Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
There are lots of theories about what this kind of thing might mean but as far as I know there is no conclusive answer- as it sounds like you're finding in your research. There are some Eastern theories suggesting that when the left thumb is over the right that the "female" aspect of your personality (the creative, nurturing) is more dominant in your personality (this is why in some yoga or meditation practices one is asked to consciously place one's hands this way).
Alternatively, there are some theories that suggest that whichever side is on top indicates the more dominant influence of brain hemisphere (it sounds like you've read some about this). So, for you, it would mean that your right brain (expressed through the left side of your body) would be more prominent as a determinant of your thoughts, feelings, behavior, etc.
Again, these are some of the theories that I've read, but as far as I know there is no conclusive answer to the question you're asking.
There is nothing wrong with it unless it is causing you significant distress. There is no data to suggest that clasping your hands one way versus another is better or worse in any way. Therefore, unless you're really bothered by it, I would try to just let your hands do what they naturally do; if it really bothers you than you can certainly consciously choose to fold them differently.
I don't know statistics on how common it is to fold your non-dominant thumb over the dominant one.
IT DOESNT MATTER IN ANY WAY WHETHER U CLASP UR HANDS WITH RIGHT THUMP UP OR WITH LEFT THUMB UP.
BOTH ARE NORMAL AND VARIES FROM PERSON TO PERSON WHETHER THEY R RIGHT HANDED OR LEFT HANDED.
U CAN DO IT EITHER WAY U LIKE .
ITS NOT GOING TO AFFECT UR BRAINS FUNCTIONALITY OR UR PERFORMANCE IN WORK.
WHAT I AM FEELING IS THAT UR SYMPTOMS ARE POINTING TOWARDS OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER.
IT CAN BE MADE CLEAR IF U ASK SOME OF MY QUESTIONS-----
IS YOUR MIND REMAIN ENGAGED IN THIS THOUGHT .......MOST OF TIME THAT U TEND TO WASTE LOT OF TIME OVER THIS THOUGHT
HAS IT START AFFECTING UR PERFORMANCE AT WORK OR HOME...
IS THERE ALSO DIFFICULTY IN CONCENTRATING , DUE TO REPEAT BANGING OF THIS THOUGHT,
R U ALSO EXPERIENCING CHANGE IN UR SLEEP,
ANY HISTORY OF FREQUENT HEADACHES.
DO U KNOW SOMEWHERE IN UR MIND THAT THIS THOUGHT IS USELESS.......BUT STILL U R UNABLE TO STOP UR MIND FROM THINKING ON THIS ISSUE.........
IF U TRY TO STOP UR MIND FROM THIS-----THEN THERE IS FEELING OF RESTLESSNESS, DISCOMFORT ----
PLEASE ANSWER THEM SO I CAN CONCLUDE THE DIAGNOSIS AND CAN SUGGEST U SOMETHING.
THANKS AND GOOD DAY
