    Default Your Hand Type and Dominant Element

    Here’s a gypsy parlor trick you can amaze your friends and relatives with. Also, it’s a great pick up opening at bars—I use it myself all the time.

    It’s a palmistry (chirognomy) system that attempts to link your element with your hand type. I’ll assume all you personality geeks already know the general characteristics associated with the four elements at least as good as I do.

    Air: square (short) palm, long fingers
    Water: rectangular (long) palm, long fingers
    Fire: rectangular palm, short fingers
    Earth: square palm, short fingers

    Lol I don't think this will impress many people. Likely to do the opposite actually. More so considering there isn't any correlation between these.

    Wait was phrenology not good enough for you?

    Careful. You tend to be called "ignorant" here if you make fun of/don't believe phrenology.

    I am pretty ignorant. I'd be ok with it.

    I became a phrenology proponent when I noticed that INTPs have bigger heads. Seriously, if this worries you, I wonder how you feel about the popularity of visual typing?

    About the same as I feel about the popularity of Selena Gomez, honestly.



    So why do you think hand shape is connected to elements? What's the correlation and why would they be correlated?

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    There's no science to support palmistry. Trust me, I have very large bump on my forehead that suggests I have a highly logical mind.

    I believe essentially that divination methods can sometimes provide a rough map, and work along the lines of Jung’s synchronicity (meaningful patterns), but are not totally reliable. It was really meant to be a fun thread, not taken that seriously--yet I end up being seen as a phrenology advocate!

    In your case, the flippers could be very significant. If you posted a photo of them and your shaved head (for the phrenology reading), I could tell you things about yourself…
