DMIT - Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test

Research & Studies

  • 1684 Dr. Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712) :- presented Finger Prints, Palms and Soles An Introduction To Dermatoglyphics to the Royal Society.
  • 1685 Dr.Bidloo 1685 :- published an anatomical atlas, Anatomia Humani Corporis, with illustrations showing the human figure both in living attitudes and as dissected cadavers.
  • 1686 Dr. Marcello Malphigi (1628-1694) :- noted in his treatise; ridges, spirals and loops in fingerprints.
  • 1788 J.C.Mayer :- was the first to write out basic tenets of fingerprint analysis and theorised that fingerprints were unique.
  • 1823 Dr. Jan Purkinje :- classified the papillary lines on the fingertips into nine types: arch, tented arch, ulna loop, radial loop, peacock’s eye/compound, spiral whorl, elliptical whorl, circular whorl, and double loop/composite.
  • 1823 Joannes Evangelista :- Purkinji found that the patterns on one’s finger tips and the ridges and lines on one’s prints begin to form at around the thirteenth week in the womb.
  • 1832 Dr. Charles Bell (1774-1842) :- was one of the first physicians to combine the scientific study of neuroanatomy with clinical practice. He published The Hand: Its Mechanism and Vital Endowments as Evincing Design.

NEOCORTEX is the structure in the brain that differentiates human from other vertebrates and it serves as the center of higher mental functions for human beings. It nurtures the higher intelligence of human beings.

Prefrontal lobe has been found to play a part in impulse control, working memory, problem solving, socialization and spontaneity. It assists in planning, coordinating, controlling and executing behavior creating personality expression and moderating correct social behavior. People who have damaged prefrontal lobe may experience problems with being unable to initiate action, attentiveness, ability to concentrate, behavior disorders, difficulty in learning new information, lack of inhibition( appropriate social behavior), lack of goal-direction and emotional ability with “Flat Effect” (unemotional)

Frontal lobe – logical thinking, computation process analysis, reasoning and judgment language production, handling of words and grammar and synthesis, imagination, concept and Idea formation, creative thinking and visualization.

Parietal lobe is responsible for control of activity, involved in the reception and processing of sensory information from the body, Parietal Lobe Damage : Damage to the front part of the parietal lobe on one side causes numbness and impairs sensation on the opposite side of the body. Affected people have difficulty identifying a sensation’s location and type (pain, heat, cold or vibration). Damage to the back part of the parietal lobe causes right-left disorientation and problems with calculations and drawing. Damage to the right parietal lobe can cause aphasia-inability to perform simple skilled tasks, such as brushing the hair or dressing.

Temporal lobe is responsible for the reception of auditory (hearing) input. For example, the right temporal lobe is responsible for musical appreciation, whilst the left hemisphere is responsible for the understanding of speech. Left temporal lesion results in impaired memorial. Right side lesion can result in recall of non-verbal material. Right side lesion can result in recall of non-verbal material, such as music and drawings.

Occipital lobe is responsible for visual spatial processing and visual interpretation. For example the right occipital lobe will recognizes image/object and face by sight. The left occipital lobe is responsible for recognition of words, sign and symbol and reading. Damages of occipital lobe will lead to discrimination of movement and color discrimination, And it also can cause word blindness with writing impairments (alexia and agraphia)

Relation of TRC, Intelligence and Learning Potentials

Quantitative chart shows the Total Ridge Count (TRC) of cells in cerebral cortex, representing the amount of brain neurons. The value of TRC does not refer to the intelligence but it depends on the individual congenital size of learning space. Individual with TRC lower than 65 needs to be patient in their learning process and must get sufficient stimulation and counseling, individual with TRC 200 and above has an excellent learning ability and short term memory. Acquired learning and training will combine the brain neurons to transform the potential to intelligence. A is referred to open area, potential value is between 0 and unlimited with high plasticity and with bipolar effect.

Multiple Intelligence is based on innate genetic and acquired environmental factors that bring differences among individuals. Discovery of innate intelligence helps to understand one’s talent in order to stimulate and strengthen in throughout the learning process to master wisdom. If the innate talent is weak and being neglected and hidden, the talent will degenerate. Factors that influence innate intelligence includes 1) genetic 2) disease, and 3) body injury that could influence health condition, behaviour, nutrition, medicine and stimulation during pregnancy.

Indefinite Poteltials    I   AT or AS

• People with “AT” or “AS” have the characteristic of “unlimited learning capability and require training via education to develop their potentials.


ATD Classification

ATD Angle 41 – 45      Average Acuity

– Your right brain / left brain is suitable for step by step learning to further enhance your innate potentials – Your progress in mastering methods and clues of learning is steady and gradual

– Your learning speed and level of response are normal


– While learning it is imperative to construct your own learning objectives or goals, thus arouse higher interest and desire to learn, by using your stronger intelligences to drive and support the development of your weaker intelligences

– If you like to develop your career in the field which needs delicate skill then you need training and practice from young age

– You need some extra time for practice for mastering particular task


ATD Angle > 46          Weak Acuity

– Your right brain / left brain has a slower response to learning compared to the above categories

– Your thinking process is longer and you are slightly weaker in terms of fine movement skills, thus you need to break down the process into several parts and practice repeatedly


– People with slightly slower response in learning are not stupid ; it is just that they need longer time to develop thought and react

– You need ample encouragement to build you self confidence

– Your learning and response speed can be increased with extensive and meticulous guidance throughout your learning process

– Physical exercises such as jogging and sprinting can also help build up speed and swiftness

– Within the period of 0 and 8 years of age, it is advisable to conduct agility training on the fingers and body to enhance physical flexibility




Innate Characteristics

You are full of infinite potential and plasticity. Like a sponge you absorb and learn whatever you are taught but you are able to learn and absorb only if you are given proper guidance. Use your innate potentials as a benchmark and develop towards becoming a professional. You are a pragmatist, practical and hardworking but lack of sensibility. You incline to familiar interpersonal relationships and substantial goals. You are efficient and prudent, hence you find confrontations and vagueness objectionable. Besides, you are also conservative, dubious, stagnant, sensitive, impatient, distant and defensive. You believe that nothing comes easy hence you work extremely hard to obtain something. Being honest, stubborn and emotionally erratic, you are rather weak in self expression.


Preferred Communication Style

– Extracting answers and decisions forcefully will daunt them.

– Provide extensive trainings and a wide repertoire of learning materials.

– Use one-to-one teaching method.

– Keys of success are education and continuous positive encouragement.

– Can be professionals if receive good education.

– Able to learn new things and new concepts diversely to nurture their multidisciplinary thinking ability and become an integrated expert with many specialties.

– Training of problem solving capabilities is needed.

– Give immediate compliments or encouragements when they do something right.

– Instantly point out mistakes and correct them immediately.

– Parents or teachers should actively provide chances for multiple learning, set targets and learning plans at different stages.

Suggestions for Better Learning

– Use visual material to reinforce learning like slides, illustrations, diagrams, pictures, charts, maps, graphs etc. – Colour code to organize notes and possessions.

– Ask for written directions.

– Use flow charts, mind-mapping and diagrams for note taking.

– Use colours to highlight important points in text.

– Visualize information as a picture to aid memorization.

– Use multi-media (e.g. computers, videos and filmstrips).

– Teaching materials should include written words, paintings, pattern, symbols, colours, charts, forms, video tapes, flashcards and flowcharts, flipcharts and hand-outs.

– Take detailed notes to absorb the information.

– Good to sit at the front of the classroom to avoid visual obstructions (e.g. people’s heads).

– Illustrate your ideas as a picture or brainstorming bubble before writing them down.

– Write a story and illustrate it.

– Build an environment with abundant visual experience to promote visual development during infant phase.

Preferred Communication Strategies

– Communication with letters and short message is optimal.

– Write down the things to be done.

– Prefer face to face communication to notice emotions of the other party.

– To convince them, a concrete thing like proof should be presented.

Preferred Encouragement Strategies

– Use written rewards like testimonials, transcripts and written compliments. – Give concrete rewards (something colourful and exquisite).

– Use certificate of merits, words of encouragement and compliments in written forms. – Use positive facial expressions and eye contact.

This area has to do with movement and doing. In this category, people are generally adept at physical activities such as sports or dance and often prefer activities which utilize movement. They may enjoy acting or performing and in general they are good at building and making things. They often learn best by physically doing something rather than reading or hearing about it Those with strong bodily-kinesthetic intelligence seem to use what might be termed as muscle memory i.e. they remember things through their body rather than through words (verbal memory) or images (visual memory). It requires the skills and dexterity for fine motor

movements such as those required for dancing, athletics, surgery, craft making etc. Careers which suit with this intelligence include

athletes, dancers, actors, comedians, builders and artisans. People who are high in this intelligence use body language when

expressing thoughts and feelings. They excel in complicated body exercises or performances. They have good sense of balance and

eye-hand co-ordination. They feel fidgety when sitting quietly for long time.

Possible Career Interests

Actors, martial ads performer, yoga instructor, dancer, athlete, sculptor, nursing staff, chefs, Chinese physician, chiropractor, mechanic / technician, demonstrators, divers, sports people, soldiers, fire-fighters, performance artists, ergonomists, osteopaths, crafts-people, acupuncturists, adventurers, choreographer, physical education teacher, entertainment personnel, carpenter, acrobat, magician, gymnast, aerobics teacher, sports trainer, surgeon, drama coach.
