You don't see the connection between increased aggression and acting out aggressively?

That's more of me poorly phrasing my statement.
In my experience (observing others), how much you act out while on cycle is just about the same as while off. Granted, the severity of the acting out is going to increase, but from what I've seen, if you lose your cool while on cycle, it's probably in a situation you were going to if you were off cycle too."That was the only way you could destroy me. Neither do I quail at death nor act in deference to any god. So drop your talk, I come resolved to die. But first, there are these gifts I bring for you."

When I was on prednisone, I asked the doctor about the aggressiveness I felt, and he said that the prednisone does that. I said if steroids do that, then I'd never take them to lift bigger weights, the cost was too high. His answer was that anabolic steroids did not do the same thing that this corticosteroid did... So yes, some steroids can make you rage a bit, but they are not all created equal.
One of the possible side effects of the prednisone ( corticosteroid ) is possible psychotic break ( I got real close ), but corticosteroids are muscle wasters, and not athletic enhancing.

Cracky here took roids for a while, and he said he had a few times where his aggression was higher than normal.

If ICY were a regular poster here I'm sure he could help us out."That was the only way you could destroy me. Neither do I quail at death nor act in deference to any god.

I don't know anything about the psychological differences between medicinal steroids and non-medicinal ones, but speaking about Biology, which I have a BS in, you essentially cannot take any hormonal drugs without pretty severe behavior consequences. Some hormones are more tolerable than others, obviously, but even birth control pills for women can have pretty horrible side-effects. Not everyone experiences the same side-effects, but it's ignorant to downplay the aggression some do experience. When I had to take medicinal steroids in the past, my ex-wife used to tell me I was like a different person.
