Good evening, thank you for the bet at HealthReplies.com. According to WHO or the World Health Organization, disability is a broad term that includes disabilities, limited activities and barriers to participation. The abnormality in question is a problem in a certain body function or body structure; activity limitations are difficulties by an individual in carrying out and undergoing certain activities; as well as barriers to participation means barriers for certain people to be directly involved in daily situations, such as bathing, wearing clothes, exercising properly or deciding whether or not they are good.
In Indonesia, the definition of disability is also stated in Law Number 8 of 2016 concerning persons with disabilities, which we quote without amendment and reads:
Persons with Disabilities are every person who experiences physical, intellectual, mental, and / or sensory limitations for a long period of time who in interacting with the environment may experience obstacles and difficulties to participate fully and effectively with other citizens based on equal rights.
In your condition, on the one hand you do have physical limitations because in normal people, the total number of fingers should be 10. However, on the other hand, you state that you do not experience obstacles and difficulties in doing work and daily activities. In our opinion, what happened to you can still be called a disability or not depending on which definition is held. When referring to WHO, all it takes is that you have a structural abnormality, and that's what happens to you. But when referring to the law, apart from structural abnormalities or physical limitations, it must also interfere with your daily activities, in which case you state that you are not disturbed.
So in conclusion, we don't think we have the right to determine whether you are a disabled person or not, especially because this relates to applying for a job that we do not know whether to require complete fingers or not, for example typing. Our advice, you should ask directly to the organizers by submitting your case to avoid misunderstanding, because they must have their own guidelines which are considered defective and not. So, hopefully it answers your question.
