The dating community online is filled with different trends that come and go. One of the most popular trends in the recent past has to be compatibility tests you find online. These tests ask numerous questions that you and your partner answer to determine whether the two of you are compatible for one another. So are the tests you find online actually true? Can they predict whether you and your partner can last? The simple answer to that would be, no. While compatibility tests can help determine personalities and interests matching, it does it to an extent. However, that doesn’t mean that these tests are completely useless.
Helps determine personality
Most compatibility tests ask questions that help you determine whether the personality of your partner and self is compatible. The questions are structured in such a way that it helps you determine each other’s personality and whether they can co-exist. This can be both beneficial and useless at the same time. If the test is taken with full honesty then it can be beneficial to the relationship as it will give a glimpse of whether the two personalities are compatible. The thing is when it comes to compatibility personality isn’t the only factor to consider. Also, most of these tests aren’t as detailed as they should be to truly analyze whether the two personalities are compatible. Also, most people can easily lie their way to make it seem like they are more compatible. When you know the tendency of your partner, you can answer the questions so that the answers and interests match. Which would show that the two are compatible.
So it depends on how honestly the test is answered. The test isn’t completely useless and can provide little insight on compatibility.
Degrees of compatibility
Most tests you find online will either tell you that you and your partner are compatible or not. However, when it comes to compatibility there are different degrees, it isn’t clear cut yes or no. Don’t get us wrong, there are times when you know right away if you are compatible with someone or not but not always. Obviously, when you select a partner, you see something in them that makes you think you are compatible to a certain degree and it isn’t a clear-cut no. Compatibility tests aren’t in depth that they can tell you to what degree the two of you are compatible. Which doesn’t truly help if you really want to test compatibility.
You can think of compatibility test more like a game, you and your partner can play. It’s a good time pass but if you actually expect the tests to truly tell you if you and your partner are compatible than we would recommend you try a different approach.
