Helen Fisher, PhD Biological Anthropologist, is Senior Research Fellow at The Kinsey Institute and Chief Science Advisor to Match.com. She uses brain scanning (fMRI) to study the neural systems associated with romantic love, attachment, rejection, love addiction and long-term partnership happiness. She has written six books on lust, romance and attachment now sold in 25 countries. Among them are: WHY WE LOVE; WHY HIM? WHY HER? and ANATOMY OF LOVE (2ND ed). Fisher also studies courtship trends in the digital age, using a representative sample of 50,000 single Americans. She concludes that we may be heading toward decades of relative family stability, due to the current international trend she coined: “slow love.”
Fisher is also a pioneer in the biology of human personality and the neurochemistry of team-building, innovation and leadership. Her questionnaire on the biology of personality, the Fisher Temperament Inventory, has now been taken by over 15 million people in 40 countries. It is the only extant personality questionnaire derived directly from brain physiology and validated by two fMRI brain scanning studies. Using these data, she has co-founded of a business consulting firm, NeuroColor.
Fisher appears regularly on national and international TV, radio, print and podcasts. She has spoken, among many places, at the World Economic Forum (Davos), the international meeting of the G-20, and The Economist. And she is a TED All-Star with over 12 million views of her TED talks. Fisher was chosen in 2015 by Business Insider as one of “The Fifteen Most Amazing Women in Science.”
