  • Is it weird that I'm right handed and shoot right handed but when I sweep the floor I sweep left handed?

      Am I just being remarkably dense (OK, average dense for me) or isn't that direct contradiction?
      No, you are correct.

      the NHL player on my block is a known left handed shooter, I’ll ask him if he’s out during my daily walk but it’s hot AF here so no one should be out

          I mean I can do it both ways but I feel a lot more confident about the left handed ones, even though that's not my dominant hand.

            • Don't play hockey but I would shoot with my right hand lower on the stick. Golf I face right if viewing from behind the tee box.

              I shoot trap right handed but I'm left eye dominant.

              Now, here's the question for everyone. How do you unscrew a stuck lid on a jar?

              Which hand holds the lid, which holds the jar?
              Which hand applies the active torque vs. which hand steadies?

                Dominant hand steadies, other hand turns.

                  I shot left-handed but am mostly right handed in other sports: batting, swinging golf club, throwing anything. The jar question is interesting. On first try, I hold the jar in my right hand, but the torque is applied by both, the jar hand twisting it clockwise toward me and the lid hand trying to turn it counterclockwise away., so both hands are apply torque. I think I do it this way because my right hand is usually my controlling hand.

                  But I'm not an engineer like you, so I don't know what "active torque" means.

                  btw, if I can't get it loose, I shed some pride and give it to the iron-handed one in our household.

                    Maybe I’m weird, it’s opposite for me.

                    I throw right, hold tennis racket in right, but left for golf hockey and baseball with the left handed swing

                      • I am right handed at everything except pool. Additionally, when eating like a steak or anything else that requires a knife and fork, I hold the fork in my right hand and knife in the left (what I am told/understand is the "left-handed" way). But I do not switch over. Using just a spoon or just a fork, I use my right hand. While chopping or cutting on a cutting board, I also use my right. I believe those two things are the only things I do "left-handed" because I learned watching my dad who was also left handed (but did play golf right handed...as do I).

                        • Lefties are 10% of the population.

                          I am power righty, precision lefty, like 1%.

                          Power lefty, precision righty is 0.1%.

                              Re: torque I meant the one that the brain thinks is doing the twisting. Because you're right, it's being applied by both hands, I guess I just have one hand that's trying to twist and the other hand that's just trying to act as a fixed point. :-)

                                Do you use your dominant on the jar or the lid?
