The Week contest: Gut think
Last week's question: A new study has found that a shot of extra testosterone makes men less likely to think before they act, possibly because the hormone boosts confidence and eliminates the self-doubt that helps people evaluate their decisions. Please come up with a medical term for that testosterone-induced, male overconfidence that "I'm right!"
