Shared

Just like how the palm of our hands reveal something about our personality, so do other parts of our body.

But it's not just the palms of our hands that have something to say about our personality, the way we move and position the hand can be telling of a character trait too.

If you haven't already, make a fist without thinking too much about how you put your hand together. You can do this by closing your eyes, just make sure that the formation of your fist feels natural and not forced in any way.

Now, take a look at your fist, and observe where your thumb is positioned.

Is it on top, on the side, or covered by your other fingers?

What Your Fist Says About You

If your thumb is on the inside, you're a reserved person who doesn't trust people easily.

You find that you easily feel anxious and vulnerable when in new situations, and it takes a lot of time for you to adapt.

That being said, once people you trust get to know you better, they fall in love with your wits!

You have excellent problem solving skills and don't rush when making a decision.

Remember, don't be hard on yourself when you struggle to make a decisive decision. Sometimes it's better to think things over than make irrational choices.

People you can turn to for inspiration are famous introverts like Isaac Newton and Malala Yousafzai.

Both of these individuals faced numerous challenges in their life, and yet they're some of the most respected people in history.

If your thumb naturally goes to the side, you're an assertive person who doesn't take no for an answer.

People see you as a leader and someone they can trust. While you may not always feel like that, you try to, and that has made all the difference.

Some people may mistake your confidence as cockiness, but you know that's not true. You're grateful for the things you have in life and you're not afraid to flaunt the things you've worked hard for.

There's nothing in the world that excites you more than a new adventure, and it's probably a good idea to try new things every now and then to inspire you.

People you can turn to for inspiration are courageous, unconventional leaders like Elon Musk and Abraham Lincoln.

Don't be afraid to disrupt the flow, the end result will always be worth it.

If your thumb lies on top of your other fingers, you're an enthusiastic person who always keeps an open mind.

You are extremely friendly and have a lot of close friends who are inspired by your positive outlook in life.

It's not always sunshine and rainbows, but you try to make the most of every day.

Now if your thumb naturally curves upward, you have a really hard time making decisions, and that might be what has been setting you back in life.

That being said, you're an extremely talented and creative person, but you shouldn't let the fear of failure and what people think about you determine your worth.

People you can turn to for inspiration are Oprah Winfrey and Stephen Hawking. Both of these famous figures went through a series of setbacks in life that almost made them quit following their dreams, but they defied all odds and changed the world.
