Why do we need a personality test?
Our personality test is a key part of your success with EliteSingles. The questions we have developed will look into your qualities and allow us to introduce you to like-minded singles. By determining your personal attributes, a completed personality test will help present your character to other members and introduce you to compatible matches.
What makes the EliteSingles personality test special?
Divided into ten sections, the personality test comprehensively evaluates you and is central to our matchmaking process. It’s based on the Five Factor Model theory of personality traits, a psychological model based on research by Robert McCrae and Paul Costa. By widely questioning your personality, it calculates your levels of openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. By basing our personality test in psychological compatibility, our smart profiling system is able to deliver between 3-7 compatible matches a day, in line with your individual personality type preferences, leaving you free to browse through the best options and focus on dating.

How to make the most of the personality test assessment
So, now you know how the test will determine your personality ‘type,’ what should you consider for long-term success? What choices can help you find the right person?
i. Contemplate and be honest
With more than 200 questions, the personality test should be properly considered; complete it when you are relaxed. While some are polar (yes/no) questions, others use a scale to judge relative importance and require personal reflection of what you are really like. Honesty is always the best strategy. The questionnaire is one of the means by which EliteSingles introduces you to other users. Giving what may appear to be the ‘right’ answer may serve to dilute your qualities and portray you as somebody quite generic; what makes you different is usually what makes you attractive. Thinking honestly is therefore recommended, both to distinguish yourself and allow us to introduce you to members who really suit you.

ii. Distinguish yourself
The personality test includes both multiple choice and open-response questions, such as ‘what are you passionate about?’, and will respond to how strongly you agree or disagree on a subject. It will also work to determine the focus you place on intellectual ability, professional ambition, and relationship goals. Use our open questions to present a unique snapshot of yourself as a person, and tell others in detail what you are looking for. If you strongly value your academic side, for instance, tell people why this is important to you, and what you expect in return.
As research by Norton (2007) has established, profiles with more information have far more success in attracting highly compatible people, so try to present yourself as fully as possible.1 Other members want to read something interesting about you, so convey what makes you special. Just as you would like to read interesting responses from other members, write expressively and memorably in return.
