Congratulations! You’ve taken your first Instant Chemistry compatibility test. Trying to digest what everything means? We’ve written a guide for you to better understand what your test results say about you and your relationship. Let’s jump in. Your Results Your personal results will give you two pieces of genetic information and a psychological assessment. As a couple, you will both receive a compatibility score too.
Curious about our psychological compatibility test? Here I explain the history of the test and how it was put together. You are looking for a solid relationship and you are considering using a compatible match application. Understandably, you have some questions. The first question is, how does a psychologist choose what factors to assess to make informed predictions? In the development of tests, professional judgment guides the decision regarding which forms of evidence are most necessary and feasible. The basis for the decision is the intended use of the test.
We’ve discussed the strategy behind our psychology assessment, now, we have all four relationship factors broken down to help you understand our test even better! This way, you feel knowledgeable about our test kit and go into it fully prepared, no surprises. Remember, these four relationship factors have been tested in correlation to marital satisfaction and long term relationship success. This part of our compatibility test is a questionnaire built to help you and your partner better understand your psychological compatibility. 1. Social Behavior The social interaction pattern assesses whether you seek out togetherness or prefer solitude, whether you prefer to be in the background or foreground of social interaction. In essence, are you most comfortable among people, or do you prefer your own company?
It’s that time of year again. That time when we rack our brains to come up with the perfect gift for friends and family. Some of us dread it, some of us even loathe it, but yet some of us absolutely love it. There are people who might even say that gifting is a science. While scientists have yet to find the ‘gifting gene’, they have uncovered a connection between our genes and generosity. Two key hormones that play a key role in our social behavior are vasopressin and oxytocin, also sometimes referred to as the ‘love drug’. In controlled lab settings, volunteers given doses of oxytocin were found to be more sociable.
When we think about marriage, a lot of us think about falling madly in love and living the rest of our life in bliss. Or some of us might churn at the idea believing that marriage is the worst thing for a relationship. But there is another way to see marriage. Because marriage is supposed to be about love many do not consider that there is a large economic benefit to marriage. Indeed, it can be argued that marriage is so common simply because it’s beneficial economically and has nothing to do with love. To put it simply, marriage offers many benefits to both the man and woman that are hard to ignore. These benefits include: lowered cost of living; a support system for difficult or unforeseen situations; and sharing the workload.
