In order to act on any tissue, testosterone has to bond with a special receptor, the androgen receptor. Rather like your radio has to be tuned to the station you want to hear. Only those tissues that have androgen receptors (eg the prostate, the penis and certain parts of the brain) can detect, and respond to, testosterone. No receptor, no effect of testosterone. Occasionally there is a mutation in the androgen receptor (a large protein) that prevents it detecting testosterone. Males with this mutation may secrete testosterone but they will be unaware of its presence. They are born looking like females, and often not diagnosed until puberty (which does not happen: hence their referral to a doctor). They also think of themselves as female (that is, they have a female gender identity) and are usually attracted to males.

Bureau A may penalize any overdue irrespective of the value of the overdue, whereas Bureau B may consider the ratio of overdue (Rs 1,000) to the available limit (Rs 1 lakh) and therefore be less penalizing. It is clear that an overdue will have a negative effect on the credit scores irrespective of the scoring credit bureau. … [Read more...] about Why your credit score differs across bureaus
