Did you know that the lines in your palm are actually somewhat of a ‘fossilized record,’ showcasing your early development? Seriously, researchers have actually found this.
Of course, that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. No doubt, you’re familiar with the idea of palm reading.
But there’s one aspect of palmistry you might not be so familiar with:
Hand shape reading.
That’s right; the lines on you palms aren’t the only hand features that can be used to determine your personality and temperament.
The shape of your palm and the length of your fingers say a lot too! There’s evidence to support this as well.
To make this concept easier to grasp, palmists have broken hand shapes into four types. Each type is linked to an element.
Let’s take a look at each type and learn what it all means!
Type #1 – Fire
‘Fire’ hands are characterized by large palms and short fingers. The shorter the fingers are, the more stubborn that individual is said to be.
Those with fire hands are go-getters and passionate, natural leaders. They make up their minds very quickly, which can be exactly what a team needs at times.
According to HandResearch.com, fire hands also signify an interest in socializing, entertaining and playing sports.
Type #2 – Earth
Those that belong in this group tend to have short fingers and square-shaped palms. They are generally known to be down-to-earth, are mild-mannered and practical. This helps them make friendships that last as they are seen as trustworthy and likeable. True to the name, they like being one with nature, preferring to spend their time outdoors, working with raw materials like wood and soil.
Type #3 – Air
People with this type of hand (square or rectangular palm with fingers equal in length to the palm) are often very smart and great communicators.
However, they can overthink simple things and sometimes have a hard time interacting with the world around them.
Type #4 – Water
If you have oblong palms paired with long fingers, you have water hands.
This indicates an imaginative person who has a fluid, flexible personality. People with this hand are also romantic and very sensitive, sometimes to a fault.
