Tiger Woods hands reveal why he was unfaithful to his wife

The world is talking about star golfer Tiger Woods' infidelity, wondering why he was so bent on destroying his idyllic life by having one affair after another. What do his hands reveal? Do they explain the mystery of why he sabotaged his marriage and career?

I don't go by the idea that infidelity is "normal" for celebrities. Infidelity is an individual thing. When a person cheats on one's partner, it shows certain aspects of his/her character, whether he is a star or whether he is a person on the street. Rich people, however, do seem to get more opportunities.

When it comes to infidelity there are certain factors which come into play. Firstly one’s values, secondly one’s
sex drive, thirdly one’s self-control and fourthly whether one is selfish and self-serving, and lastly one’s love for one’s spouse – not necessarily in that order. Oh yes, there is also one more thing. Anyone who betrays his partner and is not in an "open" marriage, will find it difficult to keep it a secret. People who manage to keep their affairs hidden from a partner are fairly devious. Honest and straightforward people would find it difficult to keep their infidelity a secret from the person they live with, a person whom they possibly love.

Where does Tiger Woods stand on these qualities? What do his hands tell us?

His thumb and his headline shows that
Tiger has above average willpower.  He has a long tapering and supple thumb with a good balance of both phalanges, and a sloping, but clear and stable headline. A good sized palm and medium length fingers show a balance between the palm and the fingers. The fingers are mostly straight although the Mercury (little) finger appears to be bent and the thumb could well be high-set. The lines are clear, and he has a long curved heartline. The mounts of Moon and Venus are developed.

That Tiger Woods has willpower is not surprising, as successful people generally have that. A strong will can, however, be used for both good and bad. So by itself will power tells us nothing much.

You can check out his hand photographs here and here.

The fleshy hand indicates passion and from other signs too it is quite clear that
Tiger Woods is far from heartless, even if he is a little selfish. He is a warm, passionate man. One assumes that this means that he must be the kind who believes in fidelity and love and marriage. Maybe he does, he is too impressionable to be able to stick to his promises.

The impressionability, impossible idealism, impulsivity and love of beauty can be his undoing. He would tend to be taken up with the superficial aspect of things. In fact his thumb is so pointed and so supple that one would assume that it would belong to a long and/or conic tipped hand, but Tiger’s hand is not like that. The very fact that he has this type of thumb on an otherwise practical hand, increases its significance.

Each sign has to be read in conjunction with the shape of the hand as well as other signs. A conic thumb on a hand such as his is unusual, and therefore it enhances its reading. It is this sign which is his Achilles Heel.

He also is highly individualistic, does not care about formality or the consequences and he is also quite secretive. This means that he likes to do exactly what he wants and will ensure that he keeps it hidden, because he is well aware that it is wrong. And then there is the tendency to be selfish.

Sweet talk and diplomacy and charm are a part and parcel of his personality and this will enable him to keep his secrets safe.

  1. Suppose you didn't know that Tiger Woods had had an affair, could you predict it?

  2. I would have said that this person could been drawn or tempted but whether he actually would I could not say. If I had to give him his hand reading in private I would warn him to beware of this. Hrithik's hand has a sign such as this, but his thumb is not so conic, Hrithik is not so sensual or with a such a high sex drive. Hrithik would therefore be more mentally swayed, while Tiger Woods would be swayed because of the physical thing.

  3. I guess when you are a celeb, your person characteristics are judged...and well second fellow from that gillete ad in trouble :P who's next I wonder

  4. yeah thats the price you pay for fame! Look at all the famous people I have analysed on this blog! Their private selves are on display here!

  5. Simply Awesome! It is a rare gift which you have honed to perfection. I wish you all the success in the world dear schoolmate!!

  6. Thanks for this fascinating analysis. I certainly hope he is thical enough to truly regret the damage he has done to the bond of trust between him and his wife, and make the required changes so he can establish that bond with her again.

  7. I think he does have good intentions, but the question is for how long.

  8. Thats interesting !!I am really impressed that you could analyse soo well from the pic here...

    when would we girls have a chance of letting our palm read ? ;)

  9. Thanks. And I am starting from January! :)

  10. hiya! what a great blog you have here!! so talented :)
    how would you consider reading Robert Pattinson's hands for us? :D


  11. Hullo there dunya. Thanks. :)
    And yeah sure can read Pattinson's hands. When I read your comment I drew a blank on his name but then I searched to see if I could get photographs of his hand on the internet. And I did found a few, not too many, but I am sure there are more as he seems to be a real hot star! It would be interesting to read his hand, and I will give it a shot!

  12. in tigers case also the heart line ends up below saturn finger making him shelfish i think

  13. As I mentioned in my answer to your previous comment, the heartline ending on or under saturn does not mean selfish. Character traits are seen on different parts of the hand, and several signs need to be examined before one can come to a conclusion. The traits are enhanced or reduced by different signs.
    Also, no one sign can be used to dub a person selfish.
    In any case the Heartline refers to a person's affections, and his emotional life, and thus selfishness as a character trait in general cannot be seen on the heartline.
    Yes, at times coldness can be seen on the heartline, if the line is very thin, weak and short (not reaching even the bottom of the saturn mount) but this has to be confirmed by the shape and size of the other mounts, particularly Venus, Mars and Jupiter.
    And most important, on Tiger Woods hand the heartline is strong, sweeping up in a curve to a place inbetween the first two fingers. It is not ending on Saturn.
