Thumbs up for Oprah Winfrey!

Oprah Winfrey: hands up!
The left hand of Oprah Winfrey!

Oprah Winfrey (1954)

The most remarkable characteristic in the hands of Oprah Winfrey appears to be the (hidden) role of the index finger: the full length of the index finger equals the full length of the ring finger (2D:4D digit ratio = 1.00), and the three major palmar lines all start in the zone below the index finger (NOTICE: the lower branch of the heartline appears to reach out to the side of the palm).

Other interesting characteristics are: her long thumbs (see the first photo above), the ‘independent’ headlines, and a relative low number of minor lines.

NOTICE: Afro-american people are known for having a relatively low 2D:4D finger ratio, so Oprah’s relatively strong pointer finger (also stressed-out by the starting points of the three major palmar lines) could be recognized as a typical ‘female’ characteristic which could be related to here ’empathic’ abilities. The slightly short (low set) pinky finger (both hands) could be related to a high sensitivity for (negative) emotions [which relates to the Big Five dimension Neuroticism].

    Again, thanks for locating and posting these terrific photos. To me, Jupiter looks to be shorter than Apollo on her left hand. This is sort of surprising given she is so influential. But perhaps the influence comes from the large angle of opposition between her Thumb and hand. This reflects a desire for a large environment to influence. And her marking of independent thought, which is identified, is a good one. She doesn’t settle, does she?
