  1. I'm left-handed, and I was retrained to write right-handed at a very early age, even before I could actually write letters. I do everything else with my left hand. I can write with my left hand without any problems, the handwriting, as noted above, is like that of a pre-school child. Interestingly, I can write with my left hand in a mirror image. I didn't study it on purpose.

  2. I am somewhat ambidextrous: I was left-handed, but I voluntarily retrained to be right-handed at preschool age. I write with both hands, although the left one is a little slower and not so confident – there is not enough training. Spoons, forks, knives, scissors can be used with any hand without any problems at all.

    I mean, yes, I learned to write with my left hand, like a pre-school kid does. You can tell by the handwriting. There is no substitute for training here.

  3. He was born right-handed, but thanks to playing the piano, he developed fine motor skills in his left hand. Then the teacher at the art school made me learn to draw with my left hand, too, so somehow it just happened that I could write with my left hand and do various daily activities.

  4. I was left-handed from an early age. I did everything with my left hand: I wrote, held scissors, a knife, brushed my teeth, and so on. But at some point, around the age of 16, I just felt uncomfortable using my left hand, as many things are adapted for right-handed people. I didn't have any problems using the other hand, it was unusual at first, because, you can say, for 16 years the hand was asleep, and then it was woken up and forced to work immediately. I didn't get used to it for long, now I freely use both hands. I don't know how much I can say that I taught myself to write with the right hand, but rather just adapted it.

  5. Born left-handed. I also write a little, I studied independently out of interest. However, I can write on the blackboard with both hands, sometimes I don't even notice which hand I'm doing it with.

    In the process of learning to play the piano, I have never experienced any inconvenience.

    But when I work at the computer, I use the manipulator with my right hand, because I initially got used to it. Hence the conclusion: training will help us.

  6. How does a person even understand that he is ambidextrous?

    I have always written with my right hand, but I do many things with my left, and the left hand is developed as usual in a musician-a violinist, a pianist. I tried to write with my left hand and suddenly found out that writing in a mirror image is easier for me with my left hand than in the usual direction. Tests show equally good development of both hemispheres. Probably, many people, without knowing it, are ambidextrous in their infancy, and experience allows you to develop this or not.

  7. I can't say for certain whether I am an ambidexter, a hidden lefty, or a person who initially followed the principle: if one hand is tired, you should load the other with work. Before school, I drew with both hands with equal success and wrote equally well, or rather poorly, with both hands. The problem was only with adults, who required to use only the right hand.
