Relationship Style Quiz And Personality Traits

heartcupidThis 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:

Neuroticism

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.

Extraversion

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.

Openness

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.

Agreeableness

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.

Conscientiousness

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?

    You are quite cold with and uninterested in your partner. You think of yourself rather than your partner and you show little passion. You are not very committed to the relationship and don’t seem to find your partner very exciting. There is also a general lack of intimacy, meaning you do not share intimate things with your partner, preferring to keep them to yourself. You may be wondering what you get out of the relationship, and so do we!

    LOL, that happened probably because I had to pass most of the questions as they were partner related and I don’t have one right now so I can I say? But seriously, cold and uninterested sounds too harsh. 😛

    poonam, i don’t know why but after reading the description of your relationship style i thought you’d make a good politician’s wife. haha!

    ish: hey, i’m not attached either, but i can pretend to be. 😛

    Hi poonam,

    This is a case of viral theft. sulz stole the quiz from my blog. I asked her to return and share her results on my but she preferred to post it to her own blog and send me a link. Then both you and another one of her readers stole it too. It’s been fun following the infection, so to speak. 😀

    As for those who aren’t involved in real life romantic/physical relationships and who have never have been, I suppose that the best they could do was fantasize and speculate so how accurate can those results truly be, eh?

    Have a Happy Valentine’s Day one and all.

    Cheers!

    @leostanley: Thanks, had a look at your newbie blog. Welcome to blogosphere! 🙂

    @ish: This quiz depends on your answers. As you say, answers were not correct and so result can not be correct. As sulz says, try with what you want in your partner.

    @sulz: I love discussing politics but hardly interested in being his wife.

    And I will never make good one. There is a deviation from results when it comes to personality traits. I can be one real prick with my bluntness (I would say candid :P) I guess, my real life friends, would vouch for this. None of them has commented yet though.

    @brightfeather: Ahah..word is viral advertising and not viral theft. 😛 Actually our blogs are like journals, so want to put the results there for eternity. Ok, till blog lasts.

    I noticed we had similarity in some personality traits. My results were not completely accurate, what about yours?

    May you all have a great Valentine’s day ahead! 🙂

    So madam has already started celebrating Valentine’s Day huh? 😉 Good.

    Here is my result

    You have a “total relationship” with your partner that comprises all aspects of love. Your relationship is very passionate and romantic, you have a great deal of intimacy and are able to share every feeling and idea with your partner, and, what’s more, you are genuinely committed to this relationship in the long run. This is the kind of relationship that most people would only dream of having. You must be very happy… Congratulations!

  7. 8 ish February 5, 2008 at 10:08 am

    You feel a very close bond with your partner and find your partner very attractive. Your relationship is made of passion as well as intimacy. You find your partner sexually attractive and are clearly a romantic type. Moreover, your relationship is also based on sharing important personal thoughts and feelings with your partner, to whom you can disclose pretty much anything. However, commitment does not seem to matter that much. There are no joint plans for the future and the present is much more important.

    There you go, total opposite of last time. This time I imagined how a relationship would be. 😛

    Thank you poonam for making a good day at the end my big 5 personal traits as under

    AND YOUR BIG 5 PERSONALITY TRAITS ARE
    Neuroticism

    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.
    Extraversion

    You are extraverted, energetic, dominant, confident and outgoing. You enjoy being the centre of attention and are very talkative. You like meeting new people and talking about yourself. You are generally high-spirited and find it difficult to be alone. You tend to be fun-loving and talkative. You also have a shorter attention span than most people and are quite impulsive. You are a morning rather than evening-person.
    Openness

    You are relatively open to new experiences but not that desperate for novelty. You are interested in finding out about the world and other people but there are things you would never do because they defy your values and principles. You enjoy some forms of art and like some unconventional things but are generally represented by the mainstream. You are not too conservative but not too liberal either.
    Agreeableness

    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.
    Conscientiousness

    You are responsible enough and try to meet important deadlines without leaving things for the last minute. You are usually dependable and reliable. Your work and your career are important but you think there is more to life than work. You try to be organised and plan ahead but it is not the end of the world if you don’t manage. Your work ethic is average. You are about as conscientious as the average person is.

    @Ruhi: yes, this is mushy month. It has several landmarks for me. 🙂

    @dinsan: wow! perfect 🙂

    @ish: mmm…better..but truly, does commitment not matter to you.

    And now that you are here, I must tell you I had a nightmare this morning that was partly because of your blog. This morning I dreamt I was giving physics exam for class 12 and I hadn’t studied the subject myself for last few months. And I remembered nothing. So inside, I was scared shit while giving exam as I had a reputation to top. When I woke up in morning I was actually relieved that I am not in class 12 anymore.

    Why I blame you partly? Because your post about chemistry remained in my subconscious. Apart from you, I know nobody who is appearing for class 12 this time. Other reason for such a nightmare can be that I have been known to take tests without studying at school but then I had gift of memory. Not anymore. 😦

    @praneshachar: Our first traits are similar. 🙂

    hey good blog every day

  11. 12 ish February 6, 2008 at 5:13 am

    Commitment does matter to me, a lot but I think I answered one question wrong in there and didn’t answer another one so they presumed I’m not interested in it. Frankly, some questions in there are such that they can be answered only when you are in a relationship because when you imagine you are in one, you imagine it to be perfect and all. But when you are actually in one, only then will you know what it’s like. That’s why I think my result can’t be completely accurate.

    Jesus H. Christ, I’ve started giving you nightmares now? Wow, that’s brilliant! Kya mast style hai mera bhi, paper mere chal rahe hain aur nightmares doosre logon ko aa rahe hain. Main to aajkal ghode gadhe sab bech kar sota hoon lol. Chalo, nevermind. Agli waali post mein I’ll talk about something other than studies so that you don’t get nightmares aiight?

    That reminds me that even I used to have such nightmares till 10th. But they used to come in the holidays after the exams. I would have dreams that I was having a Hindi/Punjabi exam and I wasn’t knowing a thing. I would wake up sweating only to realize that it was a dream and that exams are already over lol.

    Good to know I’m the only 12ther you know who’s giving the boards. Makes me feel kinda unique and stuff. 😉

  12. 14 Poonam Sharma February 8, 2008 at 8:15 am

    @ish: yeah, it must be because of incorrect answer. I made my friends read your comment. Everyone was laughing at me. Exam tum de rahe ho, nightmare mujhe!

    And you are certainly unique amongst all the people I know. 🙂

    @xylene: You are very welcome!

  13. 15 Anshul February 9, 2008 at 7:35 am

    🙂 Pretty much on Dot.

    :mrgreen:
