I write and eat with my left hand, throw and hit with my right.
I also use a computer mouse with my right hand, but something tells me that's learned.
Yup - that's what I do too.
The reason I wondered about this is they often say that a left-handed person has a dominant connection with their right brain:
RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
"big picture" oriented
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
knows object function
A lot of those qualities (not all but a lot) are the way they describe intuitives. I don't think that it is an absolute thing, that all intuitives are left-handed, but I would be curious to see how many left-handed people would be classified as intuitive...
Am I making any sense...??!

I think its that whole lefty art thing. One of my best friends was lefty but basically ambidextrous and he was definitely extremely N. Very artsy and embodied what you typically thought left handers would be like.
My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
Fortunately we live in enlightened times where people (or should I say non-left handed people?) no longer believe left-handers are Satan Spawn or something like that. My professor told me today (after noting that I was left handed) that the Latin (and Greek?) word for left-handed means "sinister" or something along those lines.
But still, I wouldn't trust us either. We have cooties!
Also, I thought I should mention that out of my three brothers and I, 3/4 of us are left-handed. I'm the only intuitive one.
