What Your Feet Reveal About You: Myth or Fact?

Have you ever heard that having the 2nd toe longer than the big toe is a sign of nobility. WPST, a radio station in Princeton, New Jersey, recently aired what a person's feet may reveal about them:

  • If a person's second toe is longer than the others, they are dependable, conservative and keep their emotions in check.
  • If a person's third toe is bigger than the others, they're hot-headed and have a temper.
  • If a person has long toes, they're among the thinkers of the world.
  • If a person's feet are wide, they're a hard worker and have strong family values.
  • If a person's feet are narrow, they're shy and quiet.
  • If a person has webbed feet (a hereditary trait), they're the life of the party and would make a good salesperson or entertainer.

While all this is entertaining, many people are just plain embarrassed by their feet, a problem that proper foot care can go a long way to solving. Recommendations from foot care experts include:

  • Thoroughly wash and dry feet daily
  • Gently massage feet daily, to improve circulation
  • Throw out old shoes
  • Throw out uncomfortable shoes that could cause corns, bunions and calluses
  • Change socks and shoes twice daily
  • Throw out old nail polish
  • Every person should have their own nail implements, not to be shared with others
  • Periodically place shoes or slippers in a sunny place where they can air out
  • If you have diabetes, or are concerned about your feet, consult a podiatrist
