When you clasp your hands together, which thumb is uppermost?

Try the thumb alignment test. Then try doing it the other way. It will probably feel uncomfortable.

Thumb alignment test

Here is what that suggests:

Left Thumb on Top:

  • Practical approach, logic-driven.

  • 'Head over heart' decision-maker.

  • Reliable, responsible, and resourceful.

  • Intelligent, quick-witted, and wise.

  • Enjoys mentally stimulating conversations. Right Thumb on Top:

  • High self-awareness, in tune with emotions.

  • Highly empathetic and perceptive.

  • Noticing details comes naturally.

  • Caring, good listener in relationships.

  • Exceptional at meeting emotional needs.

  • A magnetic personality that people love to be around.

As a follow up exercise, try holding your clasp in the opposite manner and leave it there for a few minutes. You may find it becomes more comfortable.
