      HI Julienne,

      > Are the "Negotiators" the estrogen driven, and the "Explorers" - dopamine?

      Yes. Although I also include oxytocin with estrogen, and norepinephrine
      with dopamine, only because when I look at the data, these dual systems code
      for related traits. For example, estrogen has long been associated with
      nurturing in many animal species, and oxytocin is now associated with
      feelings of trust and attachment, traits that are often related to
      nurturing. And oxytocin is produced by estrogen. There's a lot to all this
      and I am afraid I can't write it out here. But...
      > Is that right? And do you have a moment to explain these a little?

      I really go into this in my recent book, WHY HIM? WHY HER? I also have just
      submitted an academic paper which really explains these neural systems, but
      I will need to send that to you after it is accepted. I apologize.

      But thanks for your interest. Helen.
