EP 24 - Changes for Women. Changes for Men? with Helen Fisher

Men Are Talking / Good Will Toward Men

Helen Fisher, a noted biological anthropologist, was one of the twenty-two women Jack interviewed in 1993 for his book Good Will Toward Men (St. Martin’s Press, 1994). In that interview, the idea of patriarchy was the main topic. In this new conversation, Helen spoke of the significance of women's achievement of jobs and careers. Jack asked about the need for something similarly revolutionary, liberating, and fulfilling for men. They didn’t agree, but there is never any question about Helen’s Good Will Toward Men. contact info: helenfisher.com STAY TUNED TO MALE-FRIENDLY MEDIA: • Stay up-to-date on Jack’s podcasts as well as his guest appearances on podcasts in other important niches: malefriendlymedia.com/stay-tuned www.malefriendlymedia.com

E19: Dr. Helen Fisher, The Science Behind Romantic Love

My Fame Explained

Dr. Helen Fisher, 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 the sex drive, 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: Why We Love; Why Him, Why Her?; and Anatomy of Love (2nd Ed). She also studies courtship trends in the digital age, using a representative sample of 50,000 single Americans to examine hooking up, friends with benefits, video chatting and why today’s dating patterns may lead to decades of relative family stability—due to a trend she calls “slow love.” Using data collected from her biologically-based questionnaire, the Fisher Temperament Inventory, now taken by 15+ million people in 40 countries, she is also studying the biological basis of personality and is a pioneer in examining the neurochemistry of team-building, innovation and leadership to explain how people of different biological styles of thinking are predisposed to work, buy, innovate and lead. Fisher appears regularly on national and international TV, radio, print and podcasts. She is a TED All-Star with over 12 million views of her TED talks; a recipient of the American Anthropological Association’s Distinguished Service Award for her work at presenting anthropological data to the public; and was chosen in 2015 by Business Insider as one of “The Fifteen Most Amazing Women in Science.” Follow Dr. Helen Fisher on her website at HelenFisher.com Follow the My Fame Explained podcast on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
