It’s long been said you can tell a lot about someone from the size of their feet. Well now, thanks to this info graphic, you can size someone up by studying their toes.
This interesting diagram above from KuvatON.com suggests that the length of your toes denotes your ancestry.
Apparently the alignment of your feet’s digits reveals whether you hail from Greek, Egyptian, Roman, Germanic or Celtic heritage.
Don’t agree? Keep your socks on.
There’s another toe test that might tickle your fancy.
Let’s Read Our Feet author Jane Sheehan says your toe-length indicates more than your origin.
“It’s all about analysing the structure and texture and imbalances of the feet to understand someone’s emotions and personality,” she says.
“When you are angry, how do you walk? When you are happy, how do you walk? When you are depressed, how do you walk? Each of these emotions has it’s corresponding walk. Over time you can see their impact on the feet.
“Of course, it’s not just about emotions – each of these walks also has a physiological aspect too. But I’m most interested in emotions and personality.”
Ms Sheehan offered this summary.
