Double Simian or One Simian Line on the Palm

About the Simian Line

Do you have a double Simian line? Or just one on either hand? On a small proportion of hands, the heart line, and head line appear to be joined into a single line, forming one long line across the palm, known as the Simian line, or crease.

The association of this line was once thought only to be with chromosomal disorders such as Down syndrome. However, it is mostly considered a regular feature. In some recent studies, it is believed to show forms of neuroticism, hyperactivity, introversion, and sometimes delinquent behaviour.

While these attributes may relate to some of the people involved in the survey, they have also found that this line on someone with no physical defects or other behavioural problems, signifies a somewhat different, quite intense character; not necessarily a negative attribute as it would seem.



The owner of a Simian line can possess great potential for strong will and focus, many of whom are ambitious and driven, primarily if they have found their niche and had opportunities in their life regarding education and family support.

Double Simian Line

With a Double Simian line (one on both hands), they can show the opposite; struggle with their ambition and inability to have the proper focus. However, to hypothesise about this crease, look at other features of the hand, such as hand shape, finger length, thumbs, and lines; including fingerprint and palm patterns.

Typically, the owners of a Simian line are stubborn, unpredictable and easily misunderstood by others. They do however tend to possess an abundance of energy, some finding it difficult to relax, unless on a soft water hand with a weak or short life line, then the get-up-and-go may run out quickly.



While these people are intense, at the same time they can be very empathic and quite sensitive in their way. Usually very open-minded, yet cynical; nonetheless mostly what you see is what you get. They are either fully on, or fully off, (extremely kind, loving and attentive) or overly argumentative and cold.

Latest Survey Results

The latest results of my survey of the double Simian found that of the people who did the questionnaire, 48% had a double Simian, the rest had just one, either on the left or right hand.

Out of all the subjects, whether double Simian or only one, 90.9% said that they are sensitive and easily offended.  Also, out of the same group, 70% believe they are intellectual. 28.5% of them also believe they are creative and athletic. It goes to show that in the combination of heart and mind, that they find their strength in their intellect, yet are very sensitive.
