Abstract/OtherAbstract:
When a person is asked to cross their flexed legs then one thigh crossed over the other. This paper reviews the previous literature on leg crossing, and reports new data. In this study about 62% of the population (n = 292) are right leg-crossers, 26% are left leg-crossers, and the remaining 12% report that they have no preference or are indifferent. The incidence of left leg-crossing differs between the sexes, being higher in males, although there seems to be no association with age. Leg-crossing is correlated to some extent with footedness, handedness and eyedness.
