The way our bodies develop is mostly dictated by our DNA and partly by the choices we make.
However, the choices we make, the way we behave and even our genetics are all linked together. In fact, our character develops as a result of all those factors.
So a lot of psychologists and doctors believe that a lot of times, certain character traits are linked to the shape of some of our body parts.
Chirognomy is the department of palmistry that interprets hand shape.
If you’ve got a square palm, you are a logical person who’s likely very good at math. You don’t pay too close attention to your intuition. You instead prefer to rely on concretes.
Got a rectangular palm? You’re more on the intuitive side of things. You solve problems by going with your gut, even if the facts might be pointing you in a totally different direction.
No, put the tape measure away. The absolute size of your hands is irrelevant here; what we’re looking for is the relative size!
Form a 45º angle with your left arm and elbow. Then, take your right hand and place your thumb on the inside of your elbow. Stretch your hand upwards towards your wrist. If you can reach it, you’ve got large hands. If not, you and I are in the same small-handed boat.
If you’ve got small hands, you’re likely a risk taker with an adventurous and free spirit.
Although that might land you in rough water at times, your problem-solving skills help get you back to shore.
When it comes to relationships, yours tend to lean towards the dramatic side of things.
If you’ve got large hands, you’re likely a perfectionist.
You concentrate on the little details of projects and don’t mind pushing against deadlines a bit if it means getting things done right.
Large hands also mean that you’re a bit more sensitive, especially to criticism.
