Happiness: only women have the gene
You are always happy. But how do you do it? You just have the happiness gene
Researchers at the University of South Florida have analyzed the happiness level of 345 volunteers, women and men, who carry the Maoa gene, as different studies show that women seem happier than men, although, paradoxically, they suffer more anxiety.
Happy women, aggressive men
The Maoa gene makes women happy and fulfilled because it retains certain neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin. These two molecules promote well-being, relaxation, motivation, sexual pleasure in particular.
Some men also have the Maoa gene. But, with them, his expression is quite different. Far from providing happiness, the Maoa gene, in men, produces, on the contrary, aggressiveness, antisocial behavior, a tendency to alcoholism. However, it is the same gene.
These very different effects in men are believed to be due to testosterone destroying the positive effects of Maoa.
Fortunately, if you don't have it, that doesn't mean you don't have the right to happiness, because not everything is in the DNA.
