What hand is more sensitive?

What hand is more sensitive, your dominant or non-dominant?

Many people pulled out their non-dominant hand first. I had fun watching all of my family (subjects) doing the experament.

I thought that the subjects would pull out their non-dominant hand first because they are used to using their dominant hand and it would be less sensitive if you use it more.

Equipment

First you put both of your hands into a large metal pot of ice cold water. You hold your hands in there and wait until the pain gets too bad. You pull out the hand that hurts the most and I record it.

It turns out that the majority of the subjects pulled out their non-dominant hand first. One subject was ambidextrous and pulled out both hands at the same time.
