It's funny, because if you go find their actual paper, they didn't measure testosterone at all. "In this paper we examine whether testosterone, which is associated with male dominance seeking and which we have proxied by male CEO age, is associated with M&A withdrawals, the use of tender offers, and bid initiation." Fucking ridiculous, I'm surprised this paper even got published.

From their actual paper's conclusion section: "In this paper we examine whether testosterone, which is associated with male dominance seeking and which we have proxied by male CEO age, is associated with M&A withdrawals, the use of tender offers, and bid initiation." No, they didn't sample anyone's testosterone. Go RTFA the real FA.

I read the article. There is nothing written in this article to suggest that experience and testosterone were deconvolved suitably in their analysis. Do you have the actual paper, where they somehow account for age and wisdom? If they did not test *before* and *after* being giving people testosterone there is no basis for claiming their results were from testosterone and not wisdom. It's more likely their statistics are fubar than this is a good study.

He did not equate iPhoneOS and Microsoft Windows. Notice how he was quoting someone? "At least Microsoft allows me the freedom to be "tasteless". He was responding directly to the 2nd Reply from "jedidiah" that equated the two. Please read the whole thread before in interject nonsense.

Oh, so there you are!
