View Full Version : 2d 4d ratio (fingers' length)

Anyone hear/read about this?

It's about the difference in length between your ring finger and index finger and they say it has to do with the amount of testosterone or estrogen you got while still in the whomb that dictates the ratio (first trimester).
Women usually are the same size, men usually the ring finger is slightly longer.

I thought it was interesting when I saw it mentioned in an article on t-nation. It was in the post called "ATOMIC DOG Top Ten Testosterone Facts by TC"

The first google search I did on it led me to this site:
human-nature com/nibbs/02/manning html (I took out the two "dots" and put spaces there)

I thought it seemed pretty interesting.

This was indeed found in a study. I note that I have a slightly longer 4th digit than 2nd digit. However, I don't know the utility of this observation. A more reliable way to determine if you are male is to check between legs: if there is a penis, chances are you are male.
