Leadership positions, according to the study, affect the hormonal background of women. This convinced scientists from the University of Wisconsin. As it turned out, behavior can also influence hormone levels, writes The Daily Mail.
The researchers measured testosterone levels in men and women in two stages: before the experiment and immediately after its completion. The volunteers were asked to assume the position of Director and to dismiss an employee.
Men in the "male role" calmly coped with the test. The level of testosterone they have not changed. Hormone levels in women taking over "men's role", increased significantly after the experiment. Apparently, the hormones not only affect internal functions of the body, but also on human behavior, shaping his image along with the habits and psychological traits.
