All the fingers have three phalanges each. The first phalange represents mind world; the middle, abstract and the base phalange represents baser work.
All these phalanges are not of equal length but comparatively increase in length from top to bottom. These three phalanges denote whether the qualities of the mounts underneath excel in mental or abstract that i.e., material or baser world.
When the top phalanges are most developed idealism, emotionalism and mental approach is prominent generally or particularly.
When the middle phalanges are most developed business sides of the mounts are most developed and the native displays common sense at every plain, be it home, profession, business, service, friends. He earns a good living by appealing and appeasing the persons in his environment and is endowed with pronounced money making abilities.
When the baser phalanges are most developed, the person is a sensualist seeking gratification of appetite and luxury. He has great love for eating, drinking, merrying and sleeping. He cares only to make money for baser needs and enjoyments. The more pronounced the thickness of third phalanges, the more these lower traits get strengthened.
When the third phalanges are narrow than thick, the person eats only to live and displays his strength in business or mental world. He thinks that money is not only for purchasing and pleasures rather spends it on gratification of his mental appetites. He basically is of inquisitive mind, which is an added force to spatulate fingers. With narrow base phalanges on long fingers one may be an investigator. Summarily this person cares little for money, eats little but is an enquiring and curious mind.
