Wen Jiabao's hand analysis

Wen Jiabao, the Chinese Prime Minister, has a hand that shows a love for his country and also strong idealism. In fact, he can be almost obsessive when it comes to his beliefs, sticking to his ideas and beliefs even when it seems impractical. Not many modern politicians have this sign because modern politicians compromise at the drop of a hat. Jiabao, on the other hand, is driven by his ideals. It is very likely that in his heart of hearts, the reforms that China is undertaking do not
excite him as much as they did his predecessors. Besides, money means little to him. Whether it is making it or possessing it. He always puts his country first. He is unselfish.

He has a broad palm, medium length, slim and straight fingers, mounts which are not over-developed but sufficiently developed and a slightly low-set index (Jupiter) finger with almost a pointed tip. The lines on his palm are finely etched, well-spaced out, and the first phalanges good. Although the mounts on his palm are not very heavily developed, the Venus mount is good and to some extent, the mount of Moon. The thumb is long and its phalanges are well balanced.

He has a genuine warmth for people, a reasonable attitude and a lack of stubbornness. He is the type who would be willing to see another point of view as long as it does not directly clash with his principles. There have been accusations that his compassion for people is fake, but his hand shows that this is not true. Not only does he love people, but he also has genuine sympathy for the suffering, a humanitarian type of mindset.

Perhaps a weakness could be his idealism as it can affect one's executive ability. Plus, he is cautious, even hesitant when it comes to action, although he has independent views. However, he more than makes up for this lack with his power of expression and use of extravagant words. In this sense, he is a typical politician and perhaps this is why some people do not trust him. He is clever and shrewd.

He thinks quickly, and at times acts quickly, particularly when it comes to issues of less import or those that he feels will make him look good.

His mounts and fingers show that he is a calm person, not aggressive. However, he will not be easily persuaded by his pet beliefs. He has discipline and control.

He may not be that direct and in this sense is a typical politician. He enjoys the limelight and at times could overestimate himself. He could enjoy power and perhaps believes that there is nothing wrong with keeping the hot seat as long as he is the best for the job.

  1. Are the rules of the lines common across all cultures. Our thoughts and attitudes surface as lines on the hand from which a palmist will draw conclusions. Hence will an "indian" hand be different from say an "occidental or oriental" hand?

  2. Anil, sure, the rules of the lines are common across all cultures. But Indians hands are different from western hands as temperaments and talents tend to be different. It is temperament and talent that is shown on the hand.
    From my own experience of reading hands of famous people,if I take just people in the political arena, I find that politicians from western countries are far more straightforward, honest and upright than Indian politicians. However this does not mean that this is a difference in the western people and the indian people. Honest, upright and principled Indians are rarely found in politics.
