    Is testosterone a cognitive enhancer?

    Ive been reading a lot on how testosterone has helped lift brain fog, helped with memory, motivation, and focus, while also combating anxiety and depression.

    there is a relationship between dopamine and IQ, and testosterone boosts dopamine. so it has me wondering, does testosterone increase cognitive function and work as a nootropic?

    if so, why is there this stereotype that high testosterone = dumb and reckless?

    Is most definitely is when you go from having low test to top of the scale. if you keep estrogen in range it's makes me mentally sharp.

    Big physique is classicslly associated with high testosterone , although it's not necessarily a linear relationship. People with big physiques are also classically categorized as stupid for some unknown reason that probably dates back hundreds of years.

    Therefore, high testosterone is incorrectly related to dum and reckless, as you put it

    Men without test have no balls and live their lives very feminine. In todays age the more feminine you live, the more intelligent you are considered by society.

    All that roughness and masculinity is seen as just uncivilized and primitive. If you have 10 inch arms and talk like a valley girl, with your primary hobby involving computers or videogames you must be more intelligent than that muscular doucebag that likes adrenaline and makes your wife salivate in the most animalistic sense.

    A lot of men prescribed anti depressants would be far better off with TRT. It most definitely can help with mood anxiety and depression in a positive way if used correctly

    Good article, I've experience an increase in cognitive functions when we went on TRT and HGH.
