A lot of time we feel that sensational feeling called “Love”.We feel many different things and a lot of different chemical reactions take place during the “Love” phase.But have you ever thought of how many types of love could it be?
Maybe you haven’t thought anything about it.Let me tell you there are four types of love.Dr. Helen Fisher is a research professor of anthropology, who has studied human love for years.
She’s made some innovative discoveries about who people are as lovers and the love they seek as a result.There are four love types that she discovered.
Now many of you are thinking what are these types and under which love category we fall in?
So, here are the four types of love.Find out which one you are in!
Types of Love
Explorers are often associated with words like adventure, spontaneity, and fun.Because their chemical makeup predominantly dopamine, these people seek a playmate in their lover.
They see life as one big great adventure and want someone to join them in it.They are highly impulsive and curious.High dopamine levels influence explorer types to be motivated and goal-oriented.
Because they are linked to enthusiasm, energy, focus, and assertiveness.Explorers often tend to be attracted to other explorers.
Well, that sounds easy enough when two explorers come together and sparks ignite with two bold hearts on fire.If they don’t learn what patience is down the road, it is common for the two explorers to get in a head on collision.
This can result in messy breakups.
Builders are often associated with words like family, honesty, and loyalty.Because their chemical makeup is predominantly serotonin.These people seek a helpful lover.
Serotonin generates caution because it suppresses dopamine levels.Therefore, builders are relaxed, social, steady, and family and community oriented.
They are natural networkers and respect rules and authority in society.Builders are natural planners and like to schedule things ahead of time.They have an eye for detail in our linear in the way they do things in a step-by-step fashion.
Builders are often interested in other builders.These couples are often the high school sweethearts.We hear about them they are still married 60 years later.It sounds idealistic.That doesn’t mean builders doesn’t have any share of obstacles in their relationships.
For instance, because builders can be set in their rules, schedules, and traditions, two builders may argue over what they perceive as the right way of doing things.It is important for builders to keep an open mind.They should learn the value of flexibility of they want their relationships to grow and evolve.
Negotiators are often associated with the words like kindness, empathy, and sensitivity.Because their chemical makeup is predominantly estrogen, they seek a soulmate in their lover.
They are known to be the philosophers out of the love type group.This is because their high estrogen level provides for web-thinking.It helps them connect a vast array of ideas, concepts, and theories with one another as well as think naturally in an abstract manner.It provides them a vivid imagination.
As a result, this makes them habitual daydreamers.Negotiators are highly intuitive individuals relying on their gut feelings often.This is because they are natural feelers.
However, negotiators can experience problems in their relationships when they dwell on casual comments or criticisms.They tend to take them personally and can cause them to hold grudges for months or even years.
Negotiators are also sensitive to depression and can overdo it when they constantly feel lost.Always on the search for themselves, they can become overly self-absorbed, self-conscious, and self-critical.
Although these love types are likely to be attracted to certain types of lovers over others.The truth is that any love match can work so long as the two members are mature enough and willing to cooperate with one another and work with each other’s differences.
Directors are often associated with words like weird(or nerd), passion, and challenge.Just because their chemical makeup is predominantly testosterone, these people seek a mind mate in their lovers.
They are straightforward, tough minded, and determined.They value logic.Therefore, when making decisions they are not easily influenced by emotions.
They enjoy competition.They are pragmatic focused and daring.They are also highly ambitious and can be so independent that they can come off as lone wolf.
They have excellent spatial skills and musical and athletic ability too.Directors rarely ever go for other directors.Instead, they go for their opposite mates which are the negotiator.
This is because directors lack the verbal and people reading skills negotiators naturally possess that help to attract them to one another.Although the director and the negotiator typically make a good pairing, problems can still arise.
Directors, for instance, have workaholic tendencies and may neglect to spend quality time with negotiators and their family.
Despite the important research Dr. Helen Fisher conducted, we still know a little about love.It is still such a mysterious concept that cannot be fully explained even in the utmost scientific way.This is because after all, people end up falling in love with those with whom they least expect to end up with.
Ultimately, In relationships, it’s about constantly choosing your partner over and over again.What are your thoughts on love and the four love types?
