This Is Your Brain In Love By Dr. Earl Henslin

Posted on: January 29, 2011

Everyone knows there is some brain related chemical activity which causes people to fall(?) in love. But no one knows for sure what really happens in brain when someone is in love. On the flip side, we have this clichéd question – love is in the mind, or in the brain?

This book (This is your brain in love By Dr. Earl Henslin) tries to answer this question with amazing illustrations of brain activity, and clear psychological explanations on various kinds of lovers. Dr. Henslin splits lovers into five categories and this book even includes a test which can help us identify our love style.

According to Dr. Henslin, there are five imbalanced lover types. They are:

  1. The Scattered Lover (high in energy, low in attention or absentmindedness!)
  2. The OverFocused Lover (Can’t take his / her brain off a good / bad thing)
  3. The Blue Mood Lover (Gloomy outlook, always)
  4. The Agitated Lover (Anger and other related emotions)
  5. The Anxious Lover (Always on lookout of anything that may hurt them)

This book discusses each one of these types in detail and explains how one can recognize their type, as well as their mate’s type. Usually it may even be a combination of multiple types, which is the most likely case in majority of people.

As Dr. Henslin is also a very famous marriage and family therapist, this book takes nuggets from his experience and makes a very interesting reading. Recommended for anyone who wants to know what happens when they feel love, and for keeping a love life / marriage successful!
