    My ring finger is nearly a centimeter longer than my index finger. Is that normal...?
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    That's not how I was taught this!

    I was told that Greek feet are when the second toe is longer than the big toe,
    Egyptian feet are when the second toe is shorter than the big toe,
    and Peasant feet are when all the toes are the same length...

    Anyone else heard it this way?

    By the way, according to your way I have Greek feet, and according to mine I have Egyptian.

    Zimmer, not sure where you got that. I have longer ring finger than index, and I'm definitely a woman. (My three kids will vouch for me.)

    I'd like to know this, too. Does anyone (maybe one of those great classificators we have) know something about this?
    The Indians did not stop the flood of immigrants - today they live in reservations.

    This is due to testosterone. There was a study on elite Rugby players and the longer the ring finger than the index correlated to higher testosterone levels and better performance.

    I wasn't even aware that there is a difference like that, as almost all index/ring fingers I obeserve are more or less the same length. I just notice that the sockets for the ring finger are deeper on my hands.

    I read about twenty articles on the ring finger length, the length is determined by testosterone level while in the womb. The longer it is compared to the index finger the more testosterone exposure while in the womb. They get an index number by dividing the length of the index finger by the length of the ring finger.. normal for a man is in the .9 range. The lower the number the higher your level of testosterone will be.

    Ok- I have one of each, one Greek (right foot) and one Roman (left). I guess I am definitely a mixture then? LOL
