As part of our Valentines special, we bring you a week of love related talks.

The Science of Partner Compatibility: Mate choice and relationship
success.

Immediate attraction is usually all too obvious but is it possible to
predict whether or not we will be happy with a particular partner in
the long-term? Pseudoscientific theories like astrology, palm reading,
numerology and biorhythms abound but without supporting
evidence. The popular idea that “opposites attract” is true in a very
limited context but by far the most valid principle is that of similarity
(“birds of a feather”).

People gravitate towards, and are happier with, those who are like themselves in an established set of important attributes, both physical and psychological. This finding led to the development of the Wilson-Cousins Compatibility Quotient, the only instrument which is scientific in the sense that it is published in peer-reviewed journals, as well as having application for practical purposes such as diagnosing potential problems in prenuptial counselling and locating a perfect partner through computer dating. The process by which this measure was devised will be described and an opportunity offered for participants to try it for themselves and their partners if they so wish.

Venue: Looking Glass, Hackney

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
