Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test, abbreviated as DMIT is a simple fingerprint test used to identify inborn talents and traits of an individual. Dermatoglyphics analysis refers to the study of palms, finger patterns and toes. It includes the study of human brain potential based on the fingerprint patterns and strength. These finger prints and patterns start developing when foetus brain development starts in the mother’s womb between 13th – 21st weeks. Between the critical 13thand 21st weeks of embryo genesis, the human brain and fingerprints develop together, along with the formation of other major organ systems. The 10 fingers of the human hand represent the 10 lobes of the brain with a right to left side correlation. Only through a proper fingerprint test one’s potential can be identified. Multiple Intelligence Test has many advantages as it provides a better understanding about one’s spatial, logical, naturalist, intra and interpersonal capabilities, as a result DMIT experts can help in finding the right path to one’s career & personal life.
Dermatoglyphics analysis can discover the unique innate strengths and weaknesses, reveal hidden talent and can enhance the sense of the value of life and happiness.
DMIT benefits are vast but it mainly focuses on 8 Multiple Intelligences of humans to identify their characteristics, traits, talents and improvement areas. DMIT benefits can help students in their academic careers, couples in their relationship, corporates to their employer-employee relationship and parents in understanding their children better. The DMIT fingerprint analysis reveals:
1. Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence (“Word smart”)
This intelligence involves the knowledge which comes from language; through reading, writing, and speaking. It derives the understanding of the order and meaning of words while speaking or writing. The stronger this intelligence, the more refined a person may be on linguistic skills of reading, writing and speaking.
2. Mathematical-Logical Intelligence (“Number smart”)
This intelligence works with numbers and logic to find and understand the various patterns such as thought patterns, number patterns, visual patterns, color patterns that occur in our lives. People who are inclined towards logical-mathematical intelligence tend to think more conceptually and are often able to see relationships and patterns that others might miss. They like to conduct experiments, to solve puzzles and other problems. They are comparatively more systematic and organized, having a logical rationale or argument behind the actions undertaken.
3. Visual-Spatial Intelligence (“Picture smart”)
“A picture is worth a thousand words!” or “Seeing is believing!” This intelligence represents the knowledge that occurs through the images, shapes, designs, patterns, colors and textures one sees with their external eyes, and also includes all the images conjured inside a person’s heads mind. People who are strong in this intelligence tend to think in images and pictures. They like to draw, paint and work with clay, origami and fabric designs.
4. Intrapersonal Intelligence (“Self smart”)
The core of this intelligence is human self reflective abilities. This is introspective intelligence. It involves uniquely human propensity to want to know the meaning, purpose, and significance of things. It underlines awareness of the inner world of the self, emotions, values, beliefs and various quests for genuine spirituality. People high on this intelligence like to work on their own ideas and sometimes may be seen as introverts. They are self-reflective and self-aware and thus tend to be in tune with the inner feelings, values and beliefs. Generally such people are strong willed, self-confident, and have definite, well-thought out opinions on almost any issue, hence people come to seek advice and counsel.
5. Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence (“Body smart”)
The mantra of this intelligence is “Learning by Doing”. This knowledge comes from physical movement and through the knowing of the physical body. Our body “knows” many things that may not necessarily be known by the logical, conscious mind such as how to parallel park a car, dance the waltz, catch a thrown object or maintain balance while walking. People with strong kinesthetic intelligence like physical movement, dancing, making and inventing things with hands.
6. Interpersonal Intelligence (“People smart”)
This is the person-to-person way of knowing. It is the knowing that happens when working with and relating to other people, often as part of a team. This knowledge develops a range of social skills that are needed for effective person-to-person communication and relationship building. People with strong interpersonal intelligence learn through personal interactions. They tend to have lots of friends, exhibit a deep understanding of other points of view and show a great deal of empathy for others. They are skilled in conflict resolution, mediation, and finding compromise when people are in radical opposition to each other.
7. Musical-Rhythmic Intelligence (“Music smart”)
This is the knowledge of sound and vibration. This intelligence is not limited to music and rhythm but also auditory-vibrational patterns, for it deals with the whole realm of sound, tones and beats. People strong in this intelligence are likely to have a love for music. They are very responsive to the sounds in the environment; the chirp of cricket, rain on the roof, varying traffic patterns. They may study and work better with music in the background. Various sounds, tones, and rhythms have a visible effect on them in terms of facial expressions and emotional responses. They like to create and enjoy listening to a wide variety of music.
8. Naturalist Intelligence (“Nature smart”)
The naturalist intelligence deals with the knowledge that occurs in and through a person’s encounters with the natural world. People with strong Naturalist intelligence have a profound love for the outdoors, animals, plants, and almost any natural object. Such people may likely be nature collectors, nature photographers, wildlife lovers. They mostly have an affinity and respect for all living beings.
