I just want to chime in on this.

Everyone has always told me that I "write like a lefty." I have some manner of writing in my right hand which is common of most lefties. After taking notes in class, the side of my hand normally has tons of graphite on it.

No one taught me to write this way, it naturally felt correct to me. I remember teachers in school telling me as a kid I wasn't writing properly and would use those little rubber pencil holder things to try and force my hand in the "correct" position, but in the end, I kept writing the "wrong" way.

That being said:

- I throw with my right hand
- I bat lefty
- I snowboard goofy
- I punch/kick with my right hand and foot
- I spin like a lefty (snowboarding and skating, I naturally want to spin to the left)
- There are many occasions in which my left arm or leg feel more natural, or stronger, or easier to use, in really specific and odd scenarios. I can't tell you exactly which ones.

So, I was being raised in a manner like you are saying: people in school were telling me to write like a righty. But all evidence in my life points to the complete and utter opposite. Yes, there are many things that are pre-programmed, and many other things that can be learned.

One can learn to be ambidextrous, but we will always naturally start off with one dominant side that is pre-programmed.

I'm left-handed, they failed to convert me. I had to take guitar lessons righty for months before they gave up and let me go southpaw.
