Once you answer all the questions (you: left column, your partner: right column) a table with results will appear. It will tell you how much you scored for every personality type. Your main personality type is where you scored the highest. Similarly, your partner’s personality type is where he or she scored the highest. Once you know your personality type, you can use compatibility information found below the table. You can answer the questions for your partner if you believe you know the answer.
Your are on a flight from Tokyo to New York with one stop in Hong Kong. In Hong Kong you are informed about eight hour delay. Your reaction:
|While on intellectual level you realize this must be a major inconvenience, you still feel excited about this unexpected turn of events. You have eight hours to explore new places! One thing is for sure: you are not going to spend eight hours in the airport!|
|Delay? Oh no! Your kids will be crying. Your mom will be worried. Oh well. Before you know it, you find yourself socializing with an elderly couple.|
|You are really annoyed. You’ll be late to work. You have commitments. You have things to do. To take an advantage of this extra time, you open your laptop and work. Or head to a bookstore to find something good to read — something practical related to your career will be the best.|
|You sit down in a chair and remain there for eight hours. Good thing, you are never bored.|
What’s your learning style?
|You memorize quickly and forget quickly. You are interested in many different subjects but never get deeply involved with any given subject.|
|You grasp things fast and are able to see connections between seemingly unrelated subjects. You like to classify and generalize information and are able to read between the lines.|
|You know that mastering any subject or skill requires patience and dedication. While you have many interests, you prefer to attack them one by one. Your focus is narrow and deep.|
|You are a slow learner but once you grasp something, you never lose it.|
Someone has hurt you. Your reaction:
|Simply shake it off. Perhaps give yourself a break and do something fun.|
|Struggle to hold the tears. Look for support of a friend or a family member to complain and cry on their shoulder.|
|Argue. Simply DESTROY the abuser. He should know who he is dealing with!|
|You need to think it over. You won’t be taking any fast decisions about your relationship.|
What’s in your drawer at work?
|Mess! I am afraid to open it!|
|My drawer is neat and clean. There are work related materials and some personal things, like family photos or things that remind me about people I love. I like to take a break and look at them while at work.|
|Just work related stuff. I don’t waste time rearranging things in my drawer. As long as I can find what I need, it’s good enough.|
|My drawer is super organized. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING is out of place there.|
You have some money to spend. What do you choose to do?
|Spend it on fun activities and/or luxury items.|
|Buy gifts for people you love.|
|Invest it in your business or in your education.|
|Despite you have enough money saved in your bank account, you decide to save even more.|
How often do you change your mind?
|I am extremely spontaneous and change my mind very often.|
|I am very emotional, and this causes me to change my mind often.|
|I don’t change my mind easily but can take fast decisions when I have to.|
|I don’t change my mind easily. I need time to think things over before taking a decision.|
|You are bold, even reckless at times|
|You tend to worry a lot.|
|You’ve got “nerves of steel” but you don’t take foolish risks.|
|You are very cautious but not too fearful.|
Your results will be displayed below.
Type I + Type I
These two share many interests. Both crave for adventure and special experiences, which makes them a perfect match for each other. Both are optimists and like to look at positive side of things, which means they are unlikely to fight about small stuff.
On the negative side, however, both like to flirt and may flirt with other people. Another issue is that both are prone to addiction and tend to reinforce bad habits in each other.
Type I + Type II
While these two personalities have little in common, they have complementary strengths that compensate for their differences. Type I and Type II are naturally attracted to each other and end up together quite often. Type I loves openness and loyalty of Type II, while Type II finds Type I incredibly attractive and sexy.
Problems may arise due to the fact that Type I needs a lot of privacy and independence, while Type II requires connection and intimacy.
Type I + Type III
These two types are almost polar opposites of each other and rarely end up together. However this doesn’t mean they don’t have potential for a strong and lasting relationship. Both types are highly independent and self-sufficient and will give each other plenty of personal space. Type III enjoys spontaneity of Type I, and Type I is impressed by analytical mind of Type III.
On the negative side of things, Type III may sometimes see Type I as foolish and lazy, while Type I may decide that Type III is just a bore.
Type I + Type IV
These two could not be more different and still, they end up together quite often. Strangely enough, this seemingly unlikely union of impulsive and adventurous Type I and calm and cautious Type IV works just fine. Their differences can compensate for each other, which makes for a very balanced and effective couple.
Problems may arise because of their different attitudes towards money. Type I is a fun loving spender while Type IV is a saver. Type IV may regard his / her partner as irresponsible, while Type I may start seeing Type IV as “a ball and a chain”.
Type II + Type II
Romantic, irrational and imaginative Type II looks for an ideal mate and, if two people belonging to this type form a union, they will make sure to fulfill each other’s dreams.
On the negative side of things, Type II people tend to avoid conflicts, leaving many issues unresolved. Instead of confronting their partners and trying to resolve the problem, they will keep ruminating or gossiping about their spouses behind their backs.
Type II + Type III
Opposites attract and these two are a good example. There is a natural attraction at work between Type II and Type III. They actually admire their differences; Type II will love independence and an analytical mind of Type III, and Type III will love warmth and loyalty of Type II.
However, this union has some problem areas too. For example, Type III doesn’t confess their love very often, but for Type II it is something essential. Type II may decide that connection is lost and start overreacting. Type III dislikes drama and may become even more unavailable.
Type II + Type IV
While there is no initial natural attraction here, Type II and Type IV still get involved with each other; and when that happens, the relationship is very stable. Both look for a lasting relationship, both have great social skills, both are loyal. Type II and Type IV are particularly effective as parents and raise happy children.
Type III + Type III
Savvy and analytical Type III looks for an intelligent partner, someone who they could talk to about their work and interests, someone who can appreciate what they are doing. Type III + Type III union satisfies this need; they practically thrill each other.
Problems may arise due to their natural competitiveness when they begin to compete with each other. Another issue is that both tend to get absorbed by work, leaving very little time for each other.
Type III + Type IV
Type III and Type IV typically dislike each other because they have a very different approach to life and different priorities. However, they still may have a relationship due to circumstances or maybe because timing is just right. While they are very different, they share one thing in common: Both want to maintain a stable family life. If they learn to respect their differences, things may work out for them too.
Type IV + Type IV
Type IV is most compatible with its own type. Type IV men are naturally attracted to Type IV women and vice-versa. This couple is most likely to be happy and is least likely to divorce. They have similar values; and even if they have some differences, their desire to have a stable family will help them to work out a solution. If they ever fight at all, that would be about small trivial things like housekeeping – hardly a threat to their marriage!
