Have you ever imagined learning more about a person's character by looking at their finger prints?
On 702's #NightTalk, Gugs Mhlungu and Sizwe Dhlomo spoke to chiropologist Dr Silvana Smith, who described how this is possible through the practice of chiropology.
I take prints of the hand, and I analyse those finger print patterns, the lines. I also look at the shape, the nails and such things. From that I can tell the person about their medical background, their relationships, their career... and really give them some guidance on whatever questions they have or what they are looking for— Dr Silvana Smith, chirologist
Dr Smith says that there is meaning behind people's finger prints.
She says that even the United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has used this measure to profile criminals from finger print patterns.
It's like when a child is born and a doctor opens the child's hand. The reason he does that, he looks for the three lines on the hand, the life line, the head line and the heart line. If those are present, then the doctor knows that the child is fine— Dr Silvana Smith, chirologist
According to Dr Smith, personality types can also be determined by the kind of finger prints a person has.
Dr Smith says she has encountered many sceptics of the chiropology, but is adamant of its impact.
