Finger Length Predicts SAT Performance

For full article go to:

A quick look at the lengths of children's index and ring fingers can be used to predict how well students will perform on SATs, new research claims. Kids with longer ring fingers compared to index fingers are likely to have higher math scores than literacy or verbal scores on the college entrance exam, while children with the reverse finger-length ratio are likely to have higher reading and writing, or verbal, scores versus math scores.

Guess which finger (index or ring) is longer on my hand (I have a BS in Mathematics).
