Some personality characteristics have been associated with substance abusers, many of which (experts say) are inherited. I thought it would be interesting to see if Charlie Sheen’s hands showed any of these characteristics and whether they were inherited. According to research, these are some personality traits
often associated with addicts.
often associated with addicts.
- Sensation seeking, or wanting to try new experiences
- Hostility or aggressiveness
- Disinhibition (poor control over behavior)
- Low self-esteem
- Being very emotional or consistently having negative emotions
Charlie’s hands show significant differences between his left (click here for picture) and right (click here for picture) hands and this tells us that he’s changed, and unfortunately, his hands show that he changed for the worse. The most significant changes in Charlie Sheen’s hand in his Thumb, Headline and the finger of Jupiter. The Headline on his left passive hand may not show a high intelligence, but at least it shows clarity and common sense. On the right hand the Headline is not balanced and appears to deteriorate even further as he grows older. This type of Headline usually shows confused and illogical thinking which is confirmed by the thumb phalanges. His will phalange is far too long, but again this is not so on his left hand which means that this is not an inherited quality.
When it comes to the characteristics of an addictive personality (in the list above), Charlie Sheen’s hand show some evidence of low self-esteem on his left passive hand (Jupiter finger shape and setting) but this is not evident in his right active hand which means he is not like that today in a significant way. However, cautiousness and inner shyness can be seen (Head and Life Lines joined together considerably) in both the hands.
When it comes to “sensation seeking, or wanting to try new experiences”, Charlie Sheen’s hands do not show this particular quality, at least from what I can see from the shape of his hand and fingers. Perhaps this is evident in the lines, but I do not have a photo which shows this clearly. What Sheen's hands do show is a craving for attention (the shape of Jupiter and Apollo fingers on his right hand). Attention seeking behavior is something that developed due to an increased desire for control and the limelight. A good Headline can usually temper this quality and the right type of will can channel it into something productive, but this is not so in Charlie’s case.
When it comes to “impulsiveness,” Charlie Sheen’s hands do not show excessive impulsiveness (thumb shape). It is his faulty thinking that’s the problem. In fact, his hands show him to be a master manipulator! He plans and plots, and often what may across as “impulsive” could well be planned for some grandiose plan that he has in mind.
The “disinhibition (poor control over behavior)” is clearly shown by his Headline and the Thumb gives him the stubbornness to push through with the faulty actions.
“Negative emotions” or rather moodiness, is shown by his Saturn finger shape, and is compounded by the well developed Mount of Moon. This part of him is inherited. Emotions of melancholy are not a good combination with a latent inner diffidence (left over from childhood.)
And yes, Sheen is more than averagely aggressive (Mars mounts and big thumb) but this by itself is not bad. How this aggression is channeled is the key.
In conclusion one can say that while Charlie Sheen’s hands show some of the traits of an addictive personality, the most harmful traits are his difficulty with logical reasoning and also his stubborn will. Neither of these traits are inherited. There was something in his upbringing which made him like this.
