As parents, we want our children to be the best in what they want to become when they grow up. We want them to develop their talents, improve on their weaknesses, play their strengths to their advantage and help them reach their full potential to be able to live a life with purpose.
Our parenting style and child-rearing philosophies, as well as the environment with which we have immersed our children which includes the school, the faith we believe in and the social issues and concerns we find worth pursuing are some of the factors that will help us guide our children, as well as ourselves, in our life’s path and quest for living a full life.
As a teacher, specifically a special education teacher, it is my goal to help my students do the same as well: provide opportunities for my students to reach their full potential and work around their behavioural and learning difficulties.
There are a lot of opportunities for people to explore their innate abilities. Children, before formally beginning schooling attend informal lessons bent on developing their talents in singing, dancing, acting, creative skills, sports skills and musical skills. Some move on to more difficult levels and continue to hone their skills well into their adulthood.
Some, however, like their parents, are grasping in the dark, enrolling in one kind of lesson and going to another after a while. Basketball for last year’s summer, soccer and guitar lessons every weekend, singing lessons for this year’s summer, drums lessons for the next summer, and so on and so forth, just for one child. In the end, these children become Jack of all Trades and Master of None.
Parents are baffled what went wrong and with all expenses going down the drain, they feel frustrated and still not knowledgeable enough as to what their children can give focus on and develop further. They try new skills again, year after year, sometimes hitting the right stuff that their children are good at to keep doing continuously. Most of the time, both the parents and the children are hitting a wall which makes them go back to where they started, at zero level.
There is however, one particular assessment which can help parents and teachers like me, know the concealed abilities of the children, based on their multiple intelligences so that they are steered in the right direction, according to the results of the assessment.
This assessment is called Dermatoglyph Multiple Intelligence Test or DMIT
What is DMIT and how will the results help in knowing people’s strengths and weaknesses through the different facets of multiple intelligences?
DMIT or Dermatoglyph Multiple Intelligence Test is an assessment done using a fingerprint scan to interpret which among the 16 multiple intelligences are innate in a person’s abilities.
How is this possible? Dermatoglyphics is the science of fingerprints.
It was in 1823 when Joannes Evangelista Purkinji researched protruding fingerprints on human palms and toe prints on the soles of the feet as well as the protruding ridge of the soles.
In the publication called “Nature”, Henry Faulds and W.J. Herschel recommended the use of fingerprints to identify people.
It was in 1892 when Sir Francis Galton pointed out the commonality in the fingerprints of siblings, twins and intergeneration genetics.
Harris Hawthorne Wilder in 1902, established the systematic foundation of pattern studies or morphology and genetics. He also did research on racial palm and finger prints.
The term “Dermatogylphs” was coined by Harold Cummins in 1926 for the study of fingerprints. Dermatoglyphs then became a professional knowledge.
The five types of fingerprints and its unique personality traints was a study done by the Society for the Study of Physiological Patterns back in 1930.
Brain surgeon professor Dr. Penfield pointed out the close link and relationship between fingerprints and the brain.
Each fingerprint corresponds to a certain type of personality, as researched by Noel Jaquin in 1958.
For those with chromosomal abnormality, Solton pointed out in 1963, the percentage of abnormal fingerprints would increase.
Professor Roger W. Sperry and his co-researchers did research on the left and right brain functions as well as the dual brain theory with which they were awarded a Nobel Prize in Biomedicine. Howard Gardner in 1985 introduced the Multiple Intelligence theory.
Working in the academe, Professor Lin Ruei Bin of Taiwan, applied DMIT to his students. He was able to identify the talents as well as the learning styles of the children where they were able to maximize the identified talents and strengths early on.
It was in 2004 when W.G.S.I. started using high technology to scan fingerprints. It was this company with a massive database of millions of data and statistical foundation that brought the application of Dermatoglyphics in Asian countries.
It was in 2012 when DMIT was introduced in the Philippines through I.M.S. Now called Encycligent Marketing Services.
Encycligent came from the words “encyclopaedia” and “intelligent”. Their logo uses a light bulb concept to assist in the enlightenment of a person. Eight (8) rays symbolizing the 8 Multiple Intelligences.
DMIT and Encycligent marketing Services aims to provide individuals assessement and interpretation based on their fingerprints to help them develop their full potentials, based on the multiple intelligences result. Encycligent and DMIT provides educational, training and employment consultancy to those who will avail of the DMIT.
You only need to do it once in your lifetime and it will create a prodigious impact in your life.
