What does it mean to have chemistry? Helen Fisher dives into the subject of love, hormones and how the two correlate. She breaks brain systems down into four categories: those who express dopamine are more impulsive and creative thinkers; serotonin is for the stable, traditional thinkers; testosterone drives more direct and emotionally inhibited thinkers; and estrogen/oxytocin are aligned with nurturing negotiators. Which are you?

NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube’s comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We’d love to see this change, YouTube.) So for now, if you’d like to comment on this talk, please use ., . or G+ to discuss with your networks.
