Here are some general rules about thumbs:
*Thumbs make tools work and are your most useful digit on your hands.
*A large part of your brain area is dedicated to controlling the thumbs. Therefore thumbs are an excellent indicator for what is happening in your mind. They reveal how you feel about doing things, like using your personal power to take charge and make things happen.
*Your thumb angle will change as your attitude about doing things and exercising leadership changes from moment to moment.
*Over time your thumbs are shaped by your consistent subconscious attitude about doing things, getting results, and succeeding. If your thumbs are strong, that indicates you can take care of yourself and get the results desired.
*When the index finger is longer than the ring finger that is an additional indicator of strong leadership.

I took a thumb angle test and here are MY results:
Your medium thumb angle reveals that you are balanced, confident and self-reliant. You work well both alone and with others. It is not necessary to be a "take charge" person who dominates all the activities of others around you. You can take the leadership role if necessary but being the leader is not your goal. Your satisfaction comes from getting results, no matter how they are achieved or who gets the credit.

You are not overly mental about what you are going to do, so you don't waste a lot of time doing unnecessary planning. You do things when the time is right for you. You seldom need help but if you do, you accept it graciously.

If you have friends with a small angled thumb, they may seem to be a little slower getting started doing things than you. No problem, you generally call on your own inner leadership and jump in to get them started. One of your virtues is that you are resourceful and can be depended on by others to take the leadership role when needed. You conserve your energy and resources until you need them and then you produce results that surprise others.

Hints for even more success in life:
Holding your thumb out at a big angle greatly helps to raise your energies for doing things. This is similar to throwing your shoulders back and expanding your chest when you are depressed. That change in body posture is opposite to the posture of a depressed person so the mind and the hormones it produces change to match the new body posture and you aren't so depressed. The same thing happens when holding your thumb out at a big angle. The mind and the hormones are revved up for action when the thumb is held out at a big angle!

(For women) Wearing a thumb ring, plus holding the thumb out, will give a subconscious boost for extra energy to get things done more effectively.

Why the sudden interest in thumbs, you ask? Well Saturday while I was avoiding snakes... I stabbed my thumb with some dried up vines from last year's Morning Glory. Needless to say, it still hurts. It is red, tender and a little swollen. So I have an appointment with my family doctor to check it out. I think there may still be a piece of something in there and I don't want it to get infected. Besides the obvious fact that I NEED my thumb, infections and pregnancy really don't work together. So I want to make sure it is taken care of NOW! No glory in the left over Morning Glory!
