Being a part of Cardinal Nation is a tremendous privilege. Stan the Man, the Birds on the Bat, and Busch Stadium are all part of what makes St. Louis the best baseball city in America. Watching the Cards take the field is enough to make any man feel more alive, but it may also be a sign of high testosterone.
A recent study pending publication by Psychological Science reveals that men who choose the color red in a competitive environment often have higher base levels of testosterone than other men who choose the color blue. (Science Daily) Lead researcher, Daniel Farrelly, a psychological scientist from the University of Sunderland, said, “The research shows that there is something special about the color red in competition, and that it is associated with our underlying biological systems.”
The competitive study involved 73 men who were fully unaware of the study’s purpose. The men were asked to choose between red or blue to symbolize their markers during a competitive event. Each of the men underwent saliva sampling before and after the competition. Results from saliva testing showed that the competitors who chose red over blue also have a higher baseline of testosterone. The specific choice of color did have zero influence on actual competitive outcome. What is undeniable is the correlation between testosterone and the color red. For all you Cubs fans, this just shows that you’d be more of a man if you ditched your lovable losers to join Cardinal Nation. Choosing Cubs blue may mean you have bigger problems than just watching another Wrigleyville meltdown.
