Presidential Palm Reading:
the Lyndon Johnson ‘hand-file’!

• President: 1963-1969;
• Dexterity: right handed;
• Hand type: square palm shape;
• Fingers: normal finger length, short index finger, long ring finger, long pinky.


In april ’09 TIME magazine presented a photo essay on the hands of the last 9 US presidents; US palmist Robin Gile was asked to present his palm reading for each president. Without knowing that it was Lyndon Johnson’s hand, this is how Robin Gile described Johnson’s hand:

“The Charisma of a Performer”

“There’s a line that rises from the palm to the ring finger, which shows we’re talking about someone with the charisma of a performer, “ says Robin Gile, co-author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Palmistry. “He’s generous. I also see he’s stubborn, in a very passive-aggressive way. Decisions may not have been his strong suit. He didn’t have great mental discipline, he followed the course of least resistance. Overall, more a performer than a leader, I would say.”

    i don’t realy belive in these things.
    i had my palm red once by a gipsy woman and all she said was some nonsense.

    I don’t really know what to say about president Johnson, but i can tell you that i had my hand read once, and it was really accurate. There might be some truth in this.

  3. Mark Says:

    The description sounds about right, from what I know about president Lyndon Johnson, but I wonder if it is just a coincidence or is this a science.

      Hi Mark,

      Thanks for your comment. Maybe it helps to know that mister Gile ‘read’ the hand without knowing that it was Lyndon Johnson’s hand?

      Regards, Martijn.

  4. I really enjoy your blog about hands. You do not really run across many like this over time. Keep up the great work with it.
