Finger nodes - what exactly are they and what do they mean? If you look at your fingers from the nail side (the side facing up, when you are typing on the computer), you will find knot-like series of lines at the joints, between the phalanges. Or you won't find any lines - in both cases, your hands are trying to tell you something.
Upper node. Also called the first node, it is closest to the nail. This is the philosophical node, related to ideas.
Lower node. This is the materialistic node, which deals with the material world.
Nodular joints. If the nodes are visible on a particular joint, then it is called a nodular joint.
Smooth joints. If the lines of the joints are not that visible, then they are called smooth joints.
Now, if we combine the 4 types of finger tips, both types of nodes on both joints, we will get 16 personality types. Which one are you?
Pointed fingers, both joints smooth. We find poetry of the heart and soul here. Ecstatic religious feelings might also be present, as well as love for that which is beautiful. These fingers are considered fingers of the psyche, even though we also find unorganized thoughts and actions, and often incorrigible laziness.
Pointed fingers, nodular upper joint, smooth lower joint. There is a battle between inspiration and thought in these people. In other words, the believer begins to doubt. The poet loses a part of his genius. This also has a positive aspect - the inspiration is used more effectively for completing a job.
Pointed fingers, smooth upper joint, nodular lower joint. Here, the artistic potentialities are overruled by the tendency for practicality. An artist or poet will be better off financially but will be far from his true ideals. Did someone say sellout?
Pointed fingers, both joints nodular. The person moves away from his higher ideals in order to deal with reality. These personalities are often inventors or discoverers. They are at peace with their inner soul. It must be noted that pointed fingers are a rarity, and nodular joints on pointed fingers are almost never encountered.
Conical fingers, both joints smooth. In contrast to the previous examples, the poetic gift is better felt here. The person is aiming to cultivate beauty in its physical form but hates cold, hard logic and loves freedom in thoughts and manners.
Conical fingers, nodular upper joint and smooth lower joint. The artist is dominated by practical motives. He calculates his efforts and aims for success in achieving particular goals. These types of fingers can be found in the hands of all talented musicians, actors.

All those who have square fingers (regardless of nodes) are independent to a certain degree and are usually honest. They are strong and reasonable.
