Use our open questions to present a unique snapshot of yourself, and tell others in detail what you are looking for. If you strongly value your academic side, for instance, tell people why this is important to you, and what you expect in return.

Other members want to read something interesting about you, so convey what makes you special. Just as you would like to read interesting responses from other members, write expressively and memorably in return.

Thoughtful and be honest


In our questionnaire, we ask you more than 20 questions, the personality test should be properly considered; complete it when you are relaxed. While some are (yes/no) questions, others use a scale to judge relative importance and require reflection of what you are like.

When you have completed the test, you will be presented with your personality profile. It’s based on the Five Factor Model theory of personality traits, a psychological model based on research by Robert McCrae and Paul Costa. It will describe your levels of openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism.

Honesty is always the best policy. The questionnaire is one of the means by which marriage.lk introduces you to other users. Giving what may appear to be the ‘right’ answer may serve to dilute your qualities and portray you as somebody quite general; what makes you different is usually what makes you appealing. Thinking honestly is therefore recommended, both to distinguish yourself and allow us to introduce you to members who really suit you.

Personality Test Breakdown


McCrae and his colleagues have also found that the big five traits are also remarkably universal. One study that looked at people from more than 50 different cultures found that the five dimensions could be accurately used to describe personality.

Based on this research, many psychologists now believe that the five personality dimensions are not only universal; they also have biological origins. Psychology David Buss has proposed that an evolutionary explanation for these five core personality traits, suggesting that these personality traits represent the most important qualities that shape our social landscape.

1. Openness:


This trait features characteristics such as imagination and insight, and those high in this trait also tend to have a broad range of interests. People who are high in this trait tend to be more adventurous and creative. People low in this trait are often much more traditional and may struggle with abstract thinking.
It is important to note that each of the five personality factors represents a range between two extremes.
For example, extraversion represents a continuum between extreme extraversion and extreme introversion. In the real world, most people lie somewhere in between the two polar ends of each dimension.

2. Conscientiousness:


Standard features of this dimension include high levels of thoughtfulness, with good impulse control and goal-directed behaviours. Those high on conscientiousness tend to be organized and mindful of details.

3. Extraversion:


Extraversion is characterized by excitability, sociability, talkativeness, assertiveness and high amounts of emotional expressiveness.
People who are high in extroversion are outgoing and tend to gain energy in social situations. People who are low in extroversion (or introverted) tend to be more reserved and have to expend energy in social settings.

4. Agreeableness::


This personality dimension includes attributes such as trust, altruism, kindness, affection and other Prosocial behaviours. People who are high in agreeableness tend to be more cooperative while those low in this trait tend to be more competitive and even manipulative.

5. Neuroticism:


Neuroticism is a trait characterized by sadness, moodiness, and emotional instability. Individuals who are high in this trait tend to experience mood swings, anxiety, moodiness, irritability and sadness. Those low in this trait tend to be more stable and emotionally resilient.
