I cannot tell right from left. Is this normal?
So, ever since I can remember I have had trouble with the concept of Right and Left. I'm good at spatial recognition and general directions, but when it comes to Right-ness of Left-ness of things, I have had, upon occasion, to look at my hands and orient my thinking based on where Left of a certain place should lie.
For instance, a few moments ago I was putting on my earphones and it took me 2 seconds to realize where the earphone marked 'R' should go.
This is a minor quirk and doesn't impede my life in any way(except being an annoying RoboRally player). I was just curious if there is a name for this condition and whether other people experience it as well.
I'm right handed, if that matters. And I'm pretty sure I'm not dyslexic.
Funnily enough, googling for this, I found an article
that talks about a discussion at MeFi. But I couldn't find it.
