Clasp your hands. Is your right thumb on top, or your left?

Right thumb on top.
Left thumb on top.
I don't think I believe this ....
I alternate top thumb.
None of the above

This came up in conversation this weekend. A relative is studying something about mannerisms, familial traits and genetic links. Like the ability to roll your tongue, double jointedness, dimples, connected ear lobes, etc....

Left thumb on top is supposed to indicate a logical thinker.
Right thumb on top suggests a more creative mind. What do you think about this?

Hand Clasping
Clasp your hands together (without thinking about it!). Most people place their left thumb on top of their right and this happens to be the dominant phenotype. Now, for fun, try clasping your hands so that the opposite thumb is on top. Feels strange and unnatural, doesn’t it?

    My left thumb is on top. I've heard this before, but forgot about it. It's an interesting theory.

    my right thumb is on top but I am not creative and my thinking is always very logical

    I find it saddening that so many people were mislead by chilton~T~. I don't know how he messed-up such a simple theory, but if he would have done some reseach before posting this article then he would know that: left thumb on top = creative mind; right thumb on top = logical thinker. Do some research, seriously!

    I find it hilarious how some people claim to be creative yet they are logical thinkers, and how others claim to be logical thinkers yet they are creative - again, all thanks to chilton.

    Give this comment a thumbs-up so everyone can see, and so that the guy who wrote this article will fix his mistake!

    I am not sure how correct this result is I often think of creative ways to accomplish tasks.

    5 days already? I'm losing all track of time...

    As much as I'd love to be that one in a high number the clasped hands I had in my mind were palm to palm, not interlaced like what's shown. I didn't even see the images you used until the Happening for your reply took me back here. I guess I blocked them out the first time..The theory still holds true. Left thumb on top. And I think of myself as being more logical than creative. :)

    Yep thats me logical thinker, but I create Beautiful gardens around my home too, I have an ear for music but cannot play an instrument, except drums a little. I cannot draw either. Maybe it's the Gemini in me a little of both worlds???
