Small Finger Meanings in Hand Analysis

When you think about palmistry, you might look at the lines on your palm. However, to read the hand correctly, you must compare several aspects, including the fingers and their length. Sometimes it isn’t easy to decipher whether a finger is longer or shorter than usual. A small finger can be thin, or it might be short, sometimes both.

As a member, my favourite Amazon associated links appear on this site.

The best way to begin is by first deciding if all the fingers are average length or not, then checking the setting of the fingers to see whether they are even. To tell if all the fingers are long or short, compare them to the back of the hand. The reason why it’s challenging to judge finger length on the palm side is because the mounts (if well-developed) can affect the look of the fingers.

how to tell finger length in palmistry

If the fingers appear about the same length as the palm, they are usually average, neither long nor short. However, if the palm is a rectangle shape or narrow, the same length fingers are classified as long because the palm is long. (Confusing, maybe).

Below is an example of long fingers.

When figuring out if any specific finger is short, I have found that the middle finger is the best guide to judge the other fingers. The ring and index fingers should reach a little over halfway along the top phalange of the middle finger. The pinkie’s average length should reach the ring finger’s top crease.

When a finger is of average length, it characteristically shows a balanced individual with a normal level of confidence, ambition, ego and responsibility.

Individual meanings of the small finger.

If one finger happens to be shorter or thinner than usual, it can depict underdevelopment in the qualities that are represented by it. Examples of meanings by the individual short finger:

  • The small Pinkie – Deficient business or communication skills. The general development of learning might have been delayed or slow to start. A person can learn these skills, but they don’t come naturally. The little finger is typically smaller, but if there is marked thinness that appears abnormal, it suggests repression of the mental or emotional growth of the individual. Often, this manifests as learning disabilities, mental disorders, compulsive behaviour, phobias, and extreme shyness. There is a history of feelings of guilt, anger, shame, and unworthiness in some cases. With these qualities, often the thumb is also short and thin.
  • Small ring finger – Untapped creativity. These people might be somewhat antisocial or introverted. The lack of character could make them boring to others. Their success comes from drive and ambition rather than pure talent, but they may be shy in front of an audience, especially if the pinkie (Mercury) finger is also short.
  • The small middle – Lack of seriousness. The person can have long-term guilt or have a cowardly way about them. If it’s short, they are often irresponsible or show disrespect for the law. They do not take to stress well and may suffer depression or unhappiness.

Small index finger

A small Index finger equals a small ego. Lack of confidence or leadership (unless it is thick). These types tend to be recluses. They might enjoy being on their own, or they do not need to be at the centre of attention (for instance, the person who does not have a Facebook profile). In one case, a man with a short index finger was in a situation where his peers rejected him during his younger years, but at the same time, he did not feel he belonged to any group. In some instances, it could be the location of their home (such as living on a farm or boat), or they felt distant due to their different personality.

The small thumb

The small thumb shows a weaker drive or a lack of leadership. However, these people have gentle hearts and do not like to cause problems.

Thickness matters

Remember that another feature to look for is the finger’s thickness because a short finger will often be compensated for by being thicker than average. If this is the case, the person will likely be making up for any deficiency.

For example, when the Index is short (typically indicating some lack of confidence). But if it is also thick, then the trust issues are of the past. A mount underneath it can also help offset its shortness or thinness by its prominence or markings, such as vertical lines.
