Goofy or Regular: Dominant Eye Test

This is a survey to see if there is any correlation of dominant eye to snowboard stance.

To check what your dominant eye is, make a circle with your fingers.
Look through that finger hole at an object with both eyes open.
Close your right eye.
If the object is still in the finger hole, you are left eye dominant.
Try to close the left eye instead.
If the object is still in the finger hole, you are right eye dominant.

EDIT: If you get inconsistent results with either hand, try using both hands to make a hole. Or just a finger.

Are you dumb? Which hand you use changes the outcome of this test.

Your eyes do not have the ability to focus on objects at two separate distances. your either looking at your finger hole and there is double vision of the object or vice versa. I never got a consistent outcome.

Luckily if you wanna take the time, here is a test to print out.

Here is a test that is easier. This one eliminates the right/left hand variable.

Are you dumb? Look THROUGH the hole you're making with your fingers (while both eyes are open) at an object. Close the left eye. If you see it through your fingers, you're right eye dominant. It's really not that hard.



Anyway, I'm goofy and I'm right eye dominant.

If you just use your right or left hand it changed the outcome of the test. You have to use the both hand method or the paper method thing I posted.

How does it change the outcome? Either hand I use I can only see the object through the hole with my right eye.

If I use my right hand, the income is "left eye dominant," if I use my left hand, I am "right eye dominant."

When I use both hands, I am right eye dominant.

You are right. But for me that only changes if I look through my fingers to the side of my body. If I look thorugh it in front with any hand. I'm left-eye dominant.

All this seems to prove is that most people are right-eye dominent!

What about right-handed vs left-handed and stance.

I'm left-eye dominent, right-handed and goofy-footed. Does that make me a freak!?!?
