One assumes that dictators are cruel and inhuman without a good side to them, but Colonel Gaddafi has some good personality traits.
His hand is one of the most powerful ones I have seen, showing a
forceful personality. His developed mounts, deep well-cut lines and strong thumb give him immense physical and mental energy and a clear purpose in life. And as oddly as it may sound, his purpose is not primarily a selfish one, seen by the setting of his thumb. Sure, he craves for power (shape of Jupiter finger), power being his driving force, but it's important to remember that he has a humanitarian side to him. He has a mission, a purpose in his leadership.
His Headline and Saturn line show his persistence, perseverance and concentrative ability. His thumb shows his reasoning ability and diplomacy. His head is always in the lead, despite a deep Heartline. This, in addition to his pragmatism (fingers and shape of hand) enable him to make hard, even ruthless decisions.
Gaddafi’s Mount of Mercury is well developed, and so is the finger. This gives him immense mental and physical agility, confirmed by the strength of all his lines and Mount of Venus. He is also fairly intuitive, and very clever indeed when it comes to handling people. His shrewdness, persuasiveness and manipulative ability is the strongest aspect of his character. He can put on an act easily, and fool people.
However, despite these qualities and a well-shaped Headline, Gaddafi cannot be considered intelligent in the true sense of the word. His hand is too fleshy and his fingers too thick to give him clarity of thinking. Also, the shape of his fingers betrays a love of physical comforts and an overpowering desire to lord it, be in the limelight, and control manipulate others (Jupiter and Mercury finger).
To make matters worse, all of Gaddaffi’s Mars Mounts are highly developed, giving him excessive aggressiveness and resistance. There is a streak of violence in his character. He is also not discouraged easily, he is a fighter. Mental strength by itself is a good character trait, but for someone like Gaddafi who likes power it is usually counter-productive. If Gaddafi’s schemes fall flat (he is a perennial schemer and planner) he is the kind who will dig his heels in. The stubbornness is enhanced and confirmed by his thumb, its shape and its phalanges. Arrogance and vanity are also shown on his hand.
In a nutshell, Gaddafi is a smart man with some good ideas, but he is not a strategist and thinker. Besides, he hates to take advise from others. Perhaps if he had been born and nurtured in a country with democratic traditions, his inherent despotic and aggressive nature might have softened and he would have made a decent leader.
