Under the Thumb Of Life & Death
A woman had symptoms of arthritis (attachment, a centrifugal syndrome).
She tended to tuck her left thumb under her fingers, and her left leg was stiff.

If he keeps the thumb sheltered by the other four fingers, it denotes a retrogression to babyhood. He imitates the baby’s position. With it, he shows a desire for protection and a dependence on other people. It is a favorite gesture of the escapist, the resigned person who has ‘given up’ and wants to return to the safety of the womb. There is more to this gesture than mere shyness, cautiousness and anxiety, though all of that is in it, too. Should there be other indications in the hand pointing toward a melancholy, depressed disposition, this thumb position would weigh heavily in the analysis. The nail joint of the hidden thumb may sometimes peep through the index and middle finger when the hand makes a fist. As a habitual gesture, it adds to the qualities of the hidden thumb position a high degree of anxiety and suggests a suspicious nature.”
