In brief: Depends . . .

It depends upon what hormone you're asking.
For instance, there isn't any link btwn thyroid hormone & aggression. Same for PTH & gh. Not much in literature re lh, fsh, prolactin & even estradiol. Although very little data suggests link btwn high testosterone & mood changes, i warn pts about change in mood for worse, as in 'roid rage, similar to road rage, eg more aggressive, agitated, irritable.

I do find patients taking testosterone supplementation to be more aggressive or to have more aggressive tendencies to be more noticeable
