Your Little Finger Length Determines Your Health Risks and PERSONALITY
Take a Look at Your Little Finger!

Eyes may be the windows to the soul, but hands can tell a lot about a person. For example, they are smooth or soft cotton. Fingers in particular will give you additional insights. A joint study by researchers from Oxford and Northumbria, UK, found that differences in the length of certain fingers could indicate a person’s propensity to be promiscuous or monogamous. The secret lies in the ring finger compared to the index.

After studying 585 men and women in North America and Britain, they found that people with rings longer than their fingers were more likely to commit adultery in both sexes. But those with index fingers longer than their ring fingers tended to be monogamous. It is important to note that research suggests, but does not prove, a biological basis for the selection of communication styles.

A longer ring finger was associated with testosterone, the hormone responsible for libido in the womb. Men and women have different levels of each sex hormone. The levels differ significantly between the two sexes. For example, some men have high levels of testosterone, some women have low testosterone, and so on.

In one study, a longer ring finger was associated with a tendency to engage in more promiscuous relationships.

A McGill University study of 155 men found that men with shorter index fingers compared to ring fingers were more polite and kind to women than women with longer index and ring fingers. The first case is called a small-digit ratio.

This indulgence was not reserved for women with whom they were romantically involved, but also for female family members, colleagues, and friends. According to researchers, these men are more willing to compromise, which is a necessary trait for a healthy relationship. The lead author of this study was Debbie Moskowitz. According to a university psychology professor, men with bigger ring fingers have stronger relationships and are more likely to have children because of their submissive nature.

Men with rings longer than their index fingers are more likely to have children.

In this latest study, neuroscientists from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) found that by looking at the ratio of the index and ring fingers, they can predict whether a person is a good athlete or a more anxious person. Both men and women with longer ring fingers are better at spatial tasks, the researchers found. Therefore, they are better at physical work and athletics.

But people with long ring fingers have a disadvantage. For example, they have a higher risk of ADHD, Tourette syndrome, and autism. These disorders are more common in men. People with long index fingers also have an advantage. Low levels of testosterone in utero can improve verbal memory. This was associated with a higher risk of anxiety and depression, which were more common in women.

NTNU PhD student Karl Pinzka completed this cutting-edge research for his dissertation. He wanted to link the effects of testosterone in utero to a higher ability to perform physical tasks. He first recruited 42 female participants and measured the length of their index and ring fingers. Half of that group was then given drugs to lower testosterone levels. The other half received a placebo. Then he gave them various exercises.

The women in this study were asked to maneuver around a virtual maze to see if it boosted their testosterone levels.

By lowering testosterone levels, Pinzka could assess whether the hormone affected women’s spatial abilities. Volunteers had to create a virtual maze that involved mentally rotating an array of 3D objects. “Women with the best scores on the mental rotation task had higher testosterone levels prenatally and in adulthood, while women with the worst scores had lower levels in both,” Pinzka said.

More research is needed to learn more about this phenomenon and how it may affect human health. One thing’s for sure: how much testosterone we’re exposed to in the womb and later in life has a big impact on who we are. Pinzka believes that more extensive research will lead to a deeper understanding and a stronger connection to the surface. Until then, when you hold the hand of your loved one, look at the ratio of the ring finger to the index finger. This will help you understand who they are.
