Our body language is a window into our soul. While it's not an exact science, a body language expert is likely going to be able to tell what you are thinking after studying your gestures. After all, communication is verbal and non-verbal. But we don't need to study body language to know if someone is lying to us or is in earnest. For instance, a married couple likely knows each others' tells. Parents are also likely great at reading their children's body language.
There are also ways to get better at reading our own body language, to figure out what is on our minds. This is a great life hack in times of crisis or confusion. If you have a dilemma about something, your body language might reveal to you what you truly want. One of the ways of knowing ourselves better is to see how we cross our fingers.
There are three ways in which people cross their fingers. In the first instance, the right thumb is on top. In the second, both thumbs are aligned and in the third, the left thumb is on top. How do you cross your fingers?
Try to cross your fingers without being conscious about it to check what your usual way is. Now, that you know how you cross your fingers, here is what it says about your personality and romantic life.
If you prefer keeping your right thumb on top of the left one, then you are possibly a highly emotional person. You are able to gauge what others around you are feeling and know their mind before they speak. You are also in tune with your own feelings, which is a great way to continue growing as a person. Other people probably open up to you easily and come to you when they want a shoulder to lean on.
This ability makes you see the bigger picture easily and you are able to provide a unique point of view to others. You are likely a warm person and others are drawn to you. This also makes you a great partner as you are able to understand your partner's needs easily. You are able to be there for them as much as possible. However, don't forget to take care of your own needs, which can easily happen in your case.
If both of your thumbs align equally when you cross your fingers, you are likely a perfectionist. You have a sharp eye for details and are confident in your abilities. You also provide great advice to people and are likely an incredible leader. This doesn't mean that you boss others around but you seek their feedback and try to make the best decision possible for everyone. You are not someone who leads from the sidelines and probably are ready to get your hands dirty.
Your partner probably looks at you to make the big decisions in life and supports you through it. If not, your opinion is always taken into account as you have great insights to share. However, this doesn't mean that you are serious all the time. You might like to be organized but you also like to let your hair down. Being responsible might come instinctually to you, but make sure that you don't take up more than your share of the work. Whether it's home or outside, ask for help when required. A great leader knows when to delegate
If your left thumb goes on top of the right one when you cross your fingers, you are likely a down-to-earth and practical person. You are measured and balanced in your decision-making and don't let your emotions get the best of you. People come to you when they need advice on important matters, whether it's their family, work, or anything else. You probably weigh the pros and cons before giving anyone your opinion and know when to keep it to yourself as well.
As a partner, you are level-headed and rational, which is great during conflicts and crises. You are able to stay calm and support your family or friends in their times of need. They see a great friend and partner in you. However, don't forget to let loose from time to time as it is easy to get bogged down by life's responsibilities.
