    Default What’s your finger length ratio?

    23andme says my ring finger is longer. They’re correct. That means I had prenatal exposure to extra testosterone. This is some scientific proof I’m not all that girly.

    If you are so much into scientific determinism then why don't you like the "Just be yourself" maxim?

    My ring finger is longer, on both hands.

    Are your 2D:4D ratios for both the right and left hands the same, or are there differences?

    Some people actually have different ratio on the right hand and different on the left hand:

    https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics...ce/digit-ratio

    "Four studies found that left-handers and individuals with faster left-hand peg-moving performance tended to have larger 2D:4D ratios on the left hand relative to those found on the right hand."

    "Some studies measure finger lengths from either photocopies or X-rays of the hand. Researchers compute 2D:4D ratios for both the right and left hands and also look at the differences between the two ratios by subtracting the left hand ratio from that of the right hand or the reverse."

    My index finger on my left hand is a bit longer than my index finger on my right hand, in relation to it's size next to my middle finger. Also, my right thumb seems stubbier than my left one but generally, my fingers are not very stubby at all, quite long and slim. Both index fingers are longer than my ring finger.

    Can you prove it? Please post a photo of your hand.

    I want to order 23andMe but only if they are accurate.
