    I'm an ESTP and my index finger and ring finger is about the same length.

    Why would you be insulted? I'm not making a value judgement, you are. I don't think it's necessarily better to have more testosterone. I would prefer to be balanced actually, and not have too high or too low of a level, but that's just me.

    You don't think testosterone level could affect personality? If testosterone is linked to aggression, risk taking, violence and criminal activity etc. You don't you think there could be a correlation between type and testosterone? I'm not even saying I KNOW there is a correlation (though I suspect there is). I just wanted to collect the data available to me, using a polls, on a few forums. No one else is out there measuring testosterone to mbti type. But I would bet my life, certain mbti groups have higher levels on AVERAGE.

    Correlation does not mean INFPs can't have high levels of testosterone. Correlation is higher likelihood, that two variables are related or connected. Causality has nothing to do with correlation.

    Ring longer on both hands. Left hand ring finger longer than right hand ring finger. I don't believe that this information has any relevance, however.

    Interestingly, the results are pretty surprising with at the INTJs
    23 men had longer ring finger and 0 with longer index (included 3 people I measure offline and 3 from intpcentral
    7 women with longer ring finger with 1 longer index

    INTPs
    55 with longer ring fingers and 13 with longer index (forgot to add gender at intpcentral)

    I think the initital loose results have compelled me to actually start measuring ratios offline and do a more proper study.

    On both hands, my ring fingers are longer than my index fingers by 1/8th of an inch. (Index = 3 and 1/8. Ring = 3 and 1/4)

    I'm an INTP and my fingers think your theory is stupid.

    The relative length of the index (second) and ring (fourth) fingers is set before birth and remains the same throughout life. The length of fingers is genetically linked to the sex hormones, and a person with an index finger shorter than the ring finger will have had more testosterone while in the womb, and a person with an index finger longer than the ring finger will have had more estrogen.

    ---

    I am male and type as INFP. My index and ring fingers are the same length.

    My partner (tovlo) is female and she types as INFJ. Her index and ring fingers are the same length.

    Neither of us voted in the poll as there was no selection that represented the lack of difference in the length of our digits.


    cheers,
    Ian

    So you don't think it's possible testosterone and type might have correlation? or do you think the way of measuring testosterone is stupid, or both?

    I don't like it. I don't like it one bit, sir. I don't think testosterone can be linked with type; I'm skeptical about your finger-length quiz; I have reservations about people typing themselves; and, I think the theory tries to create dichotomies where they don't really exist - T/F, I/E.
