Thumb flexibility: question for experts!

Thumb flexibility: question for experts!

Post  learner on Wed Oct 01, 2014 11:24 am

Hello all experts! I have a question.

Has anyone ever seen a supple thumb changing to a stiff thumb or other way around?
I am curious if this is possible over a few years.

Thank you all.
Learner

Thanks Lynn.

Can you give some detail? Would be great to kmow the circumstances and the period over which this happened.

If the person becomes more determined, assertive, willfull.
Usually the dominant hand can become stiffer whilst the inner tendency / natural instinctive reactions on passive hand stays more flexible.
I don't know a time scale, I think it's a gradual process.

Thanks Lynn. I was actually interested in knowing if you had come across a real case in your practice.

here's one example - me! Very Happy
I think it's very common for people to become less flexible with age - in mind and body and thumbs and fingers! many people get more set in our ways. less adaptable, less willing to over -compromise themselves or be taken advantage of etc.

Thanks. did you have a very supple thumb in your youth?
Over how many years would you estimate that this change took place?

I haven't examined palms of too many older people. Is it rare to find a supple thumb on senior citizens?

Yeah my thumb used to 'bend over backwards' when I first learnt palmistry. 25 years later it's still slightly flexible, not completely stiff,  but a much higher degree of resistance in aided flexure. It's also more tubular, it used to be slightly waisted. My fingers are much less flexible than they used to be. Look at how flexible babies and children's fingers & hands are, then compare to older people. (same with bodies) No it's not rare to find a supple thumb on senior citizens. I'm talking generally, many hands get stiffer as we get older.

Thank you Lynn. Your replies have cleared this issue in my mind.

I'm interested to know if other handreaders agree with me. Flexibility is difficult to measure, it's not like comparing an old hand print to see how lines have changed.

Yes, such variations are possible. However, I also support Lynn's point that it is actually hard to assess 'thumb flexibility' as their is no objective standard available. So basically any assessment could very well reflect the condition of the thumb at just one moment in time.

PS. In the fields of hand reading usually 'subjective' methods are being used where it is assessed according feeling how flexible the thumb is inplanted, but in science this feature usually gets defined in terms of extensibility (e.g. the amount of flexure), see for example: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1046/j.1365-2141.1998.00697.x/full

Thanks Martijn. The article talks of extreme flexibility in children. It would be interesting to know if any children have stiff thumbs. I think I am going to pester a few parents to let me examine their kids thumbs,
