Paranormal belief is a feminine trait

So says this study:
Higher (feminised) 2D:4D correlated with stronger beliefs in men, even when controlled for age, education, adult height and weight, and birth length and weight. Shorter (feminised) finger length correlated with more superstition among women, but not when controlled for the same covariates.
The digit ratios are known to be innate, but there could be some other forces at work.
