Inborn Talent Gene Test
46 Talents & Traits
Maximise Your Child’s Fullest Potential
The objective of the Inborn Talent Gene Test (ITGT) is to help parents identify their child’s natural talents and aptitudes that may not be obvious at a young age. Giving your child a head start in proper nurture can maximize those aptitudes to the fullest potential.
The ITGT covers 46 talents and traits. The test reports come with a Career Profiling assessed by our team of psychologists based on one’s unique abilities detected from his/her genetic makeup. This profile can provide an individual with good educational and career guidance. Expert Suggestions giving insightful details to help parents effectively nurture and develop their child’s character and talents are also included in the report.

“Our children’s ability to learn are all different. What makes them different? How can we maximize their development?”
Nature Vs. Nurture
Which Is More Important?
I’m not sure what my child’s talents are, but I will just use a series of trials and errors and see how it goes.
If nature never meets the right nurture, the genes won’t be switched on, and there will be no development. The gift will be repressed and become a hidden talent.
I understand that my child is not good in piano as compared to his peers, but I will give him the best school and the best teacher.
Partial – Outstanding
If we push our children to do things they are not endowed with, the effort has to be doubled, and there will only be partial development as there is no gene to switch on despite much hard work. Your child will only stay at an ordinary level and that will affect his self-confidence. We want our children to rise above mediocrity.
Knowledge is power. Now that I understand what my child’s innate talents are through the ITGT, I will guide him accordingly..
If you have the nature and given the right nurture, you can become a genius! It is no longer a question of Nature or Nurture, we should ask a more sophisticated question of whether we have a perfect match of nature AND nurture interaction in our child’s development.

What does your DNA tell about you?
Your DNA is the blueprint of life. It determines everything from how you look to how you behave. Understanding your genes gives you the ability to make better decisions in life by focusing on specific skill sets developed from your natural talents rather than taking on the ‘one-sized fits all’ approach to personal and childhood developments.
What is the Inborn Talent Genetic Test?
The Inborn Talent Genetic Test (ITGT) is a scientific DNA test to reveal inherited and inborn talents of a child through the genetic makeup of his or her DNA that your child is born with. The test results help parents identify their children talents that may not be obvious at a young age but can be picked up from their genetic make-up.
How is the Inborn Talent Genetic Test performed?
We employ a painless and non-invasive procedure which does not involve blood when collecting DNA samples from our clients. This simple procedure which takes only a couple of minutes is performed as follows:
Step 1: Order Online
Choose from our Inborn Talent or Disease Susceptibility DNA test. Your sample swab home kit will typically arrive within 5-7 days.
Step 2: Swab Sampling
Follow kit instructions to collect sample — all from home. Place the tube and consent form into the pre-paid envelope provided and mail it back to our sample collection point.
Step 3: Profiling Report
The samples will be tested in our lab and within a month, we will provide you with the conclusive DNA test report.
How is the Inborn Talent Genetic Test useful to me?
Knowing your child inborn talents allows you to effectively groom your child according to his/her natural inclinations. You can channel efforts and resources towards developing your child’s potential with more confidence. You no longer have to rely on guesswork, trial-and-error or fortune-telling. At the same time, you will also know what areas your child is not likely to excel in as your child is not naturally-inclined toward those areas.
How Accurate is Map My Gene?
The results of the tests offered by Map My Gene are known to be scientifically-proven to assert up to 99% accuracy. Clients can be rest assured that Map My Gene will only offer tests that have met stringent standards of validity, consistency and accuracy.
Who should do this test?
Anyone! A DNA test can be performed at any age.
The ITGT provides valuable insights for individuals at any stage of career, emotional or personality growth. We recommend taking the ITGT as early in life as possible. Parents can give their children a head start in life when they can set a foundation to develop their children’s natural dispositions early.
Adults who find themselves at a career crossroad find it particularly useful to have an ITGT test done, as the career profiling aspect of the ITGT can help guide individuals towards careers they are most suited for according to their innate ability that they might not even be aware of.
Do I need to take the test again after some time?
Not likely. Genetic conditions are known to be very stable. Your DNA is unlikely to change over his or her lifetime. There is no need to test again for the same attributes.
Will my results from Map My Gene genetic tests be kept confidential?
Your test results will be kept very strictly confidential. In fact, your sample will only be identified by a sample serial number throughout most of the testing process to ensure the confidentiality of your identity.
Your test results will not be willfully shared with any third party outside of Map My Gene. Even within Map My Gene, client details will only be revealed on a need-to-know basis and access to client details will be limited to only a select few employees who absolutely require the information to perform their work.
