Your long fingers are seeking more contact with the outer world and more information from all others around you. You are mentally active people with never-ending interesting ideas. You long-finger people love details, are outer-directed in taking action, and need more data than short-finger people before forming your opinions.
You long-finger people are interested in the details of stories and events. You like to mentally take ideas and things apart, and put them back together again to better understand them before taking action. This long-finger trait drives short-finger people "crazy". Since there are more long-finger women than men, that explains a lot!
If you have exceptionally long fingers, you like to do a lot of thinking about life and what you could do to make it more interesting. Long-finger people are thinkers, but not great on taking action. If you have long fingers, you might consider doing the following:
Choose friends and a mate with fingers long and straight. Your long-finger friends and mate will understand you much better than short-finger people. Interesting discussions, planning, and analysis of actions and ideas are delightfully discussed between long-finger people. It would be good if some competition develops to stimulate more action to avoid just talking and thinking.
Life with a mate whose long fingers are similar in length to yours will provide many hours of interesting discussions for you both. A short finger mate will just be troublesome for you as she or he will be "marching to a different drummer."
Caution: Since thinking and discussing ideas and plans are so enjoyable for long-finger people, they may delay taking action where needed and miss out on many opportunities in life! Long-finger people should make sure they initiate getting started on those plans and just don't go over and over them in their head endlessly without doing anything about them.
People who normally hold and display their hands relaxed with open fingers that are not rigid, feel safe and secure in the present setting. You long-finger people with open fingers are free spirited with a "live and let live" attitude. You are not ruled by conventional rules of society. You are tolerant of other people's opinions and views, but you do not let them influence you. You listen to the opinions of others but feel free to chart your course in life based on your unique views.
When the fingers are held tightly together, with the palm open and flat, it is a sign that the person feels unsafe and not receptive to new ideas. The fingers need to be "closed" in order for the person to feel safe and secure. If the fingers are stiff, it shows this person to be very resistive to any changes to present state of mind. It is important for the Hand Analyst not to take this resistance personally or judge the person, for they live in a scary world to them. Much of their daily physical and mental energy is spent just surviving and avoiding potential conflicts. Long stiff fingers are very opposed to any changes in daily routine.
