What does the shape of your belly button say about you?

Your personality is associated with the shape of your belly button. Surprised, right?

Omphalomancy is the study of navel shapes and is used to predict one’s personality, based on the shape of your navel.

While it may sound a bit silly, the fact is that the shape, colour, protuberance etc. of the belly button reveals a lot about your health, your body and as a result of this, your personality.

Here, we have different belly buttons and we reveal what they say about you as a person.

1 Round

A round, deep belly button is indicative of an optimistic personality. If you have round belly button then you are the sort of person who would look at a dark cloud and point at the silver line.

You are the kind of person who would get hurt and come out smiling because you learned something from it. The fact is that you are good at communicating your thoughts and that makes all your relations healthy and interactive.

Plus, your optimism rubs off on people and who don’t like being around someone who could make them see hope. Luck is something you may not possess in abundance, but you compensate for it with your happy-go-lucky nature.

2 Big

The big and deep belly button is a sign of a generous personality. If you have this belly button then you are the sort of person whose magnanimity knows no bounds.

You are the sort of person who may suffer personally but never let it affect the ones close to you. You excel in man management as you are good with people and with age, you would grow much wiser due to the varied experiences you would have in life.

The one problem that would emerge is that you may start doubting the need to be selfless in the selfish world, but once you move past that you’d realize that the only person who you should be is the one who you are.

3 Shallow

The shallow and small belly button is indicative of a darker dimension of your personality. If this is the belly button you have, then you are the kind of person who is good at keeping a secret.

You are someone who understands the darker side of people and someone who has been through a lot and has grown to distrust all except those very close to you.

You may very well be mysterious yourself given the things you have seen and the kind of people you have experienced, making you a bit of a sceptic but for good reasons.

4 Protruding

A protruding belly button is indicative of a strong-willed personality. You are the sort of person who may appear stubborn, but the fact is that you believe in sticking by your opinions which you arrive at after careful consideration.

You also like being in the limelight (though you may not admit it), because you know your true worth and like being the centre of attention for who you are.

Love is an issue for you, as it will take some time before you find someone to match your capabilities, but once you find them, it will last.

5 Upward

Big, deep and upwards is the ideal belly button shape and is indicative of a (relatively) healthy birth and hence a healthy mind.

The primary qualities that define you are cheerfulness, energetic and active. You are the sort of person who is internally driven and inherently motivated.

Your enthusiasm is infectious and not a lot of people know this, but you carry a secret goal in your heart which you wish to fulfil in life. Everything you do would drive you towards this goal and it may take time, but you will achieve it.

6 Downward


Somewhat opposite of the upward belly button, the downward belly button is indicative of lower energy levels. This, however, is only physical.

You are the sort of person who may not like to work too much manually, but would excel at brain games. You are the sort of person who people may call lazy, but they also appreciate your smartness at the same time.

Lazy people find better ways of doing the same thing…this line is very true for you. So take it easy, lay back and keep doing your thing.

7 Oval


The oval-shaped belly button is associated with hyperactivity and extra sensitivity. If this is the shape of your belly button, then you are the sort of person who is restless and always needs something to do.

You get bored easily and are always looking for something new. Curiosity, therefore, drives you strongly and you always need to know something new.

On the other hand, you are also quite sensitive. You feel things deeply and you may get hurt easily, but you would never reveal it and will suffer in silence.

This is something you may need to work on but your curiosity will always pull you out of a dark night.

8 Wide


Wide belly buttons are associated with people who have the tendency to always be on their guard. If this is the shape of your belly button, then you are the sort of person who doesn’t trust anyone easily.

On the other hand, people who you let into your personal life, mean the world to you. You would protect them with the fierceness of a wounded tiger and may give them all you have.

Loyalty and trust are the prime drivers of your personality and your attitude towards someone are determined completely by the way they treat you. Give as you get is a fair principle and you embody it completely.

9 Reverse Y-shaped


this is somewhat rare, but if this is the shape of your belly button, then you are one of those people who remain behind the scenes and do all the work.

You are not the one to look for fame or glory as you are too well aware of your strengths. You stay back, do your thing, excel at what you do and keep your success to yourself.

Success is something very personal to you and so is your happiness, both of which you would find in plenty but keep it warm and close to your heart.

You are the sort of person no one may know of but someone who would affect many people’s lives through your genuine personality, and maybe that’s all that really matters.
