Length of a Ring Finger Can Predict a Person’s Success
Hmmm. Maybe my high school injury has nothing to do with why I’m not a big sports person anymore. Maybe my ring finger is the real reason.
Research from two Italian economists say that the length of a woman’s ring finger can predict how successful she will be in her career, or even sports.
For their research, economists Aldo Rustichini and Luigi Guiso interviewed over two-thousand female small business owners and photographed their hands. Researchers found that longer ring fingers equated with skills like spatial ability, risk-taking assessment, assertiveness, and success in competitive sports.
The researchers also found that the most successful entrepreneurs had ring fingers ten-to-20-percent longer than their index finger.
