Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test (DMIT)
"Your Child's Untold Fingerprint Story"
DERMATOGLYPHICS AND ITS RECENT DEVELOPMENTS
Dermatoglyphics is the scientific study of fingerprints. It is arrived from the ancient Greek, derma = skin, glyph = carving.
Dr.Harold Cummins is considered to be the father of dermatoglyphics. He coined the term Dermatoglyphics in 1926 and researched for 5 decates till 1976.He was a professor in Anatomy at Tulane University, Anthropologist, Vice President of the American Society of Human Genetics (1955), President of the American Association of Anatomists (1961-1962).
Dermatoglyphics research was predominantly directed into genetic research, the diagnosis of chromosomal defects, Embryology, and Neurosciences.
SCIENCE BEHIND DERMATOGLYPHICS
fingerprints are the product of their genes as well as the environment of the mother’s womb. The fingerprint patterns are formed during the fetal development stage 10 to 25 weeks. The human brain also develops during this stage. Scientific researches establish a close relation between the fingerprints and the Brain lobes.
Significant investigations have been carried out into the Dermatoglyphics indicators of congenital heart disease, intestinal disorders, cancer, dental deficiencies, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, autism and many more. Several researches were carried out and over four thousand papers have been published in International journals in the past 3 decades.
What should I become when I grow Big? What should my Child become when he or she grows up? What should I do to be more successful in my profession and climb up the ladder? What Should I…..What should I…….. Many of us have this question. Some follow neighbors, some follow elders, some follow intuitions.
Do you know
- What interests your child has?
- What their preferred learning styles are?
- Their inherent abilities?
- Their Multiple Intelligence’s?
- Their learning communication character?
For the best results, know your child’s inborn capabilities and work on the best. The study of Dermatoglyphics explains about the inherent Multiple Intelligence's of a person in detail.
How is it useful to us?
A child who masters multiplication easily is not necessarily more intelligent overall than a child who struggles to do so. The second child may be stronger in another kind of intelligence. – Howard Gardner
D.M.I.T helps us know our inner self with which we are born. For instance, knowing about our
- Inherent potential
- Multiple Intelligence Distribution
- Dominant and Preferred Learning style
- Learning Communication Character
- Allocation of various abilities
- Psychological & Planning Capability
- Learning Sensitivity
- Innate Work – Management style
Different Learning Styles
Every individual has his/her own unique way of learning and understanding things around them. It is a challenging task for parents to have a complete understanding of their children’s character and inclinations of their child.
Learning styles are various approaches or ways of learning. They involve educating methods, particular to an individual that are presumed to allow that individual to learn best. Most people favour some particular method of interacting with, and processing information.
The 3 Main Learning Styles Are
Typical ways in which learners having different styles react:
|To teach something||Write instructions||Explain verbally||Demonstrate|
|Tend to say||I see what you mean||I hear what you are saying||I know how you feel|
|Tend to say||Show me||Tell me||Let me try|
|Learning a new skill||Watch what the teacher is doing||Talk through with the teacher||Like to give it a try and work it out|
|Find it easiest to remember||Faces||Names||Things done|
|When meeting with an old friend||Say “it’s great to see you!”||Say “it’s great to hear your voice!”||Give them a hug or a handshake|
More about Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test (D.M.I.T)
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. Scientists researched skin ridge patterns and established that the fingerprint patterns actually develop in the womb and are fully formed by the fourth month of pregnancy. Over the last thirty years or so, more than four thousand medical research papers have been written on the significance of skin-ridge patterns!
The theory of multiple intelligence was proposed by Howard Gardner in 1983 to more accurately define the concept of intelligence and to address the question whether methods which claim to measure intelligence are truly scientific.
In his conception, a child who masters multiplication easily is not necessarily more intelligent overall than a child who struggles to do so. The second child may be stronger in another kind of intelligence.
The process of fingerprint identification had been used for several hundred years now. The main thrust of scientific Dermatoglyphics research has been directed into genetic research and the diagnosis of chromosomal defects.
Significant investigations have been carried out into the Dermatoglyphics indicators of congenital heart disease, cancer, intestinal disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, autism as well as other forms of mental illnesses. Most of this research has only been published in International medical journal.
8 Multiple Intelligence’s:
The traditional method of checking the intelligence level of a child is an IQ test. However it uses only language, maths and logic as a base to find the IQ level. It completely overlooks talents in areas like sports, music, art forms, communication etc.
The theory of Multiple Intelligence’s developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University reveals about the below 8 multiple Intelligence’s:
- Visual-Spatial Intelligence
- Verbal Linguistic Intelligence
- Interpersonal Intelligence
- Logical Mathematical Intelligence
- Naturalistic Intelligence
- Inter Personal Intelligence
- Bodily Kinesthetic Intelligence
- Musical Rhythmic Intelligence
