please may I measure your fingers?

I read this article in the Vancouver Sun this morning. A study in England connects the ratio of forefinger length to ring finger length to prenatal exposure to testosterone. The resulting proportion of ring to forefinger is also an indicator of whether a person is oriented more to math or language. Women typically have equal forefinger to ring finger proportions, men have slightly longer ring fingers. A longer ring finger indicates orientation to math.

I measured my fingers and Alex's fingers at breakfast time. We both have longer ring fingers than forefingers. Alex asked, then why is Math Principles 11 so hard? I told him I don't know.

question: what's your ratio?
