Hands shape determines personality

Determine your strong and weak fingers

According to Kay Packard, the Director and Founder of the American Academy of Hand Analysis, your strong hand and fingers reveal your personality traits.

Handedness is the tendency to be right-handed or left-handed. So if your right hand has greater grip strength than the left hand, then your right hand is dominant, according to the study published in The British Journal of Hand Therapy. Because you will mostly use this hand for all your skilled activities. Then, your other hand is a non-dominant hand

According to Kay Packard’s research, palms and fingers of your dominant or lead hand say a lot about your personal qualities and business. Whereas, the fingers of your non-dominant hand reflect your attitude towards your near and dear ones.
