Correlations of indices of personality traits with indexes of finger and palmar dermatoglyphics of practically healthy Ukrainian men
The search for new psychodermatoglyphic correlations will greatly increase the possibilities of this method and will accelerate the introduction of scientific developments into the daily practice of clinicians, criminologists, police and other specialties. The purpose of the work is to establish the peculiarities of the relationship between the indexes of the finger and palmar dermatoglyphics and the characteristics of the personality traits of practically healthy Ukrainian men. From the data bank of the materials of the research center of National Pirogov Memorial Medical University, Vinnytsya were taken the primary questionnaires of indicators of personality characteristics and dermatoglyphic indicators of 92 practically healthy men residents of Podillia region of Ukraine in the third generation. Processing of indicators of finger and palmar dermatoglyphics was performed according to the method of Cummins H. and Midlo Ch. (1961) in the statement by Gladkova T. D. (1966). To assess the characteristics of personality characteristics we determined properties of temperament (according to Eysenck), anxiety (according to Spielberger), accentuated personality traits (according to Shmishek), motivational orientation of the personality (according to Rotter), as well as features of the emotional organization of personality, aggressiveness, level of personality manifestations (according to Luscher). Correlation analysis was performed in the “Statistica 6.1” license package using Pearson statistics. It has been established that in the majority of cases, indicators of personality traits and dermatoglyphic indices of almost healthy men show single direct and inverse, mostly weak forces (r=0.21 – 0.29 and r=-0.21 – -0.28, respectively) correlations. The multiple nature of such correlations is established only between the Luscher gray color index and the left hand I, III and IV fingers and the left hand I and II fingers ridge count, the total ridge count of both hands, the total ridge count and the left hand delta index (r=-0.23 – -0.28) and between most indicators by Rotter subjective scale and the presence of a pattern on the thenar of the corresponding palm (on the right hand – r=0.31 - 0.37 and on the left hand – r=0.22 - 0.29). The results of quantitative analysis of significant correlations showed that between the indexes of the finger dermatoglyphics and the indicators of personality traits according to Eysenck and Luscher, most relationships are inverse, and with Spielberger, Shmishek and Rotter – direct; between the indexes of the palmar dermatoglyphics and the indicators of personality traits according to Spielberger and Luscher, most reliable relationships are inverse, and with the indicators according to Eysenck, Shmishek and Rotter - direct. The results of the correlation analysis allowed us to determine the most significant relationships between the indexes of the finger and palmar dermatoglyphics and the characteristics of the personality traits of practically healthy Ukrainian men.
