Authors@Google: Dario Nardi - Neuroscience of Personality

The other day I posted a short clip of Dr. Helen Fisher (at The Masculine Heart) talking about her theory of four personality types (based on serotonin, dopamine, estrogen, and testosterone) - in this Google talk, Dr. Dario Nardio of UCLA offers a different take based on brain regions and how they work to create personality.

Dario Nardi - Neuroscience of Personality
UCLA professor and author, Dario Nardi, has discovered that people of different personality types don't merely rely on different brain regions -- they use their brains in fundamentally different ways. Using colorful anecdotes and brain imagery, Dr. Nardi shares key insights from his lab. Among these insights: how people of different personalities can find and sustain a state of creative flow. This talk is suitable for a general audience including those who have passing familiarity with the Myers-Briggs types.
