I'm rangebaned from 4chin so i might as well post it here for you guys.
Shapeshifting beings actually work in quite a different manner than those of us who lack abilities as drastic alteration of one’s appearance by the use of sheer will.
A shapeshifter's mind works with the pretense that no form he is or will ever take is actually his real form, for this reason, a shapeshifter might identify with all genders, no genders or a single-gender; The way in which the identification occurs is solely dependant on the shapeshifter as the ability to radically alter one’s body also means the radical alteration of hormonal balance within such body as well as bodily functions.(1)
A study of neuronal pathways upon a living shapeshifter subject has shown that gazing into a mirror, picture, or drawing of self will activate neural pathways hitherto associated with entertainment as opposed to usual pathways associated with the identification of the self. (2)
This phenomenon can be explained by Hooman’s study of shapeshifting pregnancy particularities(3) which proves that despite the common belief that a shapeshifter's natural form is actually his or her "real" form, it is actually a form assigned by his or her mother at birth. Despite this known fact within the equestrian scientific community, attempts to enforce traits on a shapeshifter's natural form have proven futile hitherto.(4)
New physiological studies have suggested that previously stated particularities of a shapeshifter are a direct causer of certain common personality traits such as extroversion, dissociation, carelessness, and irresponsibility. (5) Further studies are being developed regarding the evolutionary advantage of such personality traits.
