On the ground, there is no one with the same pattern on your toes as you. Scientists dermatoglyphics can tell by the patterns on the fingers not only about human predisposition to disease, but also about his professionalism.
A person standing at the origins of dermatoglyphics (so called science of patterns on the skin) was a cousin of Charles Darwin, Francis Galton. It was a scientist with a truly unbridled thirst for science and research. Relationship with Darwin defined scientific way Galton, he was a passionate supporter of the theory of his brother, and therefore sought to prove that evolution is not only not over, but in need of correction. Galton recognized and founder of eugenics, which gave its terrible fruit in the racial theories of Nazi Germany.
To dermatoglyphics Galton came after in early 1888 Goad scientific society Royal Institute ordered him to review at the input, then in vogue bertilonazh – method of identifying criminals, which was based on the Measurement of the various parts of the body.
Fulton is widely looking at things and of methods of identification also mentioned paltsepechatanie. May 25 the same year, a scientist reads his report, which presented its vision and problems.
Four years later, Galton had already published a book about finger prints – Fingerprints. So in the scientific world, there dermatoglyphics. However, I must say that the term itself came later, in 1926, 42 of the American Association of Anatomists Congress.
Dermatoglyphics – discipline is a relatively young and rapidly growing. According to Alexei V. Vlasov, Chairman of the Board of the International Association of dermatoglyphics in dermatoglyphics constantly get new frames. The study of fingerprints of people helps determine the character, temperament, type of behavioral adaptation in human society.
In dermatoglyphics are three main types of patterns: loop, arch and curl. That is their relation to the fingers, scientists can make any conclusions about the media these patterns.
About a third of people on the fingers meet the loop – patterns that resemble lasso directed, usually in the direction of the little finger. These people – media standards in terms of socialization, they are well adapted to the situations of life, friendly, fairly secretive, and rather frank.
People who have curls on the fingers, are constantly trying to change the world, they can make a great discovery. These are people with a lot of potential, but often they are out of place in his own time or their environment may be inadequate. According to the psychiatrist and Psychophysiology Nikolai Bogdanov it from someone considered a jerk , the most frequent curls on the fingertips.
People with prevailing on the fingers of arcs – purposeful, self-confident. They know that it is impossible to bypass the problem, they need to be immediately addressed. In the methods of solving the problems these people are not shy. They hardly prone to stress. However, their weakness in the weak capacity for psychological combinatorics and weak adaptation. They would rather Grunt than jewelers.
You also have to say that poorer than dermatoglyphics in humans, the harder it is to adapt to the society, the more problems he will face
It is clear that any systematic knowledge requires applications to. In dermatoglyphics in this respect, all good – and it started with practice – Galton collaborated with forensic and participated in the drafting of fingerprint card files. Interestingly, the technique Galton was recognized only in 1911, when using the fingerprint was found stolen from the museum Mona Lisa. Since that time, dermatoglyphics (her profile fingerprinting) is a recognized discipline, helping to find the offender.
Dermatoglyphics and is now an accepted method of medical diagnosis. The fact that the patterns on the fingers are formed in utero by 3 – 5 months pregnant with tissues of the nervous system. Skin patterns are unique and do not change throughout life, so dermatoglyphic analysis is a very convenient method. Buy the pattern on the fingers, before receiving the chromosomal pattern, the child can diagnose Down syndrome, Shereshevsky – Turner and Klinefelter’s and other diseases.
Finally, does dermatoglyphic study conduct in the sphere of human activity where a genetic predisposition means a lot – in professional sports. Laboratory of Anthropology Sports All-Russian Institute of Physical Education for 15 years studying dermatoglyphics our Olympic team.
Long-term analysis has shown that the dermatoglyphic characteristics of athletes in different sports are different. In the power-speed sports where you want to exercise as quickly as possible, the most frequent simple patterns and the smallest ridge count (the number of crests in the pattern).
Athletes, for whose peculiar sports complex coordination occurs more complex pattern of patterns.
The middle position of these indicators take sports endurance and static stability.
In general, the more complex in terms of coordination of sport, the more complex combination of patterns found in athletes.
Speaking conventionally, people with arches on the fingers of the other more suited to hitters, and with swirls – to defenders.
A separate branch of the science of patterns on the fingers is ethnic dermatoglyphics. Anthropologists specializing in dermatoglyphics, built a huge reservoir of material in this discipline. It is interesting that the poorest dermatoglyphic pattern is observed in Europeans, as the distance from Europe to the south it becomes more complicated. This may explain the extroversion of Western civilization and introverted inherent East.
It is also noted that such a pattern as the curls on the fingers you’ll find most of the peoples living in an extreme situation: the natives of the North – the Aleuts, Chukchi, Australia, Tibet. People with curls on the fingers easier to survive in harsh environmental conditions. Their culture is more contemplative.
