Short Pinkie and the Meaning of a Short Finger
Do you have a short pinkie? Sometimes it’s difficult to decipher whether a finger is longer or shorter than normal. A small finger can be thin or short, sometimes both. A short pinkie is when it does not reach the top crease of the ring finger. Be aware though that the pinkie might be low set.
The best way, to begin, is by first deciding if all the fingers are average length or not, then check the setting of the fingers to see whether they are even.
I have found that the middle finger is the best guide to begin judging the index and ring fingers, and they should reach a little over halfway along the top phalange of the middle finger.
When a finger is of average length, it characteristically shows a balanced individual who would possess a normal level of confidence, ambition, ego and responsibility.
Short Pinkie and Individual Short Finger Meanings
A shorter or thinner than the typical finger can depict under development in the qualities that are represented by it. A large and long thumb always offsets the meaning and balances out any negative aspect. Some examples:
The Short Pinkie – communication difficulties or shyness. They can easily become tongue-tied and so may struggle with speaking in front of an audience. Some can lack sex drive and might be emotionally immature. The short pinkie depicts a gentle person who tends to be quiet and prefers calm environments.
The ring finger – A short ring finger can show untapped creativity. An antisocial or introverted nature.
The middle finger – A short middle finger shows a lack of seriousness or responsibility. Their view of life and its laws is somewhat different from regular length middle fingers.
The index finger – The short index finger shows a small ego. They can lack leadership, unless with a large thumb.
The thumb – The short thumb shows weak determination and willpower. Also a lack of leadership.
But before jumping to conclusions about the associations of a small finger, another feature to look for is the thickness, because often a short finger will be compensated for by being thicker than average. If this is the case, then the person is likely to be putting in an effort to make up for any deficiency. I have seen this especially when the Index finger is short (which would typically indicate some lack of confidence). But if it is also thick, then the trust issues are of the past. A mount underneath the finger can also help to offset shortness or thinness of a finger by its prominence or markings such as vertical lines.
