The Association Between Digit Ratios and Conspicuous Consumption, and the Moderating Role of Intrasexual Competition

We investigated the effects of hormones on conspicuous consumption. Low digit ratios (high prenatal testosterone exposure) were associated with greater conspicuous consumption in men, particularly when intrasexual competition was high. In women, high digit ratios (high prenatal estrogen) were only associated with greater conspicuous consumption when intrasexual competition was high.
