What is hand analysis?
Modern hand analysis (or what some practitioners call Scientific hand Analysis) is a method of understanding the functioning of the human psyche, and individual life purpose, through fingerprint pattern intensity, hand shape and line formations. The system was developed by Richard Unger over a 50 year period. Unger’s breakthough was in seeing the hands as an overlay of two totally different maps: an energetic map that governs core drives and a personality profile that changes over time, through imprinting, habitual thinking, personal growth and other factors.
