Presidential Palm Readings: the hands of 10 US presidents!

Earlier this year TIME presented a photo essay of the hands of the last 9 US presidents – starting from Lyndon Johson to Barack Obama. On top of the photo essay, they asked hand expert palm reader Robin Gile to assess the palms of the presidents – without knowing which hand belonged to which president!

But now some more advanced palm readings materials are available in a new article, titled:

From Barack Obama to John F. Kennedy: 10 presidential US palm readings!

This article included e.g.:

– an advanced presidential photo session: ’60 presidential hands’;

– an analysis of the most prominent characteristics in the hands of each president;

– plus an analysis of the most common hand characteristics of the 10 performers of the ‘most wanted job’ in the world!

Interestingly, the result of the analysis indicates that quite a few of these ‘presidential men’ appear to have a rather remarkable characteristic in their ‘head line’ (in the world of palmistry a.k.a. the ‘line of head’ or ‘headline’):

The Sydney Line

The Sydney line is known as a rather unusual long palmar ‘head line’ (which is usually found in less than 5% of normal populations).

The presidential photos indicate that the following 4 presidents have this unusual hand characteristic: George H.W. Bush (both hands), Jimmy Carter (both hands), Gerald Ford (both hands), and Richard Nixon (right hand only).

The double head line

The ‘double head line’ is another unusual palmar characteristic (which is also found in less than 5% of normal populations).

The presidential photos indicate that both Bill Clinton (left hand) & John F. Kennedy (right hand) have the ‘double head line’.

Other interesting hand characteristics

The photo research also revealed that 50% of the presidents appear to have the combination of a long ring finger (a.k.a. the ‘sun’ finger) AND a strong, long sun line (a vertical palmar line below the ring finger).

Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, and Lyndon Johnson all have/had this ‘sunny’ combination in their dominant hand!

Other frequently observed hand characteristics are: a low ‘2D:4D digit ratio’, and a long pinky finger.
