Palmistry’s digital analogue: is 2D:4D finger ratio the new Chiromancy?

Chris McManus – author of the book: ‘Right Hand, Left Hand‘ – considers claims that finger-length ratios point to individual and sex differences.

Will measuring finger length ratios become the new Chiromancy? The famous palmist Cheiro would likely have loved John Manning’s ‘The Finger Book’!

Chiromancy (cheiromancy), the notorious pseudoscience that Sir Walter Scott bracketed with physiognomy, astrology and “other fantastic arts of prediction”, has for two decades been creeping back into scientific favour. And UK professor of Psychology John T. Manning appears to be its high priest.

Nevertheless, Chris McManus points out in his article that there are a few problems in John Manning’s digit ratio work. Manning’s theory generates a strong sense of deja vu, for so much is reminiscent of the rambling, sprawling, all-encompassing theory of almost all things neuropsychological, and indeed much beyond, put forward in the late 1980s.

“WHAT IS CHEIROMANCY?”

… Cheiromancy (Kee-roh-man-see) is the art of foretelling a person’s likely future by knowing his/her character from reading the palm lines in their hands. The name is derived from the Greek cheir for “hand”, and manteia for “divination”.

Cheiromancy is the old name for palmistry or palm reading, and is still in use today. It is at times spelt as Chiromancy or Kiromancy. It is also referred to as Cheirology, Chirology, or Kirology. However, Cheirology really is the study of the lines of the palm, without any divination involved.

Chirognomy and Chirosophy are related subjects – the former is the study of the shapes and bumps of the fingers and hands, and the latter is the study of the philosophical and esoteric aspects of palmistry.”

Dmitry Karabetskiy is a representive of ‘palmistry in Kazakhstan’, and he writes on his website www.chiromancyonline.com about Palmreader online:

“Palmreader was developed by Russian programmers, using advices of well known palmists and analyzing books about chiromancy. The Palmreader service developing was guided by the logic and exact analysis of a hand figure, instead of a beautiful design (a beautiful design considerably increases the size of file and downloading time).

Palmreader consists of 17 steps. Each step analyzes the definite figure of a palm. If you will have terminology questions, the answers you can find on pages of this site.”
