    Default Are You Left or Right Eyed?

    I noticed that I hold the camera quite differently from everyone I know; I always look through the viewfinder with my left eye. I just stumbled upon this article (A Neat Trick To Determine Your Dominant Eye | DIYPhotography.net) and found that, yep, I truly am left-eyed. So which of your eyes is the dominant one? Are you looking through the viewfinder with your correct eye?

    That was cool! I'm left eyed dominant. I'm right handed though.

    I'm a lefty too. And I am left dominate according to this test. Very interesting!

    So interesting! I'm definitely right-eye dominant, which I would've figured anyway, but what a neat trick to find out for sure!

    Steph, I'm left-eyed and right-handed too! I think that's called cross-dominance. I'm glad you all think this is as intriguing as I do

    Right eye dominant and anti-dexterous (can't use either hand well), right handed actually.

    I didn't get conclusive results. It moved depending on which eye I closed. I tend to use my right eye to look through viewfinder but do sometimes use my left.

    I already know I am right-eye dominant but that test didn't work for me. The doorknob "moves away" for each closed eye. Which makes sense anyway.
    BUT I cannot even close my right eye by itself without the left eye trying to shut/to look with my left eye only---I have to use my hand to shut my right eye only! Lol I can only wink my left eye.

    Shadow_grey, sounds like you might be ambidextrous-eyed!

    Amy, I have trouble winking too. I squint pretty badly with my open eye, regardless of which one I'm trying to close
