Tossing and Tortured 'Till Dawn

I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide.

Let me return from my travels with this important question:

You approach a door with this sort of handle.

To enter the door, do you pull the handle up, towards the ceiling, or push it down, towards the floor?


Which hand do you open doors with?

That's it. No trick question.

    Ok, I'll bite. I find that I almost always open doors with my right hand, though I'm technically left-handed, and would move this type of knob toward the floor. My other technique for opening doors is a well placed karate kick....

    Shouldn't it open if the handle is either raised or lowered out of the horizontal position? Either up or down should move the latch into the door. I also open doors with my right hand although I'm mostly left-handed and it's easier to push down than to pull up.
