Which hand to present, Left or Right?
If you are wondering which hand is to be presented for reading, the answer is quite obvious. The hand from which you do most of the tasks is to be read.

Types of hands can be categorised into four, each one of them representing an element. The lines of the dominant and passive hands take different turns. Here are simple signs to identify the types of hands: -

- Earth Hands- A square shape hand with thick lines and short fingers is characterised as such. These people are practical, humble and take lead in their romantic lives.
- Fire Hands- A long palm with short fingers and a mesh of lines makes you fearless. They are positive people and risk-takers.
- Water Hands- If you have a long palm with thin lines and unclear lines with soft skin, you have Water hands. These people love to indulge in creative activities and are emotional. They are the sensible ones in their love life and a little naïve.
