Study on Testosterone increase just from pretending
« on: December 12, 2010, 01:31:55 pm »
Interesting article about increasing testosterone by just faking confident body language.

Interestingly (as I've read before) bosses/business owners who are in positions of power have higher levels of testosterone (and lower cortisol) than sub ordinates in what are considered to be less stressful positions. I back this up with my own anecdotal experience.

I do too.
I bet this correlates to the "fake confidence until it's real" approach as well. At some point it becomes real and your testosterone levels are most likely elevated at that point.

Just goes to show that health is complicated and our hormones are affected by things other than diet. I enjoy being the boss, the stress is there but it's a different stress.
