A bat and a ball costs $1.10 in total. The back cost $1.00 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?
If you said 10 cents, you’re wrong AND you might have higher Testosterone levels. The correct answer is 5 cents.
A recent study found that men given Testosterone were more impulsive and confident in their decisions. BUT the men receiving the Testosterone also were more likely to answer incorrectly.
What does this mean? Besides the fact that is means we now have a reason why men and women are from different planets?😆 It may indicate the role Testosterone plays in confidence and impulsivity but also to our instincts, survival mechanisms and mating behavior.
These studies interest me, because it explains a lot of how the Man’s Mind works. Many people believe men’s health is purely a physiological approach. But in fact to really deal with male health issues (ED, BPH, Prostate Cancer, Sexual dysfunction) you must really understand how men think and manage their mental health. Thats half the battle, and so understanding that part of a man requires lots of studying and observation.
Moral of the story? When the man in your life insists he’s right, but he’s really wrong, blame his Testosterone.
