Have you ever suspected that there might more to your belly button shape than meets the eye?

It might sound a little bit silly, but it’s true!

There’s even a term for it, omphilomancy, which describes the practice of trying to divine secrets by analyzing the belly button.

It may not be evidence-driven, but it sure is fun! Who wouldn’t want to know about the deep, dark secrets hiding in a belly button?

Scroll through below to find out what your belly button shape says about you!

At times, you can get a bit overwhelmed by the pace of things around you, and you prefer to live quietly outside of the fast lane.
