The thumb has always been given a very special importance in palmistry because it represents the entire palm and is directly connected with the brain of the person.
That is the reason why thumb is considered as an excellent measure to determine the person’s character or personality and how he or she is making use of one’s inherent talents and abilities.
Thumb-King of all fingers

Indeed,the thumb is known as the king of all the fingers where it is equivalent to four fingers found on the hand and only humans has got the luxury of having the thumb on their hands to give the easy grip or hold of the objects.
Phalanges of the Thumb
Like all fingers,thumb is also divided into three phalanges.
The first section comprising the thumb nail represents the person’s willpower and determination to move ahead in one’s life,second section represents logical and reasoning abilities of the person and the third section comprises of the mount of Venus which denotes how the person expresses his or her passion, love and sympathy towards others.
The person needs to have balance of all the above qualities to become highly successful and wealthy in one’s life.While determining the personality of the person using one’s thumb,mount of Venus is often neglected and focus is there only on the first two phalanges of the thumb which provides great insights in determining the self-control and character of the person.
With the excess or deficit of one of the two upper phalanges, different personalities gets emerged.
