We communicate with each other in a wide variety of ways, many of which are nonverbal. A person's facial expressions and body language usually have more to say than the words coming out of their mouth. Small cues can reveal much about a person's state of mind and personality. Take the way you make a fist, for example.
Since there are a limited number of places that your thumb can go when you clench your fist, there are really only three different types of fist personalities. The test is simple: Just make a fist and look to see where you place your thumb. Is your thumb on the outside of your fingers, pointing up? Is it on the outside, laying across your other fingers? Or is it underneath all of your other fingers?
I was surprised to learn how accurate and spot on the description was for me. Read on to see how well it fits you.
If your thumb tends to sit next to your fingers without crossing them, it can mean that you have a strong imagination-but that can come at the expense of security and confidence. It also says you have strong intuition and use it to help people. You tend to help people even when it brings some inconvenience to you. You're constantly striving for new knowledge and experiences. You're extremely energetic and a little impatient.
People like you are often called adventurers and daredevils, but at the same time, many won't understand how often you feel nervous and how much you need help and protection sometimes. You need recognition and acceptance because you often meet people who use your kindness. However, your strong inner core doesn't let you give up on people. You can still continue to defend and protect those in need, but you may need become a bit more cautious.
If you place your thumb across the front of all of your fingers, you tend to have a deeply rooted belief in yourself. You're outgoing and attract a variety of people. Your friends love you for your sincerity and sharp mind. You're not cocky, you're just confident with a strong sense of self-esteem. You're diligent and prompt, and that makes you a good leader who is popular among your friends. However, your fear of failure often stops you from taking bold decisions as it can greatly hurt your feelings. You often need approval and praise.
Most importantly, never stop believing in yourself even when no one says how good you are. After all, it's possible that you just happened to be surrounded by people who are jealous of your success. Type Two personalities can get ahead-or into trouble-at home and at work for their honesty. As a straightforward individual, honesty is your way of saying that you have nothing to hide.
If you place your thumb under all four fingers, you tend to be more quiet and introspective than the other types. Because of this, some people may consider you taciturn and unwilling to communicate. You're thoughtful and pedantic and sometimes demand too much from yourself, leading to excess anxiety. You're a person with vision and strive for nothing to disturb your inner harmony.
Type Three personalities might seem like the shyer of the types, but they simply don't feel the need to broadcast every feeling or thought that they have, even though they may actually be going through a lot emotionally. This type also tends to be extremely kind and thoughtful when dealing with others, making them a pleasure to be around. Type Three people don't feel the need to have a million friends, as they prefer to stick with a handful of deep, solid friendships.
As I said in the introduction, I was amazed at how accurate the description was for me when I noted what type of fist I made. The test is based on an ancient Samurai method used to read personality types called Kobushi Shindan, which translates literally to "Fist Analysis." How accurate was the test for you?
