So I saw a preview for a 20/20 episode about “The Science of Love” and I knew I had to watch it. Scientists have figured out, chemically, what happens to your brain when you fall in love. They’ve determined, based on personality type, who we fall in love with and why. Pretty interesting! The TV show mentioned an online quiz, which of course I had to check out! I did have to sign up for a username/password, so that part was slightly annoying, but I think it was worth it.
Turns out I am a negotiator/explorer, and I am attracted to director/explorers.
I found this quiz very accurate, so I want you to take it! Tell me who you are – and how accurate do you find it? (Come on, even if you’re with someone – this quiz is for non-single people too …)
You are also socially savvy. You are good at both talking and listening. And you generally read people’s faces, body postures and tone of voice accurately, so you often intuitively understand what people want and need.
You are also highly compassionate. You care deeply about others. So you are inclined to make personal sacrifices to be a supportive friend and colleague. And you are idealistic and altruistic; you like to work to improve the world.
And you have an adventurous side; you enjoy new ideas and novel experiences and you want to share these with an enthusiastic partner. But you are particularly fond of people who are direct, decisive, focused and tough-minded, people who complement your more flexible, agreeable and affable style.
- Sees the big picture
- Verbal skills
- Novelty seeking
- Impulsive and spontaneous
- Because you can see so many angles to an issue or decision, you can be indecisive.
- Your need to please can turn to placating and your trusting nature can make you gullible.
- When you feel betrayed you can be unforgiving and hold a grudge too long.
