This relationship quiz is part of a psychometrics experiment. Psychometrics is the science of understanding, measuring and predicting differences and similarities between people. According to this relationship style test, “your personality plays a big part in shaping your romantic preferences and psychologists have come up with a “syntax of love” to classify people on the basis of their romantic relationship style.”
I took this quiz and was somewhat surprised to have mixed results.
Here are my 5 BIG Personality traits:
You are balanced, somewhat emotional, and adjusted. When you are worried or irritated it tends to be for a good reason. You can be anxious about things that matter and your worries usually have a purpose (e.g., they help you prevent problems). At times, however, you find it hard to suppress your negative feelings.
You are ambiverted, which means neither introverted nor extraverted. You are variable and adaptable like most people. Sometimes you are happier on your own than with others, whereas on other occasions you really enjoy being with friends and meeting new people. You are comfortable in social situations and are confident interacting with others but prefer to avoid being the centre of attention.
You are down-to-earth, realistic and pragmatic. Novelty isn’t your thing and you prefer to stick to what you have already tried and like (whether it’s food, people, films or whatever). It may be hard to persuade you to change your views or opinions about things. You think principles are important and have a firm set of values that you follow and expect others to follow, too. You probably don’t think of yourself as artistic or particularly creative.
You are relatively agreeable, warm and tender-hearted. You prefer to have friendly relationships with people but if something is not right you will let them know. When necessary, you will engage in arguments and tell people what you think but you feel it is better to avoid conflicts if possible. Although you like honesty, you are willing to hide your views if they are too negative and may hurt others.
You are proactive, responsible, and self-motivated. People know you are reliable and dependable. You strive for excellence and are driven by status, goals and target. You are generally focused on your goals and willing to work hard to attain them. You are well-organised and work efficiently. You are methodical and prefer to always plan ahead. You don’t like leaving things till the last minute and are self-critical if you do not achieve your goals. You prefer to avoid risks. You have a reputation both for your work ethic and for being conscientious.
And my relationship style?
You have a Companionate relationship style
Your relationship is based on mature mutual understanding and long-term commitment. You enjoy making plans for the future and are also spiritually attached to your partner, engaging in deep conversations and discussions. (I deleted the later part, of course 😀 )
Consider this as a valentine day quiz. 😛 What are your test results like? How true were they?
