Does that mean normal, then, Keith?

I'm right-handed and used to be right-eyed. But I got a wound my right eye and became left-eyed without any problem (can't focus accurately with my right eye anymore).

Left handed and right eyed - I can't hardly even look through the viewfinder with my left eye.

I shoot a gun right handed but a bow left handed.

I bat left handed but swing a golf club right handed.

Use a Wacum tablet with my left hand but a mouse with my right (if I still used one - not needed with the tablet).

I write left handed, but right now have a bum left elbow so have been trying to sign autographs with my right hand - my signature is actually better with my right hand, but I can't write anything else legible with that hand - I'll stick to being a lefty!

If left alone in a vast flat wilderness with no bearings or directional tools, I will wander clockwise when trying to go straight.

right handed, right eyed.

When using the rangefinders tho, I keep both eyes open while shooting.

Both eyes on the ground glass too - except when using magnifier.

Very left handed but right eyed - the latter probably becasue my left eye vision is significantly worse than the right (myopia)

Same for me, even though my right eye is developing cataracts. I just can't "think" through my left eye.

Curiously, I have nerve deafness in both ears that measures almost the same in both, but in speech comprehension tests my right ear scores much better than my left. But with all this "right"-ness, I'm pretty far left politically.†

Naturally left handed but almost fully ambidextrous. I use either eye for focusing, depending on the circumstances.

Right handed, left eye for tripod shots, right eye for hand held (which doesn't happen much).  Somebody else had to point that out to me.  Right brained in proportion to the bank account.

Right handed and right eyed, but with glasses. Hearing is excellent though(although still ringing from last sundays game(Metrodome in Minneapolis). I tell people that I have the eyes and ears of a bat!

Right handed, left eyed. That includes everything, from shooting, to cameras, to microscopes. Sounds like there's little correlation between handedness and dominant eye.

I might add that the root of the word "sinister" translates to "left-handed."
