"Other finger prints are looped, denoting a good team worker who enjoys the stimulation of new ideas and will enjoy the arts, particularly dance or movement. The ring finger print could mean she is a bit of a faddy-eater andor have an interest in design and decor. Her favourite colour is red.
"The double life line means she has great resilience, can plan well and work long hours. Her weakness is a bit of a perfectionist streak. This person's pride in her work is high, and she hates to underachieve. She was successful at college or university with a slight doubt about direction at 19.
"The squaring of lines under the index finger often shows a teachery quality and the curving headline a love of language and books. This person would have an extensive and well-used personal library.
"Other lines around the life line suggest a marriage around age 24. Only one child line is discernible from the print. She probably took up other studies from 35 to about 40. The job she has had over the past two years has given her the independence and focus she had been seeking."

"I don't have an extensive library. I don't have children and I'm not that interested in music compared to most people. I'm not a faddy eater and I'm not secretive. But the bit about being a perfectionist in my work is spot on."
