Determine woman's personality by figure

December 5, 2008 7:24:26 AM PST
You may be able to tell something about a woman's personality by her figure, according to an anthropologist at the University of Utah.The professor says she found that women with flatter hips, or a higher waist-to-hip ratio, are more assertive, stronger and better at handling stress.

She found they are more likely to support themselves and their families and less likely to have an hourglass figure.

She says it all comes down to hormones, some of which increase fat around the waist, but also increase strength and stamina.

By the way, ladies with hourglass figures have high fertility and lower rates of chronic disease.
