That was awesome, just watched the whole thing, i thought it was real funny about how testosterone has a huge affect on whether or not to accept a deal. It reminds me about how when my friends and I play poker, every time we get down to the last 2 we always will bring up negotiation, and im known in my group for never ever accepting hahhahaha.
I seem to recall seeing this years ago, but a good rewatch. Thanks… longer ring finger FTW
I dont have time to watch it all, but i wonder would giving a lower rank chip testosterone, increase their rank?
Had to skim through this quickly, but I think they missed interviewing TC for this.
I’m also not sure I agree with the ending at all. Maybe blue collar workers have higher levels because they are doing physically demanding work, not because higher T makes them ill suited to an office job.
Personally, I never bought the idea that high T levels make someone more of an asshole. That’s just media-sponsored “roid rage” BS. Higher T just brings out more of the asshole in those who are ALREADY that way. In that sense, it’s a bit like drinking. Not everyone is a nasty drunk, just those who are nasty at all times, but perhaps more quiet about it before drinking.

They said “on average 8% higher” which really is nothing in the grander scheme of things. I would have expected it to be higher considering the environment is more open to confrontations and therefore higher levels of competition through challenging each others status. Some of the things said on a work site wouldn’t go down to well in the office. Add to that as you suggested - more physical work - among other factors.
Was an interesting documentary but really just left more questions than answers.
