How to Read Finger Palmistry in Physiognomy

Examining the fingers is a crucial step in the process of palmistry, typically following the analysis of the palm.

Fingers vary in length and thickness, and can be smooth or knobby.

First, let’s discuss length. To measure the length of a finger, it should be extended horizontally, forming a 90-degree angle with the palm, with the distance from the fingertip to the base of the finger considered as the length. If measured while stretched out, the palm appears longer than the fingers for most people. However, with the correct measurement technique, fingers are generally longer than the palm for most individuals.

Fingers represent thought, while palms represent action. Longer fingers indicate a propensity for thought, whereas longer palms suggest a predisposition for action. Chinese palmistry emphasizes the importance of longer fingers. Fingers are likened to dragons and palms to tigers; the ideal is for the “dragon” to swallow the “tiger,” not vice versa. This preference originates from ancient China’s agrarian society, where most people’s palms (tigers) dominated their fingers (dragons), suggesting action over thought. Those with longer fingers, indicative of greater ideation, often achieved higher social status. In contemporary society, the preference leans towards fingers dominating over palms.

The length of fingers matters; longer fingers are associated with higher intellect, while shorter fingers suggest a less reflective nature.

Smoothness in fingers refers to the joints rather than the skin. Fingers are considered smooth if the joints do not protrude, indicating rapid knowledge absorption but also quick forgetting. Knobby fingers, with prominent joints, signify slower learning but deeper understanding and retention.

Thickness of fingers distinguishes between thinkers (thin fingers) and doers (thick fingers), with stronger individuals typically having thicker fingers.

In palmistry, each finger and its segments have distinct meanings. For a comprehensive understanding, it’s important to explore the specific implications of each finger and their nails.

To dive deeper into the significance of individual fingers and their nails in palmistry, the following resources are recommended:
