The Helen Fisher test probably refers to the personality quiz based on Professor Fisher's research, which you can find available at Chemistry.com.
Before we explore the details, a bit of explanation about the broad picture of Dr. Fisher's work.
Helen Fisher,Ph.D., has been involved professionally in the her study for 30 years.
From her home page;
"Helen Fisher, PhD Biological Anthropologist, is a Research Professor and member of the Center for Human Evolution Studies in the Department of Anthropology, Rutgers University and Chief Scientific Advisor to the Internet dating site, Chemistry.com, a division of Match.com. She has conducted extensive research and written five books on the evolution and future of human sex, love, marriage, gender differences in the brain and how your personality type shapes who you are and who you love."
Why Him? Why Her? provides a new way to understand relationships, whether you’re searching for one or eager to strengthen the one you have. Beginning with a scientifically developed questionnaire to determine your prevailing personality type, Fisher tells you not only what type of person you might have chemistry with but how to find them, attract them, and keep them. Once you know the personality profile of the partner you’re with—or hope to find—you can use your knowledge of how your types match up to improve your love life."
So hopefully you have a sense that Professor Fisher brings something to this test other than her intuition or her own life experiences.
What I have found most intriguing about her work is the fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) or brains as they look at pictures of the beloved.
When I have a sense that someone has looked at a picture, there is somehow more validity and reliability to the conclusions drawn from the research.
Why would I or anyone contemplating taking the Chemistry.com test want reliability and validity?
I do not think there is any chance that the Helen Fisher Test will make romance boring.
The roller coaster that we have all learned to call love will still have to run its course, even if we are matched to a compatible personality type using the Chemistry.com tools.
There will still be bad poetry, long phone calls, coffee, disappointments, and rapturous embraces, all those things we have learned to associate with love.
What the Chemistry.com personality test that Dr. Fisher has derived does is help me find a steady flow of qualified applicants.
(And I should add that I have not taken Helen Fisher's test, because I am happily mated, and have a great partner, Julie).
I have eliminated some of the necessity for the meat market kind of experience, and gone straight to the good stuff, in terms of hormones and neurotransmitters.
And if I discover that there is not quite the chemistry I wanted, I can return to the drawing board, so to speak, and find new compatible profiles at Chemistry.com.
Here is to happy hormones, and a great deal of activation of your neurological pleasure centers.
Very early in my personal growth experience, a wise person taught me to use the phrase "gratitude is the attitude" when I was resentful or afraid and that phrase has helped me feel better tens of thousands of times.
