Do These Two Lines Match Up On Your Hands? Here's What It Means | 22 Words

We've all seen the lines on the insides of our hands, but did you know that they can actually tell you a whole lot about your personality?

We all know that our hands can say a lot about who we are.

Palm reading has been around for thousands of years, and it's been a time-tested indicator of a number of personality attributes.

The shape of your hand can offer a general demonstration of what kind of person you are.

You can see here, that these are the "broad strokes." Meanwhile, the more intricate aspects are contained not in the hand's shape, but the lines it contains.

While there is still much room for interpretation and subjectivity, there are agreed-upon philosophies.

Lifelines, for one, reveal the biggest features of your life. That would include health, prosperity, and romantic endeavors.

But there are other lines that can tell quite a story as well.

Depending on which type of palm reader you ask, these lines, located higher on the hand (just below the first knuckle of your fingers) can tell quite a story. They're the lines here marked "spleen" on the right hand, though the exist on both, obviously.

So, not only do the lines themselves speak volumes, but their positions in relation to one another do as well.

Let's look that the rules of these oft-overlooked lines and see what they mean, shall we?

Put your two hands together.

Now clap them together three or four times... Okay, that has nothing to do with anything, but it does reveal that you're gullible and willing to clap your hands when a random stranger tells you to. But now it's time to get serious.

Well, that's not totally true about clapping not helping. It does.

So does making fists repeatedly. They make the lines more prominent, so they might be easier to see when stacking these up to the images you're seeing.

Combine your palms like this and see where the wrinkles line up.

They might be perfectly lined up, or they might not line up at all. Don't worry...unlike, "Do these pants make me look fat?" there is no wrong answer with this one.

How simple is this? You've just gotta choose one of the three conditions presented here.

Your three choices are easy enough to discern:
  • The lines are equal height
  • The left line is higher
  • The right line is higher
Let's see what they mean, shall we?

If They're the Same Height

via: Guff

If your hand wrinkles are the same height, then you're basically the best person ever. And I'm not just saying that because mine are equal height. But if you're not lining up to be the best person ever, have no fear, as there are a couple more options.

You're a wonderful human, and might see yourself as Rob Lowe's Chris Treager in Parks and Recreation.

We should all be so lucky, but don't go shimmying your hands up and down to reverse engineer your goodness. We'll know if you're faking it!

If the Right Hand Is Higher

via: Guff

Even though you don't care what people think, I'm going to tell you that this explanation — although nice and all — kind of pales in comparison to the winners whose wrinkles line up. I'm just saying...

So are you the cougar, per your hands' topography?

via GIPHY

Maybe, maybe not, But you'll find out in the next one. you can't hide from the truth of palm reading.

If the Left Hand Is Higher

via: Guff

Apparently all the good-looking cougars and sugar daddies have left hand lines higher than the right. Being passionate and fiery is great and all, but it's no "wrinkles on my hand line up" or anything. Oh well. We're all given the hands that we're dealt. Who knew that those hands said so much?

Is that you? Are you the fiery lover?

via GIPHY

Sure, many of us would like to think that we are, but the hands don't lie, so be honest in your comparison! You're one of these archetypes, so pick the one closest to you, then put others to the test.
