Study: Testosterone Administration Induces A Red Shift in Democrats

by Chris Black


– Weakly affiliated Democrats had higher natural testosterone levels than strongly affiliated democrats (lower testosterone = more Left-Wing).

– Receiving testosterone treatment made weakly affiliated Democrats more supportive of Republicans (higher testosterone = more Right-Wing).

– The treatment also improved their overall mood.

– “No effects” were found for testosterone treatment in strongly affiliated Democrats (not sure what the study meant by this tbh – maybe that treatment didn’t alter political alignment).

Study concludes: “Our findings provide evidence that neuroactive hormones affect political preferences.”
