Anna Dreber (Pseudo-Endocrinologist)

"Long-term, above-average testosterone levels may perhaps eventually lead to irrational risk taking, and thus lower profits.....This is maybe what we see today."

- Response to a study claiming testosterone may be to blame for the financial crisis.

**I figured I better look into Dreber's area of specialization, and was a little shocked to see she is an economist. I wasn't surprised to find she seems to take special interest in 'gender issues', though, and has written a few articles on various Normo topics........What surprised me the most, however, is that she isn't a proctologist, because her quirky ideas on testosterone and the market are full of shit. Which would qualify her perfectly as a government economic specialist.**

    This quote was merely a description of how other researcher's have interpreted their results- not Dreber's interpretation. If you read the Dreber/Apicella paper the high testosterone men in their study weren't actually irrational as the media keeps suggesting.
