Let me know if you get 100% on the first go, it took me 2 tries to get there.

That's your self-defense mod kicking in...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Never was good at that.

You should go get a nice lympho-massage for your arms... be careful about the knives staying retracted though

I wonder if there is a synovial massage available.

Start one first,

then the other. Get your rhythm down with one hand, then start the other. This also works with patting your head while rubbing your belly.

Does that work with eights?

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Start one first,

If you're the type that finds it easy, then maybe eights is within your reach... for me the eights invariably turn to parallel movements after one or two... fun while it lasts though.

Beats me

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Does that work with eight ...

I can't do the eights with both hands / fingers just going in the same direction. I wind up moving my fingers up and down; the horizontal motion gets dampened out after a few repetitions.

I can twiddle my thumbs in either direction, though. Does that count? How about crossing my fingers with the ring finger and pinkie? On either hand? Oh, and I can roll just the tip of my tongue, while the rest of it stays unrolled.

Crossing fingers

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Does that work with eight ...

I can cross, on either hand, index+middle and ring+pinky, all four pairs at once - is that what you mean?
Roll the tongue... how do you mean, fold the tip backwards, or form into a tube, or turn the tip in one direction until upside down? Or something else entirely?

Yeah, Palmie?

by Tigger_Two In reply to Does that work with eight ...

I can walk and chew gum at the VERY SAME TIME!!! How about that?!?!?!?!

I can also hyperflex the fingers of both hands. And touch my thumb to the inside of my wrist.

I can also tell people to "live long and prosper". Just sayin...

I think that some of the movement association things are highly dependent on how one uses their hands. I was a sign language interpreter so am accustomed to moving my hands in a variety of ways that are not associated with how I would speak. ASL doesn't use spoken language structure, it signs key concepts and qualifiers as needed. That said, it took me three tries to "tune" my brain to see colors and not words in the test.

I can cross all four fingers at the same time. I can also stand on the tips of my toes. Ballet will do that to a person.

Yeah, four pairs like you described. Just for giggles, I paused while typing this to try crossing middle + ring; I can do that on each hand too.

I originally meant rolling the tip into a tube, but your prompts reminded me I can fold it back too. I've found neither to be of any use in those activities where one might hope they would.

Oh it has it's uses... *nudge* *nudge*

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Does that work with eight ...

Specifically, a flexible tongue correllates with healthier teeth, all things being equal.

I can't cross middle and ring fingers, I can get one on top of the other, but that's as far as it goes, and I can feel that pain all the way up to my elbow :)

Tig, hypermobility? Good kind or bad kind?
