Better World Books Podcast: Dr. Helen Fisher

home_whwh_book_smWhy do you fall in love with one person rather than another? In her new book Dr. Helen Fisher identifies four biological personality styles generated by brain chemistry; then using her study of 28,000 people, she shows who is naturally drawn to whom.

Dr. Fisher is the chief scientific advisor for CHEMISTRY.COM and her personality type test has already been taken by millions!  She has been seen on 20/20, The Early Show on CBS and even The Colbert Report, so I was especially excited that she was able to take the time to sit down with me.

Once you read this book (and listen to the podcast!) you’ll never look at people (or more importantly, yourself) the same way.

Do you know what it means if your ring finger is longer than your pointer finger?  How ’bout who should pay for dinner and why?  (Scientifically speaking, of course).  helen4Did you ever stop to think you might be living in the wrong place to meet your soul mate?   Wonder what Oprah’s personality type is?  How ’bout Barack Obama?

The answers to these questions and more are right in this podcast (which was really one of the most fun interviews I’ve done).  And of course even more answers and the quiz itself are in the book!

  1. This interview was really fun! I really liked how Dr. Fisher called Dana a kindred spirit. It showed throughout the interview, and this book is definitely going on my list.
