Every day we learn something new about ourselves. Kay Packard, head of American Academy of Hand Analysis, is sure that our palms can say lots of things about us — and it’s not something esoteric. The Academy experts came to the conclusion that each finger has its own particular meaning.
1. Determine your strong hand
This is simple: you’re either right- or left-handed. Your lead hand’s palm and fingers reflect your business and personal qualities, while the fingers on your other hand tell about your attitude to your close ones.
2. Determine your strong and weak fingers
Every person has strong and weak fingers, and the stronger some of them are, the more expressed are certain traits of your character. If a finger is bent, leaning to another one or forward, or can’t do certain things, it’s weak. If a finger is long and straight, then it’s strong.
- A strong thumb on your lead hand says that you’re striving for success in your profession.
- A strong index finger tells about your interest in power, strength of character, and shrewdness.
- The middle finger is your responsibility, efficiency, confidence, growth, and wisdom.
- Your ring finger is your artistry and self-expression.
- The little finger depicts your communicative skills.
Example: If you have a strong thumb and middle finger on your lead hand, then you’re probably an efficient, responsible, and professional person who is not about to fulfill only his or her ambitions.
3. Note the shape of your fingertips
- A round shape speaks of your wish to be at peace with others and your fear of disapproval.
- Square and flat fingertips mean that you’re precise and dislike uncertainty.
- Shovel-shaped, broad tips tell all about your favor of ingenuity and dislike of beaten paths.
- A sharp shape says that you like quitting practical activities in favor of unusual and esoteric ones.
4. Look at the gaps between your fingers
Place your hands on a flat surface or hold them in front of you comfortably.
If your fingers are wide apart from each other, you’re probably independent and fond of experiments.
If your fingers are closely set, you are prudent, careful, and possibly self-contained.
If your ring and middle fingers are apart, you’re hard to influence. If they are close to each other, you tend to live up to social expectations and follow the rules.
Look at the distance between your ring and little finger. If the gap is wide, then you tend to avoid serious talks and decisions, which has an impact on both your work and home relationships. If it is average (compare with a friend’s hand), you are probably an independent thinker with a flair of adventurousness about you.
