Your Future is Predicted on Your Palm


First practiced in India more than 5,000 years ago, palmistry involves reading the lines on your palm and analyzing the shape of your hand and fingers. According to palmists, these readings can evaluate your character and even predict your future. While some folks practice palmistry for entertainment, others believe it carries the key to your psychological makeup and can provide valuable guidance throughout your life.

Are you ready to learn about the lines in your hand and how they’re interpreted according to palmistry? Depending on how you look at it, these questions and answers can be a lot of fun or a thought-provoking glimpse into your personality.


Quiz WriterJoselyn

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did you know?

Alexander the Great practiced palm reading

Over 2,000 years ago, the Greek philosopher and teacher Aristotle (384-322 B.C.E.) discovered a treatise on palmistry left on an altar to the Greek god Hermes. Aristotle became so fascinated with palm reading, he shared his discoveries with one of his most famous students, Alexander the Great. The famed Macedonian king and military ruler was so impressed with the knowledge he subsequently made it a point to analyze the characters of his officers by reading the lines on their hands. Historically, however, other rulers haven't been so accepting. For example, England's King Henry VIII (1491-1547) considered palmistry a form of devil worship and actually banned palm reading during his reign.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
