Michael Jordan – aggressive and talented

Michael Jordan Basket player graphic wearing red shirt
Michael Jordan, also known as MJ, is a self-made man and this is clearly evident on his hands, particularly in the lines of his palm. The differences between the two hands are fairly distinct, with the lines on his right, active hand being much longer. (The passive hand shows the subconscious/inherited personality traits and the active hand shows the current self). This shows that he enhanced his strengths to a considerable degree through focus and commitment.

However, although the lines on his left, passive palm are shorter, they seem to be of better quality. The fateline is also longer on the passive hand…that’s odd one would think as the fateline tends to be an indicator of success. There are likely reasons for this and when you read on, you will get some answers.

Jordan has big hands but considering his height, they are not too large. He has slim fingers with slim lower phalanges and a low-set thumb with a flexible top phalange. The first two phalanges of his fingers are long, and that of his thumb, are fairly well balanced. The thumb is a good length and held apart. The palm is broad and the lines seem clear enough. He has a long Mercury (little) finger on both hands and his Apollo (ring) finger is long too, although the Jupiter (index) finger is average in length and a little low-set.

Take a look at Michael Jordan's hands.

On closer inspection, one can see that the lines on his active hand, though dark, and longer than on his left, passive hand, are far from perfect. The headline is uneven in the first half, broken in parts, with bars and downward lines. The heartline could have been of better quality, although it is long and well-etched. It is uneven, and wavy, going across the hand, cutting through the Jupiter mount towards the edge of the hand, near the thumb. 

The mounts of Mars, Jupiter and Moon are the most developed on this hand. Lower Mars seems excessively developed, if one compares it to the other mounts on the hand and this is seen on both hands, passive and active.

Considering his fame and name, Jordan's right, active hand should have been better in most ways, but it isn't. Not really. Not only are the heart and headlines not as even as they are on his left, passive hand, the Fate or Saturn line definitely isn’t as good. Odd, isn't it! It's like his hand is telling us that Michael Jordan was fated to become a happier, and more self-fulfilled man if he had not become a famous basketball player. He might have a hard time agreeing for sure!

His hand shows that he made himself who he is, through discipline, hard work and talent and it is entirely to his own credit. Aggressiveness played a big part. His hand shows immense aggression and competitiveness – Jordan has the hand of a go-getter. People like him would never be satisfied with what they have and they don't give up. He was born that way. Regarding his personality, he had the competitiveness, risk-taking ability and immense drive to make it big. He had it from the start. He decided to channel it into basketball, and it worked. But he would have made himself a satisfactory and successful life anyway even if he had chosen another field. He could perhaps have had better can never know. 

To achieve the kind of success he did, he must have developed himself to a remarkable degree as his abilities were not innate. The thinking prowess that he developed, it's all his very own. Without this you cannot make it in any field...his intelligence and ability almost doubled…and this is rare. 

When one is so focused on developing oneself, improving in every way, it can cause stress and anxiety and it is likely this happened to Jordan. It also takes away time and energy from steadying one’s moral compass and can make people falter along the life path. When one is focused only on worldly success and fame everything else tends to fall out of focus. 

His hand also shows generosity and almost an uncanny understanding of people.

Park Eun-bin – why is she still single?

Park Eun-bin photograph
South Korean Park Eun-bin started off as a child actor and today is quite a well-known actress in Korea. She is over 30 years old and single, and has apparently never been in a serious relationship! She says she has never dated. Beautiful and talented, and yet, no time for romantic relationships? What do her hand say about this aspect of her personality?

She has a largish palm and the thumb is conic-tipped with a strong first phalange and slim second. The Mercury (pinky) and Jupiter (index) fingers are conic-tipped too. The thumb is held close to her hand but the Mercury finger is held a little apart and is also low-set. The Saturn (middle) finger seems a little bent as does the Jupiter finger although much less. Overall, the

Hands of Attention-Seekers - Uorfi, Rakhi, Donald, Charlie, Rahul and Kim!

Attention-seeking behaviour is known to have psychological causes, due to low self-esteem, jealousy or loneliness, or it can be a psychological condition. All of us know about attention-seeking celebrities and maybe some people in real life as well. Why do these people do what they do? Is it a part of some grand plan or is just what it is… a desperate desire to be the central attraction?

I have selected an odd bunch of people to write about, those who

The charismatic John F Kennedy

John F Kennedy graphic
President John F Kennedy was assassinated at 46 and ever since then, he has become a legend almost, as he impacted the minds of Americans in a way no President before him ever had or ever will. The famous words that inspired generations were: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” 

Can the hand reveal what was so special about JFK, besides his oratory? Does he deserve the reverence that he received from the American people or did he become a part of American folklore because of the tragic and senseless manner in which he died?

JFK has a good hand, and when compared to other great leaders, his hand seems a little different, and better. Of course, there can be varied opinions as to what constitutes a “better” hand, or rather, what the most desirable characteristics are in a leader. You can decide for yourself as you read on.

Jennifer Lawrence - Bright and sensitive!

Jennifer Lawrence wavingIt’s difficult to pin Jennifer Lawrence down or get her to reveal much about herself. Her hand tells us that she is a private person and a very sensitive one at that – sensitive with great sensitivity to the environment and people around her. No wonder she is such a good actor!

She was in the news because of leaked private photos of her (the guy who did that to her went to jail for just 18 months) and after seeing her hand one realises how upset and outraged she must have been. Anyone would be, but as Jennifer is more sensitive and delicate than most people, it would have been quite agonizing; something she’ll find difficult

Prince Harry – is he the better brother?

Prince Harry smiling
After Prince Harry called himself a “spare” he put into words something no prince before him ever had. What with his book and the tv series – Harry and Meghan – there has been more controversy about him than ever before. Despite the publicity that Prince Harry has generated, if news is to be believed, it’s his elder brother, Prince William, who is winning the PR war. But who is a better person – Harry or William?

Both have similar shaped palms, squarish, but the fingers are a little different, with Prince William’s fingers likely to be a little shorter and thicker. However, both have long

The hands of Gautam Adani

Gautam Adani businessman
According to Wikipedia, Gautam Adani is said to be the third richest man in the world, and Asia's richest. 

His personality has been described by many as visionary, risk-taking, hard-working, persuasive, and philanthropic. Needless to say, he also has a lot of business sense, otherwise, he wouldn’t be where he is today.

Does his hand corroborate these qualities in his character? If yes, what else does his hand tell us about his personality?

Rishi Sunak - a good Prime Minister or not?

There is no doubt that Rishi Sunak’s hands show that he is smart, sensible, emotionally stable and has common sense. He came to power as the Prime Minister of Britain in unusual circumstances, but now the question is whether he will do a good job and manage to steer Britain out of the problems it is in currently.

He is certainly capable of it, if one goes by his hands. He has a large hand with clear lines, the fingers are of medium length and held apart, and the palm is broad. He has rounded tips to his fingers and the first phalanges of the fingers are long, except on his Jupiter (index) finger. He does appear to have a slightly short Jupiter finger and the Mercury (little) finger is low-set although it is long. Although the mounts on his hand are developed, they are not excessively developed. The heart and head lines are balanced with each other, even if the headline is a little high and not absolutely straight. The head and life lines are joined with each other considerably before separating. 

Rishi Sunak has been compared to Barack Obama, and sure, there are some similarities in their hands in the sense that they both have large hands and clear lines. But the similarity ends there. In reality, they are both

Kartik Aaryan - is he the right fit for Bollywood?

Kartik Aaryan is a popular Bollywood star. He has made waves in more ways than one, but one should take these things with a pinch of salt as Bollywood has its own rules which a newcomer might find it difficult to navigate. Talent is the only thing that should count, and in the case of actors, looks and style as well. Apparently, Kartik has these three aspects in good measure…but does he have the right personality to make it in Bollywood?

His hand has a broad palm and fingers of a good length, which have a mix of conic and rounded tips. The Jupiter (index) finger is high-set, conic, and a little bent, but it is of normal length. The other fingers are of normal length as well, and not significantly bent. Kartik has a good thumb, it’s long with a conic tip. The lines on his palm are dark, possibly a little thick. 

The palm lines on Kartik Aaryan’s hand are intriguing as it is possible that he has two headlines.

Kylie Jenner – driven but delicate

Wikipedia describes Kylie Jenner as an “American media
personality, socialite, and businesswoman.” She is also the "second-most-followed person on Instagram". That’s pretty intense! 

Kylie gives the impression of being a strong, driven personality. However, while her hand shows her to be driven, it does not show her to be a strong person.

What is most striking about Kylie Jenner’s hand is that her palm lines are faint as compared to the size and shape of her hand. Her hand is slightly long, with a longish palm and fingers. The mounts on her hands are not very well developed, though the Jupiter and the Lower Moon mount are relatively better developed. Her fingers are slim, with pads on the tips (referred to as sensitive tips in palmistry), and the middle phalanges of her fingers are slim and waisted. The Jupiter (index) finger has a pronounced conic tip and could also well be a little shorter than normal. The first phalanges of Kylie’s fingers are long, particularly that of the Mercury (little) and Apollo (ring) fingers. The second phalanges of her finger are average, not significantly long. She has a slim, shapely thumb,

Britney Spears - level headed woman!

Britney Spears is written about endlessly and one can’t help but be curious about what her hand reveals about her personality. The media often gives the impression that Britney is vulnerable and weak, and not too sensible. But this characterisation is likely to be wrong as her hands do not show this. Britney's hands reveal a stable, sensible person. Why this contradiction between the Britney persona created by the media and the real Britney? That is a difficult question to answer but likely because the media loves writing about celebs this way.

Britney has a longish palm with fingers on the shorter side and her head and heart lines are clearly etched, although the headline shows a slight waviness. A few of her fingers appear bent, particularly the pinky which is also low-set. Her fingers are tapering at the end with a few sensitive pads. The thumb is quite good with a nice balance of the

Tom Hardy – Sensitive and Tough!

Tom Hardy’s personality, as shown on his hand, reveals deep-seated emotions; emotions he has likely suppressed. Perhaps acting helps release these pent-up emotions. There is a lot of energy which exudes from his hand, and this is not about physical energy, but mental. He feels very intensely about things and at times it can be hard for him to
