The thumb and fingers correspond to the part of the cerebrum associated with self control, language, structure, creativity and the ego. Neanderthal man had very short fingers, showing comparatively under-developed frontal lobes of the brain. Development in these areas shows more sophisticated attributes and language skills. Even 500 years ago people were generally not so well developed in these cerebral areas and had shorter fingers.
The Fire Hand: Narrow palm + Short fingers
This combination puts someone in the world of stimulation seeking. The short fingers mean short thought constructs, and the narrow hand means they are affected and influenced by the environment.
A Fire handed person needs to be doing. They feel good when they are achieving, and it is important that they fulfil this within them. They like to have a busy day, accomplish a lot and to do something physical. They must let off steam physically, they are prone to feelings of frustration. They are naturally sporty, intense, restless and competitive. They often work in dynamic situations where there is a competitive element. They like change and rising to the top in a situation can come quickly to them. They want constant challenge with lots of change or else they get bored.
Other people can be very frustrating for a Fire person. If they work with people it has to be in a productive way, they would never like to be passive and would have to help by doing, motivating and changing.
Think passionate, excitable, creative, competitive, driven, flashy and you have a typical Fire hand who loves a challenge.
The rarest print is the tented arch. It’s found when there is a triradius in the arch. The tented arch is the fire element print, and it’s useful to think of it in this way. These people are the opposite to a simple arch: a tented arch person is all about adventure, excitement and enthusiasm; they’re motivational and love change. They break out of boundaries, they’re restless, self-expressive people, creative, impulsive and don’t like to be stuck somewhere.In a working environment, they shoot to the top – get bored, change job and start something new. This is the opposite of the simple arch who would steadily work their way to the top over several years and are not likely to leave. Tented arch people are somewhat attracted to danger, and are thrill-seeking risk takers. They love transformation and change, and the idea of changing themselves in a positive way is incredibly appealing. This print is only found on the index finger.
