Longer ring finger – More Money

Filed under: Stocks — Tags: , , , — admin @ 7:11 pm

A new research shows that stockbrokers with longer ring fingers make six times as much money as their rivals. According to this research, people with longer ring finger have been associated with higher exposure to testosterone in the womb, which has been linked to confidence, risk-taking ability, extra vigilance and quick reactions.

The research led by Dr John Coates, included 44 men in the study. Dr John Coates compared the profits of the traders over a period of 20 months with their finger-length.

Results showed that traders with long ring fingers made up to 11 times the earnings (averaging 6 times) of their counterparts.

“We were surprised to find that exposure to hormones in the womb had such a strong influence on future trading performance. But we should not conclude from this that only people with long ring fingers should be employed in the stock market,” said Dr John Coates.
