Psychometric Evaluation of the Tagalog and German Subjective Happiness Scales and a Cross-Cultural Comparison
The Subjective Happiness Scale (SHS) has recently been developed as a more complete measure for the assessment of molar subjective happiness. In the present study, we report on the translation and…
Lack of correlation between digit ratio (2D:4D) and Baron-Cohen's "Reading the Mind in the Eyes" test, empathy, systemising, and autism-spectrum quotients in a general population sample.

Results indicate that 2D:4D, because it is a ratio variable, is notably less precisely measurable than finger length, and one implication of this is that the marked geographical and population differences in typical 2D-4D levels, as reported in the literature, are veridical, and not due to divergent measurement habits across research groups.

Digit Ratio (2D:4D) in Twins: Heritability Estimates and Evidence for a Masculinized Trait Expression in Women from opposite-Sex Pairs
Investigation of the 2D:4D ratio of 44 men and 70 women from 36 identical and 21 fraternal twin pairs suggested that the trait is substantially heritable, consistent with a prediction from sex-hormone transfer theory.
EVIDENCE FOR ASSORTATIVE MATING ON DIGIT RATIO (2D:4D), A BIOMARKER FOR PRENATAL ANDROGEN EXPOSURE
It is argued that assortative mating on 2D:4D operates indirectly and may be mediated through the assortment on other, more perceptible, physical traits and psychological phenotypes that entertain associations with 2D-4D and are relevant for courtship and mate choice.
