1. What is Dermatoglyphics?
Dermatoglyphics (from ancient Greek derma = "skin", glyph = "carving") is the scientific study of fingerprints. The term was coined by Dr. Harold Cummins, the father of American fingerprint analysis, even though the process of fingerprint identification had already been in use for several hundred years. All primates have ridged skin. It can also be found on the paws of certain mammals, and on the tails of some monkey species. In humans and animals, dermatoglyphics are present on fingers, palms, toes and soles. This helps shed light on a critical period of embryogenesis, between four weeks and five months, when the architecture of the major organ systems and brain is developing in the mother’s womb.
2. Is “Dermatoglyphics” similar to astrology ?
No, Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Analysis is not about the “Future”, it is about the present.
After this analysis an individual would know what innate human potential a person was born with.
This would help her or him to know what her strengths are and how she can nurture them to improve the quality of her life, financially and emotionally.
3. How does Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Analysis (DMIA) help me?
DMIA is a revolutionary system that helps an individual identify their inborn talents, build them into strengths and enjoy consistent rewards that fulfil the ultimate need of self actualization. DMIA is the system that identifies one’s intrinsic human potential within the theory of human genetic inheritance.
Every child / person possesses unique qualities and potential. If through scientific methods, we can understand a Child’s/ person’s innate characteristics and aptitude, we can better teach them. If one is naturally strong in a particular intelligence area, with attention to these areas there is a multiplier effect and the strong gets much stronger. On the other hand, if one is naturally weak in any intelligence area and it is not nurtured. Then later in life, one may lose that ability completely. As such, it is vital to give accurate and right stimulation to development areas soon as possible to avoid the deterioration of a precious ability.
4. How is Dermatoglyphics multiple intelligence analysis done and what does this include?
Step 1: An Individual’s fingerprints are acquired on a “Biometric Scanner”.
Step 2: Computerized & Manual “Derma-Analysis”.
Step 3: Professional Consultation Service with Personalized Report. This includes “One counselling” sessions in which we explain the complete report and also respond to queries.
Step 4: (This is optional) As a part of the analysis we also ascertain the “Nutritional needs” of an individual. If the
individual wants we also suggest “Dietary Supplements” which the individual can have so that she maintains a healthy body too.
Step 5: (This is optional) If an individual needs any special attention or therapy, then we suggest or direct the individual to a specialist who then takes over and helps the individual overcome her challenges.
Step 6: (This is optional) If the individual wants to work on a specific development plan then we closely work with her and work out a detailed activity schedule. These schedules’ if followed help the individual stimulate her strengths and also help her overcome some of her development areas.
5. How does it help Parents?
Parents are better positioned to understand their child’s behaviour, natural ability and learning style, consequently they find it easier to communicate with and guide their children.
Child development research has established that the rate of human learning and development is most rapid in the preschool years hence it is very important to spot & identify a Child’s strengths & development areas at an early age.
Early intervention becomes particularly important when a child runs the risk of missing an opportunity to learn during a state of maximum readiness. If the most teachable moments or stages of greatest readiness are not taken advantage of, a child may have difficulty learning a particular skill at a later time.
Only through early identification and proper nurturing can children develop their potential. It is important that the nurturing starts young.
If a child does not get the right kind of stimulus at the right age natural neurological circuits will not develop properly, compromising performance in that particular area.
6. How accurate is Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Analysis?
Our fingerprints are determined by our DNA and they have a direct co-relation to how our brain develops. Scientists have studied and have proved the correlation between the “Ridges on the fingers” & the “Ridges on the brain” and have also proved how this can be analyzed to identify the “Intellect” levels of an individual.
By the 13th week of development of an embryo in the womb, skin ridges that will not change in one’s lifetime begin to appear, this process goes on upto the 24th week and is in tandem with the embryo’s brain development.
There is a very high degree of accuracy in Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Analysis.
The importance is that it only requires the subject’s fingerprints, without further intervention. This avoids any inaccuracy introduced as a result of intellectual and emotional maturity, language skills, etc that is typically present in other & conventional means of intelligence and learning style analysis and aptitude tests.
Dermatoglyphics as a science has also been further developed to also ascertain some of the critical and acute disorders in a human being.
7. Do we waste a lot of time and energy trying to make our child change according to our whims or would we rather help her excel in an area that she has a natural ability?
Through DMIA, you get to know your child’s inborn characteristics and intelligences and can use the analysis to collaborate, nurture and stimulate your child. It is not easy to be a parent in the 21st Century. Use this tool to help you help your child.
8. How about parents, do they need to take the test?
Yes, it is strongly recommended that parents also get their Dermatoglyphics Analysis done.
This would help parents understand themselves better and also understand what their strengths are and how they can use them in their Childs development.
This analysis would also help parents understand each other well so that the relationship between the parents strengthens.
9. What’s the difference between Palmistry and Dermatoglyphics?
Palmistry characterizes personalities and foretells the future through studying the lines of the palms. These lines will change over time. Dermatoglyphics Analysis is the science of analyzing the fingerprint patterns. Skin ridges begin to appear when the embryo is developing in their mother’s womb, and will not change over time. Dermatoglyphics Analysis does not foretell the future, but rather reveals our congenital intelligence distributions, and potential talents.
Dermatoglyphics is the study of the pattern on fingers and hands. These patterns are uniquely intertwined with an individual’s genetic composition and central nervous system. Dermatoglyphics can reveal our intrinsic qualities and talents.
10. Who is it for or how does this apply to various age groups?
Neurons grow rapidly before birth. The Developing brain generates between 50 to 100 thousand new cells per second from the fifth through the twentieth week of gestation. These brain cells migrate to different locations in the brain and begin to be responsible for different functions. Therefore, if we understand where our potential lies, we can stimulate these neurons to help us succeed in different areas.
- Toddlers (age 1-4)
From birth through about age four there are vast numbers of connections and collections being recorded in the brain.
Knowing a toddler’s potentials at the early age help parents make decisions on parenting styles and educational methods.
- Children (age 4-12)
From age four through twelve the brain begins to prune the excessive synapses in an attempt to get organized and
eliminate what is not necessary.
At this age, Children are curious to learn and they can absorb more than they will when they grow older. Discovering their learning styles and areas of intelligences at this age gives a clue on what extracurricular courses and activities they should spend more time on.
- Teenagers & Young Adults (age 12-25)
The teenage years consist of more aggressive pruning as the brain begins to specialize and build an identity.
Discovering learning styles at this age can better enhance one’s learning experience. It also serves as a guideline on what type of courses or careers one should take.
- Adult (age 25+)
Adulthood ushers in a bit of a pruning plateau, where some connections are diminished and others are enhanced.
Understanding one’s areas of intelligences help an adult make decisions on careers. Understanding more about self can help adults communicate better and thus build better relationships.
Employers can also apply Dermatoglyphics analysis to find out the strength and weakness of their employees for position placement.
11. What is the relationship between fingerprints and the human brain?
American doctors discovered a strange case where a baby born without a brain, also had no fingerprints, resulting in the realization that there is a well defined correlation between the two. Cases like this throughout history, have lead medical experts to believe that the brain is absolutely linked to the fingerprints.
Neurobiologists point out that our fingerprints development is synchronized with that of the Neocortex. For example, children with Down syndrome have fingerprints with differently distinguished characteristics.
Canadian neurology professor Penfield published a detailed chart explaining the correlation between brain regions and bodily functions. In the chart, the relationship between fingerprints and the brain is also pointed out.
Japanese medical research has also pointed out that fingerprints are closely related to the brain lobes. In light of the above let us use your fingerprints to help you understand your child and yourself
