The difference between THINK and KNOW is that THINK is one finger tapping the forehead once, KNOW is a modified B hand where the fingertips slightly tap the forehead.

Don't think

As there is a 'know' and a correlated 'don't know', is there a similar 'think' and 'don't think'?

think....don't think

Hello,

If you are referring to a "throwing away" action that would make the word 'think' a negative, NO.

There isn't a sign for think that goes that way.  To sign 'don't think', you would have to combine the signs DON'T and THINK.

Thanks!
