Feigning Hand Preference?

An interesting case study in the May Journal of Forensic Science discusses individuals who feign handedness in crimes (i.e. the assailant is known to be left-handed whereas the defendant claims to be right-handed or vice versa). Usually a physician or forensic psychologists would be asked to test hand preference, but it’s known this can be faked.

Take the online handedness survey below compiled by the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory.
