About the Speaker:
Dr. Helen Fisher is the most referenced scholar in the field of love and relationships in the world today. A Senior Research Fellow at The Kinsey Institute and anthropologist at Rutgers University, she is a pioneer in the biology of human personality and the neurochemistry of love and leadership. Named a TED All-Star and one of “the 15 most amazing women in science today” by Business Insider, Dr. Fisher has given the world a new way to look at relationships—both personal and professional.
As Chief Scientific Advisor for Match.com, Dr. Fisher developed The Fisher Temperament Inventory—the first and only personality questionnaire built from and validated by neuroscience—which has been taken by more than 14 million people in 40 countries (see note below). Her discovery of the four basic biological styles of thinking and behaving — Explorer, Builder, Director, and Negotiator — represents the biggest leap in personality tools in the last 100 years.
Dr. Fisher has written five bestsellers on the neuroscience behind human social behavior, including the 1994 classic Anatomy of Love (re-issued in 2016). She has addressed audiences at Fortune, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, The World Economic Forum, SXSW, The Economist’s Ideas Economy, and the G-20. Her three TED Talks have been viewed by more than 12 million people worldwide.
