The Long Index Finger

The Long Index Finger is anything measuring higher than 2/3 of the way up the top joint of the Middle Finger.

This finger reflects a strong ego, or sense of self.

The owner will be quite sure of their abilities and enjoy getting to the top. In fact, they expect to get to the top of whatever business they have chosen.

They can take the lead with no qualms and set a confident example for those who follow.

You could say that these people are natural leaders, rather than leaders who climbed up in an attempt to bury insecurities. Margaret Thatcher, Martha Stewart and Ivanka Trump have Long index fingers.

The Long Index Finger person takes control of their own affairs and is not easy for others to influence. They need to be boss. And people respond to their innate confidence.

They wear their confidence as a sort of armor that deflects any negative comment.

Sometimes you can find a Long Index Finger person who says they are shy or introverted or insecure.

This is not the case. They are mistaking their own preoccupation with their self-image for self-doubt. The Long Index Finger person takes everything so seriously that it can appear that the same mechanism is at work. It is not. They mull over every word you say and make sure that it truly reflects the way they see themself, in the best light possible.

These people can be good leaders if they have other skills and abilities. But most of all they are absorbed with their own sense of self and endlessly ask questions such as “Where am I going?”, “Was that the best decision for my career?” and, “What about me!?”

Those with Long Index Fingers want to be respected and admired by others. They don’t really care if you like them.

Because they tend to be serious and hardworking, they see no reason why the very top shouldn’t be their place in the natural order of things.

These people hate to be told what to do. After all, they’ve spent considerable time thinking about their strengths and shoring up their weak spots, and consider that they know best.

Long Index Finger men are rare.
