    Hi guys, are any of you ambidextrous? Anyone naturally ambidextrous? Anyone gain proficiency in the non-dominant hand? How can I achieve this proficiency in my non-dominant hand? I'm a righty, by the way! [​IMG]

    Masturbate with your left hand. Or use a shake weight. Same motion.

    No I'm not. I tried this DS game to train your other hand, but it was so hard that I could not manage to finish a single exercise...

    I'm super serious. When I needed to teach myself ambidexterity (none of yo' business, beyotch), I learned it by pleasing myself and writing with my left hand.

    When I'm out of hands, I'll use my mouth.

    This thread is now about masturbation, by the way.

    Pft. Posts. Getting erased.

    Blargh.

    Anyway, seriously, just keep writing with it, that's how I learned. You'll suck for months, but you'll learn.

    There was this show in nat'l geographic where they kind of got a woman to do all her chores with her non-dominant hand for a month non-stop and after that she was a whole lot better with it. It's kind of hard i n practice of course, but it's worth a try if you really wan to train the non-dominant hand

    I'm definitely not ambidextrous. I'm a righty all the way. But I know people who are ambidextrous. It seems like all you need is a strong will to do it, and to do 80% of everything with your...not-strong hand for a while. It's quite annoying especially at first doing things with a weaker hand(the reason I quit after trying for 5 minutes [​IMG] ).

    Disclaimer: This is not official advice from an actual ambidextrous person.

    I automatically do certain things left-handed, and others right handed. It depends on the task.

    I'd suggest performing tasks with your non-dominant hand to strengthen it. If you normally hold your silverware in your right hand, do it with your left. Stuff like that. After a while you will feel more comfortable doing things with your non-dominant hand. :]

    I bet all those posts were about [classified information] [​IMG]

    But yeah, just try writing with your left, or using it for things you usually use your right for.

    I'm a righty, I can do some things (that I'd do with my right arm) with my left hand, but it usually comes naturally, nothing I could actually control..while my girlfriend can write with both hands, and basically use em both almost equally.

    Quick question actually- if you gain a lot of (writing) proficiency with your non-dominant hand, will switching hands for sports (I.E. Baseball, Golf, Hockey, etc.) be affected much compared to before? Or would you need to train like crazy still?
