It's recently occured to me that while using the computer, I use my index finger on the mouse wheel (scroll wheel). I used to use my middle finger way back in the day. I asked a few people and got multiple answers.

Discuss which finger you use and why you believe are a better person for using that particular finger.
Balls.

I use my bad mother finger.
Aka middle.
It's for everying, shredding, flipping off, hand pleasures for the missus.
and many more.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

Internet/general crap: index
DAW/REcording: middle so my index and ring are free to left and right click, and my thumb and pinky work the side buttons of my mighty mouse.

I use my index finger.
I even hold my mouse at a 45 degree angle to the left lol so index finger feels more natural

This exactly.

I must be weird because I use my index for mouse and the side of my thumb for clicking.
#21
Both at the same time, as I'm on a netbook. When I actually use a mouse, then index.
#22
I use my index for the scrolling, but sometimes that finger gets tired so I switch to the middle. The internet is tough work.

I didn't even know people actually use their index finger for scrolling

That is so uncomfortable.

I use my middle finger so I can have my index to stimulate her.... oh wait.

I use my middle. I thought I used my index, so I tried it. It feels weird.

Laptop. I use my index to scroll and usually to click. Since I just have to tap the touch pad to click it makes sense to just use the same finger I scroll with.

I occasionally switch to my middle finger if I'm scrolling a lot. Mostly just to give my index finger a bit of a break.
#29
Depends on the mouse I'm using. Right now, middle is for scrolling.
#30
I have a laptop, and it varies. I use my middle finger to scroll whilst clicking, and alternate between my middle and index fingers the rest of the time. I voted index, though, as that's what I was using at the time.
#31
middle finger only.

*looks at poll results*

what the hell is wrong with you people?

If I'm using the touch pad thingy on the laptop I use my index but if I'm using a mouse with a scroll thing then I use my middle finger.

Index finger after I tried, but I had thought I used my middle

Same here
#38
Index finger for left clicking, scrolling with my middle finger, and my ring finger for right clicking. Doing it any othe way means you are a noob.


#39
I've got a bit of a carry over from bass playing happening I think. I alternate between middle and forefingers...
I am me. Live with it.

I... I don't know... I can't tell now. They both feel awkward.
