the thing is... you want to insist that I'm completely wrong, but it's a fact that men and women have different levels of hormones. Every individual has different levels, actually...
bottom line is you really shouldn't judge anyone before you get to know them.
still, testosterone is what makes men act like assholes.

The fact that every individual has different levals of hormones has not once been disputed, and I agree with you that you shouldn't judge anyone before you get to know them, and perhaps not even then.
So if I buy into your theory that testosterone makes men act like assholes (which I don't), what makes women act like assholes?

well you might think it was the car that cut you off in traffic that made you that way, or that second cup of coffee -- but somehow or another it all involves chemical changes throughout the body and in the brain.
genetics and upbringing probably have more to do with personality than gender does.

still I can't help but think that estrogen plays a big part in a person's mental health, and women's levals of it fluctuate more than men.

Not sure how BIG a part, but a part for sure.
The mind is a wonderful thing and can overcome all sorts of physical changes if trained to do so.
Like some people can function through pain on a daily basis and some are completely debilitated by it.
So it is with hormones and such.
Women have estrogen that leads us to make irrational decisions sometimes. Men have testosterone which leads them to put their jobs on the line to get some strange.
Hormones are powerful things and lead to interpersonal issues without a doubt.
Had a good friend who transitioned from male to female, and on the estrogen, she burst into tears in the supermarket and later said "I feel totally crazy."
Welcome to being a woman.

...maybe its the hornones or somethjng, but why has every woman manager ive worked for end up being overly emotional and high-strung to the point of micromanaging, while every man i have worked for seemed to be able to keep an "even keel" no matter the situation.
Is it that these women have more to prove, so end up smothering their employees? Is it te hormone thing? Do i just have lousy luck with female managers?
