Discover the fundamentals of DMIT – The Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligences Test!

with 2 comments

Concept of the Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligences Test!

The ‘Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligences Test’, also known as DMIT, can be described as an appealing commercial product which suggests that ‘Multiple Intelligences’ can be assessed from dermatoglyphics & fingerprints. During the past years DMIT became a popular niche in some Asian countries with the use of smart marketing techniques focussed on especially young parents, who are often insecure about their child’s future.

Is DMIT really the reliable & valide test that it claims to represent?

This brand new article helps you to discover the fundamentals of DMIT + the work of the people behind this clever marketing palm reading product; however, you can also read about  how DMIT got banned in some regions around the world:

Hand shape gives a clue about Genes, Chromosomes & DNA!

Hand shape gives a clue about Genes, Chromosomes & DNA!

Hand shape is often presumed to represent the domain of the palmist; however, the truth is that our hand shape actually represents a clue about our genes, chromosomes and DNA!

The plot below describes how human hand shape & finger length proportions typically display genetic & chromosomal characteristics, which play a key-role in the variations between human individuals.

IMPORTANT: A precise assessment of hand shape requires a measurement of three aspects of the hand, including: (1) finger length [via the longest digit], (2) palm breadth, and (3) palm length.

Primatology palm reading!

leave a comment »

Primatology palm reading demonstrates how hand structure + function relate to capabilities & behavior. The ‘Primate Hands Family Tree’ (see picture above) describes the typical hand characteristics seen in the major primate subfamilies and the individual species.

For example, the so-called ‘prosimians’ (lower primates) have a completely different hand structure than seen in the so-called ‘simians’ (higher primates – including human kind).  Because in ‘prosimians’ the 4th digit is typically the longest of all 5 digits, while in ‘simians’ the 3rd digit is typically the longest.

But there is so much more to tell about the hand structure in primates. For example, there is a clear pattern in the male-female hand difference (males tend to have relatively longer fingers + wider palms than females), and the typical hand features seen in gorillas & baboons – who are both known as the most violent primate species!

And interestingly… the Primate Hands Family Tree also gives us a better understanding of the nature of the 2D:4D digit ratio (far most primates species have a much lower ratio than seen in human kind) and the fascinating dermatoglyphic ‘whorl’ patterns (in nearly all primate species ‘whorls’  are more common than in us humans).

The article ‘Primate Palm Reading‘ includes a summary of many interesting facts about the evolutionary basis of modern palm reading – including 20+ fascinating illustrations!

Hand Assessment Chart: A palm reading profile via 36 hand features!

leave a comment »


Aristole described: ‘the hand is the organ of the organs’. Later, in medical science the hand became recognized to represent the most differentiated external part of the body. This implicates that an assessment of the hand is a rather complex (arbitrary) task. In order to simplify the task an ‘assessment chart’ was developed based on the principles described by Multi-Perspective Palm Reading.

The ‘assessment chart’ (see above) presents an overview of 36 key-features of the hand, the significance of all individual hand markers involved has been confirmed in scientific studies – though the significance of course varies and depends on the theme for which a hand feature is used to make a (hand) assessment.

The chart is divided in 8 sections, one for each of the 7 hand dimensions (including: dermatoglyphics, finger length, lines, motorics, nails, shape & skin) – NOTICE: the dimension ‘dermatoglyphics’ is divided in a sub-section describing the fingerprints + a sub-section describing palmar dermatoglyphics.

Smart Consulting Service: what else can hands reveal beyond heart rate & temperature?

leave a comment »

Every year almost 3 billions visitors are welcomed in chinese hospitals. Smart Consulting Service presents an alternative virtual solution in order to improve and optimize the doctors-patients contact. The service e.g. includes an assessment of heart rate and temperature via the hands. What else will the future bring?

Smart Consulting Service has been designed to reconcile patients and doctors. The service is located at the hospital’s entrance, it allows people to register and pre-consult themselves before seeing a doctor. Except for providing advice and guidance, the human-sized virtual assistant will guide patients through the pre-consulting process, all the way from there personal informations to there health recommendations. A touchable display, micro and camera’s technology will detect people’s disease and diagnose their vital signs. Once the pre-diagnosis step complete, the service will guide patient to make an appointment with the appropriate or favorite doctor. Smart consulting service will send patient’s health information and first-hand diagnosis to there assigned doctor, therefore making the consulting process more efficient and enjoyable.

The video below demonstrates how Smart Consulting Service works in China.

Hand shape & personality: extraverts have wider palms, introverts have longer fingers!

with one comment

Measurements on the hands of male and female extroverts indicate that wide palms + short fingers (typical for a ‘Fire hand shape’) is a typical combination seen in the hands of Extraverts (= high scorers on the Big Five personality dimension Extraversion). And long fingers + narrow palms (typical for a ‘Water hand shape’) are much more often seen in the hands of Introverts (= low scorers).

Interestingly, these multiple-perspective hand research findings confirm some ‘classic’ guidelines from the fields of hand reading – more details inside the article:

Extraverts have wider palms, Introverts have longer fingers

PS. Beyond the confirmation of the classic hand-shape theory (including elements from Kretschmer & Sheldon’s somatotypes), one could also say that these results have a NATURAL PRINCIPLE incorporated; for, when people grow older the personality tends to develop more towards introversion and the hands get narrower and more slender!

What is your thought…

Hand signs for Extraversion / Introversion!

with 3 comments

 

A new study (2012) shows that the hands of ‘extroverts’ tend to vary signficantly from the hands of ‘introverts’. Those scoring high for Extraversion appear to have short fingers, a wider palm shape, and the ulnar (pinky) side of the hand appears to be more well developed. While introverts tend to have longer fingers, a narrower palm shape, and the radial (thumb) side of the hand tends to be more well developed.

The study also points out that it is quite impossible to recognize personality traits from just one hand characteristics: combining characteristics (in multiple hand dimensions) is essentail!
