WHAT IS (DMIT) Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence test or Brain Mapping Test?
Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence test (DMIT) is a scientific study of fingerprint patterns that helps in understanding an individual’s potential and personality. D.M.I. Assessment technique has been developed by scientists and research experts from World renowned universities and is based on knowledge from Genetics, Embryology, Dermatoglyphics, Psychology and Neuroscience. The study of Dermatoglyphics is more than 200 years old. In former USSR, it was used to find talented sportsmen for Olympic Games of 1970’s. As it turned out, the USSR took home 50 gold medals in 1972 and 125 in 1976. By the 1980’s, China had also adopted the Russian method. Medical experts, with observation, recording, comparison, induction and clinical experiences, confirmed that fingerprints provide accurate analysis of a person’s Multiple Intelligences and potential. Traditionally, IQ is used as a measurement tool of one’s level of intelligence. Dr. Howard Gardner introduced in his book, Frames of Mind, that man has at least 9 intelligences, and everyone has different proportions of these intelligences. We are able to discover our congenital intelligence, character traits and unknown potential through Dermatoglyphics. Advanced countries such as USA, Japan and Taiwan have adopted dermatoglyphics technology in the field of education, human resource management, recruitment and even identifying gifted children. The DMI test has also helped lakhs of students in China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan & India for the past 10 years and is continuing to do so successfully.
Prof. Howard Gardner & M.I. Theory
Intelligence is the capacity to do something useful in the society in which we live. Intelligence is the ability to respond successfully to new situations and the capacity to learn from one’s past experiences.” -Dr. Howard Gardner, Author, Frames of Mind and Multiple Intelligences Dr. Howard Gardner, a professor of cognition and education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, developed his theory of Multiple Intelligences in 1983. Simply put, Dr. Gardner posits that people employ several different types of intelligence, rather than one general type. This theory aroused and attracted the warm response from the whole world, especially in the Education and Psychology arena. Actually, no one uses just one type of intelligence; we all use several in our daily lives. Some are stronger than others for each person. Dr. Howard Gardner says that our schools and culture focus most of their attention on linguistic and logical – mathematical intelligence. We esteem the highly articulate or logical people of our culture. However, Dr. Gardner says that we should also place equal attention on individuals who show gifts in other intelligences: the artists, architects, musicians, naturalists, designers, dancers, therapists, entrepreneurs and others who enrich the world in which we live. Unfortunately, many children who have these gifts don’t receive much reinforcement for them in school. Many of these kids, in fact, end up being labeled “learning disabled”, having ADD (attention deficit disorder) or simply underachievers. When their unique ways of thinking and learning are not addressed by a heavily linguistic or logical – mathematical classroom. The good news is that the theory of multiple intelligence has grabbed the attention of many educators around the world, and hundreds of schools are currently using its philosophy to redesign the way it educates children.
Reasoning behind Gardner’s Theory
Application of DMIT
Helps child to develop their advantageous fields. Reinforces child’s weak fields and provide a suitable learning method. Enables children to learn effectively.
Helps to choose a suitable learning style and method Helps to choose a suitable course/area of development depending on one’s strengths.
Helps to fully understand the strong and weak fields. Helps to know the most suitable learning style and to position in the most suitable field of work/study.
Helps to manage human resources and customer management more effectively. Helps to reduce operating cost and increase corporate value.
Benefits of DMIT:
Comprehensive : Accurately understand one’s multiple intelligences, strengths and weaknesses, and the most effective learning style.
Objectivity : Unbiased towards cultural background, results are not affected by environment, health, emotional factors Stability : Reliable genetic information as fingerprints never change and need only be done once in a lifetime. No age limit : Age range from 1 ~ 100 Simple : Simple, convenient, no adverse effects, not comprising of any questions whatsoever.
The human brain is made up of billions of interconnected neurons; the patterns of interaction between these neurons are represented as thoughts and emotional states. Every interaction between neurons creates a minuscule electrical discharge; alone these charges are impossible to measure from outside the skull. However, the activity created by hundreds of thousands of concurrent discharges aggregates into waves which can be measured.
Different brain states are the result of different patterns of neural interaction. These patterns lead to waves characterized by different amplitudes and frequencies; for example waves between 12 and 30 hertz, Beta Waves, are associated with concentration while waves between 8 and 12 hertz, Alpha Waves, are associated with relaxation and a state of mental calm. (The contraction of muscles is also associated with unique wave patterns, isolating these patterns is how some EEG devices detect blinks.)
All electrical activity produces these waves (even light bulbs), thus all electrical devices create some level of ambient “noise”; this “noise” interferes with the waves emanating from the brain, this is why most EEG devices will pick up readings even if they are not on a person's head. Measuring mental activity through these waves is like trying to eavesdrop on a conversation at a loud concert. In the past, EEG devices circumvented this problem by measuring these signals in environments where electrical activity is strictly controlled and increasing the signal strength of the data coming from the brain through the application of a conductive solution.
Raw Brainwaves and Power Spectrum
To have a better understanding of EEG technology, you first have to know what an EEG is. As defined by the Mayo Clinic, an
EEG is “A test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, flat metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp.“
Your brain cells, which are commonly referred to as neurons, communicate via electrical impulses and are constantly active and managing how you think, react, and interact with the world, even when you’re asleep! Essentially, what we call “thought” is an ever-changing concert of electrical impulses. The average human brain has about 100 billion neurons, and an EEG test can track changes in neuron activity that may be useful in diagnosing brain disorders.
It’s important to note that an EEG test is perfectly safe for both children and adults. This is because it is a passive (listening) device that captures brainwave signals without emitting any harmful electrical signals of its own.
EEG bands provide insight into our mental and emotional states of mind at any given time. But, how does one go from a squiggly waveform to a meaningful interpretation? The answer is algorithms. EEG algorithms, also known as interpretive models, help to identify and quantify categories of mental or emotional states.
