Speed at which information travels in the brain:
There are about 100 billion neurons in the human brain. Information travels between neurons at high speed & the slowest speed is 260 mph or 416 kmh. Accordingly to Dermatoglyphics sciences, we can see a triangular formation below index finger, little finger and lower part of the palm. An angle should be formed with these 3 points as in below picture. This is called ATD. There is no right or wrong angle of ATD. It is just the individual’s ability of learning. ATD degrees reflects the brain & muscle coordination, ability in conveying and transmitting information. All the information is transmitted through sight, hearing, smell, taste & touch to neurons and delivered to brain for analysis.
FAST LEARNERS – ATD angle below 35 degrees
Some people are very fast learners. It indicates that they are very smart in their personal learning, fast in finding their learning methods & clues and have strong understanding capability.
Congratulations on their strong understanding capability. It is suggested that when they are faced with any issue, view it with a relaxed mind & practice abdominal breathing. Always keep a small notebook with you. If they can jot down whatever ideas you may have, they can stand to benefit from more comprehensive results as time goes by.
STABLE LEARNERS- ATD 35-40 degrees
Normal physiological range of the ordinary people, indicating that their Right brain / Left brain has stable & fair performance in terms of observation power, task performing ability, movement skills as well as mastering methods and clues in learning new things. They are smart in their personal learning, able to learn fast, agile in response and have strong muscle coordination. It indicates that they have a high level of perception of new things & response to their learning conditions.
They are rather smart & are able to fully demonstrate their self-confidence and acumen. It is appropriate for you to make good use of their stronger intelligence for in-depth studies to nurture some professional skills.
STEP BY STEP LEARNERS- ATD angle 40-45 degrees
Right brain / Left brain has observation power, task performing ability & movement skills that are suitable for step by step learning to train and enhance their stronger potentials. There is a stable & normal performance in terms of mastering methods & clues of learning new things. Their personal learning, speed of learning & level of responses are normal.
At the time of their learning, it is necessary to strengthen their motives & stimulate their desire to learn, using their stronger intelligence to drive & support the development of their weaker intelligence.
SLOW LEARNERS- ATD angle above 45 degrees
Right brain / Left brain has slower response in learning and they need to be taught with more time & in more stages or steps. This indicates that they are slower in their personal learning, speech as well as eating. Their thinking process is longer & they are slightly weaker in terms of fine movement skills. Thus they need to break the process into several steps & have more time for repeated practice. Exercises involving extensive physical movement such as jogging are suitable for you.
People with slightly slower response in learning need longer time to develop their responses. It is appropriate to give them more encouragement to build their self-confidence. At the appropriate times they should undergo training on speed & develop their skills in physical exercises. For the period of 0-8 years, it is suitable to have training on agility of the fingers or dexterity of the body to enhance physical flexibility.
