Hmmm... i guess it's easy to change things when you're young. Now a days, whenever I try to write with my left hand, the words comes out really messy. And it's really hard for me to develop a dominant left hand now that I'm older

my friend is dominantly right-handed (ie writing) but he uses his left when playing badminton. same goes for my other friend who is dominantly left-handed but he plays hits, shoots and throws with his right.
im a righty btw =)

go lefty! sometimes this is a advantage to opponents that dont think about what hand i use, so they tend to hit it towards my forehand thinking by instinct that its my backhand(thinking im right handed) and then bam they figure it out eventually sometimes, the hit it to my backhand, and surprise!, i just did a backhand smash, haha didnt know what hit him, i have a good backhand, so either way, the guy lost.

The Left-Handed Advantage
As many lefties might point out, being left-handed can also offer intellectual prowess. Tests conducted by Alan Searleman from St Lawrence University in New York found there were more left-handed people with IQs over 140 than right-handed people. Famous left-handed thinkers in history from Albert Einstein to Isaac Newton to Benjamin Franklin seem to underline the point.
As Hopkins says, it may be that left-handed people occupy the extremes when it comes to health and ability.
"The anomaly is left-handed people make up the extremely gifted and the extremely compromised," said Hopkins. "The rest of us make up the middle ground."

I've been toying with the idea for quite a while now.. to train up my left hand. Just for the fun of it. Hehe.
Ooh I really dislike playing with lefties. I always attack their forehand side! To make matters worse, only before I target the shuttle to the leftie's forehand side do I realise what I'm doing.. and then my mind immediately wants to change and the shuttle flies off elsewhere/halfcourt/ends up in the net. Lol.
I generally use my right-hand for nearly everything.. except when steering my bicycle one-handed. Since young I've found it much easier to maintain balance if I use my left hand to steer. Why is that I wonder?

I'm a righthander.Haha .. indeed when playing with lefties are troublesome.
It's like they are naturally on the offensive side when playing with righthanders.

Can I be a smart arse and say that even though I am right handed it isnt unknown for me to play left handed (in none competition games).

I think you make too much of it. Left handers seems to get more attention because they make up a small percentage of the general population. Percentage of the gifted among left handers are higher due to the smaller number of lefthanders, thus more noticeable comparing to gifted right handers.

I was born left-handed but taught right-handed by chinese culture.
I think it both sides have their advantages.
Right-handed: Most objects are made for right-handed people. When I was buying my first guitar, there was much more choice for right-handers than vs left.
Left-handed: I guess feeling special?
There are some really scientific studies but im no expert

Well, awesome thing about badminton is that there are no righty rackets!
10-30-2006, 08:55 PM #186
Wow! I'm one of the only lefty badminton players 0_o

I actually thought that the ratio of lefties would be lower (10-15%), but apparently not for badminton. Awesome. I've tried training lefty before, it's kinda hard for overhead shots and forehands but backhands have been real easy. A coach of mine once said that backhand is naturally easier to learn and more powerful, it's just the timing that's harder. It's true, I think. Can anyone else cofirm or deny this with their own personal experience?
