its supposed to be when is erect.

For your last statement, well, it has to be a strict "L" in shape, starting from the lowest point. well, maybe it doesn`t work for everyone.

Thank you much for the visual... now if you`ll please place your manhood on the scanner... hehe... Seriously thou, is that supposed to be flacid or hard length? And what if it`s cold out? I know everyone`s different, but, the example I have in my life has a significantly longer ring finger, yet he`s not agressive... and the thumb to pointer length is longer than flacid and shorter than hard.... so I have no idea what that means.

I`ve seen a science show that said the same thing, but with athletic prowess instead of aggression, all due to prenatal testosterone levels. It seems that the length of your ring finger is proportionate to the amount of testosterone you were subjected to in your mother`s womb, and testosterone builds muscle and tempers. ;-)
It`s new research, but I believe there`s a connection.

I read once that the ring finger becomes longer due to high testosterone levels, possibly resulting in more aggressive behaviors.

To kathaclysm: Well, to explain my point. Sorry nickbrick but since you displayed that pic, i shall use it as my example.

Actually you are supposed to do the Fleming Left hand rule for the most accurate result. But roughly thats the length of the penis. Of course you have to multiply it by the magnification of the image.

then again, my index finger is about a half a centimeter LONGER than my ring finger, and i consider myself more passive than aggresive....

i`m not sure if i buy this. it sounds rather pseudoscientific (as does the penis length thing).

My ring finger is noticably longer than my index finger, and I`m not aggressive. And if you say otherwise, I`ll come bash your head in with a baseball bat!!!! ;)

Wait... I`ve heard that the difference in length between ring and pointer finger has something to do with penis size... but what`s this with the base of the thumb? And I don`t think well hung men are the most agressive guys... but that`s not something I`ve really taken a survey on.

Hmm... Apparently all the other factors were strongly leaning towards not violent, because my ring finger is definitely longer than my index finger and I`m perhaps the most passive person I know...

well for the penis size thingy, it also depends on the base of your thumb as well.

Well, yet another reason to check out a guys finger length. And I thought it was just the penis size thing. How very odd.
