Did you all break out rubber stamp ink pads to print your finger prints just to take this test?

At first I was all like, "Do we need to find deep psychological meaning in everything?" :roll: But when I went on the site and read about the personality traits about my own fingerprints it was so similar it made me wonder. :chin:

Maybe you could start a database in your computer of quotes by subject.

now THAT would be a good wintertime project :idea:

I just looked at my fingerprints directly on my fingertips in a bright oblique light.

I have to ask: Does everyone else have one type for their fingers & another for their thumbs...or is it just another oddity?

interestingly enough, on my right index and my left middle finger is a simple arch fingerprint whereas the rest of my fingers have the ulnar loop. Hmmmmm.... :scratch:

I think it's probably a bunch of nonsense, much like palm reading.

Mine are mostly whorls, with a few loops. Not sure about the ones on my toes. Do toes count?

pretty sure it's just fingers, as I've never heard of toe prints, though as infants we've all had footprints taken.

I can see my toe prints, but they are harder to read.

I'm extremely flexible. Actually I'm abnormally flexible. I'm not sure how useful it is to be able to examine one's toes up close, however. Maybe good for painting toenails, I guess.

In highschool some friends and I took the the tour of the FBI national HQ in Washington right across the street from the Smithsonian.

Our guide, who was also a detective, showed us an exhibits about finger prints. Told us that one notorious gangster ( John Dillinger? Or someone like that-cant recall now) had surgery on his finger tips so he would have NO finger print pattern at all- just smooth blank skin. Trouble is the cops still caught him from the prints made by the bumps on the hand at the base the fingers above the palms. The guide said those prints have the same pattern as your fingertip prints. So I guess that youre supposed to have the same print everywhere.

I wonder why more crooks don't wear latex surgical gloves for their crimes.

My guess is because most such crimes are not well planned out nor committed by actual "professional" theives? Seems like the vast percent of them are committed by people who are already making plenty of bad life choices for various reasons and planning ahead / functional critical thought is not usually their strong point. Oh, and drug addiction is statistically involved somewhere. It seems at least once a year the press picks up the story of a thief who a) leaves their wallet behind b) falls asleep/gets stoned and is present when the police arrive or c) breaks into some sort of building with police already present (my favorite was a cat-burgler a few years back that was working a hotel. How was he to know there was a cop convention being held there?).

Regarding the gangster & lack of fingerprints, I think that would drive me nearly mad. Those ridges are incredibly important for both grip and tactile sensing.
