The Elementary Hand

Fig. 4

There are two more types usually described, but the foregoing will perhaps suffice. However, on reflection, it may be as well to mention the Elementary `and the Mixed’ Hands, as they are termed, though there cannot be only one type of Mixed Hand.

The Elementary Hand (Fig. 4) is short-fingered, thick, with a heavy palm. Idiots have short fingers, large palms, and very unsatisfactory headlines (with other signs). The common Elementary Hand shows little or indistinct fateline and appears given to materialism. There is not much imagination in it, but the ball of the thumb is developed and the thumb thick. Mercenary soldiers have such hands, they fight for pay and not for patrie and are easily drilled, because they are machines-only breaking out when their low vices tempt them. The short thumb turns back, the palm is broad and hard and thick.

Sometimes one may find most of the characteristics of the Elementary Hand connected with a somewhat conic fingertip. Under these circumstances, as refinement or education is hardly to be expected, we may assume an imaginative vein, a romantic tinge in the mind. This vein will probably crop out in superstition and in the development of Ghost-stories, and curious accountants of battles, accidents. This `poetic’ vein is not in its proper place, and the possessor is likely to relinquish the struggle with the world and die a pauper without mental or pecuniary resources, unless a liking for music brings solace.

The Mixed Hand

The Mixed Hand (Fig. 5) is a very common object in Palmistry and combines in its various forms the good and evil of the types already described. The square finger with the conic tip is one form and is a diplomatic hand-upon the other developments will depend the uses made of this talent for throwing dust in people’s eyes. The owner is not good at one particular employment; he is general, full of general information, and yields to circumstances.

The “Elementary” may mingle with the Artistic, and indicate carelessness which declines to interest itself with others. The spatulate and the square are a good blend, method and regularity, and so on. We must consider the attributes of both types exhibited, or there ma be three-and then deduce our verdict from the fining down of one or the other to a common measure, as it were.

The Philosophic Hand

The Philosophic or knotted type of hand (Fig. 6) is easily recognized by the projecting joints of the fingers and the rounded tips, the sides being squared for order, and the thumb somewhat large, the upper phalange being almost, if not quite, the same length as the lower on the first finger will be perceived a prominence outwardly of the top most joint. This is known as the philosophic knot, and indicates a desire for information, an inquirer. The second phalanges are long, as reason predominates, deduction, analysis, calculation, are shown. The somewhat conic tips give a tinge of art or poetry, love of the real and beautiful. They question even the Bible, and are skeptical on many subjects unless their reason is satisfied. So they are scientific, independent thinkers, and express themselves clearly and with exactness, plainly and without redundancy.

Such hands give their possessors a well-balanced mind, for they look at the sides, independence and a moderation which are admirable. They are practical, not fanciful; reason rules them even in affection and they are unconventional. Such a knotted philosophic  hand with a small thumb will indicate obstinacy, and will lead the owner astray.

The Psychic Type

This is a charming hand (Fig. 7) to look at the admire, but it is not useful. The fingers are very conic, almost pointed, and the hand is small, delicate, smooth, and tapering. The upper phalanges are long in proportion, the lowest (also in proportion) rather thickened. Idealism and love of ease are combined in them, and the beautiful, the ethereal; the imaginative side of existence is theirs. Romance, luxury, “orientalise,” want to order, are characteristics, and such people do not reason much, they accept fate as it comes, but they are enthusiastic, nervous, and poetic. The development of the joints gives invention but no performance. In extreme form it is rare-a fortunate thing, as it is an impractical hand.
