Fingerprint Patterns

Fingerprints are a result of genetic or environmental factors on the fetus. There are 11 fingerprint patterns which throw light on ones’ personal traits, strengths, weakness and innate abilities and qualities.


In loops, the ridges are tuned backward turned but they do not twist. A loop pattern has only one circuit - one delta. Almost 60 to 70% of fingerprints are loops.


Whorl is the fingerprint where the ridges make a turn through at least one circuit. One pattern that contains two or more deltas will be a whorl. Typically whorls are found in about 25 to 35% in 5% of the fingerprints.


In Arch, the ridges of the finger run continuously from one side of the finger to the other and make no backward turn. Arch occurs in about 5% of encountered fingerprints.

Ulnar Loop

These loops are not very common and most of the times will be found on the index fingers

Double Loop

It has two distinct and separate shoulders for each core, two deltas and one or more ridges that make a complete circuit

Radial Loop

The flow of this pattern runs from thumb towards the little of the hand

Plain Whorl

The ridges in these whorls make a turn of one complete circuit with two deltas and therefore are circular or spiral in shape.

Central Pocket Loop Whorl

These whorl ridges make one complete circuit and may be oval, circular, spiral or any variant of a circle.

Accidental Whorl

Whorls containing ridges that match the characteristics of a particular whorl sub-grouping are referred to as accidental whorls.

Plain Arch

It starts on one side of the finger and the ridge then slightly cascades upward.

Tented Arch

The tented arch lies in the ridges in the center and is not continuous like the plain arch.

Connection Of Fingerprint With Brain

Right brain is corresponding to left hand and left brain is corresponding to right hand

Right brain is corresponding to left hand and left brain is corresponding to right hand. During the earlier days, when American doctors discovered a strange case where a baby was born without a brain. In this case, the absence of brain is associated with the absence of fingerprints as well. Cases like this repeated throughout history, leading medical experts to believe that the brain is absolutely linked to the fingerprints. Neurobiologists point out that our fingerprints development is synchronized with that of the neocortex. For example, children with Down Syndrome have fingerprints with distinguishable characteristics.

Canadian neurology professor Penfield published the chart between brain regions and bodily functions. In the chart, the relationship between fingerprints and the brain is also pointed out.

Japanese medical expert professor pointed out that the fingers are closely related to the brain hemisphere. Therefore, this has been widely used in many fields.

Multiple Intelligences

Dr. Howard Gardner, a renowned scientist, psychologist and educationist, proposed the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Dr. Gardner has written extensively on creativity, leadership, and professional ethics. In his 1983 book - Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences; he explained that different people have different kinds of intelligences.

According to the Theory of Multiple Intelligences, there are eight intelligences. In order to capture the full range of abilities and talents that people possess, Dr. Gardner theorizes that people do not have just an intellectual capacity, but have many kinds of intelligence, including musical, interpersonal, spatial-visual, and linguistic intelligences. Learning more about multiple intelligences can help you understand your own strengths better.
