The study of Dermatoglyphics (dermato=skin, glyphics=carvings) can be traced back to almost 200 years of research. This study has been proven with evidence in anthropology, genetics, neuroscience and statistics to decode human’s innate ability (inborn characteristic).
It started in 1823 when scientists discovered the relevance of fingerprints and multiple-intelligence in human. Medical research verified that the formation of fingerprint started at week 13 of embryonic stage and completed at week 19. It is also during this period the brain develops, growing simultaneously with the dermal ridges. Therefore there is a direct co-relation between the development of the brain and the fingerprints.
Thumbprints found on contracts over two thousand years ago show that the Chinese have long used fingerprints for signature and identification. For the Western World, however, fingerprints were first discovered when Dr. Jan Evangelista Purkinje (a Czech physicist) classified fingerprints in categories as part of his scientific discovery in 1823. In 1926, Dr. Harold Cummins (US Professor of Anatomy) invented the world Dermatoglyphics and extended dermatoglyphics research into the field of medicine and brought it into more public awareness. More scientists had contributed to the study of dermatoglyphics in the 20th century. Finally based on these extensive studies and verified with facts in anthropology, genetics, neuroscience and statistics, there is now a software developed specifically to map these fingerprint patterns to the brain function.
Some countries such as Russia, China and Taiwan have adopted dermatoglyphics technology in areas of sports, education, human resource management, recruitment, entertainment and even talent scouting.
“Unfortunately, most of us have little sense of our talents and strengths, much less the ability to build our lives around them. Instead, guided by our parents, teachers, managers or influenced by media, peers and friends, we become numbed and blinded and practice our weaknesses and spend our lives in mediocrity, while our strengths lie dormant and neglected. This vicious cycle keep on going as we use the similar way to raise our next generation…”- Dermatoglyphics Consultant
Brain Winners has a 3-Way Approach to discover the innate abilities and talent of an individual, particularly children before the age of 16.
Dermatoglyphics technology is adopted by many education institutions in countries to evaluate their student and also as a marketing tool to increase their enrolment.
Human resource is perhaps the most valuable asset of a corporation. Choosing the right talent especially for an important position is vital as it impacts not only time but also resources. Contrary to other popular psychometric test which can be manipulated, Dermatoglyphics truly reflects one’s natural talent (inborn strength), something that a human resource personnel is looking for:
