Dave’s Diary: Ring Finger Predicts Women Winners in Business

Most women worry about the length of their ring fingers only in anticipation of the big fat diamond they hope to wear there someday but research from two Italian economists finds 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 male and female small business owners and photographed their hands halfway through the interview. Researchers found that longer ring fingers equated with skills like spatial ability, risk-taking assessment, assertiveness, and success in competitive sports.

They also found that the most successful entrepreneurs had ring fingers ten-to-20-percent longer than their index finger. (Daily Mail)
