Whichever you are most comfortable and accurate with. Try as many as your local shop(s) will allow and then decide, disregard innerweb advice on something like a release IMO.

I've used both styles in the past. The thing about the wrist release is the fact that you can attach it to the wrist or bow (when your finished hunting) . Lesser chance of climbing up in your stand and noticing that your thumb release never made it to the field and is still setting on the truck/utv seat or kitchen table. Regardless make sure you buy a back up release and keep it in your pack. If you choose a thumb type release buy at least three!!!!

With a thumb release don't you push it forward? Something about pulling back and pushing forward I can't grasp.

Back tension hand held releases are the only types that come to mind (no trigger) at all. But there may be a style that allows you to possibly fire the release via the thumb in the opposite direction .

The only reason that makes trigger punching a nasty habit is if you're punching it at the wrong time..

I never could make the switch to a t release . I tried but had a habit of releasing the release . That was caused from shooting fingers for so many years.

Ya. Punching with index or thumb, whats the difference?
Its a conscious think about it deal either way! Lookn at it, seems that that thumb would be less punching?
