A SHOW OF HANDS.... a meditation on handedness 12 Fiona Stary Room Leader and Teacher Docklands, Gowrie Victoria I had an interesting realisation during a hula hooping class. Having never hooped with others before, I realised that I was spinning in the opposite direction to most of my fellow classmates. I tried spinning in the conventional direction and it was remarkably awkward. This didn't surprise me, exactly -- as a strong left-hander, I am accustomed to doing many motor tasks in a different way to most others. However, the hooping observation made me consider the complexity of the laterality and asymmetry of our bodies. Not only do we have a hand preference, but also typically a foot, eye and ear preference, and it seems, a directional spinning preference.
