Helen Fisher, PhD
Dr. Helen Fisher, PhD. is a biological anthropologist, a member of the Center for Human Evolutionary Studies in the Department of Anthropology, Rutgers University, a Senior Research Fellow at The Kinsey Institute, Indiana University, and Chief Scientific Advisor to Match.com. She has written six internationally best-selling books and many articles on the brain science of human social behavior. She is currently studying the biological basis of personality and is a pioneer in examining the neurochemistry of leadership and innovation. Using data collected from her questionnaire, the Fisher Temperament Inventory, taking by 14 million people in 40 countries, as well as her knowledge of genetics, brain architecture (using fMRI) and neurochemistry, Helen discusses four broad styles of thinking and behaving associated with specific brain systems. She gives detailed data on how to recognize and influence each temperament style and how individuals of each temperament dimension are predisposed to think, work, buy, innovate and lead.
Helen is the co-founder of the consulting company, NEUROCOLOR, that has used her understanding of brain science to develop a new personality tool to create better outcomes for individuals, teams and organizations. It has been called “a disruptive technology” and “the next Myers-Briggs.” For further information, see: neurocolor.com or the March 2017 issue of the Harvard Business Review.
