Fingerprints can reveal a whole lot of things about a person, like their intelligence, personality and talents, to name a few. Dermatoglyphics is a branch of science that is dedicated to the study of the mount, the ridges, and the lines that form your fingerprints. And even though many scientists might have written it off, dermatoglyphics has many believers and is also widely used in palmistry.

Owing to this science, we now have 11 different types of patterns in fingerprints that have a few personality traits associated with them. Check out what your fingerprints reveal about you.
