John Santrock's study, mentioned above, also suggested that more. For example, writing is best done with one hand and kicking a ball requires only the use of one foot. From a population perspective, handedness is the most right-biased with 90% of individuals preferring the right hand, while eye and ear preference are the least right-biased with about 60–70% of individuals preferring to use the right eye or ear.

Right-handedness is the most common type observed in 70–95% of the world population, followed by left-handedness, and then a very rare type of mixed handedness and ambidexterity. The Puzzle of Left-handedness is an enlightening, engaging, and entertaining odyssey through the puzzles and paradoxes, theories and myths, of left-handed lore. Chock full of facts and fiction, it’s a book to be read with both hands.
