Stiff Thumb Meaning in Palmistry

The stiff thumb has a great significance in reading hands; you can glance at a person’s hand and quickly get a general idea of their energy, drive, and basic temperament. So the thumb is a crucial part of character awareness, particularly in situations where one is meeting someone for the first time because, in most business or personal situations, people shake hands to introduce themselves. What a perfect opportunity to glance at the thumb!

As with most features, finding balance in proportion to itself and how it appears to look on the hand is ideal. Nothing too crude and nothing too small. In general, a small thumb belongs to the day-dreamer; one set at the base of the hand belongs to the hands of a worker; an extended thumb indicates the strength of character and intelligence. The thumb is an excellent aspect in which to attain clues confirming other characteristics found on the hands.


Rigid (Stiff Thumb)

A rigid, straight or stiff thumb is when the top joint does not bend back away from the hand. It reveals someone with a persistent, disciplined nature with fixed attitudes. These people are stubborn but determined and not likely to fuss or worry too much; although they lack spontaneity.

The positive aspect of the stiff thumb is that it mainly belongs to somebody with solid reasoning, and so prefer to negotiate situations through actual evidence.

Remember to check if the thumb on a narrow or wide angle, as this connotation varies by either type. A close angle with rigid thumb belongs to someone who is not only set in their ways but selfish and closed minded as well. A wide-angle naturally lessens the negative trait, giving a much more open nature.

  • These people like to be in control but may try to dominate someone with a flexible thumb.
  • They have a skill for concentration.
  • Most are reliable and responsible.
  • They have strong opinions and are straight to the point.
  • If with rough skin, they are unsympathetic.
