Helen Fisher’s Personality Quiz has now been taken by over 14 million people in 40 countries. Helen created it to test the degree to which you express four broad styles of thinking and behaving, each associated with one of four basic brain systems: the dopamine, serotonin, testosterone and estrogen systems. We call these four types the:
- Explorer: those who primarily express the traits linked with the dopamine system.
- Builder: those who primarily express the traits linked with the serotonin system.
- Director: those who primarily express the traits linked with the testosterone system.
- Negotiator: those who primarily express the traits linked with the estrogen system.
We are all a combination of these four trait constellations, but we express some more than others. In fact, it is not unusual to score equally on two (or sometimes three) of these temperament dimensions. Moreover, each of us has a unique combination of overall traits, a unique “personality signature.”

“How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?—Albert Einstein
Einstein was correct—science will never clinically sterilize the wonderment of love (first or otherwise). But I think he’d also agree that it’s a mistake to confuse increased understanding with diminished meaning. No matter what we learn about love, it will continue to be one of the most meaningful and powerful forces on the planet, as it should be.
