Equally well

Hi Doc

How many people are there that are "ambidexstrous"?, because it quite amazing that people who are, can do everything with both hands or feet equally well. How common that ?

Dear G

Very few people are born with total ambidexterity, but many become partially ambidexterous by means of continuous practice. e.g. professional footballers who can kick equally well with either foot; left-handed persons often develop some degree of ambidexterity by default, from living in a right-handed world. The Genecare Medical Genetic Consultant for example!
