Putting fingers in the mouth

Ever noticed someone placing their fingers in their mouth? It is shown to be a sign of being under pressure or looking for reassurance or confirmation. The action stems back to when as a child we look for security in mother's breast and as we grow older we substitute the breast for a thumb. Showing confirmation and reassurance will often result in the ending of the fingers in the mouth.
