Sometimes I worry that I will suddenly lose the ability to differentiate left from right and the subsequent rejections will end my turking career.
I usually have to think about it, too. I blame my mom. She's a writes as a lefty but does everything else with her right and has a terrible time with directions. I always have to pause and think about which hand I right with. If I'm giving her directions in the car, I have to say turn your way or turn my way.

Are you, by any chance, at all on the spectrum? I only ask because anecdotally, I (and several of my friends who are also aspies/non-NT) have the same problem. I always check multiple times before advancing because I'm never sure I made the right choice initially.
Checking and re-checking obsessively. And I'm still not convinced.

Tell me to mark the 4th button from the left and I might cry :cry:

I have thrown more than one survey back because I wasn't sure I passed that particular AC.

I have thrown more than one survey back with the impression I missed an AC.

Just today I was doing a survey with my bff next to me to show her what's up with turking and surveys. We hit two ACs and she asked what they were, so I told her. But...there was no correct answer to them at all. She asked me how the heck I was supposed to answer these to prove I wasn't mindlessly clicking and my only answer was "fuck if I know."

At least I had someone else next to me this time verifying I wasn't just confused, lol. There really was NO correct answer.

OMG. That one always gets me. I obsessively count and make sure I do it correctly.

I haven't thrown any back, but definitely wasted way too much time counting and freaking out that I wasn't doing it right. This is why I hate math so much. I'll do the same problem again and again until I feel like I'm losing my mind obsessing over it.

I have a VERY hard time with left from right. Sometimes I have to use the hands JL thing to tell and even then I can't ALWAYS get it right. Not sure why, I think I may have "issues"
I do this too, fiance makes fun of me. (Note: In a playful way.) Like I know both of them but for some reason if you tell me TURN RIGHT HURRY I will always go left. Every. Single. Time. Fiance has started using this against me and will yell the wrong direction so I go the right way >.>
