In examining human behavior one is constantly faced with dualism. Neither the body nor the mind is perfectly symmetrical. Take the thumb print. It is not unusual to find two closely patterned thumb prints. But it is also not unusual to see two mismatched thumb prints. The typical mismatched thumb prints are the loop and the whorl. In my studies based upon over thirty years of experience and including many thousands of interviews, the whorls on the thumb indicate the competitor. This person who hates to loose. The loop indicates the person who hates to fight, who would rather cooperate. My studies indicate these mismatched people have a slight coordination discordance. I kid them and say their golf drive will either hook or slice or their two handed free throw will go off the rim so they need to shoot with one hand. It is like two people who are not synchronous in trying to control the body.

Other aspect tend to show this dual aspect representing possible discordant brain lobes or poor connections through the corpus callosum or both. The head lines, which indicate some thinking patterns, frequently are not mirrored. Indeed the two hand often present considerable contrast. One side may be very dreamy while the other side very linear of practical. The heart line shows similar possible conflicts. My own hands mirror such patterns, showing strong interest in the physical attributes of the opposite sex while wanting to live with a more intellectual partner as shown by the other hand.. Relationships can be tough when what you are attracted to is not who you want to live with.

My research along with that of others has indicated each hand behavioral correspondence, left or right, appears to follow the location, and family or stranger group connection or activity. Where the thumb prints are mismatched, I typically tell my client, don't work out of your home, or completely separate the work space from the home; students, don't do you homework at home. Do it in study hall or Stabucks. Doing the work or homework will take the edge of your work product or brings conflict into the home where it may be unnatural in your interaction with family, or vise versa..

It is unnatural to try to turn these drives off. We are born with the print and the patterns are detectable early in the second trimester in the womb. Line feature begin to develop about eight weeks into pregnancy, long before movement of the hand is detected. So these tendencies are set into our basic personalities. We are not born as tabula rasas. Sometimes the mismatches compliment each other, but often they can set up real or potential conflicts. That should make psychologists and mental health counselors very happy, and perhaps be a boon to the pharmaceutical industry producing palliatives, with a constant supply of new born patients. Actually, most come to live with their inner conflicts quite comfortably, especially as they come to understand them. They provide a path or ladder to self actualization.

But the condition has raised another interesting question for the spiritually inclined. Perhaps even more so if one believes in reincarnation, past lives and pe-existing souls. What if we came into life not as one soul, but two new souls tasked to work togther and produce a new joined soul. Or what if we were not a reborn soul, but were two souls with the challenge of forming a new life, perhaps a new soul? The idea is not new as dual souls have been accepted in traditional Chinese cultures, by several Finno-Ugric peoples and by some Inuit groups.
While that may keep you up for a few hours of contemplation, it would follow current acceptance of cellular memory and genetic inheritances.

Of course, as life forms we do come in with two inheritances from four inheitances ad infinatum. So in cellular memory we bring multiple genetic strains with us when we emerge from the womb. Are we multiple souls inhabiting the same body.. But what would such ideas do with our prejudices, feelings of superiority, special entitlements and of morality for example? Anything? Could they lead to a more tolerant and fairer world?
