Harry Potter writing a question in Tom Riddle's diary with his right hand.

Handedness is a term that refers to having a preference for using, and greater fine motor skill in, one hand over the other.[1] 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.[2] The majority of humans are right-handed.[1]

It is probable that handedness is a factor in wand-making, as Garrick Ollivander asked his customers which was their "wand arm."[2]
