Did you know that the character of a person can be determined not only by the lines on the palm, the color of the eyes, the shape of the ears, but also by the structure of the legs? Do not believe me? Then read on.

In the structure of the human foot, there are three types: the Greek foot, the Egyptian and the Roman. Let's start with the first one.

Structure of the Greek foot

Usually the length of the toes of most peoplesuch that they are located in a descending line relative to the thumb. However, there are exceptions - people who have a second finger longer than the first. This type was called "Greek".

According to statistics, the Greek foot meets onlyin 10% of the world's population, and its prevalence is uneven. So, in Swedes, a similar structure of the legs occurs in only 3% of cases, but among the Ain people inhabiting the Japanese islands - almost 90%.

In medicine, this phenomenon was called "fingerMorton "in honor of Dudley D. Morton, an American orthopedic surgeon who first described it. In orthopedics, it is considered a deviation from the norm, but, despite this, it usually does not cause any inconvenience, except with the selection of shoes.


The formation of the Greek foot geneticallyconditioned. But how strongly the sign will be expressed depends on the rate of puberty. There is a theory that the length of the fingers directly depends on the age of the closure of the tubular bones. It is believed that the farther the tubular bones are from the heart, the earlier and sooner they close at puberty.

Since the toes are furthest away fromheart, then the variability of their form depends on the age of puberty, and also on the sexual constitution. It is worth noting that this applies to all toes, but more of a second finger. But let us not talk more about boring theories, but let's see what history tells about it.

Historical facts

In ancient Greek sculpture, the Greek type of footwas considered an aesthetic standard. The Greeks adopted this principle of the Romans. In medieval Europe, this feature of the structure of the fingers was considered a sign of aristocracy.

Morton's finger is also found in the worksBotticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and other artists and sculptors. By the way, the Statue of Liberty presented to the French people by the French people also differs in this feature.

Influence on character and sexuality

We pass to the most interesting. We will understand how the Greek foot and the character of man are related. It is believed that this foot gives its owner leadership qualities. Such people, as a rule, are active, courageous and inventive. And the longer the second finger, the more pronounced the makings of the leader. It is important not to overstep the stick, because there is a danger of turning into a tyrant that does not take into account the interests of others.

Naturally, their leadership qualities arepeople transfer to the family. No wonder that in India the mother-in-law was wary of the daughter-in-law, if the second finger was too long for them, there is a very high risk that the son will turn into a henpecked hen. The Greek foot in women says that in the family they are the main ones. It is believed, however, that women with this leg structure are unfortunate and deliver a lot of trouble to others.

With regard to sexual life, it is obvious thatthe mismatch of sexual constitutions is a problem that entails other contradictions, no less serious. It turned out that people with a long thumb have the weakest libido. In second place are those who have the same length of the first and second fingers. Well, champions are considered to be those whose second finger is issued over a large by 3-10 mm. Of course, you can not choose a partner based only on this feature. But it will partly help you find someone with a similar constitution.

Roman foot. Character and sexuality

Unlike the Greek foot, the Roman foot is characterized by an almost identical length of the first and second fingers. Further the line of fingers goes downward, but without sharp changes.

Holders of such fingers are straightforward, possesssimple, even temperament. For the sake of achieving the goal, they are able to "chisel into one point" for a long time, regardless of the difficulties. These qualities are the secret of their success. People with a Roman foot are distinguished by an average level of sexuality and are not inclined to violent manifestations of passion.

Egyptian foot. Character and sexuality

We'll figure out how the Greek foot and the Egyptian foot differ. The Egyptian foot is characterized by a uniform decrease in the length of the fingers from the large to the little finger.

Greek foot character

People who have this type of foot are distinguished by their emotionality, kindness, trustfulness and romanticism. They are the quietest people.

Lifting the foot and character

Now that we have sorted out the shape of the foot, there ismeaning to look at its vault. This can be important. So, people with a high rise of the foot are innate leaders, they have a strong character and good memory. Unfortunately, they often hear accusations of incontinence and unscrupulousness in their address. Low rise of the foot indicates that its owner depends on someone else's opinion, is ready for compromise, somewhat dependent, but communicative and soft in communication.

The influence of the shape of the heel on the character

Now let's see how the shape affects the characterheels. People with narrow or small heels differ refinement, impracticality and some isolation from reality. Their brethren with wide heels are reliable and practical. They are absolute realists. Personal safety and security of loved ones is always on the first place. If the heel is too wide, perhaps its owner lacks a sense of security and stability.

Speakers at the foot of the heel speak of concernman for his future, the future of the family and children. Holders of such heels do not like changes and try to avoid them or at least to postpone them. Being in a constant emotional tension, they begin to like to drag their feet, which leads to coarsening of the skin on the heels. This is a sign of the desire to isolate yourself from life's problems and fear of life.

The color of the feet can tell a lot not only about the nature of the person, but also about his health. So, pale feet say that their wearer is tired, exhausted and deprived of vital energy.

Red feet can talk about problems inpersonal or social life, the accumulation of negative emotions and unspoken feelings that only exacerbate the situation, especially if a person does not think about the true causes of their troubles.
