Are You Secretly Left-Handed? (TEST)
- Are you

secretly

left

-

handed

? - Let's talk about it. ♪ (Theme music) ♪ - Good mythical morning! - 12% of the world's population is

left

-

handed

, and you might be

left

-

handed

and not even know it. - Hm. - And here's why. Due to the fact that 12% of people are

left

-

handed

... - I thought it would be higher. and 88% of people are right-

handed

. I'm just doing some math in my head. - You did. That was good. That was good. - Quite fast. That means almost 90% of the world's population is right-

handed

... - Mm. - ...so we have a right-

handed

world. And there are many things you might not think of that are actually - designed for right-

handed

people. - Right.
are you secretly left handed test
Like a measuring cup. You know, if it has a handle, that's actually how it is, so you can read the measurements while you're holding it. Watches are made for right-handers. You turn

left

if you try... - The shutter. - ...to make the clasp. Computer Mice: Right-

handed

. Zippers are right-

handed

because the flap is on the

left

. So if you're

left

-

handed

, you kind of get in there and -- - sorry for having to demonstrate here. - Don't demonstrate. Or if you like to zip up a jacket, I think that's... - Yes. school desks. Scissors. - Maybe? - Right. - Lots for right-handers. - I have a pair of scissors here. - That's why...
are you secretly left handed test
You can't see how to cut with these

left

ies. - I can't see the cut. - Well, a lot of people - a lot of parents, especially a long time ago, but it still happens - have actually seen

left

-

handed

ness appearing in their children, and they try (yelling) "Hit that

left

hand! Hit it down, boy !" They want people to be right-

handed

because it's a right-

handed

world. - Well, because that's how society is set up. - And it turns out that might not be a good idea. There's a study from Sweden that says that ambidextrous kids -- because if you try to get someone to use their right hand when they're actually

left

-

handed

, they just grow up ambidextrous. - You have the same benefit. - Mmm. mmm Or some equal use of two hands.
are you secretly left handed test
Ambidextrous children are at higher risk for developmental disabilities such as ADHD. And another study found that ambidextrous children and adults perform worse than

left

- or right-

handed

people in a range of skills, particularly math, memory and reasoning. Wow. I've only ever associated ambidexterity with general awesomeness. And that's because you're a bit ambidextrous. - Oh. (laughs) - And that's how you feel about yourself. That's exactly why I wanted to do this, because, you know, we had - this long-standing thing where I - yeah. a theory that you are a closed

left

-hander. - Right. - I have many reasons why... - ...I believe that. - I write with my right hand.
But that's easy to explain, because as a child you were raised to write with your right hand, as were many other people. But when I drink from it, yeah, I'm... - Look, there you have it. - I keep it over here. You keep it on the

left

. You use your

left

hand. - But I think it looks good over here. - And so are you -- strangely, this blows my mind -- you're holding a microphone in your

left

hand. - Yes. - if you look at any pics like vidcon on stage, i hold it like a right-hander, and link - it's not for symmetry.
Because you're the most comfortable... - So I can gesture with my right hand. - Mm, okay. It's like, you know how I do it when I have a mic. I'm like... I can't gesture with my

left

hand, it's like, "Oh, God." But today I'm going to try to definitely prove, or at least I care how

left

-

handed

you are. Because I took this

test

, which we're about to do on

left

handersday.com, and found that I'm 100% right-

handed

. Every single question was for a right-hander. - OK. I already know a few of the ones you're going to answer

left

-

handed

, just from experience. - So do the

test

on me.
Click on the link in the description if you want to play along and discover your

left

-

handed

ness with me. At least that's your theory. Okay, here's the first question. Do you consider yourself

left

-

handed

– or right-

handed

? - Right-

handed

. Write with my right hand. But I think you're

left

-

handed

, so maybe we should put both. - Just put it right. - OK. Good. - I don't consider myself ambidextrous. - You said nice. You write with your writing hand. You're cutting... You seem to be using scissors with your right hand. - Right hand. Definitive. - (snapping noise) Here's a bat, Link.
Grab it with one hand! Grab it with one hand! Grab it with one hand! You nailed both of them. - Well, I'm a right-hander. - Good yes. Because you were trained to. But if you had to hold it with one hand. "A burglar is about to walk in! Oh, I have to use one hand!" - The right hand. - Okay I got it. Right hand. - Right hand. (laughs) - Eating with a spoon. - Right hand. - Use your right hand for this. You know. I hold the bowl with my

left

hand. Holding a toothbrush. you brush your teeth - So, with the right hand. - OK.
Right hand. Good. And a toothbrush. I use a toothbrush. Is that the question? Brush your hair! Quickly! (brush clatters to floor) - Brush my hair? - (crew off-screen laughing) Don't think about it! brush it! brush it! I'm not really going to brush for hair. I don't want to play around with it. But I brush my hair with my hands and use both hands equally. - mmm - The

left

side of my head, I use my -

left

hand. And my right side of - That's not an option. - my head, I use my right hand. - If you had to choose, what would it be? - If I had to choose? - Looks like the

left

hand to me. - (Crew laughs offscreen) - I don't know.
I move the glasses with - both hands. - Just be honest. - Oh, hello, hello! - There's more hair on the right side. - Yes, you know what? So let's go... - I'll let you go to the

left

. - OK. (laughs) - If you really want to. - I use my

left

hand. - Okay, now... If you use a telescope, which eye do you look into the telescope? Well, I know that you get the dominant eye by looking through the... - It's Illuminati, Link. - ...Illuminati, and then you come back, and it becomes au --

left

eye -- it automatically becomes your dominant eye. - OK. - In any case, my

left

eye is dominant.
It is. If I were to shoot it with a bow and arrow, so be it. When you're on the phone, which ear do you put your phone to? - Look at that. - It's in my

left

pocket.

left

ear - OK. This blows my mind because... - Is that weird? ...I can't converse with... If for some reason I had an earmuff on my right ear and I had to converse with my mother... - Oh, no. - ...I couldn't hear them on my cell phone. - I can't pierce my ear with the... - Yes, I feel totally incompetent. - ... phone hole.
On the right side. I've never done this before, but I write with my

left

hand. - Oh God. For real? - Yes. - You write with your

left

hand? - Yes. - See?! - Because my phone is in my

left

hand! This is not a question. I can't even answer. I feel like I want. - So I write like this. - There are no questions about microphones... - And if I then have to use the other hand. - ... or a text message. OK. Which foot do you use to kick a ball? Well, I personally know and have been there and witnessed that the only two goals you've ever scored in your football career have been with your...

left

foot. -

Left

foot.
I kick with my right foot most of the time, but I only scored with my

left

foot. - Yes, the successful foot is your -

left

foot, so let's go

left

foot. - (laughs) Okay. Cross your arms in front of you. Okay, the right arm is up. So right arm up, so right-

handed

? - Uh... I think so. - OK. Start clapping your hands. Hey look at this! - (clapping) Good job. - There's a great show. - What... - You're just casual. - (clapping) I'm going like this. - (clapping) - I'll keep my

left

hand down. - When I do a side, it's - right hand up. - (clapping) - So that's right-

handed

. - But you weren't straight. - It's the right hand. - You kind of laughed like a lunatic professor, - that's how you started. - (both clapping) - I was right-

handed

. (coughs) - Okay, right-

handed

.
Clasp your hands behind your back with one hand holding the other wrist. - Um. - Which hand is holding? - The

left

hand, ladies and gentlemen! -

Left

hand for it. - OK. Which hand do you throw - Okay. - a ball with? - The right. - That's not -- listen. - And this is what it looks like. - (Crew laughs offscreen) - That's why I never throw a ball. But which hand do you play cornhole with? Both hands. If I'm on the right side of the board, I'll use my

left

hand... - Just the other day at my house, - ...and I'll dominate. we played basketball - (among laughter) we did, believe it or not. - (both Rhett & Link) We played horse. - And you point your

left

hand all the time.
You said, "I'm better with my

left

hand." - Well, that was (stuttering) - that's one of the reasons I wanted to do that. - That was an advantage. You play cornhole and shoot basketball with your

left

hand? I walk with my

left

hand. Which hand do you use to turn the pages of a book? Here is my famous book My Hair Goes Up. Self published. - It's easy because... - You opened it with your

left

hand! But then I turn the pages with my right hand. - Alright, right hand. - But what will you do: - reach all the way across?
That's crazy. - If you have to hold the bat - you already said that. The

left

hand becomes... The right hand is the lower one because you are right-

handed

. - No, the right hand is up. - Yes, it's upstairs, but if you - go like this, it's downstairs. - Oh. So that's correct. Right hand. And finally - this is the most important question - would you like to become a member of the

Left

-Handers Club and receive our free monthly newsletter? Already a member, right? - No. No, I don't want any - No. - Newsletter more. So drum roll... - Okay. - Submit your survey. - ...for my results. - How

left

-

handed

is Link? - You have 0%? - Zero.
I have 0%. - Good. The internet is kind of... Whoa! 35%! Oh. You must be over 40% to be ambidextrous. Link, you're probably right-

handed

. - I'm sub-dextrous. - But there wasn't a question about the mic here, so I'll say the science is wrong on this one, - and you're still

left

-

handed

. - Well, I'm 35%

left

-

handed

according to the

test

. Play along, link - That's more than me! in the description if you want. Don't do it if you don't. Perhaps your world will be shaken - along with mine. - (laughs) Yes. Now for something that doesn't require any

left

or right power.
Oh. It's time for the Airhead Bites Can't Stop, Won't Stop Challenge. Every week we go head-to-head in a ridiculous physical challenge - to see who can last the longest. - At the end of four weeks and four challenges, one of us will be declared the winner, and that person gets to sit on a beanbag with a bunny while wearing a blue tuxedo and eat bacon while their buddy tells them a bedtime story about how great he is in a - British accent. - I hope I win this. Today's challenge is called "Hold closer, little dancer". (Rhett sighs deeply) - Here we are. - Very flattering as you can see. (laughs) Okay, in this challenge we're going to spin like ballerinas... - Mhm. pirouettes. - We have to hold up our arms like this. - You're still working on it... - Yes. - ... shaved pit there I see. (laughs) - Yes. (stuttering) This is going to upset me. - Your account balance.
Yes. - My balance is disturbed because I have more armpit hair on this side. Anyway, we're spinning at the same pace, and the first man to leave his circle of trust loses. OK. - Why is this the circle of trust? - Because I trust that I will win. - (laughs) No, I don't know. - (Link laughs) Well, mine is a circle of trust that I will gain. - (Rhett) It's just a circle. - You look great, by the way. - You too! Yes. - You're doing really well. Not really good. OK, let's go. - ♪ (classical piano) ♪ - (Stevie voiceover) 3, 2, 1, start! - (feet shuffle) - We have to walk about the same speed, - so make sure we... - (feet shuffle) - Unh. - I have no idea where the...
I'm already... Looking down doesn't help. (feet shuffle) - (Rhett) Oh my goodness. - I make strange noises. - (Link) I can't help it. - Oh, I'm losing it. ♪ (classical piano) ♪ - You gotta go faster man! - Are we going at the same rate? I feel like I'm getting faster. Oh oh oh! (slow motion, deeper) Oh, oh, oh! - (Crew off screen) Link, you're out. - I'm out?! -Hey! Hey! Hey! - What? I thought: Go, go, go, go, go! - (crew off-screen laughing) Whoa, I still can... I still can't... I still can't... - Now I'm a tapper. - Still can't do anything.
Okay, Airheads Bites might have long-lasting flavor, but you don't have long-lasting ballerina skills like me. (laughs) (know) - Another challenge next week. - Thanks for liking, commenting and subscribing. And thanks to Airheads Bites for sponsoring this episode! - You know what time it is. Hi. My name is Angela and this is Leonard and we are from Bowling Green, Ohio. And it's time to spin the wheel of mythicity!

They are? - Well, I am. - Ha! - Because it is me. - But I'm not. - And I did. - But I won't. - And you shouldn't. - Because I can. - Not. (laughs) - (evil laughter)
