So I've always used my left eye when using the viewfinder. Then I did that hand triangle trick to find out that my right eye is more dominate! What am I doin! lol Anyone else like this?

What hand triangle trick?


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Pretty cool trick. I guess I'm left eye dominant.

I'm right eye dominant, but I use my left eye because its less blurry compared to my right lol. Also feels more natural for me.

I did the test 10 times. I was right eye dominant 6 and left eye 4. Now i can pretty much hit 50/50 if I so choose. I guess I'm middle eye dominant. Actually I noticed that a lot was dependant on which side the triangle landed. When I put my hands up and it's a little to the right, the right eye zooms in first. If it's a little to the left, the left eye locks first.

Let's say I am completely blind in my left eye (hence "GoodEye")

Would it be fair to assume I'm right eye dominant?

I'm left eye.. Simply because I can't even tell my brain to close my left eye if looking through a view finder :p
