Body language experts believe that the way you cross the fingers of both of your hands says a lot about the person you are. This conclusion is based on the research conducted by Nobel Prize-winning Roger Wolcott Sperry. His research proved that the brain is divided into two parts—left and right—and a person’s behavior can depend on which part is more active.
I try to unravel this mysterious connection to help you understand more about yourself.
1. Left thumb on top
If that’s the way you clasp your hands, then you are highly likely to be a practical person. You are someone who never makes decisions in the heat of the moment. Before arriving at a conclusion, you weigh the pros and cons. It is also very difficult to deceive you. You have an innate quality to see through the lies of other people.
For these reasons, you are highly valued by your friends and family members, who often come to you to seek your advice. And more often than not, you advise wisely. But all of this does not mean that you are a serious person. On the contrary, your wit can lighten up even the gloomiest of places. Your quirky sense of humor makes you a people magnet in social gatherings.
You are also a romantic who knows exactly how to handle courtships. You know precisely what to say and when to say it.
2. Both of the thumbs aligned
You are someone who believes that the devil lies in the details. You are a perfectionist and expect the same level of dedication and concentration from others as well. Leadership comes naturally to you, and you always lead by example. But that doesn’t mean that you are not considerate about the needs and circumstances of other people.
You always hear the opinion of other people and try to understand their point of view before arriving at a decision. Your frankness, honesty, and sincerity can sometimes be disarming to some people, but these are the same qualities that endear you to many others.
In relationships, as well, you value frankness and honesty, and you never shy away from speaking your mind nor do you stop your beloved from doing so.
