Technophobia or fear of new technology begins before we are born, say researchers. University of Bath researchers claim pre-natal testosterone exposure has an effect on the way the brain develops that makes it either easier or more difficult to grasp technology. Mark Brosnan, study leader at Bath said: “Lower levels of pre-natal testosterone exposure were related to anxieties concerning the use of new technologies, such as computers.” Levels of exposure were measured by comparing the length of the students’ ring finger to the index finger, with the greater difference in length indicating higher exposure to pre-natal testosterone, according to the Daily Mail.
