Personality tests shed light on something new about ourselves. Some are based on scientific studies, such as the Myers-Briggs test, while others are more subjective. The personality test below was discovered in South Korea. It is derived from the ancient practice of palmistry, however, in this test, the basics of a personality type can be deciphered from just one variable – the pinky finger. And though it may be small, it is believed that your pinky can speak volumes about your personality as a whole, especially with regard to the ways that you communicate and interact with the world around you.
Which of the following descriptions best suits your personality? Look closely at both your hands and find out!
Type 1: Short
Description: The tip of your pinky finger is below the top joint of your ring finger.
Meaning: A short pinky finger can indicate that you are shy and reserved, particularly around strangers. It also means that you have big dreams, but your timid personality holds you back from going after them. Nevertheless, thanks to your big heart and kind soul, you can achieve anything that you want.
Type 2: Even
Description: If the top of your pinky finger is about the same height as the top knuckle of your ring finger, then you’re likely to have an even personality type.
Meaning: It should come as no surprise that having an even pinky finger means that you have a balanced, mellow personality. It takes a great deal to irritate you and, more often than not, you do not stress out much. However, it is this attitude that may make you seem dispassionate and cold. It also indicates that people need to get to know you well before you reveal your warmth and fascinating personality.
Type 3: Long
Description: Your little finger extends past the top knuckle of your ring finger.
Meaning: A long pinky finger means that you are charming and very sociable. While your personality type is often sought after, you generally have to work harder than other personality types to prove that you are trustworthy and that you can be taken seriously.
Type 4: Low Set
Description: Turn your palm up to face you and look at your fingers. For most people, the base of the fingers seem to form a gentle semicircle. In this case, if your pinky is set well below the other fingers, then you have a low-set pinky.
Meaning: In palm reading, the little finger is often associated with dreams and ambitions for the future. A low setting little finger can indicate that you live in a dream world and that you have many plans and aspirations, but sometimes, you have trouble translating those ideas in the real world.
Type 5: Same Length
Description: Usually, most people have their pinky finger smaller than their ring finger. It is rarely the same length, or as described above, longer.
Meaning: Most people with a pinky finger the same length as their ring finger tend to be driven and power-hungry individuals. You are likely to see this type on CEOs, presidents or celebrities – they tend to be found on the type of people who have the sheer force of will to massively change the world, but they also have the potential to wreak havoc.
Type 6: Square
Description: Look at your hand, palm facing down. Look at the top part of your pinky finger. If the tip seems to form a flat, horizontal line, your pinky has a square tip.
Meaning: A square-tipped pinky indicates that you have a handful of admirable qualities. You may also tend to be extremely blunt and plainspoken – which can be both a strength and a weakness. This type indicates an inability to connect with sensitive and easily offended people. Nevertheless, their honesty and forthrightness will win them a lot of trust. Good, reluctant leaders often have a square-tipped pinky.
Type 7: Pointed
Description: If you have a pointed fingertip, your little finger will appear to slant on either side toward a higher juncture at the center.
Meaning: Individuals with this pinky type are excellent public speakers and writers. They tend to be eloquent, yet diplomatic individuals. They can address any topic with excellence and tact, and they pair exceptionally well with square-tipped pinkies.
Type 8: Curved
Description: Face your palm toward you and look at your pinky finger. Is it in line with the rest of your fingers? Does it appear to curve toward or away from your other fingers? If so, you may have a curved or a crooked pinky.
Meaning: Curved pinky fingers usually indicate a fear of confrontation. However, in most situations, it is less about the fear and more about the desire to make peace. Whether your pinky finger is pointing towards or away from your other digits, you are perceived to be a deal-maker, a peace-broker and a bridge between disconnected people.
