    Interesting talk. I wasn't totally watching it with intent, but it's good to know that this isn't just hot air, and they have some scientific support of what they're studying. That said, she's an anthropologist and this isn't quite her field, so I'm a slight bit dubious for that reason. I also think the system is too formulaic for what it's trying to answer, but I get why they made it the way they did. It's for a dating site, it's got to be easy for the consumer to digest.

    And I'm a Builder/Director .

    All that talk of love.... I feel I'll.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    To my surprise I find I have a dominant estrogen/oxytocin brain. And I am like Charles Darwin and Bill Clinton.

    Who knew?

    I do like her research - and this is probably a better system than MBTI to follow when it comes to dating. I know I tend to find myself identifying director/explorers almost instinctively - no matter their mbti type

    So what do I do knowing I have an estrogen/oxytocin dominent brain?

    The first thing is to relax. I know I make many connections fast and I know many can't keep up with me so I have repressed this. I think I will be able to enjoy it more. Perhaps in dance and poetry.

    So who am I attracted to? I have been attracted to directors, less so to builders and explorers. But what about fellow negotiators?

    I could crowd source and ask you what do think someone with a dominent estrogen/oxytocin brain could do or should do?

    With a dominent estrogen/oxytocin brain, what do I like?

    I think I most like a free flowing imagination. However it is vital this is balanced by good reality contact. It's as though they are in a dance with each other, one needs the other as a partner, for imagination without reality lacks substance, and reality without imagination lacks magic.
