No, this isn't what we mean. This means that wherever you are, you're probably alerting the bartender you're not old enough to drink alcohol. No, we're talking about palmistry. Your hands might say more about you than you thought.
Palmistry began in ancient India and spread to other areas of the world, where palmistry paintings were found in caves in Egypt, Greece, China and other parts of Europe. You've got your marriage line, your money line, your life line - basically every line on your palm means something. Sounds confusing, doesn't it?
Well, fortunately we won't have to worry about all those hundreds of other lines that make up your palms. What we're looking for is just one particular marking on your palm. See the "X" on these palms? Check it out and see if you have one on either or both of your palms.
Have you spotted it yet? Some people have an "X" on one palm, some people have it on both. If you have it on both, well, you're one of the three percent of other people in the world who do. The STI University in Moscow, Russia, wrote a paper called "X Palm Mystery and Spirit Science Formula" which studied individuals with the "X" on their palms.
People who have the "X" on their hands are destined to be leaders, and are naturally born with the characteristics that will get them there. They've been known to achieve their success quickly. This is likely due to the drive that they possess that gets them there.
Beside Alexander the Great and Lincoln, President Obama's hands also display the "X." It only makes sense, considering these people are known to have high capacities for leadership. So our former president was among the three percent.
You've also got a high sense of intuition if you've got those rare x's. You always seem to be one step ahead of the game, and people wonder how you do it. If you've got a gut feeling, you tend to trust it, and it also tends to be right.
Do people know you for being particularly blunt? Your desire to tell the truth might be because of those "X" marks on your hands. Not only do you know when other people are lying, but you yourself like to be as honest as possible as well.
Those with the "X" on their palms also tend to have more of a claim to fame than other people. These are the people that are going to have their name up in lights, or not be forgotten after they've passed on. They're the people with a legacy to give to the world.
So you know you've got a great sense of intuition and are going to be a leader somewhere, or maybe you are already. But you've also got a great sense of humor and quick wit. All those people with "X" on their palms don't let anything get past them.
In addition to everything else, these types of individuals are also always throwing out a lot of positive energy. Perhaps this is how they're so easily able to rise to success. When something doesn't go their way, they're not down for the count for long, and can bounce right back again.
Something to watch for? Humility. Alright, you "X" palm people, we know you're pretty great. But don't let it get to your head. Humility is important, especially when you're in a position of leadership, so be sure to practice it.
So, are you one of these three percent? Or are you like the other 97 percent of the rest of us over here? Don't worry, just because you don't have those x's doesn't mean you can't be successful, too. You've just got to work a little harder to beat out those lucky "X" people.
