Here are a couple of brief videos, one talking about the model for relationships and connecting that Helen Fisher, Ph.D. has uncovered, based on her study of fMRI of brains in love.
Is it possible to eliminate some of the uncertainty in the search for relationship and get right to the good stuff, dopamine and all that?
The numbers look good, but you will have to try the quiz.
This is what ABC news has to say about the Fisher model.
"There are more than 800 online dating sites, and about 25 percent of Americans have visited one. (Are we lonely, or do we miss that wonderful brain concoction of love?)
Fisher said the problem with other online dating sites was that they only matched people according to traits they had in common, such as social class, ethnic background and education level.
Chemistry.com also considers hormonal differences that Fisher said drew people together and helped them produce healthier offspring.
(How is that chemistry delivered? Smell).
But the site says it's the more scientific method for finding true love on the Internet.
Fisher says that there are four personality types -- explorer, builder, negotiator and director -- and that each of them is associated with a chemical in the body. Fisher said explorers were curious, thrill-seeking and optimistic; builders were loyal, calm and good managers; negotiators were demanding, independent and competitive.
According to Fisher, people are often attracted to people outside of their own personality types, but she's not ruling out any possible matches.
"I think that every one of these combinations is a perfectly good kind of combination," Fisher said. "It's just going to result in different types of marriages."
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.
