    Smile Kim - left handed?

    Thinking about the Last TPTB chat yesterday, and I remembered someone wondered why Kim's new Kimmunicator is on her right wrist instead of her left, and it got me to wondering - could Kim be left-handed. Not having that much to research, I looked at some of the episodes I've got on iTunes, and the collage shows some of what I found

    Clockwise from top:
    1. Ill-Suited: To answer Ron's call at 3 in the morning, she picks up the phone with her left hand, despite her right hand being closer.
    2. S4 intro/unknown episode: Wait. She's pulling the cord with her right hand. My bad.
    3. Intro (animation from a season 1 ep, IIRC): Kim's grabbing onto Rufus with her right hand, but she's using her left hand to hold and control the grappler gun. Given that most people in that situation would opt to hold the gun with their dominant hand...
    4. Rufus vs. Commodore Puddles: Jumping out of the helicopter, Kim holds onto the rope with her left hand. Granted, it was closer to the rope than her right, but still...
    5. Intro: Kim answers her Kimmunicator, holding the device in her left hand. (Had it been in her right, her thumb would be visible). She's been known to hold the Kimmunicator in her left hand at other times as well ("Ill-Suited" after escaping from Dementor's "house" and "Monkey Fist Strikes" while at Bueno Nacho, to name two.)
    Now, there's probably evidence toward Kim being a right-hander, and I can see Kim making herself ambidexterous (part of that whole "drive to succeed/yes, I can do anything" thing) and I'll admit to a bit of a bias (I'm left-handed myself) but the aforementioned evidence (plus things such as the fact that in all her mission outfits the holster's been on the right side - where it should be for a left-hander) and such make me wonder: could Kim be a natural lefty?
    What do you think?

    I'm going to have to say she's right handed... as seen in car alarm you can clearly see here sign her name with her right hand.

    The best test for this for this is to see which hand she writes with, and as can clearly be seen in "Car Alarm", she signs her name with her right hand.

    Many righthanders wear their wrist watches on their right hand, so that is not necessarily proof she's a leftie, plus the fact that her Kimmunicator also had several gadgets within in that require it to be aimed would make more likely that a righthander would wear it there. Your other reasons are suggestive only and I think justifiable only in that the hand being used at that time was simply the more appropriate one at the time.

    So I would have to say that the the fact she writes with her right hand makes her righthanded. Could she be ambidextrous? Yes, but not a southpaw I think.

    Good catch... I forgot about that one. I think the one in car alarm stuck out because we never knew what the signature looked like.

    I'd also go with her being ambidextrous. Kim seems like the type of person who would not only be able to do that (she can do anything!), but who would need to be able to use both hands given her "hobby".

    And yet she wears her watch/Kimmunicator on her Right hand as well. That's odd considering most people wear watches on their weak hand.

    I'm Right handed but do use my left hands to do things. I don't drive a stick but I often stear one handed and use my left hand. Talk on the phone... I use my left hand. There's probably a few other things but those are what I can think of right off the bat.

    Like I've commented before, she's probably something of an ambie. With her level of hand-eye coordination and strength training, her left arm is likely as strong as her right. If something beeps or makes itself grabbable, she just goes for whatever's handy. (ah, pun. :P)

    Hmm. I'm right handed but I bat and highlight left handed. And I don't think the phone-with-the-opposite-hand thing is uncommon, since it allows the person to use the right hand for other things.
