straight, plump and flexible fingers with square tips, a very large thumb with a well-developed and supple top phalange, and good knots on the back of the hands.
Unfortunately, the headline on his hand is not visible and therefore one has to rely solely on the shape of the hands and fingers to get a glimpse into his personality. It was disappointing to be unable to check the headline on the hands of an intellectual.
Oddly enough, the shape of his hands and fingers does not show him to be an intellectual. What it does show is
that Paulo Coelho is a highly imaginative, intelligent, and creative man who is quick thinking and impulsive and likes the good life. His creativity is of the practical, not intellectual or esoteric type. His hands reveal him to be a person with pragmatic views who is guided by the head and someone who is far from religious or superstitious.

There is a melancholy side to the personality and some love of money is evident. However, without seeing his headline I cannot confirm this aspect.
There is considerable organization of thought and thinking ability and these qualities would go to make him a good author.
His strong willpower cannot be called a flaw in his personality, but at times this dogged determination can become a fault as it could turn him into someone who is stubborn and a bully. This trait, along with Coelho’s pragmatic and no-nonsense nature, could result in his rubbing people the wrong way. However, he has the best of intentions, and genuine warmth and liking for people. He is a straightforward man with an affectionate and forgiving nature.
If I had not known who this hand belonged to, I would not have been able to guess that it belonged to a famous writer or intellectual. I would have thought that it belonged to a successful man but could not have guessed the field in which success was achieved. I would have ruled out business success as the requisite skills are not shown. What I would have known is that this is a creative man, quick-thinking, mentally organised, and determined.
(Paulo Coelho is a Brazilian writer)
