With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, this is the time to start planning that perfect celebration with your partner. A good relationship is made up of a lot of day-to-day routine sprinkled with meaningful moments, and February 14th provides a great opportunity to strengthen your bond with your partner by doing something really special for them.
Ever wonder which Enneagram type pairings are the most common? How about which types are happiest single, which types are serial monogamists, and which types are most likely to pencil “LTR” into their long-term goals? So did we.
In January 2021, Truity surveyed over 88,000 users to find out more about the Enneagram types and their relationships, and the results are in. Here’s some of the most compelling data we discovered about all the types.
When ENFJs and INFPs get together, they frequently create relationships that are both harmonious and long-lasting. As Intuitive Feelers (NF), they’re equally dedicated to creating meaningful connections that enrich both parties. They tend to be on the same wavelength, and the bonds they forge often transcend the need for explanation or interpretation.
No one enjoys feeling vulnerable, and romantic relationships tend to be where we are exposed the most. That’s the place with the highest stakes; where even a small shift in dynamics can leave you feeling insecure and off balance. While we’re all different, how we navigate our relationships is closely intertwined with our Myers and Briggs personality preferences. Check out your personality type below to see what you look like in a relationship—at your very best and your absolute worst.
As quintessential jacks-of-all-trades, ENTP personalities like me rely on our sharp perception to move through life with ease. Our ability to read others on the fly empowers us to dive into new situations, roles, and communities with fearless enthusiasm—where others may be cautious by default. With our trademark vision and spontaneity, who knows how high our tolerance for unpredictability might be?
Everyone has different opinions on talking about personality type on a first date. Among my friends, the results are mixed. There are some who say you should absolutely talk about it, it’s unavoidable. For others, it is an absolute no-go area!
In my opinion, the answer is yes … and no. Personality type can be a great tool for learning more about your date and getting the conversation flowing. But it’s also a good idea to handle the subject with care. Personality type can be a very personal topic so it needs to be approached in an open-minded way.
Analyzing and understanding one’s personality with Jungian psychology can be of great help to you on a personal or professional level. It can be an even more valuable asset on a love and relationship level.
After people learn their Enneagram type, the next question they invariably ask is “What types go well together?” That’s a whole different topic, but today we’ll explore the four Enneagram types who are seen together the most frequently.
Based on a 457-couple survey, these four pairs stood out with the highest statistical frequency. This isn’t to say these are the happiest couples, but rather these types pair up more often than the rest.
Have you ever found yourself at one of those awkward family dinners where one of your aunts tries to set you up with someone? Been there. Truth is, people give a lot of importance to relationship status. We often talk about finding “the one” or refer to our partners as our “better half,” and there’s nothing like being single at a family dinner to make you feel like the odd one out.
But is the idea of finding love and fulfillment outside of yourself ever healthy? And where do we draw the line between love and neediness?
The personality typing system developed by Isabel Briggs Myers is the most popular personality assessment in the world. It’s no wonder then that it is used in all kinds of interpersonal contexts, including dating. In fact, if you are a fan of the Briggs Myers system, chances are you have already done this yourself!
