In the case of the sample surveyed, was observed that these children and adolescents have a low percentage of arch type designs and high levels of deltas and lines in the ten fingers of the hands, characteristic similar to those found in high-performance athletes. Moreover, they presented a mirror relation between the hands, is a similarity in digital designs and the relationship of the number of lines between the fingers almost perfect matching, as found in high-performance athletes. Therefore, the dermatoglyphics may be more useful evaluative tool in the identification of talented individuals.
