Personality is defined as the individual divergence among people in behavioral patterns, cognition [learning and reasoning], and emotion [feeling].


Analyzing an individual’s personality by applying his/her physical characteristics has been around for time immemorial and comes under phrenology, also called the science of mind. Phrenologists use the shape of the skull to determine an individual’s personality.  There is an additional branch in phrenology which studies the shape and length of the fingernail and finger to determine an individual’s personality.

  4. If you have a square nail, you are gifted with patience.  You are the sober kind and not so flexible character.  This could keep people away.  Make little changes to your disposition, your friends will like you.
  5. If you have a triangle-shaped nail, you are endowed with an astonishing eye for details.  What others miss looking, you get it.  Creative by nature, you are sensitive to people who brag.  
  6. If you have the almond-shaped nail, you are loyalty personified.  You are sincere and polite but highly sensitive and at times, tend to get short-tempered.  You have a steadfast and unshaken conviction for things you endorse and can handle difficult situations with ease.
  7. If you have a sword-shaped nail, you are a hard-worker and you tend to go that extra mile to reach your goal. Sometimes, you get impatient with people for the reasons you know but they don’t; caution should be exercised on this as this might work against you.  Everyone likes to be in a comfort zone but you are not one among them.
