Hand Charts for
Extraversion vs. Introversion!

Extraversion is a fundamental personality trait in the study of psychology and is recognized as one of the Big Five personality dimensions. Individuals who score high on Extraversion are more likely to show behaviors associated with: warmth, gregariousness, assertiveness, activity, excitement seeking & positive emotion.

Prevalence: approximately 1 in 4 people are high scorers for 'extraversion' (extraverts) and 1 in 4 people are low scorers, which represents 'introversion' (introverts); additionally, 1 in 2 people score between 'extraversion' & 'introversion', which represents 'ambiversion' (ambiverts).

The hand charts below describe how the Big Five personality dimension Extraversion correlates significantly with finger length, palm shape, the 3 major palmar creases & the dermatoglyphics.


NOTICE: Individual hand features described below should not get associated in isolation with any theme; only combinations involving multiple hand levels have potential for diagnostic purposes.
