History of Dermatoglyphic

The study of Dematoglyphics, can be traced back to almost 200 years of research.This study has been proven with evidence in anthropology,genetics,medicine and statistics to decode human's innate ability.

It started in the year of 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.


  • In 1983 American developmental psychologist Dr. Howard Gardner developed a theory of Multiple Intelligence ( MI ). A few years ago a rather remarkable commercial spin off from Gardner Theory became available a product named DMIT which stands for Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test.
  • 1892-Sir Francis Galton a British anthropologist and a cousin of Charles Darwin, published his book, "Fingerprints", establishing the individuality and permanence of fingerprints.
  • 1926-Harold Cummins, the Father of Dermatoglyphics and C.Midlo studied all aspects of fingerprint analysis, from anthropology to genetics and embryology perspective. In 1943 he published a book, “Finger Prints, Palms and Soles”, a bible in the field of dermatoglyphics.
  • 1944-Dr Julius Spier Psycho-Analytic Chirologist published “The Hands of Children” he made several significant discoveries especially in the area of psycho-sexual development and the diagnosis of imbalances and problems in this area from the patterns of the hands.
