What do your nails say about your personality?

A study from the Dermatology Division of the Department of Medicine at the University College Hospital in Ibadan, Nigeria, says the following about fingernail shapes and personality traits:

  • Fan shaped or Triangle shaped with the point down (wider at tip), are associated with a personality that is anxious and high strung.

  • Almond or Triangle point up (wider at base) are associated with a personality that is gentle, creative, more refined, and emotionally sensitive.

  • Broad and square fingernails reveal an ‘easy going, calm, honest, patient, upright, balanced and broad minded person.’

  • Tall rectangle – Long fingernails are reported to mean that the character will be prone to selfishness and narrow-mindedness.

  • Square fingernails are relatively equal in length and width, and reveal a person who can be ‘tight-fisted, mean, and stingy.’ This shape of fingernails also reveals a tendency towards impatience and quick thinking, and the shorter the fingernails, the more critical the personality.

  • Oval or round fingernail shape tends to be the most positive, open-minded, and happy. A rounded fingernail shape is creative, independent, and a quick learner.

  • C-shaped curving down – This fingernail shape indicates a personality that is hard working and has had to overcome an obstacle in the past. This fingernail shape reveals a person who is perseverant and courageous. •
