X-Lines On Hands
- Percentage Of People Who Have It: 3%
Everyone has lines on their hands, but the way those lines look will vary widely among literally everyone. Yet for some, the way their lines look will be very different. For some, there is a rare phenomenon where the letter “X” will be formed on BOTH hands. The writer of this very article actually has this exact genetic trait. For the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, there were many meanings behind the “X-Hands.” They used to believe it was a sign of strong character or that a person was destined for greatness.
Of course, “palmistry,” or the foretelling of the future using a person’s palms, is complete garbage. It means nothing to have an “X” on your hands. However, it is still one of the world’s rare genetic traits as only 3% of the human population has this. This might differ a bit among our primate friends such as chimps or great apes. To be fair, it made sense to think the “X” meant something as Alexander the Great among other leaders in history had this “X” letter on both hands. Therefore, there “might” be something to it.
