Palm Reading Perspectives

Multi-Perspective Palm Reading: About Hands & how to make a Hand-Diagnosis

Hand signs for Extraversion / Introversion!

with 3 comments


A new study (2012) shows that the hands of ‘extroverts’ tend to vary signficantly from the hands of ‘introverts’. Those scoring high for Extraversion appear to have short fingers, a wider palm shape, and the ulnar (pinky) side of the hand appears to be more well developed. While introverts tend to have longer fingers, a narrower palm shape, and the radial (thumb) side of the hand tends to be more well developed.

The study also points out that it is quite impossible to recognize personality traits from just one hand characteristics: combining characteristics (in multiple hand dimensions) is essentail!
