Realize that the palm is rounded so it can distort your perception about what finger is actually longer. You might want to measure as shown to be sure.

Looking at my hand my ring fingers look longer, but when I measure my index fingers are actually longer.

Ruthie - all my life I thought my ring fingers were longer, but lo & behold, it looks like in one hand the index is slightly longer when measuring! It's freaky!
Until I get the kit & get a friend to help, it looks like I am a hunter, but barely!
The secondary characteristics are more gatherer & explorer-like, though, which is confusing - e.g.left handed/no caffiene.

Maybe in 50 years, they will discover nuances about the GTs for folks like me. Meanwhile the hunter diet looks simpler to keep except that lettuce & tomato, basics of the Amercian diet will become less frequent.
S S & L,

I am talking about the palm being rounded across where the fingers attach. That is why you need to measure.

MrsT...I wear glasses and see well.  I never ever gave a thought as to length of fingers before.  There have been way tooo many other more important things to consider.
I kept fingers together and pressed down hard...I spread fingers as far as possible and pressed down hard...
It is still easy to see difference in length.
I will wait til book arrives at local library.  I asked it to be ordered, and librarian complied; and I have it on 'hold'.
Maybe there is an unusual way to measure.

I am not saying that you might not be able to tell just by looking if your finger difference is really big, just that the safe thing to do is to measure.

You can watch the finger measuring video Dr. D made and posted in his blog and on YouTube.

Thank you Don for the link...
cause I was thinking that seeing is not believing.

By measuring...it is what I am able to see.

I guess I got too much female hormones in the womb.

Is that why I could get pregnant with my husband hanging his pants on the end of the bed?  That's what he used to joke.

Hi Cheryl,

Great to see you here again. I missed your participation.  

Based on the Advanced GenoType Calculator tables your Genotype is 100% confirmed if you have your blood type, Rh, secretor status and your torso, leg, and finger length measurements.

You don't need the other measurements and data points to determine your GT. All they will do is help you determine how well you match the typical characteristics of your GT.


Thanks Don!  The fingerprint info in the book was pretty interesting.  It looks like it can give some hints as to disease risk.  I tried last night but didn't have the right quality of paper.  Of course I have lots of lines and barely discernible fingerprints, so will have to work on the fingerprinting to get the best info.

I thought about you when I read the section about IR saunas for detoxing.  I think you were looking into that.

I just used a magnifying glass to examine my families fingerprints

Yes, I looked into IR saunas for awhile, but decided against them because of all the electromagnetic radiation from all the electric heating elements.

You can also just use a piece of cardstock, like a recipe card, to eyeball it, and put a mark for each finger's length.  On my husband it was obvious enough that his ring fingers are longer by 1/8 to 1/4 inch.  The important thing is to measure them both with the ruler or index card positioned as in the video (note which fingers it is placed between), with your fingers somewhat relaxed so you don't push it up with the webbing by your knuckles.  As long as you do them pretty much the same way, you'll be able to tell if the ring finger is longer.

I did my original measurements with my eye ball which was all screwed up.I recently got my wife to help me measure and got a lot of different results.The odd thing is that I am all things masculine except the finger length,and they came out a tie,which makes me a gatherer.I was bummed at first but the diet seems to already be working much better than the BTD.

If your daughter is too young to donate blood, you can determine Rh with blood type kit from a drugstore or nap.

NAP Kit

If you are also ordering a Genotype kit you can get both kits at the same time and save a little on postage.

This finger measuring was driving me crazy.  I was told I had webbed fingers and did not believe it till now!  I could not get one measurement that was the same as the last one.

Finally, I just laid my hand on the desk, palm side up and measured the fingers from the base finger crease by the palm.  It helps that my ruler was a clear, colored one.  Seems both my index fingers are longer, but just by a hair.

Well after being pretty rigid on the diet for almost 5 days now and having a final 2-1/2 days of inflammation flareups, burping after almost every meal, gas, and now finally tummy getting swollen up like a barrel and constipation with a final struggle to pass what ended up being diarreha, I felt something was not right.  Something felt very off.

So I sat and spent careful time measuring and marking on the ruler my finger measurements 4 times tonight.  Studied the instructions more carefully in the book and watched You-Tube again.  Turns out I have been very wrong.

My ring fingers are visably longer than my index fingers (on the ruler); and with my other measurements all intact I went to the advanced calculator and no matter what way I try to spell it, I fall into the Hunter category.  

So really be careful with your measurements.

The same thing happened to me funkymuse...at first I wasn't measuring with a two-sided ruler so my fingers appeared to be the same length but when I looked more carefully using a two-sided ruler with darker lines so I could see better, my ring finger is clearly longer than my index finger.  One mistake I was doing was expecting to see a length difference in "inches" but when realizing that a few cm's could make all the difference in the world I saw the difference so clearly.  I measured over & over again & it's for real...my ring finger is definitely longer by 2+ cm's.  I was so frustrated because I fit the description of a Hunter so strongly but I kept coming up as a Gathererer. So to all who are measuring...be very careful & precise so you are sure to get it right.

Right on Rex... Now I feel 'right' again!  ha...

I told myself and others have said... just try it!  And so I thought, yes that's right and if it's not right, well I'm sure to know it!  The body DOES NOT lie!

I assume you mean 2+ mm, not cm, because 2+ cm is almost an inch.

I found an easy way to measure your ring fingers your myself is to put the ruler between your middle and ring finger with the measurement lines facing the ring finger then hold your hand up to a bathroom mirror. That makes it very easy to read the measurement accurately yourself.

Oh, so frustrated!!  It seems like it changes every, single time I do this!!  Argh!!!

(Floppy finger webbing...)


Me too ... grrrrrrr
At first I thought both my index fingers were identical and longer than my ring fingers ... yesterday I tried measuring again and although it still looks like the index fingers r longer and ring fingers slightly shorter ... my index and ring finger on the right hand seem slightly longer than the left hand fingers  
Frustrating ...  
I keep having to change Genotypes  
Right now I'm working on a list that fit all three till I get it right or till I do my secretor test ... we'll see in time ... patience is a virtue ...

Quoted from Devora
My D4 ring finger is longer on both hands!  STRESS!  I always felt I was masculine in many ways, but now I have the proof!  Eek!  Stress!  I suppose it is somewhat common.  Still.

It was my understanding that the relative length of ring and index fingers was about the hormones you were exposed to in the womb.  I didn't get the impression that it had any bearing on your masculinity or femininity.  

I know a tall slender woman with VERY long fingers.  Her hands are so striking I can clearly picture her hand; the ring finger is about the length of her middle finger, probably a centimeter longer than her index finger.  She is a kind balanced woman who I would consider feminine and a pleasure to know.

No one is completely masculine or feminine. I am a woman, but have a lot of typical masculine interests. I also wear men's jeans as I am built that way. Actually, I think most women wear men's jeans, so maybe that's not a good example.
But emotionally, I am very feminine. All of us have some of both, but are more one or the other. Any other feedback out there?


I just did my fingerprints, but couldn't see them too well. I did have a good amount of lines.  Could it also mean I washed a lot of dishes in my life & wash my hands many times a day?
I think 4 of them match, so that's another hunter thing.
Maybe I better get to the police station !!
Cheers,

Absolutely. I always tease my husband that he's the woman in our relationship because he's a lot more sensitive, affectionate and irrational than I am! And he's the one who wants flower gardens in the yard while I'm planning vegetable beds.

Try get your hands on this book: 'Why men don't listen and women can't read maps' by Barbara and Alan Pease (not quite sure if I have the title word perfect- it's a while since I read it).

Apparently a person's femininity/ masculinity is determined while in uterus (sound familiar?)- the book contains a test/ scale that lets you see exactly where you fit.

If nothing else, it will make you lough out loud!

You got the title exactly right, Yvonne -- here's the book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Dont-Lis.....200431467&sr=1-2

This sounds really interesting!  (But I can read maps just fine, thank you -- though I don't walk around talking while I brush my teeth.)  Will have to get a look at this book!

I think I've got all my measurments right except for my fingers,  I'am guessing there fairly close and going with a tie(which means longer index for the charts)

So I guess I'l go explore the explorer diet
