Tented Arch Fingerprint
The loop, whorl and arch account for around 80 per cent of all prints. A tented arch fingerprint is much rarer. You will recognise it by a single triradius in the centre which forms a little triangle and rises vertically to appear like a tent or tent pole.
For over five centuries of observation and study of genetic medicine, psychology and brain science, scientists have proof that examination of the character from the fingerprints is possible. I believe that understanding your nature is the ultimate way to enrich your life and the prints are, without a doubt, a great place to begin.
The tented arch fingerprint is usually only found on the index finger. It belongs to people who are passionate about their endeavours. They get deeply involved in whatever interests them. Some seem to be ‘highly strung.’ They can get so enthusiastic about their hobby or work that they go to extremes.
They can be sensitive to change, and don’t like change or criticism. The people with a tented arch fingerprint have a high chance of success due to the level of energy and devotion. It is not easy for them to relax as they do not do things by halves.
The tented arch character:
Idealistic, creative, sporty, energetic. These people can easily motivate others with their eagerness.
A subject with a few of these is straightforward and straight-faced. Although, unexpected events can cause them to become temporarily unbalanced or unable to cope.
The tented arch overall shows an average level of growth in the area it appears. On the index finger, it refers to ambitions, also of the self-image and ego (Jupiterian qualities).
A woman I know with two tented arch prints (one on each index finger) was an avid fish keeper. She started with just one fish tank with a few angelfish. Eventually, she ended up becoming so obsessed about her aquariums that she began to breed her fish. The juvenile angelfish required special food, and she set about breeding brine shrimp and micro worms as well. Her house was not big enough to cater to her hobby, so she built an extra room to house her twenty-plus fish tanks.
Another example is from a young man who loves the game Pokemon Go. There’s not an hour goes by that he is not checking his phone to see which new Pokemon might appear. If there’s anything to know about the game and its characters, he knows it all. He even joined a group of people who have the same interest, and they spend many nights raiding gyms until the early hours of the morning.
The difference between the tented arch and the plain arch.
The arch print does not have a triradii, and the ridges form the shape of a mountain or hill but not as sharp as the tented arch (no tentpole appearance). It is a simple pattern which reflects the humble, grounded and unassuming.
If the prints are predominantly arches, it depicts a practical nature, but with a cautious and pessimistic view of life. They may not be very trusting of others, but they can be reliable and trustworthy themselves. These old-fashioned individuals have a need for security and peace in their life. If a person with many arches happens to be materialistic, they will find themselves having to work hard for everything they need and want. Rarely the intellectual type, their skills will be physical ones involving the use of the hands.
