The following personality sketch is founded on your hands

Composed by handanalyst: P.T. Barnum

The core of your handanalysis:

Both hands present you as an outgoing, optimistic and responsive person. In short, you are cordial, warm hearted, and friendly. Thus, you have a great need for other people to like you and admire you. However, your long index finger indicates your tendency to be critical of yourself.

The [... an applicable hand feature ...] shows that you have a clever mind, a sense of responsibility, and an appreciation for the finer things in life. You can be serious-minded and not inclined to make light of things even in little ways, and in your younger years you had more mature interests than others your age. You pride yourself on being an independent thinker and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof--you like to check things out for yourself, and if the subject is interesting enough you explore it further. You prefer your own ideas rather than others'. You have had the desire to accomplish something outstanding and to do something very worthwhile for humanity, especially early in your life. Thus, you sometimes exhibit a tendency to let your imagination run away with you into flights of fancy. Some of your aspirations tend to be pretty unrealistic.

The [... an applicable hand feature ...] usually indicates that you have a great deal of unused capacity that you have not used to your advantage. However, when you start a project you intend to finish it and stay with it to completion--a strong drive to keep moving toward a goal.

Nice [... an applicable hand feature ...]! Home and family mean a great deal to you and it is natural that you should desire the security of a peaceful, settled home environment where you can enjoy the companionship of family and friends. Whatever you set out to accomplish you do your very best to complete in accordance with what you consider to be right. In the home you assume your responsibilities capably, having the self-confidence to form your own opinions and make your own decisions. Others can rely on you; once you have given your word you will do your utmost to fulfil a responsibility. However, there is a tendency to be a little too independent in your thinking, sometimes, and so it may be difficult for you to accept the help of others when you should.

[... an applicable hand feature ...]: while you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them. Your sexual adjustment presented some problems for you when you were younger. Independent, disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing.

[... an applicable hand feature ...]: you prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You are a person who sees opportunities or plans decisive steps with an aptitude for initiating ideas and actions and proceeds with caution, yet you sometimes vacillate when coming to a final decision. And the dynamics in your minor lines indicate that at times you are extroverted, affable and sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary and reserved. You are often unduly conscious of yourself when being observed, and you can be shy in unfamiliar situations. You have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. Security is a major goal of yours.
