‘Mr. Palmist, which hand do you read?’

Which hand does the palmist read? History shows that the answer might depend on the culture where Palmistry is being used.

Some recommendations from the international Palmistry literature on which hand to use for Palmistry:William G. Benham writes in ‘The Benham Book of Palmistry’ (1900):

(p. 31): “In all examinations you should consult both hands, and should never attempt specific statements, unless they are based upon a thorough knowledge of the information which can be gleaned only from the hands considered seperately, and then together. Many failures are recorded in palm readings when one hand only has been used, due to the fact that men change as they grow older, and these changes are recorded in the right hand.”

Edward D. Campbell writes in ‘The Encyclopedia of Palmistry’ (1996):

(p.20): “I no longer follow any traditional method of looking at the right and left hand. I believe that those Eastern methods that look only to the right hand for male clients and the left hand for females are totally inadequate and sexist, and often are value-based against the left hand. This bias against the left hand has crept into Western Palmistry just as the latin word for left, sinister, has coloured our thoughts concerning left-handed persons as conniving, bad people.”

Arnold Holtzman, Ph.D. writes in ‘Psychodiagnostic Chirology in Analysis and Therapy’ (2004):

(p.63): “As for the hands themselves, no two are exactly alike – not even when they belong to the same person. The question that arises must be: if each hand is unique, delivering a ‘story’ which must, in some way, be different from every other ‘story’, which hand and which ‘story’ is the most representative of the individual? Which may we assume to be the truest mirror of his, or her, immediate circumstances? The answer is both – equally. Each hand may put forward its own account of the man it speaks of, and each would be entirely relevant.”
