    I'm predominantly right-handed, with odd exceptions

    I can do most things with my left hand but write neatly and throw with accuracy, but it takes extra effort to focus that much and the switching is too disruptive for complicated situations, so only really bother on a lark and continue temporarily until bored.

    I can do most things both handed except for throwing which I cannot do left handed. I used to be able to write both handed (both correct direction, inverse and/or upside down, separately or at the same time) but that requires practice. I cannot write left handed now. And as time has gone on, being in a world where writing is not used that often (especially cursive) I have noticed my writing ability in my right hand is not as good as it used to be. So at least when writing is concerns, I believe that most people could learn to write with either hand if they tried.

    One example people do not think of often is via sports. For baseball, it is quite easy to use a bat with either hand. For hockey it is not. For that I can use a player stick with left hand but a goalie stick with right hand. If holding a hockey stick is how you determine handedness in holding a shovel, broom or gardening tool, then I can use those either handed. Especially shovelling snow in the winter, I will often switch handedness during the work.

    I'm ambidextrous although I wouldn't say totally. I prefer to write with my left hand, I can also write with my right hand quite well however. I use the mouse with my right hand but I can also use it with the left, I prefer the right though, it's more convenient. I can do most things with both hands except for eating and scrolling on the phone, I prefer to use my right hand for those. Most other things I do with the left hand, like throwing things, picking things up, etc.
