Did you know that your toes can actually say a whole lot about your personality? The logic behind it is the same as that behind foot reflexology, which operates on the principle that areas on your foot mirror the rest of your body.
So perhaps it’s not surprising that many foot reflexologists also believe in the power of foot reading. Take Jane Sheehan, for example, who says:
“Whip off your socks and I’ll be able to tell if you are a wild, adventurous risk-taker or if you crave stability, order and harmony in your life. I’ll also know if you’ve been over-indulging in the wine and choccie.”
The Common Foot
Also known as the ‘Roman Foot’, this foot type denotes someone with a balanced and well-proportioned body shape, typical of someone who is outgoing and sociable. Always ready to learn new things and to loves to open themselves to nw experiences. Apparently, this is a distinguishing feature of travellers, people who love to discover new cultures.
The Flame Foot
Also known as ‘Fire Foot’ or ‘Greek Foot’, the standout feature is a longer second toe than the rest of the toes – and this foot shape apparently denotes someone who is active, sporty and creative, and is enthusiastic about new ideas and other people, who in turn can encourage and motivate those around them. However, this foot owner can also be very impulsive, which can sometimes lead to excessive stress.
The Square Foot
This refers to a foot where the length of the toes, including the first or big toe, is almost the same, making a rectangular shape. It can also be called ‘Peasant Foot’ (apologies to all you square toes out there!) and apparently the owner of a foot like this likes to ponder and relentlessly examine every decision, always weighing up the positive and negative – meaning that they’re usually very practical and reliable, meaning you can really depend of those square-toed friends.
The Stretched Foot
With an elongated, tight shape, this foot features toes that are fused together and a big toe that tapers toward the top. This foot apparently belongs to peeps who are pretty private and have hidden depths… however, it means that you could be dealing with someone who often changes mood and can be quite impulsive.
But shape isn’t everything, apparently…
For example, those with small feet love life and like to have a very hectic job, while larger feet are characteristic of those with the greatest desire to succeed in new ventures. Crooked toes are a sign of surrender, long ones denote ambition, and a very large big toe symbolizes a high degree of rationality.
