Men’s hands show if they will be polite and considerate to women or stubborn and rude
Men’s hands can tell behave with girls wife women
Scientists found that men who are polite and considerate to women tended to have ring fingers longer than their index fingers.
Those with fingers similar in length turned out to be more quarrelsome and rude.
Previous studies show that “digit ratio” is affected by exposure to male hormones, chiefly testosterone, in the womb.
The smaller the ratio – the greater the difference in length – the more an unborn baby has been exposed.
When with women, men with smaller ratios were more likely to listen attentively
This has an impact on the way adult men behave towards women, according to scientists at McGill University in Canada whose findings appear in the journal Personality And Individual Differences.
Lead researcher Professor Debbie Moskowitz said: “When with women, men with smaller ratios were more likely to listen attentively, smile and laugh, compromise or compliment the other person.”
They behaved that way both in sexual relationships and also with female friends or colleagues, she said.
The “nice guys” with smaller ratios were also less quarrelsome with women than they were with men.
Men with larger ratios – whose ring and index fingers were nearer the same length – were equally likely to pick an argument with both.
