Five type of hand

 As already stated, the hands in general are being divided into five categories     depending on the shape, texture of the hand tip of nails and length of nails as well.
The idealistic Hand is, as the name implies, the most beautiful among the four typical hands. It is usually somewhat small and delicate in texture and in colour; the fingers are straight, rather long in proportion to the palm, and very pointed at the tips. The thumbs are small, neither will nor reason being strong in purely idealistic natures, and like the fingers, they are very pointed at the tips.
Persons having this hand whether they are poets, painters, sculptors, or musicians are essentially idealists in their art. It is not the highest, but the most ethereal, art which emanates form those having the purely idealistic Hand.
Persons having the purely idealistic hand (which must, to be perfect, possess a good-imagination) see everything in the golden light of imagination, and find happiness in dreams of intangible beauty; poetic expression, ethereal, not passionate, is their natural language. They always incline to the marvelous – the sublime, the spiritualistic side of all things; theirs the belief in omens, in occult literature, in the supernatural. Without, perhaps, attaching themselves to any fixed creed, they are, by nature, worshippers, and the mysterious moan of the sea, the song of the brook, the roar of the torrent, and the signing of the wind, are to them but as so may revelations of the Deity!
The influence of those having these hands on the masses is, by force of contrast, great – they have, from time to time, by their inspired words, revivifled the dying faiths, which science kills with her cold analysis.
Lovers of poetry, of art, romance, and mystery, people with the idealistic Hands, must have a god who appeals to their imagination. They possess, in a high degree, the soul of all true religion, self-abnegation, and that ecstatic, unreasoning faith which produces saints and martyrs.
People with these hands are, however, naturally – from their perception of beauty – lovers of luxury, especially as far as the eye is concerned. They praise things more for their beauty than for heir utility. They avoid – abominate – all analysis, and are utterly incapable of taking in the truths of science – its exactitude irritates them. They are loyal to old association, and are never in advance of their age. They are easily moved to tears, and are graceful in all their gestures. They can, in exalted moments, do without the necessaries of life, and yet from their intuitive worship of the beautiful, they are lovers of the luxurious superfluities which make up an elegant and refined existence. People with these hands do not age much; their hearts are eternally young, for they live a life of perpetual illusion, and though often, alas! Necessarily disappointed in both men and things, they never entirely lose faith in the poetry of existence.
A modification of this type, that is a hand still with small thumbs and with pointed tips to the fingers, which are smooth and soft in texture but think at their base, indicating sensuousness, is a hand generally seen among poets, artists, and executive musicians or composers, in whom melody rather than science is the strong point.
People, with this modification the typical idealistic Hand, are governed by instinct rather than reason, and by its light they always choose, without reflection, the picturesque view of matters. They hold in abhorrence all restraint, and are, generally, averse to any occupation requiring either mental or bodily exertion.
They love the beautiful in form, and as they are always of sensuous natures, colour has an immense influence upon them. With a strange mixture of importance and indolence, they are unit for command, yet they abhor the practice of obedience. They obey the desire of the moment, thinking little, and to all appearance, caring less, as to the result of their actions. They are enthusiastic, impulsive, and expensive, passing quickly from the extremes of hope to the deepest depression.
Another modification of the idealistic hand is a hand with pointed fingers, but very thick at their base, the palm also being very soft and fleshy, the thumb short, but with the lowest joints relatively long and very full, People with these hands are very sensuous, and are therefore, ardent pursuers of material pleasure, still, as some of the idealistic nature is given by the pointed finger-tips, they are not grossly sensual. They love the arts, although the sensuousness, which in them over-rides all else, would prevent them from appreciating what is highest in any art.
These hands are frequently seen amongst singers and actors of both sexes. Persons having this modification of the idealistic Hand are impressionable and affectionate but somewhat inconstant and untruthful; they are often very egotistical always vain, and lovers of effect.
Persons (especially women) having these hands, with long, instead of short thumbs, showing will and reason strong, are to be avoided, for too excessive sensuousness they add calculation and extreme love if domination. Women having such hands are devoid of sympathy, and love with them is a mere pastime carried on, often for interested motives, without any regard to the feelings of the men, Men, on the other hand are attracted by their sensual charms jumped into the lap of those beaitching women only to be entirely absorbed by them.
