    Default Helen Fisher’s Personality Test

    We've previously had a thread with her test (with 56 questions): I'm creating one with a poll:
    Helen Fisher’s Personality Test

    Article on the subject: We have chemistry! – the role of four primary temperament dimensions in mate choice and partner compatibility (pdf file)

    Some have apparently attempted to correlate the four styles with Keirsey temperament types...I cannot say I agree with them:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_...onality_styles

    previous thread: http://www.the16types.info/vbulletin...nh-like-system (this is a helloquizzy\okcupid test, with the same questions I think)

    It gives me a couple different combinations on the other page but not one for my exact type like it does with some of the others. I have fewer options?

    I do get balanced brain on the right/left brain quizzes sometimes.


    Your score on the Explorer scale is 25 out of a possible 42, or 60%.

    Your score on the Builder scale is 22 out of a possible 42, or 52%.

    Your score on the Director scale is 27 out of a possible 42, or 64%.

    Your score on the Negotiator scale is 34 out of a possible 42, or 81%.


    Your Primary personality Type is Negotiator.


    NEGOTIATORS are philosophers. These women (and men) express traits linked with the estrogen system in the brain. These people see the big picture. They are imaginative and intuitive. They have superb language and people skills. They are also emotionally expressive, as well as agreeable, trusting and compassionate. Negotiators seek someone with whom they can make an intensely intimate, deeply meaningful, inspiring and spiritual connection. But Negotiators, like Directors, prefer to go out with one person at a time and to explore the depths of this potential partnership. They dislike wasting time on irrelevant, trivial or boring socializing. When they find “The One,” Negotiators are superb at generating and maintaining intimacy with this partner. They avoid conflicts with a mate, and make major personal adjustments to strengthen this cherished bond. They give thoughtful gifts, such as a treasured book or photograph. They share their most personal feelings. And they want their partner to share his or her feelings too.

    Negotiators are often attracted to their opposite, Directors.


    Your Secondary personality type is Director.

    DIRECTORS shoot for the stars. These men (and women) express traits linked with the testosterone system in the brain. They tend to excel at analytical and strategic thinking. They are also direct, decisive, exacting and tough minded. Directors are good at what scientists call “rule-based systems,” aptitudes such as higher math, mechanics, computers, engineering and/or music. And they are often competitive, as well as skeptical and emotionally contained. Directors approach dating and relationships the same way they approach their other interests, by rationally analyzing their hopes, needs and intentions. Foremost they seek a partner who shares their goals, as well as someone who is eager to exchange ideas, build theories and talk about science, philosophy, history or whatever interests them. To balance out their forthright style and tendency to make decisions quickly, Directors tend to gravitate to partners who weigh alternatives, listen actively, handle conflicts deftly and have other well-honed social skills. Because they analyze their own emotions, as well as hide them, Directors tend to seek mates who are emotionally expressive. Because they have difficulty dealing with “controlling” people, they tend to be attracted to those who are flexible, even indecisive. Thus they often gravitate to Negotiators who have the empathy and emotional complexity to handle their forceful personalities.


    Among Directors, opposites attract, like Negotiators.


    You are not likely to express all of the traits associated with these two brain systems. But you express more of these traits than those linked with the other two brain systems. Hence these are your primary and secondary types.




    You: Director/Explorer
    with:
    Partner: Negotiator/Director


    How your primary types work together:


    The Director and Negotiator naturally complement one another. Although very different, your thinking meshes. Both of you dislike wasting time on superficial conversations; instead you both enjoy talking about the arts, philosophy, literature, science and/or politics. Moreover, your focus is likely to be deep and narrow; while the Negotiator tends to see all the angles, the big picture. So you can surprise and delight each other with your knowledge and ideas. Moreover, both of you are mentally flexible, inventive and theoretical—giving you a real sense of intellectual and emotional unity.


    You also have an exciting blend of social talents. You tend to be forthright, concise and decisive; while the Negotiator is more socially nuanced, compassionate and better at putting others at ease with their verbal and people skills. You will be drawn to the Negotiator’s natural warmth, enthusiasm and tender-heartedness. And the Negotiator will admire your sense of independence, self-discipline, frankness and goal-oriented ability to make decisions. Together you are a great team for making difficult decisions.


    How your secondary types work together:


    You have some other powerful things in common. Both Explorers and Directors are theoretical, inventive and original, and love playing with ideas. So when you find topics of mutual interest, your conversations will be exciting. The Director is likely to admire your curiosity, creativity and breadth of knowledge, while you will enjoy the Director’s analytical, informed mind.


    Both types also tend to be highly independent, irreverent and daring, so each will appreciate these qualities in the other. Because you are also both deeply engaged in your own projects, neither is likely to be overly possessive of the other’s time either. This trait in the Director is likely to be very comforting to a freedom-loving Explorer like you.

    Look out for:

    As a Director, you are not likely to be very introspective; you enjoy looking out, not in. So the ruminating, self-examining Negotiator might push you to be emotionally expressive and self-revealing—things outside your comfort zone. You may also find the Negotiator to be indecisive and impractical, traits you don’t always respect. But this is a powerful union. The Director needs the verbal talents, people skills and compassion of the Negotiator; and the Negotiator needs the decisive, forthright, tough-minded, independent spirit of the Director. It’s a natural, exciting and formidable match.


    You: Negotiator/Director
    with
    Partner: Explorer/Negotiator

    How your primary types work together:


    The Negotiator and Explorer both like playing with ideas and/or taking off on intellectual or physical adventures together. Both are imaginative, mentally flexible, curious, theoretical and eager to pursue wide-ranging conversations and experiences. So you are both likely to feel a real sense of intellectual and emotional unity as you explore the universe together. You will also appreciate the Explorer’s energetic and spontaneous approach to life; and the Explorer will admire your compassion, intuition and win-win attitude.


    You are also playful and romantic, traits the Explorer will particularly enjoy. The Explorer is not comfortable showing his/her deeper feelings; so they can be intrigued by your emotional expression and transparency. The Explorer will also appreciate how trusting and patient you can be. And you will be attracted to the Explorer’s sense of adventure and irreverent originality.


    How your secondary types work together:


    The Director and Negotiator naturally complement one another. Although very different, your thinking meshes. Both of you dislike wasting time on superficial chat; instead you seek substantive conversations about the arts, philosophy, literature, science and/or politics. Moreover, your focus is likely to be deeper; while the Negotiator tends to see all the angles, the big picture. So you can surprise and delight each other with your knowledge and opinions.


    You also have an exciting blend of social talents. You tend to be forthright, concise and decisive; while the Negotiator is more socially nuanced, and better at putting others at ease with their verbal and people skills. You will be drawn to the Negotiator’s natural warmth and enthusiasm. And the Negotiator will admire your independence, self-discipline and ability to make decisions. Together you are a great team for making difficult decisions.


    Look out for:
    As a Negotiator, you will want to make a deeply intimate connection with your partner, something an Explorer may find intrusive at times—leaving you feeling evaded while he/she feels invaded. Moreover, Explorers tend to forget quarrels quickly, whereas you are naturally inclined to remember the problems and more easily hold a grudge. But your mutual playfulness, adaptability and adventurous times together will enable both of you to overlook the stumbling blocks to build an exciting and deeply rewarding partnership.

    Your score on the Explorer scale is 23 out of a possible high score of 48, or 48%
    Your score on the Builder scale is 32 out of a possible 48, or 67%.
    Your score on the Director scale is 31 out of a possible 48, or 65%.
    Your score on the Negotiator scale is 35 out of a possible 48, or 73%.

    I got a tie on Builder and Director, and based on the decider, ended up as Builder for my secondary type.

    Your Primary personality Type is Negotiator.

    NEGOTIATORS are philosophers. These women (and men) express traits linked with the estrogen system in the brain. These people see the big picture. They are imaginative and intuitive. They have superb language and people skills. They are also emotionally expressive, as well as agreeable, trusting and compassionate. Negotiators seek someone with whom they can make an intensely intimate, deeply meaningful, inspiring and spiritual connection. But Negotiators, like Directors, prefer to go out with one person at a time and to explore the depths of this potential partnership. They dislike wasting time on irrelevant, trivial or boring socializing. When they find “The One,” Negotiators are superb at generating and maintaining intimacy with this partner. They avoid conflicts with a mate, and make major personal adjustments to strengthen this cherished bond. They give thoughtful gifts, such as a treasured book or photograph. They share their most personal feelings. And they want their partner to share his or her feelings too.

    Negotiators are often attracted to their opposite, Directors.

    Your Secondary personality type is Builder.

    BUILDERS are pillars of society. Most likely highly expressive of the serotonin system in the brain, they are traditional and conventional, as well as cautious, calm and often social. These men and women like to build networks; community and family are important to them. They make good managers because they are orderly, conscientious, thorough and loyal. And they respect rules and like schedules. Builders seek a stable and predictable team player, someone who shares their fidelity to family and tradition. They take courtship seriously, too. Builders don’t choose a partner impulsively. They believe in good manners, old-fashioned courtesy, punctuality and well-arranged schedules. Builders tend to think concretely; they are literal; they like and trust facts. So on a date, a Builder is likely to engage in tangible conversations - about food, travel, sports, the weather, TV programs and/or movies. They are often good at “small talk,” short conversations on concrete topics. They can be very modest when discussing their achievements. And they tend to take the opinions of their friends and relatives seriously.

    Your score on the Explorer scale is 31 out of a possible 42, or 74%.
    Your score on the Builder scale is 15 out of a possible 42, or 36%.
    Your score on the Director scale is 17 out of a possible 42, or 40%.
    Your score on the Negotiator scale is 27 out of a possible 42, or 64%.


    Your Primary personality type is Explorer.

    EXPLORERS are born free. They express more of the traits linked with the dopamine system in the brain. These men and women love novelty; they are willing to take risks to experience adventures of the mind and/or body. They are optimistic, energetic, spontaneous, mentally flexible, often generous and highly curious and creative. And they often seek a partner who will go adventuring with them: another Explorer. Because they are friendly and enthusiastic, have little interest in rules or schedules, and have no desire to control others they can make a date feel comfortable quickly. Explorers are also good at listening and talking. They are inquisitive, so they are likely to ask you about yourself in order to engage you and satisfy their curiosity. But they tend to play the field and seek as much freedom and variety as possible—until they are ready to settle down.

    Among Explorers, similarity attracts, so another Explorer is a good match.

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."
