If you have a long straight headline that goes almost
to the edge of your palm but not over it, you’re built better than
the rest of us for multi-tasking. Still it doesn’t mean
this good for you!
(See blog on the dangers of multitasking titled:
Are you trying to cook this and read your dinner at the same time? )
What is a HAL headline?
This is a gift marker first identified by Richard Unger of the International Institute of Hand Analysis.
Unger named this headline after Hal 9000, the super computer in the movie, “2001:
A Space Odyssey” (back in the days when AI was pure science fiction)
This marker indicates special multi-tasking capabilities, an octopus-like brain: analytical, data collecting and very resourceful.
If this is you, you need a big, complex job to keep your brain busy . Like the computer called HAL, you need many problem solving situations and lots of mental stimulation to to stay happy, otherwise boredom kicks in and you risk self destructing.
Most people under 42 who have this marker are still in the “shadow side” of this gift marker: under employment leads to boredom and dissatisfaction which could lead to creating tangled webs in your personal life to keep your mind occupied.

will affect everyone around you.
* Use your gift or risk self destructing by creating problems that don’t exist.
