6 Hand signs for Extraversion / Introversion!

Post  Martijn (admin) on Fri Oct 12, 2012 12:14 pm



Multi-Perspective Palm Reading has entered now the field of psychology as well!

In (academic) personality psychology is the trait of 'Extraversion - Introversion' being recognized as a key-dimension in the field of personality psychology. But the term 'extraversion' became also became a popular feature in daily life to describe the personality of an individual.

This article presents a brand new model for recognizing the hand of an 'extravert' (= a person who scores high for the Big Five personality dimension 'extraversion') via 13 6 aspects of the hand (related to three hand dimensons).

Guidelines are also presented for recognizing the hand of an 'introvert' (a person who scores low for the Big Five personality dimension 'extraversion'):

http://www.handresearch.com/diagnostics/extraversion-ambiversion-introversion-hand-signs.htm

The article e.g. also presents an overview of guidelines that have been presented by various hand reading authors (including: Arnold Holtzman, Johnny Fincham & Nathaniel Altman) for assessing extraversion/introversion via the hand.


NOTICE: I would advice to ignore the far less detailed results (for the female sample only) reported in this preceeding article.

Hmmm ... scratch ... I just tallied up my scores for both sides and seem to come out as extrovert (total score of 2.2). Maybe I made a mistake - MBTI type tests all put me squarely into the introvert box, and that's also what my self-understanding is.
Has anyone else here added up their score?
Thanks!

hi kiwi, I haven't added up my score, still studying the picture & info.
Broad palms surprises me - broad palm + short fingers = earth handshape, which I'd expect more likely to be introverts.

Hi,
How about point # 8, related to joining of head and life line?
The model says - if they are joined then it shows extroversion and vice-versa.

Very interesting dude Matrtijn. Life line and head line joined, Developed mount of moon are signs of extrovert. You always come with interesting funny items. Keep it up and enlighten all palmists.

Interesting points guys. In the article, Martijn quotes other authors ideas -

Johnny Fincham: 'Palmistry: From Apprentice to Pro in Twenty-Four Hours':
• page 198 - INTROVERT: head line: tied to vitality line;
EXTRAVERT: '...... large gap between head line and life line.

Arnold Holtzman:- 'Applied Hand Reading':
• page 68/69 - EXTRAVERSION: flattened lower part of hypothenar (mount of moon);
• page 69 - INTROVERSION: swelled lower hypothenar (mount of moon) and dropping into the wrist.

Hi Kiwihands,

Thanks for presenting your assessment. By the way, my study is focussed on the hands of high- and low scorers for Extraversion - which implicates that there is an intermediate (normal) group as well.

Regarding the MBTI, one should be aware that by principle it does not identify any intermediate group - because every gets classified as an E or I. So, even while you always score an I... that does not exclude the possibility to that you might not belong to the low scorers on the Extraversion dimension in the Big Five model.

By the way, have you ever shared your hands at this forum?


PS. Sorry, without seeing an impression of your hands it would be quite impossible for me to help you find out whether you have managed to apply my quidelines correctly (but don\'t worry, I have planned to share many more details at a later stage).

Hi Lynn,

First of all, none of the extraverts in my sample have an Earth handshape. If that would have been the case I would have probably talked about a very broad hand... so, where I talk about a broad palm (relative to palm length & finger length) you can associate that with dimensions that are actually more typical for a fire hand shape (in the perspective of finger length to palm breadth) or air hand shape (in the perspective of palm breadth to palm length).

But I can also inform you that I have not found any significant differences regarding finger length to palm length... and for this reason I would not recommend to associate my results directly with any of the 4 palm shapes.

Nevertheless, I can add that in the studied sample:
- 71% of the Introverts have a Water- or Water(+Fire) hand shape for at least one of their hands (compared to 15% of the Extraverts)
- 45% of the Extaverts have a Fire- or Fire(+Water) hand shape for at least one of their hands (compared to 14% of the Introverts).

Interesting?

(Please be aware that these observations origin directly from the criteria resulting from our hand shape discussion - see the picture below)

Hi Kiran,

The description for point #8 says that you first (= first requirements) have to look at the location where the life line starts; the picture show that in the extravert-hand the life line starts in the upper half of the radial zone between the thumb and forefinger - while in the introvert-hand the life line starts in the lower half of that radial zone.

And additionally you can look for whether the 2nd requirement is met as well.

So, if a hand meets only one of the two requirements... that would implicate that the hand does not qualify for point #8,

(This implicates that not all hands with a disconnected head line from the life line will qualify as Introvert regarding #8)

Does this make sense now?


PS. All details & guidelines in the picture are important; but don\\\'t worry... I have planned to present more details at a later stage.

Hi Martijn, The first part is clear.
But, why is "joining of headline and lifeline"is considered on the extraversion side?

The 8th would have been accurate if it was:
high placed + disconnected = extraversion
low placed + connected = introversion

But, currently it is:
high placed + connected = extraversion
low placed + disconnected = introversion

Ofcourse, the current combination does cause extraversion; But, the combination I have given would place the extraversion markers one side and would have enhanced the indication ability.

Kiran, I am aware that some hand reading authors have associated a 'head line separated from the life line' with Extraversion (e.g. I have mentioned Johnny Fincham as one of those authors in my article) - but I have no idea where this theory origins from.

Regarding my study:

The 'head line separated from the life line' is much more often present in the hands of the INTROVERTS (43% = 6 out of 14 introverts have this characteristic in both hands) than the EXTRAVERTS (5% = 1 out 20 extraverts have this characteristic in both hands).

I think these results clearly show that the (former) theory saying that a 'separated head line' is an indication for extraversion... is simply not correct at all. Because the statistics in my study clearly present contradictive evidence. And I could add that nobody ever managed to present any evidence supporting the (former) theory.


By the way, I can also report that the COMBINATION of a 'low positioned thenar crease' and 'head line separated from the life line' is presented in only 1 hand of one of the 20 EXTRAVERTS (while this combination is presented in 7 hands of the 14 INTROVERTS). I hope this statistical details explain why the 'weight' of point 8 in my model is actually relativeley high!

Does this now make sense?

Hi Lynn,

I have addressed Johnny's guideline in my former comment to Kiran.

(By the way, I had planned to ask for your thoughts regarding the fact that Johnny has presented in his first books two different lists of hand characteristics that relate to the dimension extraversion/introversion. )


Regarding Holtzman's comment, page 41 in his second book describes how Holtzman theory is focussed on the balance between 2 aspects of the hypothenar in his theory regarding extraversion/introversion (via a consideration the balance 'life instinct' and the 'death instinct').

Holtzman describes that the 'death instinct' manifests (only) when the hypothenar enters the wrist, and he associates this specific part of the hypothenar with introversion only when this specific part is the dominant aspect of the hypothenar. And when the 'death instinct' does not manifest (= when the hypothenar is not entering the wrist), then he associates a well developed upper part of the hypothenar with extraversion.

Regarding my sample, I can report that I have found no confirmation that the hypothenar enters the wrist more often in the hands of the introverts (quite a few introverts have this characteristics... but a likewise percentage of the extroverts has this characteristic as well).

So, I think it is important to notice here that my results do not 'contradict' Holtzman's theory - because he is talking about the 'balance' between the upper- and lower part of the hypothenar... while my report only relates to the development of the full hypothenar.

Does this make sense now?

Kiran, I have been thinking about your question/comment a little bit more ... and as an additional thought, maybe the picture below kind of explains why it is not surprizing to see that 'independent thinking' appears to correlate with 'introversion' (in the hand).

INdependent
INtroversion

(The words themselves also show a connection)


"Seeking independence (via act or thought) can by principle be recognized as a typical expression for the need/nature of an introvert"

Martijn, what I wanted to know is: how did you take a rating on the individual parameters?
'coz, in the set of cases, where the separation of headline is studied for, there might be other factors which influenced them from being introvert and not exactly this marker.

For those, where the head and life line are separated, it can be said that, since, they mingle with the group, they may want to be independent of the group! And since, they are with group very much, they are mostly extraverts and introverts.

The rest of the points, other than 8, are very logical, particularly the Moon mount and life line. But, this separation point is not convincing.

Hi Kiran,

To understand this issue more properly, I think it is also important to be aware that only a minority of people have the head line seperated from the life line. Seeking for independency by those people could by principle make sense... because they are a minority.

But I think/observe that it is quite impossible to argue that 'independent thinking' is a typical feature of Extraversion.

And I also observe that your 'reasong' appears to include an inconsistancy... because I think that when people 'mingle with the group', there is no (sensible) reason to assume that they do that for seeking independency.


Now, regarding your first point... yes, I fully understand that you are thinking about the option/possibility that 'hand features' can be neutralized by other hand features. Don't worry... I have considered that option as well.

But such effects become quite unlikely regarding the aspect of the headline/lifeline connection, because that would implicate here that such an effect would have to be found in the majority of the introverts (because 8 out of 14 introverts have a disconnected head line in at least one hand)... AND probably also the majority of the extraverts (because 12 out of 20 extraverts do not have a disconnected head line in any of their hands). And thus that is quite unlikely!

So, I understand your direction of thought... but I think such neutralizing-effects can by principle only be applied to at most a relatively small group of subjects in the studied group.

And actually, I could use YOUR argument ... to argue here likewisely that all evidence points out that this neutralizing-effect should be applied to the extraverts that have a disconnected head line - and not the introverts!

Again, 'independent thinking'... is from a fundamental point of view much more likely a typical introvert trait!

So, I think my research finding actually makes sense in the perspective of the fact that in the field of palmistry the disconnected head line is associated with independent thinking - and I have never seen anyone arguing against it.


Finally, I have myself a clearly disconnected head line in my right hand only (in my left hand it is connected) and I am an introvert my self. Additionally I could add that the only 'extravert' in my family is my brother... who has no disconnected head line in any of his hands at all - while my mother and sister do have it in one of their hands... and both are introverts as well.

So, in my family I see (strong) confirming evidence for my research finding regarding that a disconnected head line provides a clue for 'introversion'.

Kiran, I am looking forward to hear your thoughts regarding these observations.

(By the way, nice to see that most of the other points do make sense for you)

flower


PS. Again... the results of my study indicate that the starting point of the life line requires to be considered as well in order to get the most accurate result.

Hi Lynn,

I think my findings regarding hand shape (long fingers + narrow palm = introversion) can probably best be understood in the perspective of Sheldon's (controversial) somatotypes - see:

- http://www.innerexplorations.com/catpsy/t1c5.htm (picture below is take from this source)

- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somatotype_and_constitutional_psychology#References (presents Sheldon's summary of personality traits for each of his three basic types)

- And.... there is also a clear connection with Marfan syndrome: those people are known to tend to develop an introverted personality; today I have described a few more details in the Marfan syndrome topic: http://www.modernhandreadingforum.com/t843p15-marfan-syndrome-the-language-of-the-hands#23301

(Lynn, I realize that Sheldon's theory is usually described as 'outdated', but the wikipedia page mentions that some 'modern scientists' today still have not dismissed it)

Food for thought...?

Hi Kiran,

And I also observe that your 'reasong' appears to include an inconsistancy... because I think that when people 'mingle with the group', there is no (sensible) reason to assume that they do that for seeking independency.

But such effects become quite unlikely regarding the aspect of the headline/lifeline connection, because that would implicate here that such an effect would have to be found in the majority of the introverts (because 8 out of 14 introverts have a disconnected head line in at least one hand)... AND probably also the majority of the extraverts (because 12 out of 20 extraverts do not have a disconnected head line in any of their hands). And thus that is quite unlikely!

So, I understand your direction of thought... but I think such neutralizing-effects can by principle only be applied to at most a relatively small group of subjects in the studied group.

And actually, I could use YOUR argument ... to argue here likewisely that all evidence points out that this neutralizing-effect should be applied to the extraverts that have a disconnected head line - and not the introverts!

Again, 'independent thinking'... is from a fundamental point of view much more likely a typical introvert trait!

So, I think my research finding actually makes sense in the perspective of the fact that in the field of palmistry the disconnected head line is associated with independent thinking - and I have never seen anyone arguing against it.


Kiran, I am looking forward to hear your thoughts regarding these observations.

(By the way, nice to see that most of the other points do make sense for you)

PS. Again... the results of my study indicate that the starting point of the life line requires to be considered as well in order to get the most accurate result.
Hi Martijn, I wrote those lines, to bring up the point that trying to co-relate INtrovert/INdependent by the formation of words will not deduct anything here. Like you have put it, yes - "a person who doesn't want to be in the group can be an introvert and independent" does also make sense. If we take up the discussion likewise, it is possible to put the points on both the sides. So, we can keep this aside, IMO.

Before I go thru the set of handprints I have, on this, I would like to know 1 more thing: Why are you associating only HIGH SET life line for this? why not a LOW SET life line? The discussion we have had so far, is regarding the connection/disconnection of headline.

We have following combinations now:
HS life line + connected head line = extravert
HS life line + disconnected head line = introvert
LS life line + connected head line = ?, what is it here?
LS life line + disconnected head line =?, what is it here?

* HS - High set; * LS - Low set.

Since HS life line is considered, irrespective of being connected/disconnected, the headline is automatically high set. Are you giving any importance to this?

Hi Lynn,
broad palm - more into the tangible world
short fingers - less thinking
so, on what factors are you associating this combination with introversion?

Hi Kiran,

Yes, we could summarize hand sign no.8 as follows:

HS life line + connected head line = extravert
LS life line + disconnected head line = introvert

(PS. See the little mistakes in your writiing above?)


Additionally, I think you've presented a very interesting question at the bottom of your post:

"Since HS life line is considered, irrespective of being connected/disconnected, the headline is automatically high set. Are you giving any importance to this?"

My answer is that the exact position of the head line itself might not me very important (to me it appears not important so far, but I perceive a small potential possibility that it plays a role as well).

However, regarding the starting point of the life line: I think it is quite easy to understand the significance in the perspective of hand sign no.9; because if hand sign 9 makes sense to you... then the aspect of the low (introvert) or high (extravert) position of the life line could/should make sense as well:

For, the combination of a 'narrow path' of the life line and a 'low positioned' starting point of the life line... both signal a situation where the life line is embracing only a relatively small part of the palm.

And from a theoretical point of view: since the life line is associated with 'vitality', one can argue that Introversion results from a low "expression" of 'vitality'.

I think this is also clearly illustrated by one of the 6 aspects of the dimension Extraversion in the NEO PI-R questionnaire: the so-called 'activity' aspect.

(By the way, in the NEO PI-R questionnaire the dimension Extraversion is defined with the 6 sub-dimensions: Activity - Assertiveness - Excitement Seeking - Gregariousness - Positive Emotions - Warmth)


I hope this now all makes sense for you as well, Kiran.
Have I answered your questions?


Thanks!

PS. Also please be aware, that my study points out that it requires an analysis of at multiple dimensions of the hand to 'read' from a hand whether an individual is an 'extravert' and 'introvert' (or somewhere in between). And this implicates that one sign on it's own is by principle not much more than anything but meaningless!

Hi Martijn,
Yes, I got that mistake.

HS life line + connected head line = extravert
LS life line + disconnected head line = introvert

Its like headline is at one position(horizontally) and also at high position.
Life line either pulls up/resides down.And in doing so, either gets connected to headline or disconnected from it.

So, its high setting/low setting of life line that matters and not the connection/disconnection with the headline.
If its connection or disconnection with headline then, the following combinations should also be considered:


HS life line + disconnected head line = ?
LS life line + connected head line = ?

hi Kiran, I was thinking of the nature of many people with earth handshape (and other earthy characteristics on the hand). eg, often spend time alone, reserved etc.
I guess my comment is irrelevant anyway as there were no earth hand shapes in this study. Thanks for asking the questions you have asked about this study, I was thinking some of the same questions.
Thanks for your replies Martijn. I'd be interested to see a bigger study that also involved men and people with an average or lower than average IQ, rather than just women with higher than average IQ. Then we'd get a more representative sample of the general population.
