    when i was a child, i was right eye dominant and my left eye squinted. they put a pirate sticker on my right eye, so i took over the left eye, it stopped squinting and it became stronger in terms of dioptries. (i had glasses as well)

    when they removed the sticker, i continued to use the stronger left eye for practical means. i wonder if this has messed me up. you know, how left handed people claim to be messed up through being forced to live right handed.

    It seems I am left eye dominant.

    When interacting with people, I usually look into their left (my right) at first, then possibly shift between the eyes.

    A lot of times I seem to forget to look in the eyes though. I look all over the face or somewhere else, then I quickly look back at the eyes when I remember. I hate it when the other person looks me back into the eyes for too long, makes me feel really weird.
    Generally, when speaking I initiate more eye contact, when listening, I start looking elsewhere.

    If it's a girl I like, I don't mind holding the eye contact though.

    This is so odd for me. I can honestly say that I have never thought about this before. I hope I won't be too distracted by paying attention to this something new the next time I talk to someone face to face. =P

    Edit: Oh, right to left, I guess, so it says. I'll see about that.

    My right to their left, apparently.

    I'm apparently right-eyed.

    I usually don't look people in the eye unless I'm around one of those annoying people that suspect you're autistic or something if you don't (because eye contact always makes me feel uncomfortably vulnerable), and then I become very self-conscious about eye contact around them, making sure to do it to their satisfaction. When I do look people in the eye, though, I actually tend to focus in-between their eyes in an attempt to look into both at once. It usually seems to work well enough to be seen as looking them in the eyes.

    Yes. If you're right-handed, then your left eye should be dominant.

    And if you're left-handed, then it should be your right one.

    It has to do with brain dominance

    And if you're in between (partial ambidextry = cross-dominance), like me, well, those tests are puzzling, because even if my left eye is slightly dominant, I can switch it easily with my right one "in just a blink of an eye". The same reflex applies with telescopes, cameras, and my plant foot. I can use either one or the other, it's confusing. It means I'm equally clumsy with both sides of my body.

    So when I look at the face of people, I endlessly switch from their left eye to their right one, from the right to the left, and so on.

    Left eye dominant, but right handed. I'm sort of a strange case in general when it comes to left/right dominance, because aside from being right-handed, almost everything else indicates the opposite dominance. It's almost like my body is ambidextrous, but my hands aren't.

    You're perfectly normal. The cranial nerves are inverted compared to the ones which command the rest of the body. Thus if you are right-handed, it means that the left hemisphere of your brain is dominant.
