What The Pattern On Your Fingerprints Says About You

Science | By Cole Damon | February 15, 2018

Although mankind didn't know a lot about finding personality types from fingerprints back in the day, we have now progressed a lot and can easily tell the kind of personality someone has, based on the patterns on their fingerprints. Here we take a look at some of the most common fingerprint types and the personality each type is supposed to have.


Loopy fingerprints are common for people living in the continent of Europe. These fingerprints usually correspond to a personality that is balanced and calm and does not panic really easily. People with such fingerprints tend to be compassionate.

Ulnar Loops

Ulnar loops are basically shaped like a decent waterfall flowing towards your little finger with triangular points. People that have such patterns are observant, gentle and like going with the flow rather than sticking to a specific schedule.

Radial Loop

Radial loops are basically the opposite to the concept of ulnar loops. These loops flow towards the thumb rather than going towards your little finger. People with such loops are independent, clever and fond of criticizing and questioning people.


People with curved or swiveled fingerprints are notable for their confidence and energy. Their confidence is visible in whatever they do and everything from their posture to their manners is a testimony of their confident nature and demeanor.

Simple Arch

Simple arch patterns are basically shaped like a hill and have a curved top to them without any visible triangulation. People with such arches are hard working, cautious and introverted. They follow correct procedures and steps in their life.

Tented Arch

Tented arch patterns are shaped like the top of a tent, as suggested by the name of the fingerprint pattern. People who come from this fingerprint style tend to have extreme personality types and are very welcoming and outgoing.


Swirled fingerprint patterns belong to people who don't have a lot of control over their temper. Such people have a short fuse and don't have much control over their temper. They fly off the handle from time to time due to their short temper.

Concentric Swirl

Concentric swirls consist of a series of inverted lines starting from the center of any small circle that is then expanded outwards. These lines form a complete circle. People who have such fingertips tend to be really self-centered and live in their bubble.

Spiral Swirl

A spial swirl is very much like a concentrated swirl, only that the pattern starts from the center and widens outwards. These patterns feature two triangular parts. People who have such fingerprints are self-motivated and are encouraged by small things.

Press Swirl

A press swirl is extremely similar to the two we mentioned above, only that the circular shape is shaped into an oval. Individuals with such a fingerprint are considered to be competitive, highly attentive, ambitious and true to their word.

Imploding Swirl

An imploding swirl starts from the middle of the finger and is surrounded by patterns in the middle of the fingers. Men and women that boast of imploding swirls are good at multi-tasking and are also believed to be self-conscious.

Composite Swirl

A composite swirl is very much similar to the one we mentioned above, only difference lies in the shape of the outlying circles around it. People that boast of composite swirls are really adaptable and can think outside the box.

Peacock's Eye

This pattern is named the peacock's eye because of its resemblance to a peacock's eye. The center lies at the spiral and the ends are connected through a straight line. People with peacock eye patterns are highly expressive and form perceptions easily.

Variant Patterns

These rare types of patterns do not conform to any of the ones that we mentioned above. This patter is a mixture of loops, swirls and arches. People with such patterns are unique and are able to express themselves in a really unique way.
