Why are some people so quick to recover from a setback while others wallow in despair? Why are some so highly attuned to others that they seem psychic, while others put both feet in it over and over again? Why are some people always up and others always down? In this hotly anticipated book, award-winning, pioneering neuroscientist Richard J. Davidson answers these questions by offering an entirely new model of our emotions – their origins, their power, and their malleability. Davidson has discovered that each of us is composed of six basic “Emotional Styles”: Resilience, Outlook, Social Intuition, Self-Awareness, Sensitivity to Context, and Attention. Our own personal emotional fingerprint results from where on the continuum of each style we fall. He explains the patterns of brain activity that underlie each style in order to give us a new model of the emotional brain, one that will even go so far as to affect the way we treat conditions like autism and depression. And, finally, he provides strategies we can use to determine our own Emotional Style and to change our own brains and emotions – if that is what we want to do. Written with bestselling author Sharon Begley, this original and exciting book gives us a new and useful way to look at ourselves, develop a sense of well-being, and live more meaningful lives.

    " A little over my head, but his research was cool. The author claims that there are six different emotional styles that are wired into the chemical process of our brains. If you're into Myers-Briggs or enneagrams, you will find something interesting in this. "

    " Amazing book, has a lot to offer all readers from scientists to the lay person. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Amy Beth | 1/18/2014

    " This book was a little disappointing for me. I think it is more geared toward neuro scientists than actual lay people. Very technical information covered that I could not grasp, or have an interest in. "

    " Convinced me that it's possible to change your emotions. Kind of helped me to understand nature vs. nurture. "
