Anatomy of love : the natural history of monogamy, adultery, and divorce by Helen E Fisher( Book )

71 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fisher traces the evolution of human courtship, marriage, adultery, divorce, re-marriage, and the sexual emotions back to their origins on the grasslands of Africa four million years ago. Women, men, and power, the genesis of teenage, the origin of human conscience, gender differences in the brain, and many other aspects of human sexuality take on new meaning as she follows human kind from caves in Africa through the agricultural revolution and on into contemporary Western social life. In the last chapter, Fisher looks at several modern trends and concludes that many are not new. Instead, these family patterns came across the centuries, up from primitives who wandered out of Africa millennia ago

Why him? why her? : finding real love by understanding your personality type by Helen E Fisher( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Drawing on her unique study of 40,000 men and women, Fisher explores each personality type in detail, shows you how to identify your own type, and explains why some types match up well, whereas others are problematic.--From publisher description

Emotions by Robert E Griswold( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When asked to describe birth from a baby's perspective, a group of women talk about fear, elation, and other feelings, while their male counterparts summon only physical sensations. This program explores the divergent emotional tendencies of men and women, throwing gender differences into bold relief through spontaneous theatrical exercises and expert commentary. Featuring leading scientists and researchers, including anthropologist Helen Fisher, sociolinguist Deborah Tannen, psychiatrist Harrison Pope, neurologist Ruben Gur, and psychologists David Geary, Vikki Stark, and Daniel Perusse, the program juxtaposes scholarly commentary from these experts with compelling group-dynamic experiments that measure male and female strengths, weaknesses, prejudices, and potential. While confirming that expression of and reaction to emotion varies according to sex, the program also demonstrates that the male psyche values emotion no less than the female as suggested by a collaborative storytelling session in which men craft the more evocative tale
