There is a pattern often found on the hands of medical people, which is called the medical stigmata. It is a small patch of vertical lines beneath the little finger.

People with this marking are drawn to medical or social work.

It is very common on the hands of nurses yet less common on the hands of doctors. This is interesting because it shows that some doctors choose their career path for money and prestige where as it tends to show that nurses are more emotionally involved in this choose of career.

A hand with the medical stigmata and many fine lines will turn towards social work. People who work in the natural therapies area also have this mark.

An unusual marking called the St Andrew cross is found on the hands of people who have saved the life of another.
