    Tests like these produce clues into our psychological makeup rather than point out statistics. If you were to chart everyone's results then you'd have statistics.

    The problem with tests like these is the answers are sacrificing - meaning you have to choose between two elements of psychology that you may very well have a lot of, thus producing skewed results.

    For example, one employer I worked for hired a consulting company to come in and test us, and determine from those results our ideal "job". My ideal job was "Dictator". This was because I scored off the charts in the "dominance" box, with a noticeable amount of self-motivation, with analytical and empathy barely registering.

    If you've followed any of my posts you can easily conclude I am very analytical. Why didn't I register in that category? Because psychologically, I am "slightly" more dominant than analytical. Because the questions are either-or, after 500 questions they concluded I am extremely dominant and not very analytical, whereas I am actually both - just slightly more dominant than analytical.

    But being identified as a "dictator" combined with the eight hour IQ test scared the pants off management and ultimately that worked to my favor because that's what the company was looking for - dominant managers with high IQ - people who get things done.

    Of course I knew that

    Interestingly, my girlfriend took the test and scored identically. That very well may be a factor in why our relationship is nothing short of awesome across the board - we speak the same language, er, languages, and to the same degree.

    Ok, you've shared your reasons on why analytical did not show, but what about empathy? hehe

    For the same reason - it's a quadrant-based face-off:

    D A

    E M

    ---

    The questions put each thing against the other:

    D vs A
    D vs M
    D vs E

    A vs E
    A vs M

    E vs M

    And yes, I am psychologically more dominant than I am analytical, empathetic or self-motivated, but that doesn't mean I don't have those qualities for I do - big time.

    It just doesn't graph/plot that way on defective tests like that one.

    Certainly we can all believe someone can be strong in more than one area. We'd have to be, otherwise most of us wouldn't make it through the day.

    Truckman, I agree with you on many points, but you still took the quiz! haha! Some people take these kind of tests while giving the answers they expect their partner or everyone else wants to hear. And yeah, there were some questions I was struggling with, but given a choice between a fancy gift and a romp in the hay...the latter always wins for me...hands down. LOL

    Somehow I missed the one about apology, but I already know my style and his. When I'm wrong I say so...and sometimes say it just to start the makeup process. He's pretty much the same.

    Sure, I took it.

    I happen to believe that either-or type tests aren't as accurate as other methods, but the results are at least interesting.

    For me at least, what's most interesting is my g/f scored exactly the same.

    OK, I took the Language of Apology quiz as well.....that "Making Restitution" thing makes me look like the warden...LOL Actually, it has to do with the desire to hear my partner or others ask what they can do to make it better....to avoid the same kind of hurt in the future or to repay for something ruined (as in the waiter who spills food all over me) I would expect to do the same....like when a girlfriend insisted on lending me a white crocheted dress she had never worn, and I spilled red wine on it during the date. It went to the dry cleaners the next morning. A simple, "Oops, I'm sorry!" would not have been acceptable. But that's just me. Just because I would LIKE others to take responsibility with action, it doesn't mean I can't forgive them otherwise. This is more about how I would behave than my expectations of others.

    Now that you know your love language, here’s some more information you might not have realized about it, and why certain behaviors affect you more than others.
    Your Love Language
    Physical Touch

    This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face–they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.
