Fact of the day : Testosterone administration impairs 'cognitive reflection' in men

Hey Awesomites

You must have tried solving brain teasers at some point of time.. right? Ok so how many of you tried to solve it right at that instant ( sensing your gut reaction ), but guessed it wrong? If so, you might be having loads of testosterone in your veins!


New research finds, high amounts of testosterone in blood makes men act first and think later by reducing the amount of 'cognitive reflection' they are engaged in, that is, making snap judgements quickly but reflecting on the moment later on.

In other words, it works by boosting confidence levels and social dominance effects.
