People from all around the world come in different shapes, colors, sizes, and backgrounds. That’s why no two people you’ll ever meet will have the same personality. That’s also what makes this world such an interesting and fascinating place to live in and explore.
If your ever need to make a quick assessment of the characteristics of the person in front of you, take a look at their fingers. I know it might sound weird, but trust me, it could help.
This is because the length of a person’s fingers, more specifically their ring and index fingers, could reveal a lot about them. It can be quite accurate in predicting one’s personality; you just might be surprised.
Take a look at your fingers and compare them to the following list for a fun way to learn more about yourself!
Is your ring finger longer than your index finger? Then you might be “The Charming but Pragmatic One”. People who have ring fingers that are taller than their index finger are quite often charming. Their charismatic nature causes people to be drawn to them from the beginning.
Scientists have discovered that people with longer ring fingers earn more than people with shorter ring fingers. They often tend to base their livelihoods in the fields of engineering and science, due to their practical and problem-solving nature.
Place an obstacle in front of them, and they’ll probably have it figured out within a few minutes!
2. The Confident One
Is your index finger taller than your ring finger? This might indicate that you are “The Confident One”. They are self-assured, strong individuals who do not back down once their minds are made up.
They are born to lead the pack. In sticky situations, they are quick on their toes and eager to guide the way. Resourceful, even-tempered, and confident, people look to them for the right answers. They are not the type of people who will take the first step when it comes to relationships, but they always accept and appreciate the attention they receive.
They are driven by their instincts and are not afraid to take risks and go all out. They work hard for what they want and do not tire until the goal is reached. Even then, they will always keep looking for more.
3. The Peacenik
If your fingers don’t match either of the above categories, then your ring and index fingers might be equal in height. If that’s the case, you would fall into the category of people referred to as “The Peacenik”.
This category of people like to avoid chaos in their lives. They are calm, composed, well-organized, and methodical in nature. They are well organized and try to get along with everybody.
They are also extremely reliable and trusted by their friends, family, and acquaintances due to their loyal and soothing nature. They also tend to avoid conflict and confrontation as much as they can, doing their best to get along with and accommodate to everyone else.
4. The Silent Achiever
Take a look at your pinky finger and compare it to your ring finger. If it is shorter than the first joint of your ring finger, then you are “the silent achiever”.
These kinds of people are generally shy and standoffish with those who they do not know. But even though it may take time for them to get close to someone, once they do, they are completely free and honest with them.
They are big dreamers, but their shyness often makes it hard for them to step out and make their voice heard. Still, if they put your heart to it, they will find a way to make it happen, even if it is in an unconventional method.
You do you, because you’re awesome!
5. The Balanced One
If your little finger reaches the first joint of the ring finger, then you are probably one of “the balanced ones”.
Just as their fingers are in balance, so is their personality. The balanced ones are usually known to be have a mellow and mild personality. They are the person people turn to in times of crisis, because of their calm and grounding nature.
This stoicism may come of to outsiders as cold or dispassionate, but those that are close to them know the warmth and kindness that lies inside.
6. The Passionate One
You have a long pinky if it reaches slightly above the line of the first joint in your ring finger. In this case, you are known to be the passionate one.
Every aspect of your life, be it personal or career-wise, is driven by the passion you hold for the subject and the people involved in it.
This is also what makes people drawn to them. They admire the drive in that the passionate one has, and the kindness and loyalty they show to, be it to the work at hand or to the people in their life. They love being the center of attention, because it gives them a chance to talk to people their goals and passions.
7. The Leader
If you’re one of the rare people in the world whose pinky finger extends up to the same length as their ring finger, then you are one of “the leaders”.
These type of people thrive in the face of pressure and change, unlike others who might break down. Not only do they manage to come out of such situations successful, they come out feeling even more energized!
Needless to say, leaders are also extremely ambitious. One of the things that helps to keep growing and become successful is their open-mindedness to listen to the opinion of others and learn new things. They are confident, but not egotistical.
8. The Obsessive One
Now we move on to the thumb; which is generally defined by the top two joints. If the top half is longer than the second half of your thumb, you probably fall into the category of “the obsessive one”.
That’s right, these kind of people generally tend to have a steel-like focus on whatever is the biggest part of their life. This helps them succeed at work, because when they become engrossed at work, they become workaholics.
And when the focus of their attention is a lover, they tend to shower undivided attention and affection on them. Some might find this intense focus a little overpowering but it makes others feel special, thereby strengthening the relationship. But one thing that these kind of people need to be wary about is that placing their sole focus on one thing can cause them to neglect other things in their life. Balance is the thing they find hardest to manage.
9. The Objective One
If the two halves of your thumb are in equal proportion, you are an “objective one”.These people are similar to the “balanced ones” who have the pinky finger lined with the top joint of their ring finger. In fact, you might have both at the same time!
These people are also calm in the face of a storm and tend to be extremely good at solving problems. They are objective, and do not let their emotions get ahead of themselves, making them the ideal person for crisis management.
On the other hand, dating and relationships don’t come as easy to them because they often approach everything objectively. It may make them seem disinterested, but they are really just trying stay calm. Once someone manages to break down their walls, they transform into a completely different person!
10. The Logical One
If the second half of your thumb is longer than the top half, then you are “logical one”. Their personality is more restrained, and they are an expert in bottling up their emotions.
They are generally a “half glass empty” person and tend to be wary of the people around them as they do not trust easily. Every decision they make is grounded in logic, and they tend to describe themselves as realists.
On the other hand, others tend to trust them easily. People are more likely to share important information with them because they are unlikely to tell others. But this may also take a toll on their love life, because their “logic” may lead them to make the wrong decisions as love and emotions aren’t usually very “logical”.
