Handedness is a term that refers to having a preference for using, and greater fine motor skill in, one hand over the other. In Muggles, handedness is usually defined by which hand is used to write, while handedness in wizards and witches is more commonly defined by which hand is used to hold the wand. The majority of humans are right-handed.
