Unnamed: What is this?
The fourth finger on the hand in Russian bearsthe name of the nameless. This name is also found in Sanskrit, Persian and Tatar. What is the reason? Why exactly the ring finger? So it was named because, in the opinion of representatives of these peoples, it does not bear any special functions and does not possess exclusive properties. But is it really so?
We'll figure it out!
In many other countries, the ring fingeris called annular. This is due to the tradition to wear on it an engagement ring - a symbol of marriage. In the Catholic faith it is worn on the left hand. This choice of a finger to confirm the bonds of marriage is by no means accidental. According to legend, only from the nameless on the left hand is a straight vein to the heart. In the Orthodox faith, everything is different - to wear the wedding ring is the ring finger of the right hand.
An important role is played by the ring finger in palmistry. This finger is responsible for the creative beginning of man. The longer it is, the more pronounced are talents and abilities for the arts. But the self-esteem of such people, on the contrary, is very low. The ideal ratio, according to the chiromantists, is the same length of the index and ring finger - then the person has both talent, and moderate egoism, and adequate self-esteem.
But the anatomy connects the ring finger withtestosterone level. The longer it is - the more this hormone is produced by the adrenal glands of a person. The length of the index finger is correlated with another hormone, a female hormone called estrogen. For this reason, by the way, curious statistics are revealed: among people with a long fourth finger there are many successful sportsmen. Their achievements are due to the fact that testosterone increases the level of aggression and speeds up decision-making - two things that are important in the competition.
But on the whole this wonderful properties of the fourthfingers end. In everyday life, the ring finger practically does not function without its brethren. This is due to the peculiarities of the location of the tendons in this part of the palm. Without the other fingers, the nameless is involved literally in a couple of activities. So, he can independently participate in typing on the keyboard, as well as his individual role in playing the musical instruments.
