    Why are their not options for many types up there?

    There is a limit on poll size and I didn't realize how many ENTJs there were on this site (I also did INTJs and INTPs on their own forum). I would thank any ENTJs who post their results or PM me.

    I'm somewhat skeptical of my quiz as well. But if I captured ratios I would be less so. I also have reservations about people typing themselves, but I would venture to guess that at least 80% of the people that type themselves on these forums are accurate.

    I think I'm probably wrong with my initial hunch that INTPs as a group have that much of a correlation to testosterone levels, but have even more faith that INTJs do, from my limited results. I think the I/E dichotomy and testosterone is probably wrong. I still think the T/F dichotomy and testosterone is probably right.

    I still think testosterone is probably linked to type (or at least some of them).

    I'm an INTJ and I have the lowest 2D:4D digit ratio (the difference in length between index and ring finger) of anyone I know. It's difficult to measure, but, on my right hand, where the differences are more pronounced, my index finger has about 84% the length my ring finger.

    I'd at least like to think your theory is correct

    Interesting thread. There have been studies on this. Here's one article on it, for example: Finger Length Predicts Speed, Aggression, Smarts and Motivation | LiveScience

    Basically, they say that the longer your ring finger is in relation to your index finger, the higher your prenatal testosterone and the more aggressive you are. However, since I heard about this theory, I noticed that some people I know with high ring to index finger ratios were not aggressive at all, and some without them were.

    I've never been able to figure out which finger is longer. Depending on how I hold my hands or even simply which side I'm looking at them from (how on earth does that work?), it's one or the other.

    Measure them in your inner palm from the point where they connect to the palm all the way to the tip of the finger.

    It's rather annoying.


    And your theory is wrong.
    Not all of us belong to more than one forum, so is it really something worth getting annoyed with? Why even waste your time with that post..it's pointless, man.


    As for the poll, I'm a male ENFP whose ring finger is longer.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    The skin is lower on one side of my ring finger. Do I measure from the lower side or the side where the finger first connects?

    EDIT: Also, which side am I supposed to do the measuring from?

    Female INTP (I have no idea if I voted in your original poll on INTPc, mlc), ring fingers on both hands about 1mm longer than index finges.

    I think it's easier if you do it on the palm side. I measured from the crease (doesn't matter which part of the crease as long as you're consistent) to the top of my fingers.
