I3. Hormonal Effects on Materialism and the Moderating Role of Intrasexual Competition

Across two studies, we demonstrate how digit ratio (2D:4D), an indicator of prenatal exposure to estrogen and testosterone, is predictive of materialism. Furthermore, we show how intrasexual competition, the rivalry with same-sex others over access to romantic partners, moderates the association between digit ratio and materialistic tendencies.
