A study claims you can tell your heritage from the shape of your feet, so take a look and discover where your ancestors originally came from.
Skeptical? Then here are some facts that can help support the feet shape / roots relation.
Fact 1: Human genome determine several physical factors as skin, hair and eye color, shape of body and limbs, and so many more from baldness to disease tendencies.
Fact 2: Human Morphology is heritage dependent. (anthropometry)
Fact 3: There are other studies that revealed endemic tribal / family characteristics, like lack of fingerprints (adermatoglyphia) E.g.: in an outstanding number of Basque peoples.
Fact 4: We must consider mixed origins, since almost all races have mixed along the past 500 years. Very few and rare are the supposed “pure” lineages.
But that’s not all. There is more to discovering your ancestors origins.
According to author Jane Sheehan who wrote “Let’s read Our Feet” indicates more than your origin.
“It’s all about analyzing 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 to the UK’s The Telegraph .
