Default Lefty or Righty?

We're all good at manipulating letters on this site. Can this be attributed to our handedness?

Lefties make up about 30% of the general population. How do the percentages run here?

Cool Kindergarten

I generally write with my right because in kindergarten my teacher, Mrs. Hayden, didn't have left handed scissors. Everything else is random.

I'm not 100% left-handed. I bat right. Miniature golf is mostly right-handed, but I switch when I can get a better shot. I cut my meat with the knife in my right hand, but I use my left when cutting for cooking.

There's an interesting test for handedness that seems to work over 90% of the time: When you put on your pants or shoes, which foot goes first? It's generally the opposite of what hand you use to write.

And now, you're all going to over-think getting dressed.
