Studies on gender differences in aggressive behavior are examined. In
proportions of their total aggression scores, boys and girls are
verbally about equally aggressive, while boys are more physically and
girls more indirectly aggressive. There are genetic determinants of both
physical and indirect aggression, suggesting that both types of
aggression give evolutionary advantages. Analyses of 2D:4D finger length
ratios indicate that the prenatal hormonal environment is crucial for
the development of these aggressive strategies.
