    im amidextoris too!! i can wright with my right and left,though i honestley feel though my left is alot more comfortable to write with . i was born left but my autie forced me to write with my right – but one day me and my friends were trying to write with our left hands and it was the most comfortable my writing has EVER been though it was messier. ikept it up because it felt so much better. in about 2 or 3 weeks it was neater. i think of my self as more left because i do have more ability writing with my left even if it is naturally messy its neater than my right by quite a bit ,overall and a million times more comfortable then my right it just feels more natural with my left. any ways i do mostly every thing else with my left hand too ,subconsiously .more comfortable and natural . but sometime i doubt my self ,i dont know ! at first it wasent comfortable with my left but then it clicked in and it really was very comfortable for me with my left!alot more comfrotable than my right, i think. what do you guys think am i really left or right???oh yeah and sorry for my extremy long coment :/

    I’m dominantly a righty, but I can legibly write with my left hand. It feels awkward to do so, and my handwriting style with my right hand looks much better, but you can read it well enough. I don’t think I’m ambidextrous, or maybe not entirely…?
