The study of the patterns of ridges on the skin of the fingers, palms, toes, and soles.
Dermatoglyphics (from ancient Greek derma = “skin”, glyph = “carving”) is the scientific study of fingerprints. The term 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 1920s, Dermatoglyphics has been studied in the medical field, especially in relation to genetically-linked diseases. The study has absolute scientific basis, with 200 years of research. It is analyzed and proven with evidence in anthropology, genetics, medicine and statistics.
1684 Dr. Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712) :- presented Finger Prints, Palms and Soles An Introduction To Dermatoglyphics to the Royal Society.
1685 Dr.Bidloo 1685 :- published an anatomical atlas, Anatomia Humani Corporis, with illustrations showing the human figure both in living attitudes and as dissected cadavers.
1686 Dr. Marcello Malphigi (1628-1694) :- noted in his treatise; ridges, spirals and loops in fingerprints.
1788 J.C.Mayer :- was the first to write out basic tenets of fingerprint analysis and theorised that fingerprints were unique.
1823 Dr. Jan Purkinje :- classified the papillary lines on the fingertips into nine types: arch, tented arch, ulna loop, radial loop, peacock’s eye/compound, spiral whorl, elliptical whorl, circular whorl, and double loop/composite.
1823 Joannes Evangelista :- Purkinji found that the patterns on one’s finger tips and the ridges and lines on one’s prints begin to form at around the thirteenth week in the womb.
1832 Dr. Charles Bell (1774-1842) :- was one of the first physicians to combine the scientific study of neuroanatomy with clinical practice. He published The Hand: Its Mechanism and Vital Endowments as Evincing Design.
1893 Dr. Francis Galton :- published his book, “Fingerprints”, establishing the individuality and permanence offingerprints. The book included the first classification system for fingerprints: Arch, Loop, and Whorl.
1897 Harris Hawthorne Wilder :- was the first American to study dermatoglyphics. He invented the Main Line Index, studied thenar hypothenar eminencies, zones II, III, IV.
1926 Dr. Harold Cummins & Dr. Charles Midlo coined :- the term “dermatoglyphics”. They showed that the hand contained significant dermatoglyphic configurations that would assist the identification of mongolism in the new-born child.
1936 Dr. Harold Cummins & Dr. Charles Midlo :- also researched the embryo-genesis of skin ridge patterns and established that the fingerprint patterns actually develop in the womb and are fully formed by the fourth fetal month.
1957 Dr.Walker :- used the dermal configurations in the diagnosis of mongolism 1969 John J. Mulvihill, MD and David W. Smith, MD published :- The Genesis of Dermatoglyphics that provides the most up to date version of how fingerprints form.
Types of fingerprints:
Characterstics :- Highly focused, goal oriented, target centric, inflexible, Independent and Proactive.
Characterstics :- Emotional, Team player, adaptive, easy to approach, good in interaction.

The author of over twenty books translated into twenty-seven languages, and several hundred articles, Gardner is best known in educational circles for his “Theory of Multiple Intelligences” proposed in 1983, which has been widely accepted by science all over the world. And today there are many schools across the world which are running on the education pattern of “Theory of Multiple Intelligence”. He has also written extensively on creativity, leadership, and professional ethics. His latest book Five Minds for the Future was published in April 2007.
