That’s right—talking about I, I, I is the key to a successful relationship, says sharp-eyed psychologist Dr. Rich Slatcher.  How does he know?  Because he analyzes instant messages to uncover the hidden language of love.  Dr. Slatcher puts Faith and Mario’s relationship to the linguistic test—and you and your beloved can do the same! 

Take the Language Style Matching Test.

Great show and I loved this segment. Rich, you have a voice made for radio. Very insightful. And I really enjoyed Faith and Mario's chemistry.

Unfortunately, we can't hear your station in PA (Philadelphia suburbs). We do listen to WHYY all the time. Today's program sounds interesting. Can we listen to it somehow???
