According to the ancient art of hand reading, the shape of your palms and length of your fingers reveal unique character traits symbolized by the four elements. Read on to find the best description of your hands and to learn the secrets you hold!
Hands Personality Air
Square Palms and Long Fingers: You're an intellectual AIR hand.
Deeply curious, you’re a lifelong learner and an eloquent communicator, observes Ellen Goldberg, author of The Art and Science of Hand Reading ($25.10, Amazon). In fact, she says, your “air” hands are so named because the things you love best — ideas and knowledge — are intangible. Notes Goldberg, “It’s as if your long fingers are grasping for new information while your sturdy, square palms hold on to it.”
Hands Personality Fire
Rectangular Palms and Short Fingers: You're a self-assured FIRE hand.
Symbolic of passion and energy, the element that correlates with the shape of your hands captures your indomitable spirit, reveals Dennis Fairchild, author of Palm Reading. “You exude a spark of charm and confidence,” he says. A natural leader, you inspire others to ignite their own fiery drive and be their very best.
Hands Personality Water
Rectangular Palms and Long Fingers: You're an intuitive WATER hand.
As gentle as a raindrop, as formidable as a tidal wave, water is arguably the most versatile element and an apt reflection of the force of nature that is your creativity. “Sensitive and empathetic, you have an artistic eye and a vast imagination that flows out of you,” declares Goldberg. Indeed, like water itself, you’re capable of shaping the world around you.
Hands Personality Earth
Square Palms and Short Fingers: You're a trustworthy EARTH hand.
Practical and hardworking, you relish rolling up your sleeves, be it to plant gorgeous flowers or whip up a batch of cute cupcakes. Your hands also hint at your steadfast nature, says Goldberg, who notes that earth palms tend to have fewer lines — a sign of dependability.
