It turns out, you may be able to tell a bit more about a man from his hands than you first thought. 

According to research published in the Asian Journal of Andrology, if a man’s ring finger is longer than his index finger he probably has a larger penis.

Now that you’ve all stopped checking your hands, the study was carried out on 144 men (aged 20 years and older) who underwent urological surgery at Gachon University Hospital in Incheon, South Korea, reports the International Business Times.

Previous studies have linked ring finger length to high levels of testosterone, sperm count, aggressive behaviour, sports prowess and a higher sex drive.

In another study recently published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences researchers studied digit length in mice – considered to have similar digit ratios as human males and females.

After exposing mouse embryos to more male hormones, the mouse had a significantly longer fourth digit.

Professor Martin Cohn and Dr. Zhengui Zheng, biologists at the University of Florida, say the fourth finger is packed with receptors for sex hormones:

Sex hormones affect finger length, and the ratio is fixed before the bone has even developed.

This happens during a narrow window of development, but it stays fixed throughout life.

So there you go, see if you can avoid the urge to check out guys hands for the next few days…
