Our editor's hand - according to this study, he was probably pretty bad at maths!
May 30, 2007 Were you born to be better at math or literacy skills? Work out the ratio of your index finger length to your ring finger length to find out - a new study shows that boys with a higher ratio (ie. longer ring fingers) have a tendency to perform better at math, while girls with a lower ratio (or shorter ring fingers) tend to perform better in literacy tests. Take a look at our Editor's hand here; he's not too happy about these findings!
