About this product
- DescriptionWhat is your emotional fingerprint? Why are some people so quick to recover from setbacks? Why are some so attuned to others that they seem psychic? Why are some people always up and others always down? In his thirty-year quest to answer these questions, pioneering neuroscientist Richard J. Davidson discovered that each of us has an Emotional Style, composed of Resilience, Outlook, Social Intuition, Self-Awareness, Sensitivity to Context, and Attention. Where we fall on these six continuums determines our own emotional fingerprint. Sharing Dr. Davidson's fascinating case histories and experiments, <i>The Emotional Life of Your Brain</i> offers a new model for treating conditions like autism and depression as it empowers us all to better understand ourselves--and live more meaningful lives.
