Why Her? Finding Real Love by Understanding Your Personality Type,” discusses human personality and why we fall in love with one person rather than another.

Fisher serves as chief scientific advisor to the dating site Chemistry.com, a division of Match.com, which she has used to develop a scientific database of mate choice and romantic behavior.  She is a frequent guest on television shows such as 20/20 and The View.
