What is Dermatoglyphics?

Dermatoglyphics, derived from ancient Greek words derma meaning skin and glyph meaning 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, dermatoglyphs 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 is developing.

Can Dermatoglyphics test help me?

Dermatoglyphics tests help us understand people being tested for following faculties:

  1. The structure of the superior order of brain function.
  2. Learning how to operate a keen ability.
  3. Visual, auditory, learning the proper channels.
  4. Learning and education, communication patterns.
  5. Eight multi-intelligence potential.


Sometimes parents do not understand their child's true potential. The tests help parents understand their child's clear mind and brain cells, the distribution and function of strength, grasps child's unique qualities and potential. Besides, they can also learn how children should be given proper learning environment so that we can follow according to the child's personality characteristics and the mode of communication for him/her to achieve the function of raising a child mind in order to enhance the learning outcomes.

What can I know from the Fingerprint Analysis test about myself ?

This test could be for an adult or a child and it tells you about:

  • Your learning styles(Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic)
  • Your brain dominance ( Left or Right )
  • Your Personality traits and behaviour patterns
  • Your relationship compatibility with other personalities
  • Why children are opposed to your thoughts and ideas
  • Why children are over active or stubborn
  • What are my potential subjects for higher studies
  • What type of career will have scope to fulfil my potential

How accurate is the dermatoglyphics multiple intelligences test?

Dermatoglyphics is a professional industry that combines neurobiology, genetics and embryology. Fingerprint patterns are not random but are arranged according to individual genetic makeup.

Dermatoglyphics multiple intelligences test is scientifically proven. Besides, the data acquisition process is computerized. Therefore, we can achieve an accuracy of more than 90%. Striae formation and formation of brain are synchronized with the foetus in the mother's body in first 13 weeks to 19 weeks. It has been medically and clinically proven that striae and the existence of multiple intelligences are completely linked.

The proponent of multiple intelligences theory by Professor Howard Gardner states that multiple intelligences exist in the brain system and further identify the brain structures which are in-charge of the intelligence area. Therefore, sooner the child understands the situation of dermatoglyphics, better we can inspire and help the child's multiple intelligence development as soon as possible.

How will a Dermatoglyphics Assessment benefit me?

Every child possesses unique qualities and potential. We can teach the children better if we can understand their innate characteristics and aptitude through scientific methods. If a child is gifted, he/she can improve his/her skills with more clarity. It is vital to give an accurate and right stimulation as soon as possible to avoid the deterioration of precious ability.

Is Dermatoglyphics testing scientific or medical basic?

Both. Dermatoglyphics is based on many sciences, viz. medical sciences of genetics, embryology, dermatoglyphics, brain science etc, use of observation, recording, contrast, inductive learning methods coupled with clinical experience. It was concluded that from the striae we can accurately analyze the child's multiple intelligences and potential personality.

Is Dermatoglyphics test an IQ test?

Dermatoglyphics test is not an IQ test but an intelligent narrowing definition of striae test of multiple intelligences, including linguistic intelligence, logical and mathematical intelligence, spatial intelligence, body - kinesthetic intelligence, musical intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, introspective intelligence, and last but not least naturalist intelligence, which is included in the eight intelligence, where "IQ" can be simply summarized as a simple test which takes into consideration only logical and mathematical intelligence test.

Is Dermatoglyphics testing Palm Reading or Palmistry?

No, striae test is based on the most advanced scientific and medical research. Besides, Dermatoglyphics testing refers to the growth in human hands, protruding ridges on the soles of the feet, which is a lifetime constant while palm readers target at hand-held self recessed lines, which keep changing over a period of time.

What happens during a Dermatoglyphics assessment?

All you have to do is place each finger on a machine that scans your finger prints. In less than a week your report will be ready for collection. The report will be around 40 pages long. The Certified DMIT counselor from BrainMagic will analyse and interpret the full report and explain all its fine prints to you.

Preserve this report for Life as it will be your friend, philosopher and guide in the future.
