  1. According to my English teacher (whom is one of the most credible people I've ever known) you are more masculine if your ring finger is taller than your index finger, and more feminine if vice-versa. My ring finger is taller. What about you?

    *note* - this goes for males and females

    I think I remember a BBC documentary about that. Apparently the testosterone level during pregnancy influences this and can determine the "masculinity" or "femininity". Women apparently mostly have a longer index, most males a longer ring finger.One part of the docu was a scientist who looked at the fingers of 5 or 6 male sprinters (athletes) and pretty accurately predicted the outcome of the race IIRC.

    My ring finger on my left [ fretting] hand
    is longer.

    On the right hand they are the same.

    Of course, the fact that I have used a
    pick for 38 years has no bearing on the
    issue.

    Hm. My index fingers are longer than my ring fingers on both hands.
     
  6. My middle finger is the longest...probably because it gets the most stretching :p But my ring finger is longer than my index finger
     
  7. My ring finger is a bit longer. The ring fingers also curve some so...

    My ring finger is longer than my index. My second toe is longer than my big toe. What does that mean?

    Probably means your hairy feet look ugly in sandals ?
     
  11. err, sorta off topic here:

    the length of the finger determines how fast the nail grows, therefore in males (usually) the middle fingernail grows fastest. :)

    Well, it all depends on how I look at them. If I put my hands palm down on my desk, my ring fingers are much longer than my index. But, if I hold my hands up in front of me with palms facing me, my index fingers are longer than my ring fingers.

    So, how do I choose? What is the real answer?
    I know that I'm masculine. But I do cry at weddings, and I cried after I was born, and I pee sitting down.(wifes rules);)

    I'm so confused!! :confused: :bawl:



    Is there a doctor in the house? :p

    Way TMI !!

    No, but I'll send you a can of Cool Whip.
    Applied in the proper fashion, the rule can be
    ignored thereafter. :p ;)

    My ring finger is longer by 6 or 7 mm. In just looking at my hands, I had thought they looked about the same, but I measured and it seems that I am still a man.

    I thought it was a different protruding body part that determined how masculine you are...

    You must have watched 200 Motels or Baby Snakes
    recently.

    I even leave the seat up and get away with it ... :D
     
  19. My ring finger on my fretting hand is longer than the ring finger on my left hand, but my right hand's ring finger is longer than my index.
