Many people still believe that testosterone will make you kill your parents and run over small forest dwellers. Paradoxically, however, it is often men with low levels of testosterone who are moody, depressed and even angry, while men with normal or high testosterone levels are generally sociable and sociable.
Dr. Christina Wang from UCLA found that men with low T were probably more unpredictable and aggressive than men with high T, but once the Snarky T replaced, their posture and anger disappeared (1).
Improper administration (very high doses) of testosterone or steroids can cause aggressive tendencies ("temper tantrums") in men that could be predisposed to such behavior. Likewise, socioeconomic status may play a role.
Experience (and some studies) shows us that a significant part of the misconduct of males is due to high testosterone levels but low socioeconomic status. Men with high levels of testosterone, but also high socioeconomic status, can usually restrain because they know they have more to lose.
