Variations on the Finger Pull Empowering Tool
The process is exactly the same if you grasp two or more fingers or if you use any other finger. Some people like to use different fingers for testing different things. Others use one finger until it gets tired and then use another finger. Some people always grasp with their left or right hand. Others grasp with either hand or change back and forth.
Quite a few people with average sized hands tend to prefer using the two finger pull technique with their pointer and middle finger. The technique is the same. Some people prefer using three fingers with their pointed, middle and ring fingers.
Others prefer using their pointer and middle fingers with their thumb. Using this technique usually works better if you bring the tips of your thumb and fingers together. Overall the one or two finger pull method is preferred by most people.
About sixteen out of one hundred people (16%) obtain reversed answers. That is, their grasp remains strong for negative responses and weak for positive ones.
If you are one of these people, you will easily pull your finger out of the grasp of your other hand whenever the answer is right, true, yes or positive. Your grasp will remain strong for answers that are false, untrue, wrong or no.
About four out of one hundred people go weak when they are feeling poorly whether the answer is true or false, right or wrong, yes or no, positive or negative. This is one reason we always suggest you test yourself first.
