The aggression part of the beard is derived from the testosterone level in the body. For a full nourished beard, you need to have good testosterone level. And thus people tend to think that the bearded guy is more aggressive because of their active testosterone. The maturity part of the beard is derived from the fact that, growing a beard is no kid’s play. It takes a lot of patience and persistence to come up with great beards.
