Female intuition may be linked to testosterone exposure in the womb: Study

Recommended by Dr. Michael White, Updated on October 25th, 2018

A new study suggests female intuition not only exists, but may be biological.

Researchers at the University of Granada, Barcelona Pompeu Fabra University and Middlesex University of London say female intuition is linked to the lower prenatal exposure to testosterone women receive in the womb.

Testosterone affects the development of the brain and can determine behaviour trends. Men, who received a higher amount of prenatal testosterone, tend to take more risks and are less intuitive than women, the researchers said.

They found "prenatal exposure to testosterone predisposes people to adopt a more reflexive and less intuitive mindset."

The researchers determined the prenatal testosterone exposure of study participants using the "digital ratio" dividing the length of the forefinger by the length of the ring finger of the same hand. The lower the ratio, the greater the prenatal testosterone received.

The study appears in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology.
