As silly as it may sound, did you know that your toes may actually reveal some fascinating insights about your personality? Here, we’ve gathered a few interesting associations between toe shape and personality traits. Check out which one is yours!

What are toes good for anyway? While they may seem unimportant, our wiggling ‘little piggies’ are actually a vital part of the human body, providing crucial balance while we walk. Without these seemingly insignificant appendages, we would have much trouble walking and running.
