PAPER The common neural bases between sexual desire and love
Dr. Stephanie Ortigue Cacioppo from University of Geneva had published the paper "The common neural bases between sexual desire and love: A multilevel kernel density fMRI analysis"
BrainDesire uses that research for Dating and Relationships
Please remember personality = temperament + character
Personality is composed of two basic types of traits:
traits that an individual acquires, dimensions of character;
traits with biological underpinnings, dimensions of temperament (Cloninger 1987).
Latest Research in Theories of Romantic Relationships Development shows: compatibility is all about a high level on personality* similarity** between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment.
*Although no actual fresh paper uses the 16PF normative personality test (they mostly use different versions of the normative Big5 personality test instead) and linear or logistic multivariate regression equations to calculate similarity, they clearly show a connection between personality similarity and marital happiness / dyadic success (stability and satisfaction) for some persons.
**Similarity is a word that has different meanings for different persons or companies, it exactly depends on how mathematically is defined.
Also there is a similarity trilogy between genetic, mate choice and personality based recommender systems.
