Evolutionary Astro-Biology, Hormones & Myers Briggs

Filed in Uncategorized

“Helen Fisher!” Ellen exclaims, pointing at her.

 

Fisher, a women’s cult figure and an anthropologist, has long argued that falling in love—and falling out of love—is part of our evolutionary biology and that humans are programmed not for lifelong monogamy, but for serial monogamy. (In stretches of four years, to be exact, approximately the time it takes to get one kid safely through infancy.)

 

Why Him? Why Her? explains the hormonal forces that trigger humans to be romantically attracted to some people and not to others (a phenomenon also documented in the animal world). Fisher posits that each of us gets dosed in the womb with different levels of hormones that impel us toward one of four basic personality types:

 

The Explorer—the libidinous, creative adventurer who acts “on the spur of the moment.” Operative neurochemical: dopamine.

The Builder—the much calmer person who has “traditional values.” The Builder also “would rather have loyal friends than interesting friends,” enjoys routines, and places a high priority on taking care of his or her possessions. Operative neurotransmitter: serotonin.

The Director—the “analytical and logical” thinker who enjoys a good argument. The Director wants to discover all the features of his or her new camera or computer. Operative hormone: testosterone.

The Negotiator—the touchy-feely communicator who imagines “both wonderful and horrible things happening” to him- or herself. Operative hormone: estrogen, then oxytocin.

FROM THE ATLANTIC & yes, it is a really cool article & all BUT i always get annoyed when these Helen Fisher categories are trounced out like they original. They are just like the elements Fire, Earth, Air & Water or Jung’s Types or Myers Briggs or the Medieval temperaments…Surely. I mean, exchange Aries-Leo-Sagg for the Explorer Archetype, the Earth Signs of Taurus, Virgo & Cap for the Builder,  Gemini-Aqua-Libra for the Director & the Water Signs of Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer for the Negotiator.

BUT i love the hormonal theory…And I love how the male Fire Signs would HATE to hear it was the Air Signs apparently running on testosterone, not them…Apparently baked potatoes produce an immense amount of Serotonin. Also, does this mean that if you are low in one particular element chart-wise or – as Jung et al have it – you have a less-expressed type…that you would benefit from supplementing with whatever hormonal neurotransmitter?

I did Myers-Brigg once at a health farm. They said I was an intuitive extrovert with low dependability. But you cannot always judge peeps with salt-caffeine-sauvignon blanc withdrawal.  The questionnaire had things like: When you arrive at a party, do you (a) dance naked on the table or (b)  Weep in the bathroom?

Oxytocin is – I think – the chocolate, orgasm and childbirth hormone?

Yes,very true the taliban really are a sad ol bunch of party poopers, take themselves way , way too seriously also its beceause there is no surf in Afghanistan and their mummy never loved them and they had to read to Koran all day and werent allowed to play , plus they have small willies.

or perhaps they are all estrogen men, and are merely expressing an internal struggle with their feminine halves?

Allah Akbar…we are a loose lot.
Taliban ought to rethink their ideas of what is fun.

I as a Libertine,prefer to affirm Life not Death by Moral Strangulation, eh Shell?
THEY suffer small dick syndrome, the Taliban. Their ideaology is a result of sexual
repression & guilt, only they don’t know it, poor sods.
Shoot em up with some Oxycodin & Fluroxitine.

Scorps, thanks for book recommendations, appreciated,as best i have are from others
advice or the books just jumping out at me.
So an attractive person is attractive to ALL peeps & places. That makes sense.

ALL boobs are the Best Boobs.I think Balls should be elevated to the same adoration.
Both need lightness of touch, respect, gentleness & big OUCH if they are hurt.
Always think of my boobs as my balls.
When they’re plumped (naturally of course), i’m pumped:-O.

If you meant to me, no worries. I really do believe that all boobs and balls are fantastic as well. Human beings are miraculous, and lust I think gives us moments where we really see how divine others are. Balls are the gateway to the universe!!! I would think the Taliban would ESPECIALLY be on my team re that one!

Hey Medusa, Thanks so much for your blog, it makes me a little lighter everyday. FYI I have a great book called “Neo-Liberal Genetics: The Myths and Tales of Evolutionary Psychology” by Susan McKinnon. She very eruditely and convincingly explains the story of evolutionary psychology has more to do with neo-liberal economics than sound physical anthropology. The pleistocene era made our brains all “plastic” apparently, and all the evolutionary psychology about genes dictating behaviour is total crapola. The EP stuff says that one type of physical person is the most genetically attractive to EVERYONE. Which is both depresses and pisses… Read more »

“not for lifelong monogamy, but for serial monogamy. (In stretches of four years, to be exact, approximately the time it takes to get one kid safely through infancy.)”

Guess this means that by the time one gets the seven year itch, one could be three years overdue already…Some people just stay for the kids. Like my parents ended up telling me they did because back when, one did not just leave the family.

Sheez I spend the day sleeping and then the discussion goes all over the place.lol

I had to really think of what hormone leads the pack in my inner wiring and ended up with dopamine and serotonin with an estrogen chaser…which matches my Leo Sun Taurus Rising and Scorp moon pretty well.

Once I hang up my creative adventure hat, I do have an honest and uncomplicated love of the spud…it balances out me failing around thinking best case worst case scenarios…when I’m not actually leaping into the mire again.

Hormones, not just for teenagers.

how’s your voice LL… are you feeling better?

I still can’t decide about my hormones. Definitely testosterone then it’s a toss up between serotonin (nothing calm about me at all but i do like routine – 4 planets in Virgo) and dopamine.

Every time i get blood test done the doctor informs me my levels of testosterone are slightly higher than usual. I just nod “i know… i know” 😆

Well I’m glad I didn’t start an all out brawl. It was particularly Gem Dark Moon flippant of me to bring my ‘research’ to this forum, but – just like Prowln here, to get back on topic – there was an element of genuine philosophical analysis intended. We all know the size doesn’t count, and not necessarily even the skills of the owner – its whether or not he is comfortable and at peace with the thing. ‘Cos unfortunately, when a fella is not so ‘in-touch’ with the old fella, he tends to take it out on those around him.… Read more »

Well Damons, good for you! Feedback? Of course one must see one’s features as a blessing. For me, size would not be a deal breaker in relation to a long term partner.

Myer-Briggs is based on Jungian archetypes, so while it is not based in empirically-tested science, it is not surprising that it makes sense on another level…

I read some research ages ago that surveyed the two other primate groups closest to humans (chimps and gorillas) to determine the primary factors surrounding monogamy/polygamy. They theorised that the constant variable to measure was penis size! Bonobo chimps have the largest penis to body size ratio and are the most polygamous. Bonobo society is matriarchal and they are significantly less aggressive than other chimp groups. Gorillas on the other hand are strongly patriarchal, with each tribe being led by a dominant alpha male. They are exclusively monogomous and the males have the smallest penis to body size ratio. Humans… Read more »

No mention of brain size nat … but seems size does count in other areas? 😉

Had a bit of a look-see regarding the gorillas though and found info that supports the monogamist idea and others that says they go for the harem thing – one male, many females. So not sure about that one. But so far does seem to suggest that monogamy or exclusivity to one male setup is male driven, not female.

“Exclusivity To One Male Setup Is Male Driven…” OK – this is amazing, as just happened to me. And I was wondering, what actually happened… lol.

So we used to meet, stay up late, talk, sometimes kiss, and then usually parted in order not to give in to waking lust. Now, I decided after months of this sexually not satisfying “love affair”, to propose sexual polygamy… Read more »

“Could it be we crave those life / love experiences that will best supplement the hormone we are naturally most deficient in??”

Possibly, but from a biological perspective it would probably have little to do with individual needs and more to do with producing offspring with a good biochemical mix – a survival of the species thing.
