    ^He didn't actively teach us. Rather, we just bought our own cubes and tried to figure our own ways to solve the cube. But we traded info and learned to solve the cube in our (students of the camp) own ways. But cubing is traditionally a dominant-hand kind of thing. You'll know if you play with a cube for more than a minute. You will find that you use one hand for moving the parts of the cube and the other one for mainly support/balance of the cube so it doesn't fall out of your hands.

    I type properly. But, I've been typing with predominantly my right hand(I used to chicken peck, and I used to type with 1 hand for a while because I am lazy) for so many more years than I have been cubing that my right hand has a better muscle memory and comfort around the keyboard than my left hand. Cubing is more of a conscious process, so its easier to shift it to the left hand (by a tad).

    That's interesting. Haven't really heard of it though links have been made with handedness and speech. So sensation (vision) would be something new--maybe you'd even go further with perception and motor coordination.

    Your interest reminds me biopsychology, with the dexterity thing and brain lateralization, and a bit of cognitive psych, with the thinking part. Anyways, good luck with that : )

    There's one interesting little test to know your handedness.
    If any of you is interested, here it goes;

    Point with your finger some small thing from far away. Now close your eyes, one at a time, and tell me which eye is lined up with the "thing" you were staring at.

    EDIT; DON'T THINK ABOUT IT. Just do it by reflexes. If you think about it, the result won't be useful.

    ^I had to do that for a study I participated in 2 weeks ago I found out that I was right-eyed, despite it being worse.

    Cool. So far, everyone I've put through the test had it right-sided too. As for me, it gets complicated. I get puzzled to which finger reflection I should take into consideration. Of course, if I pay attention to the left one it's sided with the right eye. If I pay attention to the right one it's sided with the left eye. I don't really have an instinct to pick one of them just like that.
    Pretty much every test I've pulled, either to handedness or brain-sided-ness gives nearly equal results for both sides. I'm weird. o_O

    ^The finger switch inverted reaction is pretty weird. Are you ambidextrous then, because your results came out equal? If you are, you're pretty lucky, unless you have poor general coordination, which is not really likely.

    There's high chances I am. None of these tests were official, though. As for general coordination, I have indeed taken official tests some time ago and I got good results on it.
    It's pretty cool, but I don't know how this will help me. xD

    I can learn basically anything as long as I care about it, but usually I tend to learn theorical stuff better. I'm not sure, but I think that's a left-brained thing.
