FAQ

a. Who should undergo this assessment?faq

  • Everyone from the age of 3 and above.

b. How often do I have to do this?

  • Only once in a lifetime because our fingerprints do not change once they are formed.

c. What is dermatoglyphics?

  • Dermatoglyphics (from ancient Greek derma = skin, glyph = carving) is the scientific and scientifically-proven study of fingerprints. Dermatoglyphics came from the research of fingerprints (lines that protrude) and the prints from the soles of the feet, physical growth, genetics, mass distribution and applied science.
  • The term, dermatoglyphics was coined by Dr. Harold Cummins, the father of American fingerprint analysis, even though the process of fingerprint identification had already been in use for several hundred years. Since 1823, scientists discovered that there is a co-relation between fingerprints (Dermatoglyphics) and the brains innate multiple intelligences / wisdom. These findings have later been confirmed by medical research.
  • Fingerprints and sole prints start to form at 13 weeks during the fetal development stage and by week 21, they are fully formed. During this stage, the lines and ridges on the fingerprints and the cerebrum (brain) are growing at the same time. Once the fingerprints are formed, it stays for a lifetime and does not change. The only time the prints will change is during the formation period due to genetic factors or when there are environmental factors. This deduction is based upon genetics, embryology, dermatoglyphics and neuroscience. In addition to that, it also uses observation, recording, comparison, classification methods, clinical experience and the integration of multiple intelligences / wisdom.
  • It has been scientifically proven that Dermatoglyphics can accurately analyse and reveal an individual’s inborn multiple intelligences and potential.

d. What is the purpose of DNAg2 Assessment and who is it for?

  • The purpose of the evaluation is to uncover innate strengths and weaknesses without the use of any medication to create strategies ensuring a path towards success.
  • The evaluation can benefit individuals at all stages in their life.
  • Young children can benefit as parents and teachers will have a detailed look into the developing brain and plan lessons or learning activities accordingly.
  • School aged children and high school students can benefit from learning about their optimal learning and knowledge acquiring styles.
  • Professionals can learn about their preferred style of management and communication and Managers responsible for recruitment can particularly benefit from this assessment process when selecting individuals with particular skills for a job.

e. Why is it important for parents and educators?

  • By understanding a child’s innate strengths and learning style, parents and educators can create and provide tailor-made lesson plans.

f. How accurate is DNAg2 Dermatoglyphics?

  • Dermatoglyphics is the professional tool that combines neurology, genetics and embryology. Fingerprint patterns are not random, they are arranged according to genetic makeup and sometimes influenced by the environment of the embryo between the 13th and 21st week of fetal development. The Multiple Intelligence Test has been scientifically proven and the accuracy rate is greater than 80%.

g. How is dermatoglyphics different from palmistry?

  • Dermatoglyphics is the scientific study of the ridges on fingers and is applied for medical and psychological evaluation. Palmistry is the study of palm lines and is applied to provide guidance by foretelling the future. While many believe in palmistry, it is not an established science. Dermatoglyphics has multiple applications in the medical field and is required coursework in medical institutions around the world.

h. How can the ridges on my fingerprints reveal my inner strengths and weaknesses?

  • Dermatoglyphics is the study of the ridges on the fingers. These patterns are unique, fully developed and permanent at birth, and are heavily linked with one’s genetic composition and nervous system. The ridges on our fingers form concurrently with critical brain development in the fetal state between Week 13 and Week 21.

i. Why would I want to narrow my child’s prospects by focusing on only the talents that emerge in the report?

  • The aim of the report is to broaden your child’s potential, not limit it. We recommend parents understand the behaviour type, interactional preferences, and learning styles outlined in the report to deliver the curriculum in a manner most adapted to your child’s needs. We do not advise that parents narrow the possibilities of the child based on the report’s findings.
  • As an example, a child who is naturally better at performing gross motor skills over fine motor skills and is a visual learner might benefit more from watching these skills modelled through various media instead of mere practice. Remember, practice does not “make perfect”. Practice makes permanent. Asking a child to repeat a task until they “get it right” might backfire. Perfect the practice to “make perfect”.

j. Can IQ, CQ, AQ and EQ be improved?

  • Yes. The DNAg2 Dermatoglyphics provides personalized, targeted, and easily-implementable strategies to nurture each of these quotients at any age. With repeated and intentional exposure to these strategies, the quotients can be maintained and further developed.

k. How long does it take to do the DNAg2 Dermatoglyphics assessment?

  • The fingerprint capture session will take between 10-20 minutes. We will arrange a follow-up appointment for the consultation session which will last approximately 20-30 minutes.

l. What is the relationship between fingerprints and the human brain?

  • In the earlier days, American doctors discovered a strange case where a baby was born without a brain. In this case, the absence of the brain was associated with the absence of fingerprints as well. Cases like this have been repeated throughout history, leading medical experts to believe that the brain is absolutely linked to the fingerprints. Neurobiologists point out that our fingerprints development is synchronized with that of the neocortex. Canadian neurologist, Professor Penfield published the chart between brain regions and bodily functions. In the chart, the relationship between the fingerprints and the brain is also pointed out.

m. When did the dermatoglyphics study start?

  • The study of fingerprints emerged way back in the year 1788.

n. How reliable are the dermatoglyphics studies?

  • Many scientists and medical doctors have used genetics, embryology, Dermatoglyphics, anthropology and anatomy as a basis to observe, analyze, validate and conclude the results of Dermatoglyphics.

o. Is there any reference material to authenticate the reliability of the study?

  • Yes. e.g. FINGER PRINTS, PALMS AND SOLES (An Introduction to Dermatoglyphics) – Edited by Harold Cummins, PH.D. and Charles Midlo, M.D., published in New Orleans August 9, 1943

p. How does DNAg2 Dermatoglyphics compare with conventional methods?

  • Conventional Testing uses a questionnaire format where most of the time our answers would be influenced by our emotional and mental state during the testing, whereas Dermatoglyphics does its testing by capturing the different patterns of our permanent fingerprints which are linked to the ridges of our brain.
