My Double Simian Line

A simian line is the singular horizontal crease on the palm created by the merging of the head line and the heart line. It’s not palmistry, my love. It’s dermatoglyphics, psychodiagnostic chirology and physiology. Yes, I had to throw you those omg!hyphaluting!scientific words so I won’t sound so new age.

Because the line is a combination of the heart and the head, it is believed that bearers find it difficult to separate thoughts from emotions. They are overly-focused to the extent of excluding everything else. It is interesting to note, however, that half the individuals with Downe Syndrome have simian lines. Pwned.

Characteristics of “simian-lined people”

1. Intense. So much so that people often assume that they’re angry.
2. Complex, forceful, goal-oriented, and egocentric. LOL.

    i have a double simian line too and i wanna know what that means. your articlie did help but its dont really answering what i would like to know. i what to know what comes from a double simian line in the future.

  11. I have a simian line on my right hand.I got a great link which talks a lot about the simian line. . It is commonly said that the simian line is associated with Down’s syndrome. What I think is that if you have a simian line and no Down’s syndrome you do have some of the physical traits of a person afflicted by it. But as far as your cognitive abilities are concerned, you go to the other extreme; you are very very intelligent. The two most common things that I have discovered about Simian’s (both normal and the ones affected by Down’s syndrome) is that they are very keen observers and also excel to a very high degree in sports,arts,music,theatre,acting and the like.
