    Have you heard of the extreme male brain theory (Simon Baron-Cohen)?

    Well if NTs have less testosterone what of the NF males?

    I think it's all kind of bogus. Testoterone can influence your psyche but the correlation, if any, is minimal.

    Yes. My tentative theory is that NTs were exposed to more testosterone in the womb when the basic brain pattern was laid down (this is fairly easy to gage with 2d:4d ratio). This "masculinization" predisposes them to autistic spectrum disorders (according to Baron-Cohen). INTs are over-represented when it comes to ASDs.

    The amount of testosterone circulating in the blood in adulthood is different from prenatal levels, which are under the influence of the mother.

    There does seem to be this odd discrepancy whereby male NTs are often less typically masculine and female NTs more so. I can think of a few reasons for that (both biochemical and sociological) but it would be pure speculation.

    I guess yes.

    I was quite borderline ISTP/INTP until pubertia. But the more I gained testosterone, the more I became S. I think that xNTJ have more testrosterone than xNTP though. The first want to conquer te world to submit every member of the opposite sex, the second prefer arguing than sex.

    But do NT females have less progesteron?

    Personally, I think it's because we don't see the logic in carrying on traditional roles and behaviors when there's no point to it. If something needs doing, the best person for the job does it. And we are far less likely to give a crap about what people think about us. One of the things I'm loving about dating an INTP is that he flat-out Does. Not. Care. what people think about him (but is still considerate of me).

    As to the OP, I don't think NTs have less testosterone. But I think they aren't very likely to let their lives be ruled by it.

    This is closer to what's going on, I think. In my estimation, some people are more sensitive to the neurological effects of testosterone, while others are more sensitive to the somatic effects of testosterone. However, outside of the womb, where testosterone comes from the mother, the body ends up producing the majority of its testosterone through responses to somatic stimuli (for example, the microtrauma that causes muscular hypertrophy).

    My father had a full beard when he was 18. I'm in my mid twenties and I still can't grow a full beard. But it's common these days. At least in Norway it is. The ones that can grow a full beard as young adult are in the tiny box, the rest of us who still look like we're fifteen at the age of 25 are in the big box. When I'm 40 I'm gonna look like I'm 25, so I'm probably gonna date 18 year olds, teheh.

    dont get me wrong, I enjoy playing basketball, swimming, pingpong, once in a while, but I prefer staying indoors and stimulate my mind
    But I always wanted to try skydiving
    Do the finger test: If your ring finger is longer than the index finger, you have enough/too much testosterone.

    Seriously though, I'm NT to a fault, and I prefer physical outdoor activities. And do try skydiving!! It's an expensive addiction. Your wallet will hate me for suggesting it!

    Type doesn't necessarily affect one's hormone levels.

    I have enough/too much testosterone...and my body hates it!

    Could having more testosterone affect being T?
