The middle finger is considered the balance wheel of the hand. Notice how the strong middle finger in this photo appears to magnetically draw the other fingers toward it. Less inclined to marry than other types, this individual needs a lot of personal space. He’s dependable, organized, efficient, patient, and a very loyal friend. A satirical sense of humor sometimes disguises his very serious nature. His greatest challenges result from obsessing on feelings of responsibility, obligation, and guilt. Being overly responsible and self-critical is a sure path to frustration, fear, and depression for individuals with strong middle fingers.
Dominant middle-fingered people are frequently tall, slender, and angular in appearance. Pure types have dark hair, large bones, stern features, and bland complexions. Their prevailing physical sense is smell. Many love string instruments and prefer classical music with a tinge of sadness. They may eventually have problems with teeth, knees, ligaments, rheumatism, hardening of the arteries, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, and deafness in the left ear. If the middle finger leans toward the ring finger, you have an individual with a strong need for privacy. The moment he feels confined, controlled, or restricted, he gets cranky and irritable. Notice the curved middle finger on Donald Rumsfeld’s left hand. Abraham Lincoln and Clint Eastwood are quintessential dominant middle-fingered types. Many conservative business people, technical individuals, craftsmen, writers, therapists, night watchmen, master criminals, morticians, undertakers, and derelicts have dominant middle fingers. Individuals with dominant first phalanges on the middle finger lead the way in research, science, mathematics, and humor.
Have a dominant middle-fingered boss? You’d better do your homework with a very sharp pencil. Precision and realism are required, don’t be late and don’t make excuses. Assume responsibility. If you’re pragmatic, reliable, and dependable, you’ll avoid criticism.
The middle finger is always the longest finger. Sometimes, however, it appears short relative to the index and ring fingers, which reveals a need for more structure, discipline, and focus. Harnessing these qualities is especially hard for these people. Healthy use of will power is essential.
The middle finger is the finger of fate. It’s where illusion (or delusion) and reality meet. No matter what else is going on in your hands, the middle finger forces you to face the facts and do whatever needs to be done. It always requires work on your part. There’s a remedy for most maladies and the middle finger is the first place to look for solutions to challenges. If you don’t do the work, it will show up in other ways in your hands. A grill (which I call schmutz), for example, is a bunch of lines crisscrossing in every direction under the middle finger. This is a sure sign of frustration resulting from not doing what needs to be done. People with schmutz below their middle finger are their own worst critics. They need to lighten up, buckle down, and bite the proverbial bullet. Accomplishing one little step at a time is the best remedy for being frustrated and overwhelmed, which will gradually reduce and eventually erase the grill. A truly healthy person will have a strong healthy middle finger.
