What is the Greek foot?


Did you know that a person’s character can be determined not only by the lines on the palm, the color of the eyes, the shape of the ears, but also by the structure of the legs? Do not believe? Then read on.

In the structure of the human foot, there are three types: Greek foot, Egyptian and Roman. Let's start with the first.


The structure of the Greek foot

Usually the length of the toes of most people is such that they are located along the descending line of the relatively big toe. However, there are exceptions - people who have a second finger longer than the first. This type is called “Greek”.


According to statistics, the Greek foot is found only in 10% of the world's population, and its prevalence is uneven. Thus, the Swedes have a similar leg structure in only 3% of cases, while in the Ain people inhabiting the Japanese islands - almost 90%.

In medicine, this phenomenon is called the “finger of Morton” in honor of Dudley D. Morton, an American orthopedic surgeon, who first described it. In orthopedics, it is considered a deviation from the norm, but, despite this, usually does not cause any inconvenience, except with the selection of shoes.


The formation of the Greek foot is genetically determined. But how strongly the symptom will be expressed depends on the rate of puberty. There is a theory that the length of the fingers depends on the age of closure of the tubular bones. It is believed that the farther the tubular bones are from the heart, the earlier and faster they close during puberty.

Since the toes are located furthest from the heart, the variability of their shape depends on the age of puberty, as well as on the sexual constitution. It is worth noting that this applies to all the toes, but to a greater degree the second finger. But let's not talk more about boring theories, but see what history says about it.


Historical facts

In ancient Greek sculpture, the Greek type of foot was considered an aesthetic standard. The Greeks adopted this principle by the Romans. In medieval Europe, this feature of the structure of the fingers was considered a sign of aristocracy.

Morton's finger is also found in the works of Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and other artists and sculptors. By the way, the Statue of Liberty presented by the French to the people of the USA is also distinguished by this feature.

Impact on character and sexuality

We turn to the most interesting. Let us see how the Greek foot and the character of a person are connected. It is believed that such a foot gives its owner leadership qualities. Such people are usually active, courageous and resourceful. And the longer the second finger, the more pronounced the makings of a leader. Here it is important not to bend the stick, because there is a danger of becoming a tyrant who does not take into account the interests of others.

Naturally, such people transfer their leadership qualities to the family. It’s not for nothing that the mother-in-laws in India were wary of daughters-in-law if their second finger was too long - the risk is too high that the son will turn into a henpecked. The Greek foot of women suggests that they are central to the family. It is believed, however, that women with such a leg structure are unlucky and cause a lot of trouble for others.

With regard to sexual life, it is obvious that the discrepancy between sexual constitutions is a problem that entails other contradictions, no less serious. It turned out that people with a long thumb have the weakest libido. In second place, those with the length of the first and second fingers are about the same. Well, the champions are those whose second finger is 3-10 mm above the thumb. Of course, you can not choose a partner based only on this feature. But he can partly help you find a person with a similar constitution.

Roman foot. Character and sexuality

Unlike the Greek foot, the Roman foot is characterized by almost the same length of the first and second fingers. Next, the line of fingers goes downward, but without sharp drops.


Holders of such fingers are straightforward, have a simple, even temper. For the sake of achieving the goal, they are able to “hammer at one point” for a long time, in spite of difficulties. These qualities are the secret of their success. People with Roman foot differ in the average level of sexuality and are not inclined to violent manifestations of passion.

Egyptian foot. Character and sexuality

Let us see what is the difference between the Greek foot and the Egyptian foot. For the Egyptian foot is characterized by a uniform decrease in the length of the fingers from the big to the little finger.


People with a foot of this type are distinguished by emotionality, kindness, gullibility and romance. This is the most peaceful people.

Foot lift and character

Now that we have understood the shape of the foot, it makes sense to look at its arch. This may be important. So, people with high elevation of the foot are natural leaders, they have a strong character and a good memory. Unfortunately, they often hear accusations of incontinence and lack of principle in their address. The low rise of the foot suggests that its owner depends on the opinions of others, is ready for compromise, is somewhat independent, but sociable and soft in communication.

Influence of heel shape on character

Now let's see how the heel shape affects the character. People with narrow or small heels are distinguished by sophistication, impracticality and some isolation from reality. Their breasts with wide heels are reliable and practical. They are absolute realists. Personal safety and the safety of those close to them always comes first. If the heel is too wide, perhaps its owner lacks a sense of security and stability.

The heels of the heels speak of a man’s concern for his future, the future of his family and children. Holders of such heels do not like change and try to avoid them or at least postpone. Being in a constant emotional tension, they begin to woo as if they drag their legs, which leads to a coarsening of the skin on the heels. This is a sign of a desire to isolate oneself from life problems and the fear of life.


What does the skin color of the feet?

The color of the skin of the feet can tell a lot not only about the person’s character, but also about his health. So, pale feet say that their owner is tired, exhausted and deprived of vital energy.

Red feet can talk about problems in personal or social life, the accumulation of negative emotions and unspoken feelings that only exacerbate the situation, especially if a person does not think about the true causes of their troubles.

Blue feet talk about the pain and suffering that a person is experiencing. In such a situation, it may seem to him that life wants to break it and nothing good will ever happen to him.

Yellowing of the foot partially or completely says that the person is on the edge in some situation or relationship. Fully yellowed foot is a sign of intense fatigue from life. If the calluses turn yellow, then the person is faced with obstacles to expressing his feelings.
