Would like to have the written book instead of the audiobook so I could review the perspective on different combinations of people who I meet in my life.
Intriguing . Nice read . Informative
Gave me so much insight on my personality and the personality of my significant other
This was interesting, but at times, I thought Fisher beat the four personality archetypes to death.
Anyone. Fisher is very smart, but she has a tendency to slur her words, particular Rs and Ss. Also, her voice sounds like she's on the brink of or recovering from Laryngitis.
Yes. It was interesting to learn about the biological basis for personality types. I did not know that before this book. And I could see how each personality has a complementary type that we gravitate toward.
I don't think Fisher is "wrong" per se about keys to a committed, attached relationship, but given her own admission about how many she's had, sometimes her credibility is strained.
Yes I have
Who I am attracted to and what type is attracted to me. Good info

This is one of the most fascinating books I heard in a awhile. I am well read in psychology, brain science and human behavior and I really enjoyed the anthropology point of view of the author. I bought this book after hearing her speech on Ted Talks. Excellent presentation, I couldn't stop listening and was disappointed when it was over.
More actual research, less vague pseudo science info.
Not worth a listen. Summary of 4 times of personalities loosely based on some research that people of this type have more of this chemical in their brain.
the 4 types make up you. But the types have all over lapping and counter active traits assigned to them because there is no real research. So the author pulls from some sources that suggest something hinting at brain chemistry effecting how well you get along with other people with types of brain chemistry... Nice idea but she sums it up in 4 chemicals which is insulting, and very vague.
The book is more about how the author selling books and call it research based. Very disappointing. I wish i didn't purchase this or other reviews would have the common sense to rate this low.
This is very educational. I did not exactly get what I thought I was going to. It is interesting to learn the background of Match.com. I discovered that I am one of the people that seems to be well balance in all areas. So, I do not feel like I know who to better to look or select a partner.
I enjoyed the science in understanding behavioral and personality traits that we may be born with. I found the Nature vs Nurture compelling. Who would have thought you could be born with a predisposition for even political views?! Worth more study for sure. As to how we choose our mates and either stay in or leave relationships, well we parted ways in some areas and agreed in others. Overall a very interesting book. I will revisit often I am sure. Reading people is a large part of my work, and this study was helpful.
Ranks pretty well with that genre of books i.e. human personalities and social psychology
I was confused as I related to everything that the author talk about without having a specific type.
cant really say
Being able to profile people and understand their dominant personality traits out of the four (Builder, Explorer, Negotiator, or Director). Personally, I was found myself in the four traits which was confusing.
I think we humans are a complicated bunch of emotions and motives. The book is an interesting viewpoint on personality types and compatibility.
Helen Fisher does a great job of keeping you interested.
I enjoyed the real life people she gave to explain the four personalities and the tests seemed to be right on. After listening, I was quick to get our family members to take the test. There were plenty of aha moments after finding the personalities in our household. Fun.
