    With strictly my right: I throw a baseball, hold a hockey and/or golf club (although I don't golf), throw a frisby, write, brush my teeth.

    With either: I bat (although my power side is from the right), kick (footballs, soccer), used to fight with either stance, and believe it or not I can throw a football with either (but not a baseball!), shoot a bow, shoot a handgun, arm wrestle (yeah, I dislocated my right elbow once arm wrestling).

    Figure that shit out!
    Its called “Cross dominance.”

    I write, eat and kick a soccer ball lefty. Skate, snowboard, shoot, swing a club or bat type device, ride a bicycle, play guitar, all right sided.

    I'm also a lefty, but I do several misc things righty. I think that part's not uncommon since so much stuff is right-biased. Even if the specific task isn't right biased, you're already used to having to use the other hand a little more than most. For example, most leftys keep the computer mouse set up for a righty.

    I wonder how many cross-dominant people are actually left handed but were trained out of it when they were young.

    And it's a bitch, I'm not but try coaching archery to a cross dominant student. When it comes to shooting the hands trump the eyes IMHO but it's a tough transition. I shot a 3 gun stage that made you shoot your rifle weak handed cross dominance and it was horrible, needless to say all the local barns were safe.

    I'm left-eye dominant and my coaches tried getting me switched over to shooting lefty. Tried for a solid month, couldn't make it stick.

    I've seen people try never successfully, felt bad for a kid because he wore glasses and using his dominant hand weak eye that was worse vision wise than his dominant eye. Bless his heart he tried so hard and I stuck with him, eventually he got it but was never any great shooter. But he progressed and and the end of the day always had fun and enjoyed the sport so I'm calling it a win.

    Right foot forward for jumps and tricks. There’s more to it than that, but that’s the simplest explanation.

    With road pedals I mount with whatever side I can get clicked into first. I should prolly loosen the tension. Those things are hard to get into haha.

    What about running? I always do heel clickers to the right. Would prolly eat shit if I tried to the left.

    OH I get it, I thought you were crazy but now it makes sense. If I put one foot down on my old zx6r it was always my right, just felt natural then I learned a bit (not much) and put down a single foot depending on the angle/slope/grade of the road what have you.

    Are you talking about the “I’m in love” type leap from old movies where you jump and click your heels together like dick van dyke or something?
    I do that to the right side as well. With flair and feeling.

    Yes, I'm left eye dominant. But I've never heard of this cross dominance thing. Should I be worried?

    I once won one of those Easter egg poster coloring contests that the local mall held. I'm Jewish! I won four free movie passes and a coupon to Papa Gino's.

    That helped. But I decided before that to cut the shit. Rather than put money down on a new 1990 Corvette ZR1, I put that money down on my first house. I was still a bit wild, but started MYSELF down the path. Big Shirl & my stepdaughter came into the picture very much at the end of the wild days and caught the tail end of that. But yeah, I knew I couldn't keep it up and have them in my life. So it helped keep me going.
