Can you judge a man by his fingers?

Study finds link between relative lengths of index and ring fingers in men and behaviour towards women
Wed, 2015-02-18 09:28

Maybe you should take a good look at your partner’s fingers before putting a ring on one. Men with short index fingers and long ring fingers are on average nicer towards women, and this unexpected phenomenon stems from the hormones these men have been exposed to in their mother’s womb, according to a new study by researchers at McGill University. The findings might help explain why these men tend to have more children.
