FINGERS CROSSED CONFUSION

CROSSING YOUR FINGERS 

     Some people cross their fingers for good luck, and also cross their fingers to negate a lie. This was something that naturally caught my attention!

     A superstitious gesture used to promote good luck, is also used to protect/defend statements and actions of deceit***

***A person can cross their fingers for “GOOD LUCK” or use it to protect them while telling a lie!!….

They believe that lying with their “fingers crossed” protects them from the responsibility or liability to that lie.

HOW CAN A GESTURE BE USED IN BOTH A POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE WAY BY THE SAME PERSON?

SAME PERSON IS WHAT MAKES IT PROBLEMATIC. It is easy understandable that gestures have different meaning through different cultures religions and whatever. But, for this superstitious gesture to have “selective” meaning used by the same person is very interesting lol

GET IT?????
