    Can’t tell for sure, but from the photo it looks like ring finger is longer than her index finger, just like mine are.

    How could that be I wonder?

      It is caused by Global Warming!
      Either that or you are from another Galaxy! πŸ˜‰

      It’s one of those great true urban legend bar bets. Men usually have longer ring fingers than their index fingers, women have longer index fingers than ring fingers or they are the same.


      “Take a look at your right-hand. Which of your fingers is longer: your ring finger, or your index finger? Surprisingly, a passing stranger who noticed a difference in length between these two fingers (and who had handy a copy of John Manning’s book Digit Ratio: A Pointer to Fertility, Behavior and Health) might infer some very personal characteristics about you. With no more data than that gleaned from a passing glance at your hands, a stranger might infer whether you are likely to have homosexual inclinations, are highly fertile, may eventually suffer from a heart attack or breast cancer, have musical aptitude or sporting prowess, and a surprisingly long list of other characteristics.

      Why do the fingers reveal such a wide spectrum of information (albeit very probabilistic)? Manning reviews evidence to suggest that the ratio of the length between the ring and index finger is somewhat sexually dimorphic, that this ratio is determined during early fetal development, and that it is influenced by sex hormones, particularly testosterone. If this is true, the fingers may provide a permanent, and easily visible, historic marker of important hormonal events that occurred during a critical time of fetal development, the latter part of the first trimester. This is a critical time of sexual differentiation of both the brain and body.

      Specifically, it is the ratio of the length of the index finger (digit 2, or “2D”) and the ring finger (digit 4, or “4D”) that is sexually dimorphic. Generally, males have a ring finger that is longer than their index finger. Females typically have index and ring fingers of about the same length. The ratio of index finger length to ring finger length is called the β€œ2D:4D digit ratio,” or more simply, the β€œdigit ratio.” Manning reports that, for males, the index finger is generally about 96 percent of the length of the ring finger, which gives an average digit ratio for males of .96. The digit ratio would be 1.00 if the ring and index fingers were the same length, and greater than 1.00 if the index finger was longer than the ring finger. Males generally have a digit ratio below 1.00 — they have what is termed a “low digit ratio.” Women generally have a digit ratio of about 1.00 (the index and ring fingers are of about equal length), or a “high digit ratio.”

      Lots more info out there. But keep it a secret so you can win some bar bets.

      Before I posted this I should have asked R.Gates and Brian to tell us the lengths of their ring and index fingers.

      Oh well, maybe they won’t see this thread.
