The Spatulate Hand

The Spatulate or active nervous type (Plate I., Part II.) is usually

crooked or irregular looking, with large tips or pads at the ends of the

fingers, rather like the spatula chemists use and from which peculiarity

this type gets its name. The people who possess this type are in fact

always "pounding" at something. They are full of untiring energy,

enormous workers in everything they take up, and generally remarkable

for their originality.

They are not built on the hard set square lines of the former type. These

persons have enormous imagination, their creative faculties largely

developed. They are inventive, unconventional, emotional, demonstrative,

and in fact the complete opposite in character to the class who possesses

the square type of hand.

The Spatulate type has also the palm irregular in shape. It may be wider

at the base of the fingers than at the wrist, or it may be found _vice


In the first case they are then more practical in their work and views

and less impulsive. With the larger development at the wrist, they are

more carried away with their impulses, hasty and impetuous in temper,

speech, and action.
