Hand experts have noticed that Michael Jackson’s hand lines are rather remarkable and present a tell-tale – for example: take a look at his ‘double head line’, which is known in the fields of palmistry as a sign of a ‘double nature’ and an ‘eccentric personality’.
The famous palmist Cheiro wrote about the ‘double line of head':
“A double line of head is very rarely found, but when found it is a sure sign of brain power and mentality. Such people have a perfectly double nature — one side sensitive and gentle, the other confident, cold, and cruel. They have enormous versatility, great command of language, a peculiar power of playing and toying with human nature, and generally great will and determination.”
