    Default Digit ratios and T vs F?

    I'm sure lots of you are familiar with the digit finger ratio (index finger length / ring finger length). Whichever finger is longer and depending on by how much is indicative of how much of each prenatal hormone a person recieved during the 1st trimester. On males the ratio is typically lower and on females typically higher.

    I was wondering if there may be any correlation between the digit ratios and an inclination toward T or F, or any other function for that matter.

    My right hand ratio is .95

    My left hand ratio is .94

    I'm ENTp

    To measure digit ratio take a ruler and in mm (more exact) measure the length from the bottom crease of each finger to the top of the finger, and divide the index finger length by the ring finger length for each hand.

    What are everyone's digit ratios and type?

    I never realized that my left index finger is quite a bit longer than my right one.

    I feel stupid, I didn't read this through very well.
    At any rate my new correct answer is

    Right: 1.07
    Left: 1.09

    I think this experiement is worthy of experiemntation, but might prove futile ... the amount of signifigant hormones a person produces or received before birth has to do with a person's intended gender, not personality type. Thinking or Feeling preferences may not always coincide with gender, meaning you'll probably have same male Fs with low ratios and female Ts with high ratios, and that is assuming everyone is typed right. Good luck though.
