    Humorously enough, in the last new pop personality system we discussed here -- the one that attached one of four archetypes to one of four biochemicals (dopamine, testosterone, estrogen, and I think serotonin) -- the Director type correlates most to NT and is the one attached to testosterone.

    (The theory could be complete hogwash, it's just funny to see it in complete disagreement to this supposition.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Barring any medical conditions, mens' and womens' testosterone levels don't overlap. Womens' are always much lower. And yet there is substantial overlap between the genders in personality traits such as aggressiveness, competitiveness, interest in sports, physical activity, etc. The reason is that hormones are only one influence on behaviour and personality and interests. There are far more that have nothing to do with hormones.

    Even something like body hair is not a direct measure of testosterone levels. Some hair follicles are more sensitive to hormones than others. That's why some women can sprout a few long stray hairs on the chin, or why some can get noticeable hair growth on the toes, etc. It's not that their androgen levels are anywhere near those of most men, their follicles might just be more responsive to lower levels.
    Oh, never thought of that

    Just don't tell Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lance Armstrong, or Edwin Moses. They might kick your ass.

    But it's just a bullshit folk way of thinking about biochemistry and psychology.

    I doubt it. Besides what has already been mentioned, personally I have always loved physical activities, climbing in particular.

    From what I understand, testosterone is linked primarily, not to aggression, but to competition, and most NTs I know can be very competitive in the areas that they are interested in.

    If by less you mean 'roughly the same', then yes.

    if baldness is found in more NTs, then I'd suspect testoserone to be involved.

Note: it always failed.
    Hope some nice gay porn came out of that experiment, lol

    Not sure about testosterone but I seem to have less adrenaline than other people.
