Fingers are amenable to the following characteristics:

  •      Forefinger helps identify a person's character.
  •      Medium tells a lot, which is due to fate (and not depends on the person), in other          words,it means a fatality.
  •      Untitled indicates monetary wealth, or that a person can succeed in art.
  •      Fifth finger, called the pinky or little, evidence of human occupation of intellectual          work, in particular science and commerce.
Each of these fingers, as is known, consists of three phalanges.
In ancient times, scholars, drawing on their knowledge of the age-old observation, not without reason, each of the three phalanges given characteristic, corresponding to reality.
For example, 
  • The first (the nails) phalanx give an idea of ​​the highest spiritual principle of man.

Ending with a description of your fingers, I should tell more briefly some very important information.Everyone knows that the fingers of children and the fair sex often looks smooth, exactly (have a smooth appearance) (Fig. 8).

On the basis of elementary logic can assert that every human-century with smooth fingers more sensitive subject instincts.

Older people often fingers are gnarled. These people have great experiences, many argue, thoroughly analyze the case of life or essence of things. Hence, we can judge every person (even if not old) with knotty fingers (Fig. 9), arguing that a person with a strong intellect, refined personality, not so fast treatable feelings and instincts.

 A few more words about the nodes.

Fig. 9, I draw your attention to two points a and b. Node and is called philosophical "demonstrates consistency, the ability to analyze. Node b indicates that the well-being in cases underlines pedantry.

These features are deepening by examining the form of phalanges, located near the nail.

It may be square in shape (Fig. 11) and in this case means the order of the plan, the ability to anticipate, balance, symmetry.
This phalanx may be even spade (Fig. 12) and characterizes a person related to things from a utilitarian point of view and tends to benefit from everywhere. These people excel in crafts, engineering and applied sciences.
