PKTT Self-Testing Steps

1. The Circuit Fingers. If you are right-handed: Place your left hand palm up. Connect the tip of your left thumb with the tip of the left little finger (finger #4). Not your index finger.I’m talking about your thumb and little finger.

Circuit Fingers If you are left-handed: Place your right hand palm up. Connect the tip of your right thumb with the tip of your right little finger. By connecting your thumb and little finger, you have just temporarily created and closed a new electric circuit in your hand that is external and easily accessible for testing.

Before going on, look at the position you have just formed with your hand. If your thumb is touching the tip of your index or finger #1, laugh at yourself for not being able to follow directions, and change the position so you touch the tip of the thumb with the tip of the little finger (finger #4). Most likely this will not feel comfortable to you. That is because you normally don’t put your fingers in this position and they might feel a little stiff. If this feels awkward, you’ve got the first step of the test position! In time, the hand and circuit fingers will adjust to being put in this position and they will feel more comfortable.

Circuit fingers can touch tip to tip (Fig. A), finger pad to finger pad (Fig. B), or thumb resting on top of the little finger's nail (Fig. C). I rest my thumb on top of my little finger. And I suggest this position for anyone with long nails. You're not required to impale yourselves for this.

When you have the circuit fingers in position, they form a circle. If you straighten fingers 1, 2 and 3 a bit, you'll get them out of the way and you'll see the circle.

2. The Test Fingers and Testing Position.

Circuit Fingers To test the new circuit (the means by which you will apply pressure), place the test fingers, thumb and index finger (finger #1) of your other hand (Fig. D), inside the circle you have created by connecting your circuit thumb and little finger. The test fingers (thumb/index finger) should be right under the circuit fingers (thumb/little finger), touching them, with your test thumb resting against the underside of your circuit thumb and your test index finger resting against the underside of your circuit little finger (Fig. E). Don’t try to make a circle with your test fingers. They are just placed inside the circuit fingers that do form a circle. It will look like you have two “sticks” inserted inside a circle.

3. Positive Response. Keeping this position, ask yourself a simple question in which you already know the answer to be “yes.” (Ex: “Is my name _____? ” Insert your real name.) Once you’ve asked the question, press your circuit fingers together, keeping them in the circular position. Using the same amount of pressure, try to press apart or separate the circuit fingers with your test fingers. Press the lower thumb against the upper thumb, and the lower index finger against the upper little finger.

The action of your test fingers will look like scissors separating as you apply pressure to your circuit fingers. Your testing fingers, the fingers inserted in the circuit circle, will remain in position within the circle. (Figs. F and G) All you are doing is using these two testing fingers to apply pressure to the outer two circuit fingers. Don't try to pull your test fingers vertically up through your circuit fingers.

If you have ever been kinesiology tested by a physician using the conventional steps, the PKTT circuit position in step 1 corresponds to the position you take when you stick your arm out for the physician. The testing position in step 2 is in place of the physician. After you ask the yes/no question and you press your circuit fingers tip-to-tip, that is equal to the physician saying, “Resist my pressure.” Your circuit fingers now correspond to your outstretched, stiffened arm. Trying to push apart those fingers with your testing fingers is equal to the physician pressing down on your arm.

If the answer to the question is positive (if your name is what you think it is!), you will not be able to easily push apart the circuit fingers. The electrical circuit will hold, your muscles will maintain their strength, and your circuit fingers will not separate. You will feel the strength in that circuit.

Calibrating the finger pressure: Be sure the amount of pressure holding the circuit fingers together is equal to the amount of your testing fingers pressing against them. Also, do not use a pumping action (pressing against your circuit fingers several times in rapid succession) when applying pressure to your circuit fingers. Use an equal and continuous pressure. Play with this a bit. Ask a few more yes/no questions that have positive answers.

Now, I know it is going to seem that if you already know the answer to be “yes,” you are probably “throwing” the test. Well, you are. What can be a little tricky with PKTT is learning to equalize the pressure between all four fingers and these questions are your tool for calibrating that pressure for feeling the strong positive. You are asking yourself a question that has a positive answer. (Ex: “Is my name _____?” Insert your real name.) The obvious answer to this question is yes. A positive, even in the form of a correct answer to a question, will not have an adverse or weakening impact on electric circuits, and the related muscles to those circuits will remain strong. If your circuit fingers are separating when you know you should be getting a positive response, you are applying too much pressure with your test fingers. Or you are not putting enough pressure into holding your circuit fingers together. You need to keep asking the question and playing with the testing until you feel pressure in all four fingers and the pressure in your test fingers is not separating your circuit fingers. You don’t have to break or strain your fingers for this; just use enough pressure to make them feel alive and connected. When this happens, you now have a clear positive PKTT response.

4. Negative Response.

Circuit Fingers Once you have a good sense of the positive response, ask yourself a question that has a negative answer. (Ex: “Is my name _____?” Insert a completely bogus name and not a nickname or a name you wish you had.) Again press your circuit fingers together and, using equal pressure, press against the circuit fingers with the test fingers. This time, if the test- fingers’ pressure is equal to the circuit-fingers’ pressure, the electric circuit will break, and the circuit fingers will weaken and separate. Because the electric circuit is broken, the muscles in the circuit fingers do not have the strength to hold the fingers together. In a positive state the electric circuit holds, and the muscles have the strength to keep the two fingers together.

Different styles in how the fingers separate: How much your circuit fingers separate depends on your personal style. Some people's fingers separate a lot. (Fig. H) Other's barely separate at all. (Fig. I) Mine separate about a quarter of an inch. (Fig. J) Some people's fingers won't separate at all, but they'll definitely feel the fingers weaken when pressure is applied during a "no" answer. Let your personal style develop naturally.

Resting your forearms: If you are having a little trouble feeling anything, do your testing with your forearms resting in your lap. (Fig. K) This way you won't be using your muscles to hold your arms up while you are trying to test.

To calibrate and equalize the pressure used by the circuit fingers and the testing fingers for negative responses, play with questions that have obvious negative answers. Continue adjusting the pressure between your circuit and test fingers until you get a clear negative response.

When you’re feeling a solid separation, return to positive questions. Once again, get a good feeling for the strength between your circuit fingers when the electric circuit is in a positive state. Then ask a negative question and feel the weakness when the circuit breaks and is in a negative state. Practice your testing by alternating the questions. It’s perfectly fine to keep asking the same question with the known negative answer over and over. You don’t have to give yourself a headache trying to come up with different questions. Your electric system isn’t grading you on creativity. The same is true when testing the positive response. Just use the same question with the known positive answer.

In the beginning, you may feel only a slight difference between the two. With practice, that difference will become more pronounced. For now, it is just a matter of trusting what you have learned and what you feel — and practicing.

The PKTT Calibration

Especially in the beginning, and even sometimes after you have been doing PKTT successfully for awhile, you may lose the strong feeling of the positive response and the weakness of the negative. In short, you’ve lost the equal pressure between your circuit and test fingers and one set is overpowering the other. As soon as your testing feels a little off or funny to you, do a PKTT Calibration so that you won’t waste time doing a bunch of testing and not being sure of the accuracy of those answers.
If you want accurate results, you will have to retest those steps where you felt your testing to be suspect. So do a PKTT Calibration sooner rather than later. It’ll save time in the long run. Here are the steps:

1. Ask yourself a question that you know has a positive or true answer and test for the response. Adjust the pressure between your testing and circuit fingers until the pressure is equalized and you feel a strong, positive response. Play with this a bit and get a good feel for the strength of the positive response.

2. Then switch to a question that has a negative or false answer and equalize the pressure until you clearly feel the circuit break and/or see the fingers separate.

3. Alternate your questions between positive and negative a few times to get the feel of holding the equalized pressure no matter what the question. In no time, you will have the “PKTT feel” back and you can resume testing where you left off.

Don't forget the overall concept behind kinesiology. What enhances our body, mind and soul makes us strong. Together, our body, mind and soul create a holistic environment that, when balanced, is strong and solid. If something enters that environment and negates or challenges the balance, the environment is weakened. That strength or weakness registers in the electrical system, and it can be discerned through a muscle-testing technique — kinesiology.


Do a testing calibration as soon as your testing feels a little off or funny to you so that you won't waste time doing a bunch of testing and not being sure of the accuracy of those answers. If you want accurate results in anything you are testing, you will have to retest those parts where you felt your testing to be suspect. So do a testing calibration sooner rather than later. It'll save time.
