Why we Love, Why we Cheat
“What is to love?” asked Shakespeare.
“Anthropologist Helen Fisher takes on a tricky topic – love – and explains its evolution, its biochemical foundations and its social importance. She closes with a warning about the potential disaster inherent in antidepressant abuse.” source TedTalks
Helen Fisher did a fab job in talking about why do people cheat, such a wide subject in so much depth in such little time.
She talks about:
– What is Romantic Love?
– Where is love going?
– What are the main characteristics of Romantic Love?
She asked and answered several questions to her research subjects including:
- “What percentage of day and night do you think about this person?”
- “Would you die for him or her?”
