According to a report in the Independent, "Your appearance can reveal things about your health, such as your likelihood of developing certain diseases." And another report in Discover Magazine said, "Researchers have discovered that a quick study of the hands — more specifically, the lengths of the index and ring fingers — can tell a lot about a person’s personality and risk of disease." This implies that there is a strong connection between our personalities and our physical features. The size/length of your fingers, hence, when compared with your palms, also reveals a lot about you.
Before we delve into the details, look at the image presented below, and find out which particular case is true for you.
Now read on to find out what it reveals about you:
If your fingers and your palm are of equal length then you belong to a very rare group of people who are level-headed by their very nature. You are the kind of person who is inherently driven towards creating balance and you believe in the magical harmony of equilibrium. You are someone who is calm and composed even during the most difficult of times and you are the kind of person one looks to for sane advice.
On the other hand, having a rational, calm mind takes a lot out of you as well. It drains you emotionally to always think in terms of fairness and logic. You are the kind of person who would rather get hurt than compromise on your humanity. Emotionally, you are extremely complicated but you never show it to others. You are like a duck in a pond, calm on the outside but paddling vigorously on the inside to keep everything on an even keel. You are phenomenal!
If your fingers are longer than your palms then you are the kind of person whose proverbial reach is longer and the kind who punches above their weight. You are someone who is self-driven, someone who firmly believes in their own capabilities and is ready to give their all to pursue their dreams. You are the kind of person who goes the extra mile just to prove, to themselves, that you have what it takes to succeed. You are one of the rare personalities who is self-motivated and your ambitions are the ones that fuel your life.
On the other hand, you are also the one who has sacrificed a lot in your life for your dreams. You have let go of things that you may never get back because you were driven to achieve what you pursued. Your single-minded approach towards excellence also means that you miss out on certain things in life but the fact is that the achievement of your goals is the true purpose of your life and you don't stop until you have it. You are an inspiration!
If your fingers are shorter than your palm then you are the kind of person who doesn't believe in rushing through life for the heck of it. You are someone who cherishes life, who values the beauty of each passing moment, and someone who likes to live in the here and now. You are one of the very few people who understand that not everything in life is measured in terms of money and fame but, in fact, most of life's beauty can only be measured in experiences.
You are the kind of person who stops to smell the flowers. You are someone who thinks intensely and feels deeply. Your laughter is brighter than the sun but your wounds are deeper still. It takes a lot of courage to be the kind of person you are but this is what makes you so incredibly strong. You are the kind of person who is beautiful, just the way you are.
