"Now, researchers have discovered that they can determine whether someone is a left- or right-brain person by looking at how they use their cell phones."

"The researchers asked 717 subjects to fill out an online survey, which determined their hemispheric dominance (left or right) and how they used their cell phone. Of the subjects, 90 percent were right handed and 9 percent were left handed. The researchers found that 68 percent of the righties held their phones to their right ear and 25 percent to the left, while 7 percent couldn’t commit to a side. Seventy-two percent of southpaws held their phones to the left side, 23 to the right side, and 5 percent had no preference."

I throw with my left....

Righties who hold with their left hand probably were in the habit of writing things down from the conversation using their right, don't you think? Or dialing with it. Must be different body habits with cells and touchscreens. What about thumbedness :leeann2:. Most people use both, so are they dual brained or half brained?

It against the law to talk on the phone with the phone in your hands in Tennessee while driving. If your texting, it's worse. Have to pull over somewhere to use your hands while talking or texting. Or use your bluetooth.

Thinking we have waaaaay too many researchers if this is where money is going...hope it wasn't tax dollars.

trying to use my phone with my right hand is just awkward. Not just talking on the phone but using it like with my right thumb.
