meet more left handed men these days than women

Is that a dominant trait for a guy?

Either way, with what I have seen so far

Statistically

More than left or right-handed people, it is the ambidextrous people that are rare in this world :)

The rest of the remaining people are 70℅ right and 30℅ left handed.

I'm right handed, like the majority of people.

My dad's lefthanded. Except for writing. That's because writing with your left hand was forbidden back when he was a kid and he had to learn to write with his right hand. He said that at school they even tied his left arm to his chair so that he couldn't use it to write.

I'm right handed and for most activities my left is borderline useless. There are some things I can do quite proficiently with my left though. Nobody in my family is left handed at all, although my sister is slightly ambidextrous.

As a side note, considering that such a small percentage of the population are left dominant, I have met a surprising number of left-handed people. Does anyone know why dominant hands are even a thing? It seems like it wouldn't be of any help at all in evolutionary terms.

Definitelyyyy left handed.

The only struggle I've faced with being a left hander is having to switch every computer game controls from WASD to the arrow keys. Which you would think would be the opposite, considering I'd use my left hand for it. So I have no idea if that has anything to do with being left handed, but, ya.
