  • People who recently started wearing a new jewel usually touch it (and adjust it) a lot. The same goes for recently removed jewels.
  • Dark rings under the eyes and no other signs of lack of sleep may indicate the person has allergies which have been troubling them lately.
  • The letter E is the most used one in the English language. When cracking a secret code, the one symbol that appears the most is most likely an E.
  • People who were in marching bands for a long time usually start walking with their left foot when they hear music playing.
  • Nail biting can be an indication of low esteem or self-destructive tendencies.
  • A pianist’s hands have well-developed muscles and the middle finger tends to curve towards the ring finger.
  • When looking at a person’s handwriting, you can tell how much they like being noticed. Large, bold handwriting indicates that the person enjoys being the center of attention, while small handwriting indicates a desire to be unnoticed. Medium sized handwriting can indicate that they prefer to just “fit in”.
  • A person is more likely to be actually listening to you if their eyes are roaming about your face, or even watching hand gestures, and not staring into your eyes or at one feature the entire time.
  • Just because a person doesn’t look tired, it doesn’t mean they aren’t. Losing trains of thought, being unable to articulate what they mean to say, staring off into space, or a general lack of interest in things all strongly indicates that the person has not had enough sleep. So the next question is, what were they doing last night to prevent sleep?
  • There are a few ways you can tell if someone has had martial arts training in the past: 1st: if you can see them walk around barefoot they will walk more on the blades (outsides) of their feet (heel-blade-toes); 2nd: the way they move their hands when they are talking – martial artists have thumbs slightly tucked in towards the palm, the fingers are never really straight and will have a slight bend in the middle knuckles; 3rd: depending on how dedicated they were, the outside or ridge of their hands and their proximal phalanges on their index and middle fingers (base knuckles) could be slightly calloused from repetitive striking of objects.

“If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.”

― William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

  • Recent or current presence of cats or dogs is indicated by bite or scratch marks on furniture and people and hair clinging to exposed fibrous materials.
  • Who wears long sleeves and pants on hot days? People with something to hide – usually a wound or a tattoo. The next question is: why are they hiding it?
  • Women who wear high heels more often usually have shorter strides than women who don’t.
  • An avid violinist will usually have a bruise on the left side of their neck.
  • Walking speed is proportional to pressure placed on the toe, and thus can be observed through a footprint. A slow gait will have a greater indentation at the back, a fast one at the front. A runner’s footprint won’t have any heel print at all.
  • A golf player will often have a slightly less tanned left hand, due to the glove they wear.
  • A wallet with slits along the sides of the most easily accessible card slot often belongs to a regular commuter. Thin train tickets do not bulge the slots, but can cause frequent small damage to the wallet.
  • A liar tends to give too much detail within their lies; little unnecessary things they think will convince you their story is true.
  • People who usually wear glasses have marks on the sides of the nose’s bridge, left there by the nose pads.
  • Long, detailed and insistent excuses are an indicator of premeditated lies. People who used time to come up with an excuse don’t want to waste their time. (Or, generally: when people begin in error, they continue in error.)
