In the second study I studied the hands of one hundred people from Abarbanel Hospital, half of whom were hospitalized schizophrenics and the other half a random sample of healthy staff people. The results appear in my book: The Hand: The Mirror of the Soul. The distinct statistical results of these two studies show that, according to defined parameters, chirology can help in identifying serious mental and emotional problems.
In these two studies, I found the ability to identify suicidal tendencies through diagnostic chirology as very important. In fact, it was this quest that propelled me to undertake these research projects. In my book I also relate to important findings regarding the matter of suicide prediction.
