A ‘Hand Model’ for recognizing Extraverts & Introverts!

with one comment

Hand model for recognizing Extraversion (extraverts) & Introversion (introverts).

The large majority of people (80%) can best be described displaying a mixture of ‘extravert’ and ‘introvert’ behaviors. However, about 10% of people tend to show consistent ‘extravert’ behavior (and a likewise percentage show ‘introvert’ behavior). Can the tendency towards extraversion and introversion be recognized from the hands of an individual?

A Dutch study (some results have already been reported in earlier posts) suggests the answer is: yes!

The picture above displays a ‘Hand Model for Extraversion’, which results from a multi-perspective hand study including 27 extraverts and 21 introverts (all Dutch citizens). The results e.g. point out:

“A discriminative analysis has pointed out that the ‘Hand Model for Extraversion’ can identify 85.4% of the subjects (41 out of 48) correctly as a HIGH of LOW scorer.”

Surprizing results?

Various earlier studies have reported results that now appear to make sense in the perspective of this new ‘Hand Model for Extraversion’:

– Sheldon’s ‘ectotonic’ somatotype is associated with introversion  (a summary is presented HERE)

– Low 2D:4D digit ratio has been associated with extraversion & sensation seeking (conflicting results have been reported over the years)

– Simian crease has been associated with introversion (more details HERE)
