Handedness and Footedness Test
Ever wonder why it is that you reach for and do certain things with one hand over the other? Handedness has been used to describe left or right preference but one may also be mixed-handed. Cross dominant people use their right hands for some tasks and their left for others. Ambidextrous people can use both hands equally well. In this experiment, we will be working with test subjects to determine hand or foot preference is in given situations.
For accurate results in this procedure, it is important for that your test subjects do not know what you are testing for. This controlled variable allows for all of your results to be unaffected by your subjects’ interference.
