Simple Pulse Qualities: Shape
The unique qualities of the slippery and/or choppy pulse are its wave shape.
The slippery pulse is smoothly rising, then dropping. This isn’t so much a mechanism as much as a key identifying trait. The mechanism for this wave form will be discussed later. Are you in a hurry or something?.
The choppy pulse is given a rough shape as is plainly indicated in the graphic on this page.
Next: pulse tension.
