DMIT or Dermatoglyphics Multiple intelligence Test is used to determine distribution of Inborn Intelligence of any individual through the science of Dermatoglyphics.
Dermatoglyphics Multiple intelligence Test is an assessment which uses the science of Dermatoglyphics and the Theory of Multiple Intelligence by Dr. Howard Gardner, which states that there exists set of Multiple Intelligence (MI) in a human brain. The human brain is divided in 5 Lobes – Prefrontal, Frontal, Parietal, Temporal and Occipital. These lobes are in-turn divided in 2 parts each as per brain division in left brain and right brain. Each of these 10 parts of human brain have different functionality and are associated with different multiple intelligence as per theory of Multiple Intelligence by Dr. Howard Gardner. Fingerprint formation and formation of brain are synchronized with the fetus in the mother’s body in first 13 to 19 weeks. Hence these 10 parts of human brain are associated with 10 fingers. These prints on tips of finger can hence be utilized to further identify the strength of brain structures which are in charge of the intelligence area.
If the analysis of fingerprints is done in the Right way and the algorithm used in report generation system is correct, Dermatoglyphics Multiple intelligences Test can achieve an accuracy to the tune of 90% or even more.
If you are looking for Dermatoglyphics, first we need to understand, what is Dermatoglyphics. The term ‘Dermatoglyphics was coined by Cummins and Midlo, way back in 1926. The word Dermatoglyphics can be split in two Greek words – Derma (skin) and Glyph (carving or ridges), So, Dermatoglyphics is a scientific study of carvings or ridges present on our skin or fingertips to be more precise.
Dermatoglyphics is anestablished technique to decode the potential of human brain and brain talent by studying the fingerprint patterns, which are in turn linked to brain development. Dermatoglyphics has got nothing to do with Palmistry and future prediction. In other words, Dermatoglyphics can be used to determine the existing inborn potential of human brain and we can’t predict future through science of Dermatoglyphics.
Dermatoglyphics involves clinical studies which combines brain science, genetics, neurobiology and embryology. The technique of Dermatoglyphics is based on research and was developed by experts by conducted psychological pattern profiles of over 5 Lakh individuals since 1985 across various countries including China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia. A vast database of fingerprints of individuals was gathered for a comparative analysis and help out individuals in discovering their inborn or innate potential.
Multiple intelligences Test is a technique to determine the distribution of Multiple Intelligence in every individual. As per Dr. Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligence, there are 9 Multiple Intelligences in every individual. These are Intrapersonal Intelligence, Interpersonal Intelligence, Logical Intelligence, Visual Intelligence, Kinesthetic Intelligence, Linguistic Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Naturalist Intelligence and Existential Intelligence. The distribution of these 9 Multiple Intelligences varies from one individual to other. Further, as per Dr. Howard Gardner, any task we do, we require a combination of Multiple Intelligence. As an example, an Engineer needs Intrapersonal and Logical Intelligence in his work, a marketing person needs Interpersonal, Linguistic and Logical Intelligence. Multiple Intelligence Test can be an excellent tool to determine the distribution of Multiple Intelligence in any individual and can help in revealing the comfort zones or interest and passion of any individual.
Multiple Intelligence Test can be of 2 types – Inborn or Acquired. Inborn or Innate Multiple Intelligence Test is done through the science of Dermatoglyphics with just fingerprints as input and is also known as Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test (DMIT). However, Acquired Multiple Intelligence is done through Psychometric analysis. This can be achieved through a set of questions as well as through Art and Drawing. The results of Acquired Multiple Intelligence Test will depend upon the mindset of individual at the time of appearing in the test and you may achieve different results over a period of time if you appear for the same test again depending on the mindset or the fact that Acquired Intelligence keeps on changing with time.But if talk about DMIT or Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test, it reveals Inborn Intelligence, is a lifetime assessment and the results are more than 95% reliable.
Fingerprints are developed when child is in mother’s womb between 13th to 19th week of gestation. This is the period when 5 lobes of human brain are also formed. These lobes are divided in 2 parts each, as our brain is divided in 2 parts – Left Brain and Right Brain. Hence there are 10 parts in our brain and 10 fingers. There exists a direct relation between these 5 lobes (10 parts of brain) and 10 fingers. The association is as under:
Left Pre-Frontal Lobe
Left Frontal Lobe
Left Parietal Lobe
Left Temporal Lobe
Left Occipital Lobe
Right Pre-Frontal Lobe
Right Frontal Lobe
Right Parietal Lobe
Right Temporal Lobe
Right Occipital Lobe
Right Hand Thumb
Right Hand Index Finger
Right Hand Middle Finger
Right Hand Ring Finger
Right Hand Little Finger
Left Hand Thumb
Left Hand Index Finger
Left Hand Middle Finger
Left Hand Ring Finger
Left Hand Little Finger
The skin on our fingertips is grooved by curious ridges, which form a variety of configurations. These ridge configurations have attracted the attention of laymen for millenia and also the interest of scientists for centuries. The anatomist Bidloo provided a description of ridge detail in the seventeenth century. Since then, additional information has been added by anthropologists, biologists, and geneticists. For the last century, the fact that each individual’s ridge configurations are unique has been utilized as a means of personal identification especially by law enforcement officials.
More than 30 years ago, a monograph on epidermal ridges was published by Cummins and Midlo (1943/1961). This classic provided interesting information on the historical development of the scientific study of epidermal ridges and invaluable advice on how to record and analyze epidermal ridge configurations. Cummins and Midlo (1926) also coined the name dermatoglyphics (derma = skin; glyphics = carvings) for the scientific study of ridges as well as the ridges themselves. This label has now gained universal acceptance.
Multiple Intelligence Theory was given by Dr. Howard Gardner, who is a renowned Psychologist, Educationist &Scientist and Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
Gardner proposed the “Theory of Multiple Intelligences” way back in 1983, and this theory has been widely accepted by science all over the world. Many schools today run on the education pattern of “Theory of Multiple Intelligence”.
The 9 Multiple Intelligence as per Dr. Howard Gardner are Intrapersonal Intelligence, Interpersonal Intelligence, Visual Intelligence, Logical Intelligence, Kinesthetic Intelligence, Musical IntelligenceLinguistic Intelligence,Naturalist Intelligence and Existential Intelligence.
As per Dr. Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligence, we need a combination of Intelligences to do a particular task. We can’t judge an individual just on the basis of IQ – which is a combination of only Logical and Linguistic Intelligence.
