Personality Compatibility Rating

How Different Personality Types Interact in Relationships

Our personality compatibility rating is based on the Jung/Myers-Briggs 16 personality types. This psychometric test has a long history of development dating back 100 years to Swiss psychiatrist Dr. Carl Jung and his book "Psychologische Typen" which translates to Psychological Types in English. This personality test was later updated by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katherine Briggs. The formal version of the 16 personality types test is known as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and is used primarily to help in organizational psychology.
The DateMetriX Dating App Evaluates Personality Compatibility algorithm, can be used to predict personality compatibility between single people and couples. It works by assigning maximum compatibility scores for similar personality types and less compatibility with personality types that clash.
