Hand Charts for
Neuroticism vs. Emotional Stabiliy!

Neuroticism 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 Neuroticism are more likely than the average to experience such feelings as: anxiety, hostility, depression, self-consciousness, impulsiveness & vulnerability to stress.

Prevalence: approximately 1 in 4 people are high scorers for 'neuroticism' (emotional instable) and versus 1 in 4 people are low scorers, which represents 'emotional stability' (emotional stable); additionally, 2 in 4 people score between 'neuroticism' & 'emotional stability' (emotional variable).

The hand charts below describe how the Big Five personality dimension Neuroticism correlates significantly with the 3 major palmar lines, the dermatoglyphics, and the pinky finger.


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.

Other significant hand signs (not reported inside the hand charts):

Various studies have reported weak positive correlations between the Big Five dimension Neuroticism and the 2d:4d finger ratio, especially in females (sources: C. Sindermann et. al, 2016, Y. Uddin & J. Gray, 2013).

One study has indicated that the Big Five dimension Neuroticism has a strong negative correlation with 'hand flux' + a small negative correlation with 'hand distance' (source: G. Luck et al., 2010).


All significant hand signs listed above for the Big Five personality dimension Neuroticism together cover four out of the nine perspectives of the hand as defined according Multi-Perspective Hand Reading (including hand level 1, 5, 8 & 9).

A summary of the most significant hand sign combinations in the Big Five dimension Neuroticism is described here:
