The structure of the hands varies from person to person. Thus the structural difference determines difference in the behavioral aspects of human character. The wrist joined the hand to the arm. The forepart of the wrist is called 'palm'. According to the science of Palmistry there are five kinds of hands: - very small hand, small hand, ordinary hand, long hand, very long hand.
The kind of hand can be judged from its formation. The formation of hand can be understood , when the hand is placed in a special position by reversing the palm facing towards the ground. However the temperamental and the other aspect about the person can only be known from the methodical and proper study of the hand, the respective person is having.
Among the five kinds of hands, the first one according to the palmist is very small hand. The persons with very small hand represented a narrow minded and suspicious nature. They remained obsessed about their personal gains and even go on quarrelling for the pursuit of petty gains. By nature those people s having very small hand are very selfish. Their own narrow and selfish ends receive top priority. Cheating , Cunningness and Opportunism are the three basic part of their personality. Cunningness, being the basic nature of their personality, they always aim to bring people down in the eyes of others. They are generally harsh and unfriendly to others. Since their sole aim was the pacification of their own selfish ends, they always exploit others. Bereft of public responsibility, these people having very small hand do not contribute anything to the society.
In the second category, the palmists have placed those people having small hand. The people having small kind of hand, according to the palmist are generally lazy. Emotions and imagination generally guide their way of living. Generally the people of small hands have high dreams. They nurture the idea of doing much, most of which was the fruit of their lofty imagination. But at the same time their utter idleness prevented them to materialize their imagination into reality. As a result a result of their idleness they can never put their plans into practical use. They are fond of false and exaggerated talks and appreciation. The people having small hands love to dwell in the false but colorful atmosphere around them. They also indulge in creating such atmosphere around them. Hence they act in such a manner that this illusory and suspicious environment prevails around them. Although they have sharp brains ,they are likely to be ignorant that how to make use of opportunities. Consequently they repent when the time has passed and they could not make best use of it. Although becoming competent and able enough to do something worthy , they do not generally make much progress in life.
The palmists have categorized the ordinary hand as the third kind of in the science of palmistry. The people having ordinary hands are full of practical wisdom and astute insight. Due to the exceptional insight they know how to talk with people and how to behave with person. Highly social, such people have all these points in their mind. Ready wit is another key feature of these people. Since they have the capability of storing all points in their mind, they also carry practical wisdom while dealing with other persons. They are highly responsible and get appropriate respect in society. Being wise and insightful, these people give proper thought and time to every thing before doing it. However their lives are full of struggle and hindrances. But they are able to achieve success. Generally they also develop the habit to overcome the obstructions and hindrances. They also managed to gather facilities from the struggles. In general their health remains good, all the same. One of the significant characteristic of the people of ordinary hand is that they are very much adaptive. They have the capacity to mould themselves according to conditions prevalent. Hence they never face obstructions and hindrance owing to the their fault or idleness. It is the situations and circumstances which bring obstacles in their way but they are very much able to overcome this.
The long hands comprise the fourth category in the different kinds of hands, according to the palmists. People having long hands are highly responsible and prove generally useful to the society. The basic trait of their character is that their personality represented that they are neither very happy nor are full of anxiety. Though this basic trait clearly indicates their confusion, they are however very practical in their dealings with others. In spite of their confusion they are clever and promising . Their fundamental nature is to delve deep into the bottom of any problem placed before them. But their finding and conclusion they make in this connection generally is found to be completely correct in the end. Their estimation regarding any unknown person, his character, his efficiency and the way of his working etc generally turn out to be entirely correct in future. It has been opined by the palmists that theses people are highly important in the society for the purposes of collective interest.
Finally the palmists placed the people having very long hand in the fifth category. Persons having very long hands are not of any special use to the society. They are highly emotional and hence like to live in the imaginary world. Since they dwell in the imaginary world, when it breaks, they faces obstacles in the real world. Hence they get perturbed when they face struggles and when they are placed in such situations which they are not accustomed with. Unlike the person having ordinary hand, these people are not strong or competent enough to fight out the obstacles or hindrances coming by their way.
Apart from the structural and behavioral difference between the persons of different kinds of hands, there are some other facts, which should also be considered important. The palmists have opined that the formation of hand also worthy enough to consider along with the structure of hand. According to the difference of form the hand can be broad or narrow or can be hard or soft. Similarly, there are some people , whose hands appear moist , when it is touched and some hands appear dry in the same way. It is necessary for a palmist to consider with equal importance all these facts. The shape of the fingertips is one of the deeming features, a palmist should consider. Whether the shape of the tips of figures is pointed or circular or flat is of much importance. The knots between the one and the other phalange should also be studied. These knots can be thick or thin.
Similarly the length of each finger has its own importance. The palmists have opined that if the upper portion of the little finger projects beyond the third phalange, he proves to be very famous. Moreover these people are very wise and learned person. They are also capable to attain some high position by their own talent and efficiency. On the contrary people having too long little finger succeed well in the life. Hence, it has been surmised by the eminent palmists that it is not only the structural kind of hands, but also the formation of hands and fingers should be given worth importance in order to make a proper judgment.
