Fingerprints Do Tell

No two people have the same fingerprint, however there are patterns that all fingerprints possess.  Some people claim that an analysis of these patterns can reveal a lot about a person.

Fingerprints are formed before we are born and their shape are based partly on genetics and partly on random patterning.  These prints are made-up of an arrangement of ridges called friction ridges.  It is these ridges that form fingerprint pattern called whorls, loops and arches. Whorls form spiral patterns like tiny whirlpools.  Loops are prints that curve back into themselves forming a loop shape.  The arched pattern is a wave-like appearance forming plains and arches.

Palmistry is the study of fingerprints to determine personality traits. It has been practiced for thousands of years and believed to have originated in India (   These palm readers often use a combination of the lines of a palm along with fingerprints to develop a complete personality profile.  A hand with whorls on the fingertips is thought to belong to a strong willed perfectionist.  Whorls on one thumb is believed to indicate a high level of intellect, whereas whorls on both thumbs is considered to be symbolic of a controlling personality.  A “whorly” person tends to be independent and prefers to be the dominant one in any relationship. For this reason these people make strong leaders.

The belief is that the arch pattern is found on the fingertips of highly analytical and practical people.  The more numerous the arches the more cautious the person tends to be.  Because of their reliability and pragmatism these people are a good fit in a career where there is a high level of methodology. The looped pattern is seen in folks of average intelligence with pleasant and easy-going demeanors.  Because of their adaptability possessors of this pattern make excellent partners and employees. A subset of the loop pattern is the peacock eye.  This looks like a loop with a whirl in the center.  This is typically only seen on the ring or pinkie finger and believers in palmistry claim that the bearer of this pattern possess a great deal of luck.

Regardless of the truth to this, fingerprint jewelry can serve as a touchstone.  Being able to feel those arches, whorls and loops that were unique to only your loved one can bring comfort to a grieving loved one.
