Your hands could tell a lot more about you than you think.
Researchers have recently begun studying the lengths of index and ring fingers to see if they could offer hints about a person’s musical or athletic ability and perhaps their risk of osteoarthritis. They think that the difference between the two fingers’ lengths signifies the level of testosterone exposure in the womb and that the longer the ring finger is compared to the index finger, the higher the exposure.
At least one country is willing to pay big bucks for this research. Qatar’s Aspire Sports Academy is hoping the finger ratio thing will help them discover the best young sporting talent and transform them into world-renowned champions.
