    How can you tell how good your manual dexterity is? I have no clue. I mean, I'm intersted in dentistry and have very steady hands and can move them in all directions real well. Is there something I'm missing? How can I tell if I have good (or poor)manual dexterity? Thanks

    Do you play the piano or any other manual instrument? Can you type very well? Do you have good handwriting?

    On the other hand...

    Do you fumble things around a lot?

    Those are just some thoughts...not necessarily proofs of whether you have good dexterity.

    I type really well. I don't play any instruments, however. I'm not a fumbler. Plus, I played sports all my life so I have good hand-eye coordination. I'd bet I don't have the WORST dexterity in the world, which is relieving! :)
