The system helps to identify our intrinsic potential that we might not even be aware of.
To understand this system better, let us first look at the two components:
2. Multiple Intelligence
Dermatoglyphics is the scientific study of fingerprints. Scientists have discovered that as the embryo grows during pregnancy , the formation of our fingerprints takes place at the same time as the brain and the spinal
cord development.Further research revealed that each of our 10 fingerprints reflects a different region of our brain. Now that this relation between the brain and the fingerprints has been established, scientists can study our fingerprints to help identify how our brains differ from others.
What is Dermatoglyphics?
Dermatoglyphics is the scientific study of fingerprints. The term was coined by Dr. Harold Cummins, the Father of Dermatoglyphics. The field studies the ridge formations on our hands and the soles of our feet. These patterns are formed during the same stage of the embryo development as the spinal cord and the brain. As the brain develops more and more creases, our fingerprints start reflecting these patterns as well. Each of our 10 fingers corresponds to a different region of our brain and the way it is developed.
Once the ridges are finally set, they never change and hence we have the same fingerprints all our lives. Our unique fingerprints are also an indication that we each have unique brains, wired in our very own inimitable ways.
Dermatoglyphics and the medical field
Since the 1920s, there has been active medical research into the field of Dermatoglyphics to try and determine what we can unlock by studying our fingerprints. With approximately 200 million nerve endings dedicated to our hands alone, they become extremely good sources of untapped psychological and physiological information.
One of the more promising results has been the understanding of latent congenital diseases. Research has also established a connection between our fingerprint patterns and personalities. Scientists discovered that the varying distribution of the brain cells helps us understand our intelligence better and even discover hidden potential capabilities and personality.
2. Multiple Intelligence
In his 1983 book, Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner challenged the belief that the ‘IQ’ system alone could help gauge the complexities of the human brain and the human potential.
According to Gardner, we should not just look at one measure of IQ to understand our own capabilities, but rather study the several ‘basic intelligences’ that form our personality and intelligence. Learn More
With the DMIA system our aim is to help you understand yourself better by studying your fingerprints and applying the data to the Multiple Intelligence model. It helps us understand your multiple intelligences as well as your innate potential capabilities and personality. At Brain Caliber, we combine the analysis of the Multiple Intelligence model with that of the communication profiling models – DOPE and DISC.
