The fingers of Albert Einstein: his finger-ratio points to autism!
January 29, 2009
In 1930 a German hand reader, Marianne Raschig, has taken the handprints of Albert Einstein (he was born in Germany) and one year later they were presented in her book: ‘Hand und Persönlichkeit’.
Almost 80 years later the ‘2D: 4D digit ratio’ (ratio between the index finger & ring finger) is now measured from the high quality handprints.
|Einstein had a ‘2D:4D finger ratio’ of: 0.93
The high quality handprints of Albert Einstein can found in the article:
The picture below is also taken from the German book. The results of a detailed measurement procedure (taken by a Dutch psychologist) indicates that the ‘2D:4D digit ratio’ is for both hands: 0.93.
This is especially interesting because researchers at Cambridge and Oxford universities believe Albert Einstein displayed signs of autism (Asperger syndrome). Earlier research on finger length & autism has indicated that a low digit ratio (0.94 or lower) highers the chance for the presence of autism!
Therefore it seems fair to conclude that the fingers of Einstein provide evidence which support the perceptions of the UK researchers who suspect that Albert Einstein had autism!
