    Thumbs up A dumb little experiment

    Cross your fingers as if you were holding your own hand, or praying.

    Okay. Which thumb is on the outside? Is it the thumb of your dominant hand, or non-dominant?

    Now switch hand positions. Which thumb is on the outside now, dominant or non-dominant? Does this feel okay, or does it feel bad/uncomfortable?

    (If there are any ambidextrous people here, does both ways feel okay, or does one feel more right than the other?)

    If you know (don't go grabbing someone to experiment), when you hold hands with someone else, does your thumb go on the outside or inside? Is it dependent of which hand you're holding (your left their right vs your right their left)?

    my mind goes to weird places and this just made me curious, so let's see what you all say

    My answers:
    My dominant hand is outside. Switching hands to non-dominant on outside feels very gross and like my fingers don't fit right together. When holding hands (my left/his right) I'm on the inside. When holding hands (my right/his left) I'm on the inside.

    First up: wtf is up with this place's editing feature. It made me delete my post because I was trying to edit. This forum is broken.

    Okay, anyway, my non-dominant hand was on the outside and switching it felt awkward and a bit uncomfortable. Not sure if that has to do with me being a lefty.

    As far as holding hands, I don't know, but I imagine it would have to be somewhat dependent on the other person as well.

    Re: Hands: Dominant, switching doesn't feel right, not sure on the holding hands thing and am at work so I can't verify. Pretty sure it depends on who is leading who, as the person on the "front" (leader) should having their wrist further forward. I suspect I'm dominant outside when holding hands and doing nothing / idly walking.

    Non-dominant is outside (Iím right-handed), switching around feels weird. When holding hands (my right, her left), my thumb is outside

    I've not been allowed to edit my posts on my phone for a while now. At the top, delete is always pre selected and it'll ask for a reason to delete so I just leave my typos alone now. I forget which theme I use. it's a simple mobile one that has avatars for posts

    Yeah. That's what happened. It's fine on the computer, but it just auto-deletes on the phone.

    I don't cross either thumb: they sit comfortably against each other. If I have to cross them, then non-dominant thumb on outside feels most natural.

    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.

    I more or less fall into the ambidextrous category. Mostly write with my right hand, though, for the purposes of this experience. Left thumb naturally sits on the outside. Switching feels a bit strange, but it's not unbearable or anything. Mostly it's odd because of the broken finger, though. Makes it sit even more awkwardly than usual.

    my dominant hand (righty) would usually be the thumb on top, but a few years ago I would purposely switch hands to get the other side of my body to be more comfortable in foreign positions.
    same thing with crossing your arms. which hand ends up tucked underneath the other arm?

    Is this some sort of trendy sex move?
