“Falling in love was not really a choice; it just struck me.”
Helen Fisher, Why We Love: The Nature and Chemistry of Romantic Love

“Men don't need linguistic talent; they just need courage and words.”
Helen Fisher, Why We Love: The Nature and Chemistry of Romantic Love

“Personality is composed of two fundamentally different types of traits: those of 'character;' and those of 'temperament.' Your character traits stem from your experiences. Your childhood games; your family's interests and values; how people in your community express love and hate; what relatives and friends regard as courteous or perilous; how those around you worship; what they sing; when they laugh; how they make a living and relax: innumerable cultural forces build your unique set of character traits. The balance of your personality is your temperament, all the biologically based tendencies that contribute to your consistent patterns of feeling, thinking and behaving. As Spanish philosopher, Jose Ortega y Gasset, put it, 'I am, plus my circumstances.' Temperament is the 'I am,' the foundation of who you are.”
Helen Fisher
