Beauty or Beast? Your First Finger Knows! — Dave’s Diary

It just never gets old! The crazy wacky stuff that surfaces on social media is amazing.  Try this one on for size—perfect size. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but–do you think doing a test with your index finger can determine if you’re beautiful or ugly?   Some people on social media, specifically people using Weibo, the Chinese version of Facebook, think so.

Here is how you do it.  Place your index finger against your chin and nose to see if it touches your lips. If the finger touches the lips then you can consider yourself to be “hot”. If the lips don’t touch, then hot you’re not.  Experts say the trend is loosely based on the 3.1 ratio theory, which plastic surgeons use to create the “perfect profile” and basically means the nose, lips and chin are all perfectly align.

Users in China, male and female, are actually posting selfies on Weibo doing the fingertap test to see if their index finger touches their lips when they place it on their nose like they’re asking someone to be quiet.  . The name of the test translates in English to ““Beauty and Ugliness Identification Method.”  Online, 200,000 people are discussing it but surgeon’s caution  that while it might be a fun test to do, it must be taken with a pinch of salt.
