Of all the body parts that we regularly nourish and take care of, the thumb is probably one of the last on our minds, second only to, say, the big toe or the earlobe. It’s there, it’s useful, and it’s a huge part of our day, but our thumbs aren’t exactly vital life organs, or even beauty symbols that we must maintain. However, don’t dismiss your thumbs so easily — there might be more to them then you think. Many people believe that your physical attributes can represent your psychological and behavioral traits. This is what your thumb says about your personality!
Below, we look at the two different types of thumbs and examine what, if anything, they say about your personality. The long and short of it is that your thumb either bends or it doesn’t, and depending on what kind of thumb you have, you might be a certain kind of person. Skeptical? We were too. But take a look at the thumb personality outlines below, and just see if yours fits. You might be surprised to see how accurate it is. Thumbs?! We’ve all got ’em. So, which kind of thumb do you have? Prepared to be educated on a topic you never knew you always wanted to know, because this is pretty thumb-believable.

First, let’s talk about the overall structure of your hand. The bones on top of your fingers are called the phalanges, then there’s the metacarpals and the carpals. Clearly, your thumb is the shortest of the bunch. Some people have a straight thumb when they give a thumbs up. There’s no bend to the bones at all, and the thumb doesn’t even slightly retract backwards over the knuckle. You might not know it, but every time you shoot a “thumbs up” to someone, you’re letting them in on the type of personality you have. A big part of who you are is demonstrated in the type of thumb you have. This says something about your personality.
Which Type Is Yours?
There are two types of extreme shape of thumb fingers. From straight never bending thumb to crooked and flexible thumb. You can scale up to the level of intensity of your personality how it goes along with the exact shape of your thumb finger.
The Straight Thumb!
The straight thumb could mean that you’re a more serious person than most. Though you don’t show your excitability, it doesn’t mean you’re a downer. In fact, you might just have something to hide. A straight thumb tells us that the person might be thinking something but not saying it and a devilish face confirms that theory, in our expert thumb-pinions. In fact, you might just have something to hide. The thumb is as straight as they come, which totally fits the prescribed personality type: No nonsense, and rarely to give away a smile.

The Crooked Thumb!
Then there’s those of us who have a crooked thumb. It runs contrary to the straight thumb, meaning you’re more expressive than most if you have this type. Our thumbs bend backwards, sometimes quite far, so the phalange is basically perpendicular to the metacarpal. This is also known as the “hitchhiker’s thumb.” But what could the bend say about your personality? The curved thumb indicates that you’re more expressive than most.
You’re lively and are likely to be the life of the party, entertaining people wherever you go. Of course, there are exceptions to the rule. Having a curved thumb doesn’t mean you can’t be serious. You’re still capable of being serious, of course, but it’s not your default disposition.
And luckily, curved and straight thumbs can peacefully coexist. In fact, they tend to complement one another. And no matter what type of thumb you’re rocking, we’re sure you’re just great. After all, when it comes down to it, we are more than just a couple of thumbs — curved, straight, or otherwise. If life boiled down to simply that, it would be pretty thumb-fortunate. But just for fun, which type do you have? Are you the seriously straight-thumbed type, or the animated, curved, life of the thumb party? Check out those phalanges if your personality fits the mold.
Here are the few more thumb types in mid of the straight and crooked thumb that tells lot about your inner personality. Check it out further!
