Physical and Behavioral Traits Linked With the Length of Your Finger

You can learn a lot about yourself just by looking at your hands. Scientists have noticed an extraordinary link between the length of your ring and index fingers and a various physical as well as behavioral traits. It has been suggested by some scientists that the ratio of length of the 2nd (index finger) and 4th (ring finger) can indicate many different traits, risks, advantages and deficiencies.

Some scientists believe that the ratio between index and ring finger indicates how much testosterone we were exposed to in our mother’s womb. The higher the testosterone, the greater the length of the ring finger and the more “masculine” the resulting child – whether male or female. On average, men tend to have longer ring fingers and women longer index fingers.

One of the recent studies published in Discovery Magazine found out that, if a man’s ring finger is longer than his index finger, he is more likely to be attractive for women.

80 female university students between 18 and 34 participated in the study. The aim of the study was to find out what makes a man attractive. They were given images of 49 men and were asked to evaluate attractiveness. The visual tests showed that the longer the ring finger compared to the index finger a man had, the more attractive his face was rated.
