    Just to help illustrate my current inquiry, something to the effect of "pedidextrous"

    Soccer players should have some idea, perhaps o_O


    This has nothing to do with Dex.

    i think ambidextrious applies to your whole body

    batting left handed requires a left handed stance, same with boxing southpaw

    i assumed you already googled it so i didn't bother

    to answer your question:

    no

    And... if anyone remembers that thread I posted looking for a word for "a need to take responsibility", it was "Abasement"

    respekts man.. yeah I did google it... and every definition says it only has to do with hands... but what you said makes a lot of sense and so I'll just go with it.. if it doesn't have to do with feet as well as hands.. then whatever, it should

    fyi

    Damn. There are certain thing I feel comfortable doing both lefty and righty. I can switch stances without giving up much power. Can't write very well left-handed though.

    Ugh, I'm left handed. I swear to God if I told the bus driver I was a leftie he'd make me move to the back of the bus. And I'd be like, whatever, now Outkast can make a song about me.
