A STUDY has found that men whose ring fingers are longer than their index fingers are seen as better bets by women. The study is the latest in a long line to link the shape of man's hands with his path in life, reports the Daily Mail. British, French and Swiss researchers photographed 49 young men and measured the length of their ring and index fingers. They also recorded their voices and took swabs to capture general odour. They then showed a group of women the photos and asked them to rate the men's looks. Those whose ring fingers were longer than their index fingers were more likely to win the women's approval. They were seen as good prospects for both a fling and a long-term relationship. Stirling University researcher Craig Roberts said, "Exposure to testosterone in the womb likely affects facial structure as well as finger length. Having a long ring finger confers a host of other benefits." TOI
