    Testosterone has long been seen as a metaphor for aggression, but is there really anything to the idea of the testosterone-driven male? Prominent scientists explain how subtle the hormone’s effects actually are.
    Men with a lot of testosterone have long been accused of violent and competitive behavior. Now the image of the sex hormone is changing. Unlike in the animal world, the general statement "testosterone makes one aggressive" cannot be confirmed in humans, and recent studies suggest that it can actually even promote selfless behavior. One of the leading experts in this field is Jean-Claude Dreher from Lyon. He says his laboratory experiments show that testosterone does not make men aggressive but instead allows them to act in a strategic manner. Those who are more testosterone-charged tend to be friendlier towards others in order to bolster their own social status. British behavioral psychologist Simon Baron Cohen demonstrates how testosterone determines our gender characteristics when we are still in the womb. Meanwhile, his colleague Oliver Schultheiss from Erlangen has found out how testosterone can improve our learning abilities.

Apparently the fake measles vaccines and others have a DNA component in it to make males weak and dull via manipulating the male hormone. Oh wait, what are we seeing throughout the world now via the highly vaccinated societies? Men who don't know that they are men is on the rise, and super weak willed men everywhere, and ofcourse, men who have dead sperm after their first few vaccines. wink !!! wakey wakey Masculinity being chemically destroyed. FACT! All by design!

For individuals who have low T or perhaps have an issue where the body isn't utilizing what T they make, a bio-identical DHEA/Ppregnenolone supplement can sometimes be useful. You can also buy it over the counter, though I'm not sure how helpful a generically made product would be. It's not a bad thing to try before going to a doctor and getting T supplementation, which can sometimes be pretty costly.

The trouble with this film is that male and female responses are based on "averages". No one person is average therefore the information lacks the detail of reality. Averages are usless at understanding realities. The huge range of individual personality traits are removed when averaging the data, never mind if the individual answering the questions minset is taken into account. Therefore, objective studies of such matters are flawed due to the nature of the test setter and the bias of the studies conclusions. Accurately formulated, non biased testing of cognative function has yet to be developed.

Weight training increases your testosterone production, I’ve found it increases your sex drive also. Testosterone builds muscles, it is a wonder drug, anabolic steroids are fine, if you are careful, when used intelligently they help create incredible muscles. Eating Macdonalds everyday for a month, is more toxic. Testosterone is demonized , because it doesn’t fit with the feminist PC, anti men morons!!

Complex topic but I agree with agression not doing much with testosterone levels. I am a female and if someone starts to punch me out of the blue like a drunk girl has last year, I am not going to just stand there and be punched. I attack. I get angry too, not just men and I can also get vicious. I think the problem is social behaviour. Men like to show off depending on their personalities and get into fights on purpose. They also try to show dominance this way and try to impress females. By the way guys, females will not get impressed by seeing men in fights. Bloody noses are not sexy, ok? Gentlemen are.

Men with high testosterone must be able to provide for women and family because they generally threaten any other men around the woman and destroy her chances of opportunity and career. ( Also there is high percentage of male aggressors in prison ) this is the trade-off which one must take seriously before getting trapped in a relationship you might not be allowed to leave.

Improved social status???!?!?!? Disgusting. That seems like an encouragement of selfish behavior. We need to cut out these reward systems, because philantropy needs to come from parental instincts or cognitive logic, not for self reward.

Estrogen is the cause of aggression during testosterone treatment cessation or if the treatment is too high the "peak and trough" of T will cause the body to over and under produce... Over production is the all-around and unavoidable result of normal usage as well, and is why when doses get too low T users will experience 'roid rage'.

I believe that when women are pregnant with boys the testosterone is recognised as a foreign invader and her body reduces the testosterone like antibodies attack invading germs. When she has a second male child her body recognised the same invader and with each male pregnancy her body lowers available testosterone in the fetus by increasing her estrogen levels. There are several studies on this which also includes a study on multiple male births (( twins, triplets and quads) showing their extremely low testosterone at birth and much higher estrogen levels were noticed . One of these doctor teams has followed these twins, triplets and quads their entire lives ( thus far) and those boys who were born to families with five or more son's and the findings are very startling....more than 60% of these men are extremely femine, with very little testosterone being made n their own bodies.

@Ev Cruel not at all! I have just left my ex as I got tired of his lazy ass eating all my food, sweating all over my beautiful furniture, spending my money, driving my beautiful sports car, using my contacts and being just like every other user that which is the Canadian sissy man, I bounced him around like a basketball and dumped his ass penniless on the street right where I found him 17 ago with nothing but lint in his pockets! Next time he raises a hand to hit a woman he will think twice! He's lucky I didn't skin him alive and feed him to my cat! Women no longer need you guys, we have enough sperm on ice to wipe you out and never need to produce another man for millions of years...you men are disposable and have become obsolete

Testosterone is good in its natural form, secreted by the glands in our bodies. Every testosterone provided by pharma companies is synthetic, man made from plant sources as soybeans and yams. We live in a world of pharma where it is relative easy/ expensive sometimes to start testosterone replacement therapy. It is WRONG and NOT worth it in the LONG run. In the first months/ years it seems good for some people and then side effects appear. All studies show TRT is good as long is profitable for pharma to sell TRT as a miracle to naive men. Our lifestyle dictates testosterone release and our bodies are good enough to produce it and make use of it. There is a reason test levels decrease with age. Do not play with synthetic testosterone, because it SHORTENS lifespan, it is opposite to what pharma wants you to believe it, portrayed as a fountain of youth. Look at bodybuilders after stopping use of test , look at the men using TRT , there is nothing sane to use synthetic forms of testosterone. Change diet, watch close what you eat and drink, pay attention to sleep periods and at last, accept that yes, test level decrease with aging. Why would anyone in their right minds would want to inject 2-3 times per week with test just to keep steady levels , feel good for couple of months then levels crash for NO reason and TRT is a failure. I repeat it, there is a reason levels of test decrease, it is part of our life cycle and we should accept it.

Why does she say, "bad reputation"? Testosterone is not bad. It does way more than regulating the sex drive. Women too have testosterone which shows that its role is more varied than popular media tends to promote. Humans are biological and therefore dynamic systems that respond to the environment. We have not seen the end of this by far.
