Canadian researchers say they've found a way to help 'finger' men with physically aggressive personalities.
A University of Alberta study finds that measuring a man's index finger length relative to his ring finger length predicts his predisposition to being physically aggressive.
The shorter the index finger relative to the ring finger, the higher the amount of prenatal testosterone and the more likely the man will be physically aggressive, they researchers say.
According to the researchers, experts have known for a hundred years that the index-to-ring finger length ratio of men differs considerably from that seen in women. And more recently, research has suggested that the length of men's fingers changes depending on their exposure to testosterone in the womb.
In another study, to be published later this year, Hurd found that men with more "feminine" finger ratios tended to be more prone to depression.

Where in the world to they come up with these studies?
I'm not trying to discount this one, but who decided to do research based on finger lengths and relate it to aggressive behavior?
Whatever happened to behavioral tendencies being linked to......oh, I dont know....how you were brought up?
I know you're all looking forward to the study on "feminine fingers".

I think the discussion on longer feminine fingers is best left alone.....my dirty mind already has some brilliant comments for it already!
