    That's fine and accurate. But that has zero to do with whether one is an introvert or an extrovert, which is what you claimed.

    I'm saying young men should exercise regularly. I know lots of introverts, and most of them just slouch in front of a damn computer or TV screen all day. Their posture deteriorates, they have bad acne, and they can't stand people. I've actually convinced some of them to get a little damn exercise (riding bikes, swimming, basketball, whatever) with me, and they love it! It's not rocket science that exercise is good for you. Sheesh!

    Anyone other than me find it fascinating and telling that the vast majority of folks who have voted are introverts.

    Try again. Here's exactly what you said:

    You are connecting introversion with low testosterone levels. Exercise was an ancillary issue. Now, do you want to retract this, or do you want to prove the claim?

    I'm just sharing a story here. I think certain people can be excessively introverted; they literally **** their pants in social situations, they generally have bad skin and hair, terrible posture, etc. I went through that stage, too. I think male introverts who don't exercise are at risk of extremely low testosterone levels, which has deleterious effects on one's health.

    Don't you agree that prolonged periods without physical activity are unhealthy!?

    How much of an introvert or extrovert I am is directly proportional to how much I have had to drink.

    Oooo...strangely enough I found a study that seems to suggest the opposite:

    Extroverts 'more likely to be overweight' | Mail Online

    Of course, this is only supposing that an increase in exercise and therefore testosterone leads to weight loss. Not a crazy supposition, but not a given either.

    Certainly not what I expect. I'm going to have to throw my anecdotal evidence in with 1984. When I work out, I feel much more aggressive/cheerful/outgoing. I ran 9.5 miles yesterday and felt like She-Ra!
