HANDS & IQ - Guidelines for an intelligence assessment via your hands!

Post  Martijn (admin) on Mon Jan 10, 2011 1:09 pm



Recently I introduced in another discussion the Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test (DMIT). In my review I described e.g. that the DMIT product is based on an alternative concept of intelligence, so it should better not be associated with the traditional concept of IQ.

Nevertheless, one could wonder: do hands provide a clue that relates to our IQ?

My short answer would be a simple: 'yes'!

I need more time to describe my longer answer. But yesterday I have written my first episode in a series about this topic (other clues will be described in new episodes):

• HANDS & IQ – How to recognize a smart hand: 1 – hand shape!


THE 'HAND INDEX':

This episode describes how studies have indicated that IQ displays positive correlations with 'body height', but negative correlations with the so-called 'hand index'.

NOTICE: The 'hand index' is defined as: 100 x the quotient of 'hand width' with 'hand length'. The picture below displays how the measure 'hand width' at the metacarpals (a point of reference could be to make the measurement at a point close to the starting point of the life line and the head line). 'Hand length' is measured as the distance between the upper wrist crease and the tip of the middle finger.



HIGH 'HAND INDEX' & LOW IQ:

Mental retardation is usually featured with a high 'hand index' (such as in Down syndrome & fragile X-syndrome), while a low 'hand index' is typically seen in more intelligent people.


LOW 'HAND INDEX' & HIGH IQ:

Albert Einstein (German expert in physics) has often been described by experts as a person with an exceptionally high IQ. Interestingly... for a white male he had a rather low 'hand index' (left hand: below 42.5; right hand: below 44.5) - the average for US and UK males appears to be close to 45.

Another example is described in my blog post:
HANDS & IQ – How to recognize a smart hand: 1 – hand shape!

Taking this one step at a time.
NOTICE: The 'hand index' is defined as: 100 x the quotient of 'hand width' with 'hand length'.
what does that mean? sorry if I missed it but I didn't find a definition of "quotient" in any of your posts/links. is it hand width divided by hand length (from wrist to tip of middle finger?) x 100?

No problem... I'll explain it once more (though I believe you were already able to measure your 'hand index' a few weeks ago):

Hand index = 100 x ('hand width' dived by 'hand length')

For example: if your 'hand width' = 8 cm, and your 'hand length' = 18 cm... then the 'hand index' becomes:

100 x ( 8 / 18 ) = 44.4

I hope this makes sense now?

hand dance ...Okay... I have just written my second episode about intelligence:

HANDS & IQ – How to recognize a smart hand: 2 – the AtD-angle!


I can also report that I found a related alternative for the AtD-angle. I will unveal the details here at a later stage... but in a nut-shell: it appears that in a large majority of people who have Down syndrome in both hands the distance between the a-triradius and the d-triradius is LARGER than the distance between the b-triradius and the highest positioned triradius below the heart line (80%). While this characteristics is actually quite rare in normal people (1%).

This could indicate that this new dermatoglyphic marker could turn out to have a high significance than for example the high AtD-angle and the simian line / Sydney line - in the perspective of IQ assessment.



The picture below provides an overview of common dermatoglyphic markers: the triradii can be recognized as the 'dermatoglyphic bricks' (triangle-shaped, not rectangle like a normal brick) in the construction of the fingerprints & the palmar dermatoglyphics.

Dear Martijin,
Yes, I agree with you that hands provide a clue that relates to our IQ. Dermatoglyphic studies have indicated that the ATD-angle provides a significant clue about intelligence.

Will you please give real life examples, if possible? I think it was possible to tell the difference easily only when both types of the human palms pictures were juxtaposed, especially in ATD angle matters Thank you.

Hello Parender,

What type of 'example' do you exactly have in mind?

Basically, I am more interested to collect & describe related materials in order to work out the models which describe how the hand correlates about intelligence.

I am asking because I am very aware that any single case study might not me helpfull in this process, so at this stage of my research I am not interested to take the initiative regarding presenting examples (but I will consider that at a later stage when I have been able to analyse more details, which will probably result in a new theory, etc.).

Though, I will be happy to make comments when others are interested to get feedback about specific examples (high IQ or low IQ, etc)


PS. I hope my words make sense.regarding why I put no priority on presenting examples at this stage.

... by the way, regarding 'hand index' & IQ: the following data provides some examples which illustrate that the 'hand index' of various nations correlates with IQ:

Japan: IQ = 105, 'hand index' = 42.8 ('hand index/(sqrt body height)' = 3.33);
Netherlands: IQ = 102, 'hand index' = 45.4 ('hand index/(sqrt body height)' = 3.41);
UK: IQ = 100, 'hand index' = 44.0 ('hand index/(sqrt body height)' = 3.37);
China: IQ = 100, 'hand index' = 44.1 ('hand index/(sqrt body height)' = 3.45);
USA: IQ = 98; 'hand index' = 45.2 ('hand index/(sqrt body height)' = 3.45);
Mauritius: IQ = 81, 'hand index' = 43.8 ('hand index/(sqrt body height)' = ??);
Nigeria: IQ = 67; 'hand index' = 46.9 ('hand index/(sqrt body height)' = 3.70).

Data + sources are available in the discussion (see 2nd page):
Which country has the largest hands in the world?


NOTICE: It appears that the combination of body height & 'hand index' provides an even more significant clue about IQ - but while body height correlates positive with IQ, 'hand index' correlates negative with IQ.

So, it appears that regarding IQ: nature sort of decided to compensate body height via e.g. 'hand index'...!!

For example: shorter populations (like e.g. Japan) have a relatively smal 'hand index', and longer populations (like e.g. The Netherlands) have a relatively larger 'hand index'. So, it appears that nature.


And by the way....

- Now we can also understand why men are longer than women (= one 'plus' point for men regarding IQ) ... and the 'hand index' in women is usually smaller than in men (= one 'plus' point for women regarding IQ).

- Now we can also understand why it is probably not a coincidence why Down syndrome is featured with a large 'hand index'... and SHORT body height (= two 'negative' points for Down syndrome regarding IQ).

- And now we can also understand a bit more why Chimpansees (average body height = 170cm) are more intelligent than Gorillas (average body height = 170cm): because while chimps have a likewise body length compared to gorillas, the 'hand index' of chimps is really much smaller!!

(The following article provides more info about primate hands)


The hand of a Chimpansee


The hand of a Gorilla

LOW 'HAND INDEX' & HIGH IQ:

Albert Einstein (German expert in physics) has often been described by experts as a person with an exceptionally high IQ. Interestingly... for a white male he had a rather low 'hand index' (left hand: below 42.5; right hand: below 44.5) - the average for US and UK males appears to be close to 45.

Another example is described in my blog post:
HANDS & IQ – How to recognize a smart hand: 1 – hand shape!

Beyond the examples regarding the hands of Albert Einstein and the Zagreb study (mentioned in the blogpost)... I have found another example which illustrates that a 'low hand index' tends to correlate with high IQ:

People who have Marfan syndrome are not only known for having a high low hand index (usually described for that syndrome as 'arachnodactyly' - a.k.a spider fingers), Marfan syndrome is also known for being featured with an above average IQ - typically the average IQ in Marfan syndrome is described as 109!!!

And... it also looks like that finger length relative to palm breadth/palm length might also provide a clue about IQ. So far it looks like that high finger length in perspective to palm length might typically manifest in higher verbal ability (compared to performance ability). I hope to be able to present more details at a later moment)

Just wondering how the index of IS comes to 160 using the given formula (width/length*100)? My calculation is about 97 if palm is based upon.If we base our calculations upon hands ,then it comes to about 56. Will you plz tell me how to calculate?

Are the width/length in question of palms or of hands ? In pictures you have indicated measurement of palm ,whereas hands are mentioned above.

Hi GM,

Hand length = palm length + finger length.

Sorry, I don't understand your words "... how the index of IS comes to 160". Please, you are welcome to explain your question once again.

Regarding your example: 97 or 56, only the number 56 could relate to 'hand index'; 97 is the 'palm index' - though I never mentioned it in this discussion.

By the way, you refered to some pictures of mine, but 'hand index' and 'palm index' are not included at all in pictures where the 'finger length index' is mentioned.

wave


PS. I think you got somewhere confused in the terminology; maybe you are interested to present your measurements for finger length, palm breadth and palm length... then I will demonstrate how to calculate the 'hand index', 'palm index' and 'finger index' from your measurements.

Martijn ,definitely I am confused how to calculate and relate it to IQ. I referred to Einstein's 160 score. I will appreciate if you further explain all 3 indexes one by one and their relationships with IQ level. I cannot post the pics I was referring to as I have problem in uploading and posting pictures in spite of pass words are the same for
the forum and pictures hosting site,as advised by you

Aha, you were referring to Einstein's hand! (You had not mentioned his name at all... Smile )

Well, first of all I have only suggested that the 'hand index' gives a clue regarding IQ.

(Additionally, I only mentioned that finger length relative to palm breadth/palm length might provide a clue for higher verbal IQ - relative to performance IQ; so I was not suggesting that 'finger length index' or 'palm index' also provides a clue for higher IQ)

By the way, I hadn't refered to 'palm index' at all... untill you posted your '97' number which you found for palm breadth versus palm length


For Einstein's left hand I found his 'hand index' to be close to 0.42 (in my printed copy of his left hand I found Einstein's hand breadth to be 11.0 cm and his hand length 26.1 cm).

Now, 0.42 is a rather low score for a male (because males usually score above 0.44). So therefore I associated his low 'hand index' with his high IQ

GM, does this answer your questions?


PS. By the way, I would recommend not to use Einstein's right hand print for making measurements - because I recently I found evidence that Einstein's right hand print does not give an accurate impression for Einstein's finger length: in the photos we can see that his finger length is definitely not much shorter than his hand breadth (as suggested by especially his right hand print), see:
http://www.modernhandreadingforum.com/t122-the-hands-of-albert-einstein-person-of-the-20th-century?highlight=Einstein

(In his right hand print his finger length appears to be inaccurate when we compare it to his finger length in photos; so I think we should better not use his right hand print for making measurements)

Ahaaaa...! You refered to Einstein's IQ of 160 in the picture below.

Sorry GM, you must have misunderstood that picture completely... because that picture does not relate to DMIT at all, nor to any other aspect of the hand.

It's just a picture that I found on the internet describing Einstein's rather remarkable high IQ, so the number '160' does not relate to his hands at all! By the way, the picture clearly describes:

"Einstein's IQ = 160"

(It doesn't describe Einstein's 'hand index'; sorry, I apologize that it took me a while before I understood where you had found the number '160'... I had assumed that it somehow came from your measurements because you described that it related to the 'hand index', etc. But that problem is solved now!)


PS. Just to avoid any further confusion: GM, please be aware that my hand size measurements should not be associated with DMIT either (because DMIT only relates to fingerprints & dermatoglyphics).



NOTICE: The picture below does not relate to DMIT nor my hand size studies (it only describes Einstein's IQ)

Ahaa ! that was the bone of confusion and I had been trying to relate with the diagram.I am clear now ! Here in Pakistan mostly index , 100*( hand width /hand length), is around 44 as you referred.

A local higher secondary school's management has promised me to get the hand prints of 5 top students of two sections each after summer vacations.Let me apply this formula to them!

Thanks for your valued feed back.

Thanks GM,

Nice to heart that it all makes sense now.
And I am looking forward to your findings regarding hand dimensions of those 5 top-students!

Thumbs up!

Re: HANDS & IQ - Guidelines for an intelligence assessment via your hands!

Post  Martijn (admin) on Thu Aug 23, 2012 11:54 am


thinking ... I have now also found some evidence suggesting that the hand index in isolation does not provide a reliable measure for IQ, see:
http://www.dtic.mil/cgi-bin/GetTRDoc?AD=ADA103181


Because I have found some hand anthropometry materials related to army-pilots from various countries, where the average hand index (based on 8 populations) is 46.2... which is clearly higher than the international average for males.

Now, since pilots can be considered as a rather intelligent sub-population of the army forces... this suggests that a high hand index can be featured with high intelligence.

However, we should also consider here the possibility that other sub-populations in the army might have an even higher hand index, because it would make sense it many of the soldiers have an 'earth hand shape' (my elemental hand shape study suggests that a typical earth hand shape is featured with an 'hand index' of about 49.9!)

Smile ... to be continued!

Here's an old American study (1967) where the results suggest that even though the distribution of fingerprint patterns in mongols (Down syndrome) is very different from normals... fingerprint patterns in mental retardates are generally quite similar compared to normal. The results suggest in general that one can not assess intelligence from the 10 fingerprints in an individual, simply because significant parts of each of the three groups have fingerprints combinations that are see in all three groups.

Nevertheless, it is interesting to see:

- Double 'monomorph hands' are much more common in both the mongols (117 out of 363 = 32.2%) and the retardates (34 out of 281 = 12.1%), compared to normals (14 out of 299 = 4.7%)
- The distribution of arches is interesting, because in normals are arches far most common in normals in every finger except for the thumbs (where arches are reported to be slightly less common in normals compared to both the mongols and retardates)... so here we see again that the distribution is likely a crucial factor!

The table below describes the tendencies for the individual fingers; the article also describes the distributions on the 10 fingers for every individual included in the study.

Here's more a detailed analysis based on fingerprint combinations (in the 5 fingers) confirming what was already described in my previous post:

"Do 5-finger fingerprint distribtions in mental retardation differ from the generalpopulation?

SHORT ANSWER: No, likely not; though monomorph hands in both hands are much more common.

LONG ANSWER: Among the Top 15 combinations in mental retardation there is not a single combination which is not seen in the Western control groups (Americans, British & Dutch); the percentages for the individual combis also do not vary much from similar the Western control groups.

However, the number of retarded individuals displaying monomorph hands (10 ulnar loops or 10 whorls) in both hands is more than twice more common than in control populations."
