    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.

Like other hormones and mind altering chemicals testosterone is also quasi drug that will make you psychotic and delusional. Too much is always bad, the reason people with high testosterone act all tough animals and talking non sense is because they are suffering from psychosis bc of the hormones, since consciousness is subjective they cant really know that they are out of their mind psychotic etc. If you are really “crazy” you dont know that you are crazy.

after reading the comments,it seems men are leaning more to be with other men, than women. We seem to be labeled more as the testerone vampires (true I do like the..) I hate to think I'm losing my man, by wanting him!!! I don't want to suck the man out of my man!! Geez!! This sucks!! So what the h ell are we supposed to do then?! I'm a woman who desires and wants my man! I don't want to make him less, or drive him to someone else!! This is the most depressing analysis!!!

Testosterone doesn't cause aggression. In normal, healthy people aggression is invoked by feelings of helplessness...usually surrounding a personal crisis, or some other complex, overwhelming scenario when a "fight or flight" response is triggered far too often. The tragedy of it is that after a certain age, our personality crystalizes and our psychological processes become physiological responses. For example, my mom isn't an aggressive or rude person...but she has this thing when she feels like when she's not getting across to someone when speaking, she automatically raises her voice...which may sound intimidating to some. overtime I understood that it's more of an idiosyncrasy than bad intention. Aggression in itself is not really a bad thing either...it

I wonder if when they are testing men for whether they are more competitive if they take into account how many brothers they have and whether they are older or younger. I’m guessing that would influence how competitive someone is but again I’m just guessing. I really don’t know. I’ve never researched it.

My ring finger and index finger are the same length. I had to have fertility treatments b/c of PCOS. I only got my period on average every 6 months. My bone density has always been low even when I was in my 30’s. Now that I’m 50, it’s even lower. I think this all has to do with PCOS b/c of the effect it has on hormones. I also have felt like I had no energy all my life but especially since I was 40. I’ve also struggled with depression. I think it’s all linked together. It’s a crappy card to be dealt.

I don't want to offend anyone, it is just my pure curiosity: Have any of those scientists test the testosterone level of a straight guy and compared it to the gay ones. I mean gays who are not taking pills to change their gender. I'm interested on how a man will think himself to be a woman? Does low testosterone level can change man's gender identity?

So you administer several behavioral test and randomly correlate it to testosterone? What about blood count? Iron levels? Calcium? Cortisol levels? Why, out of all of the complexities of the human body, do you think T causes anything other than biological development? You're making up stories to fit the puzzle.
