Dermatoglyphics – the discipline is relatively young and rapidly developing. In the words of Alexei Vladimirovich Vlasov, the Chairman of the Council of the International Association of dermatoglyphics, dermatoglyphics to always get new frames. The study of fingerprints of people helps to determine the character, temperament, behavioural type of human adaptation in society.
In dermatoglyphics are three basic types of patterns: loop, arch and curl. It is for their ratio on the fingers, scientists can make certain conclusions about the media these patterns.
About a third of people on the fingers meet the loop – patterns that resemble a lasso, directed generally in the direction of the little finger. These people – the carriers of norms in terms of socialization, they adapt well to life situations, friendly, moderately secretive, and moderately honest.
People who on your toes curls, constantly trying to change the world, they can make a brilliant discovery. These are people with great potential, but often they are out of place in his time, or his environment may prove inadequate. According to the psychiatrist and physiologist Nikolai Bogdanov, “namely, who do you think “jerk”, the most common are swirls on the fingertips”.
People with dominant fingers arcs – motivated, confident. They know that problems cannot be avoided they need to be immediately addressed. In the methods of solving problems, such people are not shy. They are not subject to stress. However, their weakness is weak capacity for psychological combinatorics and weak adaptation. They are more slayers than jewelers.
You also need to say that the poorer the dermatoglyphics in humans, the harder it is to adapt in society, the more problems he will face.
Clearly, any systematic knowledge requires application. The dermatoglyphics in that respect all is well – she started with the practice, Galton collaborated with CSU and participated in the preparation of fingerprint records. Interestingly, the methods Galton was recognized only in 1911, when fingerprints were found stolen from the Museum of the “Mona Lisa”. Since that time, the dermatoglyphics (fingerprinting section) is a recognized discipline that helps find the offender.
Dermatoglyphics is today and accepted method of medical diagnosis. The fact that the patterns on the fingers are formed in the womb for 3 to 5 months pregnant with tissues of the nervous system. Skin patterns are individual and do not change throughout life, therefore, dermatoglyphic analysis is a very convenient method. The pattern on the fingers, even before receiving the chromosomal picture, the child can diagnose down syndrome, the syndrome Shereshevsky – Turner and the x-trisomy and other diseases.
Finally, does dermatoglyphic studies in the field of human activity where a genetic predisposition means a lot in professional sports. In the laboratory of sports anthropology of the all-Russian Institute of physical culture for 15 years studying the dermatoglyphics of our Olympic team.
Years of analysis have shown that dermatoglyphic characteristics of athletes in different sports are different. In speed-strength sports, where you want to perform the exercise as quickly as possible, the most common simple patterns raised bed and the lowest score (number of scallops within a pattern).
Athletes, for whose sports complex is characteristic of coordination is found more complex drawing patterns. The middle position on these indicators is a sports endurance and static stability.
In General, the more complex in terms of coordinating a complex combination of patterns found in athletes. Speaking conditionally, people with arches on the fingers more than any other good in the forwards, and curls at the defenders.
A separate branch of the science of patterns on the fingers is ethnic dermatoglyphics. Anthropologists specializing in dermatoglyphics, collected a lot of material in this discipline. Interestingly, the poorest of dermatoglyphic pattern is observed among Europeans, as the distance from Europe to the South it becomes more complicated. This may explain the agreeableness of Western civilization and intravartolo peculiar to the East.
It is also noticed that such a pattern as the curls on the fingers often can be found among the peoples living in extreme situation: the aborigines of the North – the Aleuts, the Chukchi, natives of Tierra del Fuego, Australia, Tibet. People with whorls on the fingers, easier to survive in harsh natural conditions. Their culture is more contemplative.
