Do you have the markings of a bully buster? Look at the Inner Mars zone in the palms of your hands. One of many key words for this zone is stamina.
When looking at your Mars zone, either hand, do you see any of the following markings:
– Fullness/puffiness – Star (6 pointed asterisk) – Whorl – The start of your Head Line – Grills
Mars star in left hand (above)
Whorl in the Mars zone (above)
Head Line starts inside and below the start of the Life Line (above)
Grill/ladder effect in the Mars zone (above)
Standing up for the underdog brings fulfillment to the owner with a well marked Mars zone. Mars is the archetype for the warrior and he (or she) needs a cause, something to stand for, to protect. A star shows the gift of bravery. The whorl indicates a life purpose where his or her exceptional courage is exercised. With the Head Line starting inside the Life Line, the owner will do well to advocate for those who are unable to stand up for themselves – such as mistreated animals, foster children, or battered women – to name a few. However, if this hero-type doesn’t have an appropriate cause for all this energy, he or she just may end up feeling cowardly, or the opposite – rageful. Just like the Lion in “Wizard of Oz,” owners of one or more of the markings above must have a bold and fearless course of action to devote their enthusiasm toward.
When people ask me, “Do you see money in my hands?” I look for various indicators; one being the Fate Line. The Fate Line is also called the Saturn Line. This vertical line rising to the middle finger shows the urge to accomplish tasks through effort. Don’t you agree, to make money effort is exerted in some way, toward some aim?
In Figure 1 (below) a long, straight vertical line starts at the base of the palm and rises all the way to the top of the palm, ending under the middle finger. There are a few little breaks along the way, but overall, this indicates an organized person, with systems in place to complete tasks with perfect outcomes. The outcomes may not actually turn out perfectly, but intentions are set.
On the positive side, this person fulfills commitments and is driven by a thirst for knowledge. On the negative side, this person may take on too much responsibility and feel overly responsible for the well-being of others. When I see a vertical line in the hand like Figure 1 I say, “When you know what you want and you set your mind to something, there is no stopping you!”
THE VERTICAL LINES of the hands reveal an urge for expression of life force related to the fingers under which they lie. Each of the four lines is named according to the finger toward which it rises: Jupiter (index), Saturn (middle), Apollo (ring), and Mercury (pinkie). The lines may be short or long. There may be two or more lines beneath a single finger, or there may be none at all.
A vertical line represents the flow of sustenance and supporting strength, with the characteristics of the finger it supports, like the root of a plant. For example, a Jupiter Line extends the force of the Jupiter finger in the form of inspiration. The Saturn Line shows the owner’s yearning for effort and responsibility. The Apollo Line spotlights the creative urge, and the Mercury Line depicts the curiosity of a seeker.
When analyzing vertical lines, consider the length, quality, and quantity. Clear, deep, and long lines carry more force than short faint lines. If there are multiple vertical lines under one finger, each carries extra force of that kind. Having extra lines isn’t always better; rather, it indicates more opportunity for expression of that type of energy.
Think of these lines as electrical wiring, allowing currents of energy to flow and support the attributes of the associated fingers. The longer the vertical lines, the more energy they carry. The presence of several parallel vertical lines indicates extra energy that may appear as having too many choices to make related to the particular line. The condition of the finger itself is also significant here. The stronger and straighter the finger, above the vertical line, the better and more positively the associated characteristics will be expressed. At least, there is a potential for greater expression.
Stay tuned to learn more about the Saturn Line, AKA the Fate Line, the Career Line, and the Money Line. You can design success strategies in your life by interpreting your Line of Effort.
Following is an excerpt from my upcoming book, Your Life Is In Your Hands.
Guide for Lost Souls
The owner of a long head Line that curves deep into the palm considers ideas, thoughts, and activities that are influenced by deep meaning in life. People with this type of Head Line have felt the trap that Persephone felt after Hades kidnapped her to make her his wife. Held against her will, Persephone was trapped in the dark, dismal, gloomy underworld. If you have this deeply curving head Line, you most likely understand the feeling of depression. It doesn’t mean you are depressed but you know what it means to be depressed. Like Persephone, you have experienced despair associated with “your life not being your own.” You are sensitive and responsive to your environment, including the feelings of all beings. As Persephone matured she opened her heart to Hades and to the other lost souls ensnared in the underworld. Likewise, as you mature you develop a deep compassion for others that can develop into life work as a guide for people who have been led astray or trapped. A deeply curving head Line represents a potential path to mature into the Queen of the Underworld, handling hidden and all-consuming emotion, where reason has no place. Persephone also knew that she would return to the bright world above in spring each year. You have a genius for understanding others who enter into their own world of deep and unpredictable waters.
Long, curving Head Line, toward the wrist
After describing the implication of this type of head Line to one client, she confirmed the analysis saying, “Oh, yes, that’s me.” Unexpectedly, I dive into a very dark place. I’m used to it now, so I have a mini fridge in my room with ice cream in it. I comfort myself on my favorite fluffy bedspread with DVDs next to my TV. I do know I’ll eventually resurface to everyday life.” Persephone did resurface out of the darkness, after choosing to do so, and realized her power in the decision and in her journey.
Guide for Lost Souls Positive: I am able to be fully and completely present with deep sadness, maintain compassion, and steer others to their inner light.
Guide for Lost Souls Negative: Immobile, I remain a victim of kidnapping by hopelessness, believing I have no way out.
Mantra: I willingly open myself to deep emotion and am appropriately available to myself and other lost souls ready to “come back to life,” again, feeling joy.

When looking for a teacher in the professional healing arts, and specifically hand analysis, there are many aspects to take into consideration. High quality teachers have an extensive knowledge of the subject matter, curriculum and standards, a caring attitude, and a love of learning; experience facilitating groups of individuals and expectations, a desire to make a difference in the lives of students, and those lives who the student will touch.
– Exceptional teachers set high expectations for all students while meeting each student where she is emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.
– Exceptional teachers have clear, written-out objectives for each class and/or program. With integrity, they follow through with commitments. Students do better when they have a clear idea what to expect and receive what is expected.
– Exceptional teachers are prepared and organized. They are in their classrooms (and tele-calls) early and ready to teach. They offer homework assignments and hands-on practice plans to build subject knowledge.
– Exceptional teachers help students see differently. Effective teachers use intuition, scientific facts (reliable and repeatable data) while also asking “why” questions. Students learn better when they are challenged to look at all sides of the subject matter and are given plenty of time to ask and answer questions.
– Exceptional teachers communicate effectively, engage all students and treat each student with dignity and respect.
– Exceptional teachers form strong heart-centered relationships with their students and show that they care. They are warm, enthusiastic, considerate and caring. Students feel supported when their teachers are available to them during and outside of scheduled class time.
– Exceptional teachers are masters of their subject and spend time continuing to gain knowledge in their field of expertise. They present the material with enthusiasm and instill hunger in their students to study and practice.
– Exceptional teachers help students build confidence through praise, appropriate correction, and individualized guidance.
– Exceptional teachers pursue and exhibit life experience to support their curriculum and overall teaching objectives.
– Exceptional teachers give the student cause to be both fulfilled and delighted about the learning institution or academy where they are or have been taught.
– Exceptional teachers gratefully acknowledge their sources of content and pay homage to their revered teachers and mentors.
A blast from the past; in my newsletter released May 19, 2009
Momentous Life Change
Embracing the Mystery
A significant change was set into motion, for me, this past week. After twenty-three years working for Boeing, I am switching ‘careers’. The security of a bi-weekly paycheck will cease to exist on June 18, 2009. That symbol of regularity, reliability and ‘safety’ is being replaced with the adventure of the unknown. I will embrace the mystery of life in a new way.
This is a huge step for me, when I consider where I began. I was lovingly influenced, by a financially lacking and divorced mother to work, plan, study, learn, and create financial independence. I remember one early evening vividly. My mother was outside, pounding her clinched fists on the cinder block wall of our house screaming, “I hate this house, I hate this house!” I think I was around eleven years old. Home maintenance requirements and expended personal energy hence triggered her advice to avoid those troubling situations. From that early age, I was, in a sense, traumatized by her material fixation, the lack, and the emotional pain. That was when I started working. Baby-sitting initiated my resume. I needed to work and earn money to avoid the potential agony related to being ‘without’.
Now at age forty-five, after doing my ‘time’ in the corporation, I’m pursuing my dream, my love, my calling. A calling is what our inner voice compels us to Be. We only need to listen. Monkey-mind chatter and outside influences are insistent and must be managed if we are to listen, hear and heed the call of our inner identity.
Through this change process, I discovered a level of courage I hadn’t experienced before. I contemplated the idea and mentally prepared for this change for the last three years. I created an ‘exit plan’ and used all of the healing tools I have been exposed to as well as re-reading teaching ‘detachment’ and ‘inquiry’.
Intention to honor our heart’s desire often goes against the grain of mainstream thinking. When I began telling people I was planning to leave Boeing I got responses like “Are you crazy?”, “In a time like this?”, “Can you make it financially doing your healing practice?” “It’s not a good time to quit your job!” and “You’ve got balls when so many people don’t have jobs.” After I shifted my attitude from fear to love; love for my ‘calling’ I received amazing support from my friends and colleagues.
So now, I’m thrilled to announce myself as a full-time Guide for Positive Change. This work parallels that of a trail guide, one who leads the way for other pioneering and adventuring souls. I knew, from deep within, 5 years ago that I wanted to be an outstanding Hand Analyst – to read and decode the fingerprint patterns and reveal the life purpose and life lesson to the owner of the hands. I announced it loudly and confidently on the first day of my Year Long Hand Analysis training program. Then two years ago I found EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and like-wise, fell in love with this modality for emotional, mental and physical balance and release. And most recently, I began practicing Reiki. Reiki, pronounced ray – key, is in an ancient Japanese method of stress reduction and relaxation. All modalities are being integrated into my practice. I also conduct workshops for personal empowerment. I want to offer methods to help everyone get to their own personal truth, in their own way, in their own time. We’re doing it together – deeply and completely.
I am ever grateful to my Mom, Rosemary, who introduced me to astrology and my first book on palm reading. Her metaphysical interest also guided me to The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes and the Vedanta. I suppose her struggles sent her on the search to understand ‘it all’ and her essence has definitely overflowed to me. “Hooray for our side” she used to say.
The Heart Line – Relationship symbols, stories and strategies Part II
by Kay Packard
“The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart.” Rumi
A relationship works best when you attend to the beauty of the relationship. You can deepen your understanding of your own and someone else’s essential love style by deciphering one line in the hand—the Heart Line. In Part I of The Heart Line, I covered the Hermit Heart Line. Today, lets identify the Passionate and the Big Heart Heart Lines and understand the non-negotiable needs they reveal in relationship.
Four Steps to Analyzing the Heart Line
Step 1. Locate the Heart Line carved in your hands.
Step 2. Starting on the outside edge of the palm, follow the line and note in which section of the imaginary quadrant your Heart Line ends.
Step 3. Read the associated descriptions.
Heart Line Styles
Identification: The Heart Line starts on the outer edge of the palm under the pinkie finger and runs horizontally across the palm. The line may be straight or curved and long or short. It usually ends somewhere beneath the middle or index finger. Any Heart Line style is possible on a hand. You may also find a different Heart Line on each hand.
Heart Line Shapes
The shape of the Heart Line indicates preferred characteristics when relating to others and corresponds to sections in an imaginary quadrant, as we will see in Fig. 1. Curvy lines belong to expressive people who typically show their feelings easily. The Big Heart and the Passionate types have curvy lines. They exhibit their feelings more than those with flat or straight Heart Lines. Straight lines belong to people who are more reserved. They present their feelings reluctantly. The Hermit and the Rational Romantic types have flat Heart Lines. They are less likely to display their emotions outwardly.
The Heart Line Quadrant
As illustrated in Part I, the imaginary quadrant has four sections (see fig. 1 below). To position the quadrant, on one hand at a time, draw an imaginary line straight down between the index and middle finger. Next draw an imaginary horizontal line across the vertical line about half an inch from base of fingers. Now, determine which section your Heart Line ends.
Fig. 1 Assigned names depending on section of the quadrant where the Heart Line terminates
Names are assigned to the Heart Line type depending on which section the Heart Line ends. Look to see in which section of the quadrant your Heart Line ends on both hands.
Fig. 2 The Passionate Heart
The Passionate Heart Line curves up toward the middle finger (Fig. 2). It touches the top of the palm and ends in the upper right section of the quadrant under the middle finger. The dotted arrow shows a piece of the Heart Line but it is not considered when determining the termination point of this Heart Line.
If you are the Passionate Heart, you are likely enthusiastic, expressive and even flirtatious. You have the charisma to be the life of the party. Your natural design is like the campfire, attracting people to warmth. It’s crucial for you to express your wants, even when others might not seem to appreciate your directness. You tend to be happiest, when you do expose your desires. Your biggest challenge is being stuck with people you consider boring. You can be so intense that when you feel something passionately, it shows. A word of caution though—that little campfire can turn into a forest fire if its not contained. I remind the Passionate Heart to display his or her wildest passions and be considerate of the needs of others. At your best you bring an excitement and charisma to the scene. Your challenge is to remember the emotional needs of others.
Affirm: I am claiming my desires and expressing my passion with grace and consideration.
The Big Heart
Fig. 3 The Big Heart section of the quadrant
The Big Heart curves up toward the index finger. It touches the top of the palm and ends in the upper section of the quadrant under the index finger or closer to the index finger than the middle finger (In Fig. 2 see the arrow between the index and middle fingers).
If you are the Big Heart, you feel emotions keenly and are warmhearted, caring and nurturing of others. You like connecting with other people and animals. Your favorite song might be All You Need is Love by the Beatles. My friend Kit calls the owner of this line “The Sweet Heart.” Your natural design is like a water droplet that joins the pool at the base of a waterfall. Seeing others bond during a special gathering warms your heart. Your feelings are hurt if people suddenly disconnect with you or you witness detachment and conflict between loved ones. Your biggest challenge is to nurture yourself along with others and not fall victim to emotional sell-out. If, in your view, someone disconnects from you abruptly, you might take it personally and become overly critical of yourself, blaming yourself (or another) for the separation. I remind the Big Heart to look at the truth of the change or separation in the relationship to help you accept yourself and all your feelings in all stages of the relationship. At your best you help people feel loved and cared for while also spending some time alone nurturing yourself. On a bad day, you can easily lose yourself in the drama of others and feel like a victim.
Affirm: I am the love I seek and long to embody.
No Heart Line is better than another. What’s important is to register and claim your natural love style. I’ve seen troubles brew when someone thinks he or she should behave like a snail when really he or she is a gazelle.
Watch for Part III coming next – The Rational Romantic and a few other variations.

Many of us have learned to protect our hearts from hurt. There is one particular configuration of the Heart Line that illustrates a serious protector of the heart. I’d like to share another excerpt from my upcoming book, Your Life is in Your Hands, in the spirit of deep inner awareness and personal empowerment.
Sometimes you’ll find extra lines running in parallel along the main Heart Line. See Fig. 1, below, with the arrow pointing to the formation on the Heart Line. Additional horizontal lines, bordering the Heart Line show a determination to protect the heart, like an invisible suit of armor. If you see this configuration in either or both of your hands, you have a deep-seated need to keep your heart safe from being hurt. You may find yourself preserving the silent belief that potential pain is to be avoided at all cost. Extra parallel lines act as a shield and represent available and dependable reinforcement.
If you don’t own this design, but wish to better understand a friend who does, imagine a time in your life when your heart was shattered. Can you imagine being at the altar preparing to be married to the love of your life and your fiancé doesn’t show up? Maybe your father gave more attention to his new wife (your step-mother) than to you, at a time you really needed it? Perhaps you had a puppy that was tragically run over by the garbage truck at five years old, like mine was. I don’t have this configuration, but I certainly understand the depth of that painful loss.
Where you find this configuration (Fig. 1) you’ll find that the pain-memory in the heart is so deep and the emotional loss so unbearable that a bulletproof vest is created around the heart to prevent that kind of blindsiding pain, again. Opening the heart takes tremendous courage and trust that recovery is possible, if hurt – again. The downside of this marking is many missed opportunities for deeper love, as life continues. It doesn’t mean the owner won’t or doesn’t love, but the fear of hurt can get in the way of more fulfilling love. The upside possibility is that the owner recognizes his or her internal barrier and comes into realization that she IS SAFE to move into love at her own pace.
If you, or someone you know, wear emotional armor, I suggest this positive affirmation: With conscious intention and courage, in full balance, I am appropriately opening to deeper levels of love. Even though it’s scary, the truth is, Iam safe to love.

Relationship symbols, stories and strategies – Part I
How to successfully navigate your relationship roadmap
It is for love that the whole universe sprang into existence and it is for the sake of love that it is kept going. – Meher Baba Discourses Vol. I
You can deepen your understanding of your own and someone else’s essential love style by reading one line in the hand—the Heart Line. Relationships consume the majority of our waking life, and we have hundreds of opportunities every day to connect with other people. We relate with our mates, children, parents, grandparents, siblings, co-workers, subordinates, bosses, business partners, and more. Our best relationship starts with ourselves. The little knowledge you glean from this etching can pick up, perk up and improve your daily interactions. You can think of it as your relationship roadmap.
When you know more about your love style, you can better clarify and ask for what you would like to have in your relationship. Then you’re more likely to get your needs met. And when you nurture yourself, and your needs are met, you can connect with others more deeply and completely. When you connect more deeply and completely, you can appreciate others in a more loving and compassionate way.
Let’s take a quick look at the four basic, easy-to-read Heart Line types: The Passionate, Big Heart, Hermit and Rational Romantic. Each illustrates a style of emotional behavior that is typically displayed to others. How you like to be treated in relationship and how you like to treat others can be read in the Heart Line.
Four Steps to Analyzing the Heart Line
Step 1. Locate the Heart Line carved in your hands.
Step 2. Starting on the outside edge of the palm, follow the line and note in which section of the imaginary quadrant your Heart Line ends.
Step 3. Read the associated descriptions, including both upside and downside possibilities.
Heart Line Styles
Identification: The Heart Line starts on the outer edge of the palm under the pinkie finger and runs horizontally across the hand. The line may be straight or curved and long or short. It usually ends somewhere beneath the middle or index finger. Any Heart Line style is possible on a hand. You may also find a different Heart Line on each hand. The type of Heart Line is independent of culture, gender or sexual preference.
The description of your style in relationship is determined by the termination point(s) of your Heart Line. When looking at the map of your Heart Line you want to find where the widest part of the river ends. Sometimes the line will thin out, near the end, like a river turning into a stream. To be most precise with your reading, find where the thickest part of the Heart Line ends.
You will want to employ this method on both your right and left hand. Empirical evidence shows that the Heart Line on the right hand demonstrates the emotional characteristics displayed to the world and the left hand most often shows the traits used at home and in the inner, more intimate world.
The Heart Line Quadrant
Fig. 1 The Sections of the Heart Line Quadrant
The imaginary quadrant has four sections under the middle and index fingers. See figure 1 to position the quadrant, on one hand at a time. First draw an imaginary line straight down between the index and middle finger. Decide if the Heart Line ends on the index or the middle finger side of the vertical line. Next draw an imaginary horizontal line across the vertical line about half an inch from base of fingers. Now, determine if your Heart Line ends above or below that imaginary horizontal line. Then look to see in which section of the quadrant your Heart Line terminates on both hands.
Fig. 2 Names Assigned depending on Termination Point of the Heart Line
Names are assigned to the Heart Line type depending on which quadrant the Heart Line ends. These names are assigned to illustrate emotional behaviors found in owners of these lines. As an example, the Heart Line in figure. 1 is short, flat and ending below the middle finger in the lower left section of the quadrant. This Heart Line is considered the Hermit Heart.
Are you a Hermit? Let’s explore one of the four main Heart Line types; the Hermit.
Fig. 3 The Hermit Heart Line
The short and straight Heart Line belongs to the Hermit. It ends below the middle finger (lower horizontal arrow in Fig. 3) in the lower right section of the quadrant. (The upper arrow is pointing to another line that looks like it could be a Heart Line but it is not; these lines are not connected.)
If you are the Hermit, you are the lone settler. This doesn’t mean you will be alone or want to go through life solo. It does mean you require sanctuary time. The Hermit certainly has emotions, but you display them less than those with curvy Heart Lines. You need time to marinate in your feelings before responding. You like loyal, solid and dependable relationships where you have a strong sense of freedom – in fact, freedom is non-negotiable to you. Your nature is to be productive and grounded. Privacy, security and work are high priorities. You show your love by doing for others. You might not ask others “How are you feeling?” because you believe actions speak louder than words. You simply witness how people are doing without becoming entangled in uncomfortable emotional scenarios. When faced with uncomfortable displays of emotion you’d like to slither away and withdraw. Your biggest challenge is to tune into your heart and communicate your feelings at the appropriate time of your own volition.
At your best, you are dedicated to projects and loyal to very few people and to your pets.
Affirmation: I am keeping my heart open to mysterious feelings and practicing the art of communication in my relationships.
Stay tuned for the next Heart Line types, including The Passionate! Ohh, la la.

The Head Line in your hands illustrates the unique operations of your mental system. Just as your computer has a CPU (central processing unit), you do, too. You employ your mental system when you plan dinner, a vacation and your New Year resolutions. In hand analysis, the length, shape and quality of this line are associated with how you comprehend information and make decisions. The Head Line is associated with the element of air. Consider what happens in the air around you; information flows. This line is one of the three major lines in the palm. The other two major lines are the Life (see Nov. 21 issue) and Heart Lines.
The Head Line starts on the inside of the palm, above the inset of the thumb, and extends across the middle of the hand (see figure 1). Head Lines are different on every hand. They range in length from short to very long. The shapes are straight and flat, rounded downward, and deeply curving toward the wrist (see fig. 2).
As invisible radio signals travel through the airwaves, so too do your ideas, thoughts, concepts, theories and perceptions surge though your internal airways. These channels represent your mental wiring system. Nature has created an etching in your hand to depict how your unique computer system is programmed. How you plan, reason, analyze, and integrate ideas can be read from your Head Lines. The Head Line on your left hand shows how you think at home and the Head Line on your right hand shows how you reason at work, in the outer world.
Owners of short Head Lines tend to make decisions quickly. When I asked a hand analysis student with a short Head Line how she decided to buy her very lucrative stocks she replied, “I did a quick analysis and bought!” She got a tip from a friend and simply liked the products she was investing in. People with short Head Lines draw conclusions more quickly than people with longer Head Lines and if the line is also clear, they’re not likely to change their mind.
The longer the line, the more time is spent ‘on-line’ considering and compartmentalizing information. When one of my students with a long, straight Head Line started a business he created a lengthy business plan, with extensive cost analysis, and purchased a high tech email system with elaborate features for maintaining contacts and selling products. He expressed many ideas to get his business off the ground and to expand. He’s also writing a book and leading workshops.
When the Head Line is long, clear of obstruction, extends straight across the hand and terminates about ½ inch before the edge of the palm (fig. 1) you’ll find the octopus brain. This person won’t feel fulfilled unless he or she has an avenue to use his or her multifaceted brain. All legs of the octopus must be in synthesis mode for the owner to feel a deep sense of satisfaction.
Fig. 1 Long, straight and flat Head Line: Synthesizer
Children with long Head Lines need enough intellectual challenge to keep them busy with school and home projects otherwise they may very well create problems with siblings, friends or school mates.
One 8-year-old in my Project Snowflake showed me his hands with a broken Head Line. For a fraction of an inch the line was broken but soon resumed and continued toward the edge of the hand. His sister told me that he would stop talking midstream of telling a story. I asked her not to complete his sentences for him, knowing that he’d get back ‘online’ and complete his thought. He’s now 11-years-old and his Head Line is reattached
Adults with this very long headline are capable of multi-tasking and require colossal complexity through projects at work and home. If you have this Head Line, a sure sign to know you’re not fully using your potential, is relationship problems. If you initiate a problem in a relationship with your spouse or sister, then you have a juicy problem to wrestle with.
Check the quality of the line. Is your Head Line etched smoothly without obstruction? If yes, the more clear your thinking. Does it break then restart at a new point? If there is a break or interruption in the line, then you will most likely experience your mental computer flipping off line and rebooting every now and then.
Fig. 2 Long, curving Head Line down toward the wrist: Sensitive
The deep, curving Head Line (fig. 2) signifies a person who is deeply reflective, creative and perceptive in their thinking. Deep meaning in life influences their ideas and considerations. They are sensitive and responsive to their environment including people’s feelings. The deeply curving Head Line implies a gift of hidden and consuming emotion, where there is no reason, and the genius to understand others who enter into their world of deep waters. If they aren’t already, I suggest to my clients with long, curing Head Lines to involve themselves in hospice or other deeply caring health care.
Keep in mind; no Head Line is better than another. The way a person processes information is simply the way a person processes information. Consider that everyone comprehends information differently; people make decisions in different ways. A mentor once said, “Seek to understand, then to be understood.” Taking time to better understanding your own methods for decision-making and considering another’s different way of decision-making can generate patience and compassion when relating to others.
