Strange but True / Testosterone

testosterone-21 Testosterone Alone Does Not Cause Violence

Hormones don’t necessarily make men violent, but they do cause them to seek social dominance

Clip: “Arguably, the weak correlation between testosterone and violence gives us reason to be optimistic about the human race: Whereas other animals battle over mates as a direct result of their seasonal fluctuations in testosterone and other hormones, humans have discovered other ways to establish pecking orders. Which isn’t to say that we can’t rapidly adapt to the modern-day manifestations of our violent past: McAndrews’s work demonstrated that one surefire way to raise a man’s testosterone level is to allow him to handle a gun.”
