A groundbreaking book about how your personality type determines who you love Why do you fall in love with one person rather than another? In this fascinating and informative book, Helen Fisher, one of the world’s leading experts on romantic love, unlocks the hidden code of desire and attachment. Each of us, it turns out, primarily expresses one of four broad personality types—Explorer, Builder, Director, or Negotiator—and each of these types is governed by different chemical systems in the brain. Driven by this biology, we are attracted to partners who both mirror and complement our own personality type. Until now the search for love has been blind, but Fisher pulls back the curtain and reveals how we unconsciously go about finding the right match. Drawing on her unique study of 40,000 men and women, she explores each personality type in detail and shows you how to identify your own type. Then she explains why some types match up well, whereas others are problematic. (Note to Explorers: be prepared for a wild ride when you hitch your star to a fellow Explorer!) Ultimately, Fisher’s investigation into the complex nature of romance and attachment leads to astonishing new insights into the essence of dating, love, and marriage. Based on entirely new research—including a detailed questionnaire completed by five million people in thirty-three countries—Why Him? Why Her? will change your understanding of why you love him (or her) and help you use nature’s chemistry to find and keep your life partner.

    " This is very good book to read to help understand and accept other personalities not only to find a perfect match but to build better relationships with co-workers, friends, and family. "

    " This book appears on bookshelves as a "relationship & dating" book, but the relationship-based content is light. This book is really about the four basic personality types and what makes each tick. I can see where readers looking to heal a relationship are underwhelmed, but if you're interested in basic psychology and brain chemistry, this book is great. "

    " This book was fascinating as a study into the 4 basic personality types (Builder, Negotiator, Explorer, Director) and that each is driven by a particular brain chemical (Serotonin, Estrogen, Dopamnine, Testosterone, respectively. There is a personality test in chapter 2, and by taking it, you will see your primary and secondary type. It discusses that our behaviors are truly 'hard wired' based on our brain chemical activities. While the book is geared towards single people looking for a mate, we (Dave and I) both found it interesting as applied to ourselves, and within platonic relationships, such as work relationships. We have found that it's fun to point out what behaviors we are displaying at a given moment, if only to break the tension. We've said "Ok, but stop being such a builder...sheesh!" It's made us aware of each others styles, and allowed us to see why we each are the way we are, so we can work around our traits better. We also make a game of trying to guess what personality type people are, even strangers. At a mere 222 pages, this was a quick, fascinating read! "

    " I am sorry, but I love my fiance because of things other than his personality type. I think people read way too much into these things, and while some of it may be true, I certainly wouldn't base my relationships on it. I couldn't imagine saying to Daniel (my fiance) that I couldn't be with him because we don't have compatible personality types. Sadly, I think people would! I definitely would not, and I don't find anything in this book particularly noteworthy or original. "
