Palmistry

A :

This type, which is most frequently seen, indicates a decided char­acter, firm and stable, though not very obstinate.

Q :

What are the characteristics of a Spatulate thumb?

A :

The possessor of a Spatulate thumb would have a will so strong that nothing would serve to change his mind when once made up, for he would be absolutely obstinate even to his own hurt. If the thumb turns outward he will be generous, though im­pulsive in his generosity.

Palmistry
Q :

What is indicated by a poorhj developed thumb?

Inability to manage one's own affairs, no will power or reason. A person led by impulse, one who is like a feather blown hither and thither by every little gust of wind, dogma, or creed

Q :

How long ought the thumb to be?

In a proper development the thumb will reach to the Second joint of the First finger (that joint which joins the Second to the Third phalange) when the thumb is laid straight in a line with the front of the finger: according as it varies from this point so will the intellect and will of the person be inferior or superior.

Palmistry
Q :

What part does the thumb play in revealing character?

A :

It plays a most important part, and is called the Emperor of the hand, for without it we should be at a loss how to handle the many different tools which we use. In fact a well devel­oped thumb always accompanies an intellectual character.

Q :

What is meant by the words "First", "Second'.and "Third" phalanges of the thumb?

A :

The First phalange of the thumb is that part on which the nail grows, and it extends to the First joint; the Second phalange reaches to the Second joint; and the Third phalange, or base of the thumb reaches to the wrist, but owing to the important part which the inner base of the thumb plays in Chiromancy, it is not dealt with here and therefore the term "Third phalange" is intended to mean the outer part of the base of the thumb.

Palmistry
Q :

How is the thumb dealt with in chirognomy?

A :

First, it is divided into three parts, corresponding with the three worlds. The top part or nail phalange represents the will, or the Divine part of the nature: the Second phalange re­presents the logic, or the Intellectual part: and the Third phalange, or base, represents the passions or the Animal part of our nature, and according to the different developments of these different parts so will the character be.

Q :

Is a moderately developed palm best?

A :

Yes, for when it is thus, the intellect is good and keen and the subject capable of carrying out his ideas in an intellectual manner.
