Next time you feel like showing your middle finger, show your ring finger instead, that is, if you have a long one.
Researchers have found out that people with a long ring finger compared to their index finger are more promiscuous and have more sex partner; the type who would most likely to signal `F*** you’ to a 73 yr old taxi driver.
Researchers analysed the photocopies of the right hand from 1,314 British men and women and measured the length of the index finger and the ring finger.
They found that the shorter the index finger in relation to the ring finger, the higher the levels of testosterone that person is likely to have been exposed to in the womb – making them more promiscuous.
One group had a ring finger which was much longer than the index finger, suggesting that they may be more promiscuous, while the other group had fingers which similar in length – meaning they were likely to favour long-term relationships. This pattern of promiscuity was found in both men and women.
Professor Robin Dunbar of Oxford University said that the differences are “subtle” and “only visible when we look at large groups of people”.
