    Any body ambidextrous?

    just wondering because ive been trying to train my left hand to write. pretty much this started when i got really bored in class and decided to do something other than listening it did help, i notice i started doing things with my left hand instead of the right, like picking items up. what sparked my idea to do this was michelangelo and da vinci, very interesting how they could draw with their left or right. btw i found out this site, it talks about President Garfield who could write similtaneously, one hand writing greek, the other latin. Then there is this other guy in there who could write simeltaneously also, one hand writing mirror language and the other wrote upside down and backward letters...alright thats just too much haha. welp just wanted to share this with you guys, enjoy

    btw i just switched my mouse to be on my left and changed the buttons on the settings. brain excercise!

    Never really think of being ambidextrous... But yeah, seem a fun thing to do I can already write with my left hand(badly, but with the right it's not a lot better after all ), reverse too... So why not other things

    it would be so cool to draw with both hands at the same time! Didn't someone do that at the workshops? That's what I heard...

    yeah, in class, I ususally practice with my left hand (im right handed) Especially in Spanish class when the teacher's always blah blah blah blah

    I like what you did with the mouse! INSPIRING!! :rock:

    i can legibly write mirrored with my left hand.. handy for writing things on foggy bus windows. sometimes when i'm having trouble getting random shapes, i'll draw with my left hand and them come up with something recognisable. not very useful for straight lines though

    I guess i'm somewhat abidextrous. It definately comes in handy to draw on the wacom with my left hand and use the mouse with my right at the same time.

    Eat it all you right handed lusars. :bootyshak

    I have the good fortune to draw with my left and mouse with my right. It saves on carpel tunnel for sure. I also paint murals left and right handed, but I could never do fine drawing with my right hand.

    That's weird. Because if I write with my left hand, I too write mirror imaged. What is really strange about it is it feels natural. I mean, if I pick up a pen and just start writing, it automatically comes out mirrored. I can write normal if I try, but.....
    Anyway. It's just weird that others do the same thing.
    :hmm:

    A few things I do with my left, like tie shoes like a lefty and drink with my left, always hold my drink in left hand.

    Remember lefthanded people are the only once in their right mind.
