  1. Yes, it's good for improving brain function. Brain fields that control movements that don't work in everyday life are activated. In the future, the blood supply to these fields improves and the period of their sclerotization is delayed, the total amount of energy entering the brain increases, and the probability of synaptogenesis – the actual thinking-increases.�

    It is also interesting to observe how motor skills are formed. At first, the movements occur at the expense of the cortex, you literally think about where to move your hand. Then the skill gradually becomes automatic and actions occur “by themselves”.�

    It is useful to write with a pen, especially a fountain pen, both with the main hand and with the second. To warm up, do everyday activities like using cutlery and brushing your teeth with a non-primary hand. After 2 months of practicing writing with your left hand, your handwriting improved to legible.

  2. I broke my right arm, but I have to work. In a month, I learned to operate with my left hand – to fully use the mouse, write normally, and in general, the habituation in life came quickly. Then, after a full recovery, everything was quickly forgotten. In general, there would be a need, such as I have a fracture and a full cast, then you can get used to it.

    (Before that, I thought that my left hand was not developed at all, because I was a pronounced right-hander)

  3. I've never developed it, I'm too lazy, but I can write more or less legibly with my left hand. Slow, crooked, but normal. Those who see it for the first time don't believe that I didn't train on purpose. I just do the same thing with my right hand. Different handwriting, yes.

  4. Yes, I tried to develop it because initially I didn't have a clear fixation on my right hand — in everyday life I actively use both hands without much preference, and in general, all the classic signs of the predominance of one hand give either the answer “left-handed” or “right-handed”, depending on which sign to take. That's if you don't count writing — I never learned to write with my left hand, her motor skills are rough. And this initial non-selectivity in the choice of hands is connected, I think, with the rich experience of using the keyboard from early childhood. As a result, of course, I developed my left hand, but for example, it is unpleasant to shoot from a pistol and often tremors in my fingers begin, although my palm is still cut on it.

  5. I've been doing this for the last two years. Since childhood, I wanted to play keyboards, but my will was weak and I didn't manage to get them to take me to the music room. Well, in my old age, I decided to give this interest a little bit of a go. It turned out that not everything is so easy, that the left hand somehow does not “work”at all. And it seems that this is despite the fact that in disciplines such as carpentry and locksmithing – or, for example, when using a smartphone – the hands are almost equal.�

    In order to get the brush to work – I bought some notes and started writing, there are 63 lessons, one lesson a day-it took two months. It formed a slow but much more academic handwriting, not at all like the right hand. Additionally, in a day or two, as the time was, I colored the printed pictures. For adults, there is such a hobby for relaxation, so there are a lot of options for coloring here, I actually drew on the iPad with a stylus. This is good for developing faster, more precise movements with the entire brush. Now I write and draw with my left hand from time to time to maintain the skill, otherwise it will disappear as unnecessary. Writing and drawing gave, in addition to the direct result of training the left hand, another rather paradoxical result – my ability to draw clearly with the right hand, which I did not train now, was restored to the same or even better indicators. This is really great. That is, the training worked on the brain and not only the non – dominant hand won, but also the main one-the lines of the drawings became clear, not shaking, the shape is drawn immediately as intended, without mistakes and deviations.

    And I also worked to get my left arm working properly in the shoulder – I decided to learn how to play billiards with my left hand, but I don't play very well with my right. For about 10-12 classes, once a week, I “played” it-I played Russian billiards alone, one game with my right hand, then the whole other game with my left hand, including all the awkward punches, and not just where it is convenient for her to play – and so 3-5 complete pyramid analysis. It was noticeably harder than learning to write, and the shoulder was much less willing to work. I brought the ability to play with my left hand to about half the ability of the right, judging by the time, the balls on the table end in 5-7 minutes with the right hand and in 12-18 minutes with the left. Now I go to play pool more often in order to” work out ” my motor skills more finely. As for the results, apart from surprising the opponents in the game ) In general, the game has improved, I'm not sure that it has reached a new level directly, but it has become much more stable and conscious to play.
    Now it's our turn to return to the piano, let's see if there are any improvements )

  6. I have many years of experience in developing a non-dominant leg 🙂 How do you like this Elon Musk?

    However, if you ask many experienced skateboarders, it turns out that we all have such experience 🙂

    This is called reverse stance skating. Tricks performed in it are considered more complex and have the prefix “switch”. For example, kickflip (in your rack) and switch kickflip (in the reverse rack).

    In general, the success rate is about the same as that of everyone else who is engaged in this sport. In terms of difficulty, it's like learning to ride again. Some of the tricks I do in my stance, I still haven't been able to master in the reverse.

    From the outside, it is sometimes noticeable when tricks are performed from the reverse rack. As a rule, skaters try to spread their legs a little wider and look slightly ridiculous. So they try to compensate for the costs of uneven load during regular skating, because of which, over time, the knees begin to” lead ” towards the hind leg.

    Stop! Do you still not know what is the difference between the back leg and the front?:)

  7. As a child, I thought that my right hand was the main one, and my left hand was so-so. But then my father told me that in our family all the men on my father's side were equally short-handed. All grandfathers and great-grandfathers. Axe, hammer, plane, hacksaw, saber, rifle-all with both hands equally. Only one exception is the scythe, but this is understandable. And it was believed that if a man does not work equally with a tool with both hands, and a weapon, then this is an inferior freak and it should be trained with special cruelty. I then tried it, and it turned out that I had a short-sightedness. Then, in Soviet times, scientific studies of this phenomenon were conducted, the intermediate results of which were published in journals. I then tried some tests from the printed ones, it turned out that I have a high degree of myopia, close to absolute. But the train, as they say, is almost gone. Habit is second nature. However, when I was very fond of SAMBO in my youth, I worked out all the throws and punches equally on both sides on a whim. As if the devil was living, apparently the call of blood. And after forty, he suddenly picked up two Cossack checkers and tried flanking. It turned out, and immediately, almost without training. Then, after studying the genealogy and everything that could be found on the topic of the history of the family, I came to the conclusion that my ancestors came from Vyatichi robbers . And these squads were specially selected for the same-armed ones, or trained for the same-armed ones, just for greater efficiency of the ancient special forces units, so over the centuries in some old Cossack families this predisposition was fixed genetically. Well, you need to add that Tokarev is a pseudonym, not a surname. My surname is Cossack and very old. So your question turned out to be a native one for me. I think that the non-dominant part of the brain and body should be made equal to the dominant part. It will be more complete this way. And the history of our great ancestors proves this in practice. All the best.

  8. I learned to” juggle ” a pen (there is such a neurotic habit). First I learned the right one, and then the left one. But the habit remained only in the right one. )) �on the topic of ambidextrous jokes at the time. I can shave with my other hand. I throw the knife with two hands (only with the left one it flies to x … ram somewhere constantly )))

    PMSM will not have a super strong impact on intellectual development. That's right, “for fan”.

    In my understanding, all evolutionary mechanisms worked only to a limited extent. Walking upright has moved us from apes to hominids. The development of hand motor skills has moved further from primitive hominids to more intelligent ones. And then it is not clear (it is not clear to me) what causes the development of motor skills: an increase in brain volume due to the expansion of the circle and variety of tasks to be solved, or vice versa. Further, in order to progress in the development of the brain, more complex things will probably help: complex music, dancing, and so on. Navrenoe and martial arts would help, but … Mohamed Ali does not confirm this.
