The Hand Analysis of Bill Gates

As you all know Bill Gates is not your average Joe. He was not born that way either. He was born gifted. Gifted with a fine brain plus the talent to make money. He didn't squander his inheritance. He developed all his inherent, character traits, and more. Some traits developed in him over the years because of the path he chose. The analysis of his hands reveals to us what Gates is all about.

Almost every sign in his hand tells us of his sense of balance. The shape of his hand tells us that he views things from a broad perspective. The way he holds his fingers and thumb emphasises this sense of balance and tells us that he does not hold extreme views. His excellent finger of Saturn, which is the balance wheel, tells us about his wisdom and prudence, as well as trustworthiness, strong focus, and dependability. The headline confirms the common sense that he has in plenty. And although he thinks brilliantly and independently,
his originality does not make him a maverick. When he takes decisions, he weighs the consequences, even if he goes against advise.

Bill's fingers are square-tipped, but the Jupiter (index) finger is conic and all the fingers have pronounced second phalanges – on both his hands. (The writing hand tell us of the current state of mind and the non-writing hand the past). A few third phalanges are also developed, particularly that of Mercury and Saturn. The Mercury (little) finger long as well, longer than it is for most people. The palm is broad, and the finger lengths and palm size are balanced with each other. Which means that his fingers are neither too long nor too short. He has a pronounced Apollo (ring) finger. The lines on his palm are well-etched, and he has a long thumb, which is a low-set and it also has a good balance of its first (Will) and second (Logic) phalange. The mounts on his hands are developed, particularly the Moon, Venus, Mars and Jupiter mounts.

A creative businessman
A combination of these hand features shows that Bill Gates enjoys creating, and also enjoys making money out of it. These seem to be inherited qualities. It doesn't matter which profession he had decided to follow, he would have minted money. He has astute business sense and shrewdness in the judgment and understanding of people and situations. Money and success are important to him and he has an economical mindset as well.

Is philanthropy shown on his hand?
Bill Gates is famous for his philanthropy. Surely this quality sits uneasily with such a hard-core businessman? Businessmen generally have a ruthless streak and do not get too involved in social causes. The answer is clearly etched on Gates' hands.

His hand shows a broad perspective on life to start with, telling us about a person who is not selfish and or narrow-minded. He can also be a bit impressionable and he is willing to absorb things from the outside world – different views, and different outlooks. This enables him to see things beyond himself. There is also idealism in his personality and a belief in a higher cause. This means that whatever talent he has, whatever job he does, he will be guided by the desire to make a difference. At the same time, he is not the type to shirt mundane tasks. 

He likes to make a splash, and do things that create an impact, and he enjoys fame and name. He tends to think big.

The qualities described above do not necessarily explain the depth of the charity work that he does. But his hand does. Bill Gates's hand shows compassion, generosity, sympathy, and a willingness to help others. While helpfulness is seen on both his hands, the other qualities are not present as strongly on the left hand which means they have been developed probably because of his inherent idealism, broadmindedness, intelligence, sensitivity, love for people and humanity, and one presumes because of his success. 

Other qualities
His optimism levels are high, maybe remarkable. His hand shows an agreeable, happy nature, although underneath this agreeableness and friendliness Bill Gates is determined, and likes to get his own way. His aggression levels are fairly high, and he has the ability to control and manipulate and also use his tact and fluency of expression to get his will done.

However, he does not possess the strong domineering and dogmatic streak that some successful people have. In fact, he tends to have a flexible will, and then there is his ability to be influenced, not just because he has a strong ability to reason, but because he will not let his ego get in the way.

If one has to sum up, one can say that Bill Gates has one of the best hands out there. It is not often that one comes across such enormous talent, as well as someone who is a balanced and decent human being.

His hand appears to show some health problems, at least in the past, although it's difficult to be sure without studying the lines on the palm closely.

  1. is there anything about him dropping out of college?

  2. Vishesh, if you mean the degrees he actually managed to get, or how much he studied, this is not possible to see from the hand. What is shown however is studiousness, which means the ability to read and analyse and think, then he has this in plenty, shown very clearly on his hand. Such people often study a great deal, but it is a personality trait that is shown, not the degree. But if you take Gates' other qualities like original thinking, independence of action, ver strong aggression, desire to make money, desire to create, as well as a certain idealism it seems understandable that he became impatient with getting degrees.
    Palmistry is an art, it is about combining the various personality traits and trying to see how an individual will behave. In Bill Gates case, we already know he dropped out (but he was a brilliant student by the way, always) to start a company of his own, but it would be difficult indeed to predict such an outcome from looking at his personality traits. What one would certainly be able to say, without knowing his background, is that this man will carve out his own path.

  3. thanks for the clarification..I can understand the degree part...god it's so boring ;)

  4. what does influence lines mean , mine is going from my life line , cutting fate line , as i have double fate kine ,it cuts both and make a square with them at the end. i think around the age of 45 to 50 .i am 36 right now and happily married.

  5. Anonymous, you say your influence line is going from your life life and cutting the fate line, but unless I am sure it is what you say it is, I cannot comment. One of the most difficult things in palmistry is recognizing the lines for what they are. Chance lines are often mistaken for Influence lines. As for double fate line, it may not be one at all, it could be a parallel influence line or a double life line. Squares are difficult to recognize as what you say could be a meeting of chance lines. Also some lines by themselves have no particular meaning, it depends where the lines are and what their strength is. Palmistry is all about recognizing lines for what they are. Only an experienced palmist can decide what your lines actually are and therefore it is impossible for me to answer your questions unless I see your hand.

  9. The narrow, long palm with long fingers is a Water hand. It is also referred to as the feeling hand often leading to insanity, visions of grandeur. The water type has extended palms and long fingers; the hand regularly appears very narrow overall. The fingers are lean with conic or pointed tips. The hands feel soft and kind of damp.
