The Myers-Briggs Personality type: A guide to dating prospects
In the 21st century, there are all kinds of attempts people make to find their match. They try apps such as Tinder and Bumble, or they may try other online methods of meeting people or even options such as speed dating.
Unfortunately, the fundamental issue with these tools is that there simply isn’t enough time to really get to know a person and your compatibility with them. However, there is one tried and tested method of dating and compatibility that goes all the way back. It’s called the Myers-Briggs type test, and it divides people into 16 different types of personalities, detailing things like traits, interests, behaviour, compatibility with others, etc.
Here are sixteen different personality types. Take a look at which one you think you are… and which personality type interests you!

Lovable:Manager (70%), Confidant (60%), Helper (55%), Auditor (55%), Deviser (50%), Intellectual (40%)
Romantic:Defender (60%), Entertainer (60%), Contributor (55%), Educator (50%), Advocate (40%)
Sexual:Director (75%), Designer (65%), Chameleon (60%), Showman (50%), Innovator (40%)
The test is long, but often a good judge of character. While it’s true that any individual can have a mix of traits, the sheer variety of personalities helps categorize each individual more correctly, and then helps you pare down whether or not you’re interested.
So instead of looking at zodiac signs or swiping blindly right on Tinder, try the Myers-Briggs test out on interesting dating prospects. (You can find any number of free variants on the internet which you and your partner can take.)
