Jung Marriage Test
|Compatibility of Partners in a Couple|
The right choice of a life and romance partner has always been of primary importance for a human being.
Sometimes we find our soulmate at a glance, whereas sometimes a sufficiently lengthy dating precedes
the minute for making the final choice.
The dynamics of a family life (i.e., birth and separation of children, aging, swings in the state of well-being,
changes in educational status) alters the matrimonial relationships which,
in time, encounters conflicts and distancing on both sides.
The quality of the relationships in a given couple is predetermined by each partner's personal
characteristics and by his/her capability to develop optimal behavior in a couple.
The principal index for this test is the MatchIndex - index of
compatibility of partners in a couple. MatchIndex ranges from 0% to 100%
or from BAD to GOOD, respectively. MatchIndex comes as an average value of the four other indices,
which are: an expression index, perception index, processing index and
implementation index. Each of them reflects the partners' compatibility
against one of the criteria in the classification first introduced by Carl Jung and later extended
by Isabel Briggs Myers. This classification regards personality as an information system featuring
four criteria: the source and the direction of information expression,
the method of information perception, the method of processing information, and the form of its
implementation. The classification interprets compatibility of the partners
as a match of their information systems by the four above-mentioned criteria.
This information-based matching does not touch on other important personality
characteristics and their compatibility in the course of interaction between the partners.
Experience proves information compatibility to be of such great importance
in partner-to-partner relationships that it can be used to describe and predict
the behavior of a given couple.
To take Jung Marriage Test you should previously obtain your type formula and strength of the preferences from our Jung Typology Test. Once obtained they can be used over and over to discover your compatibility against any partner.
The marriage test results are grouped in three blocks:
|The second block contains the MatchIndex value and a concise wording on the partners' relationships. Specified are the points of tension in the behavior of the couple.|
|MatchIndex = 75% satisfactory|
|Your information compatibility is satisfactory. The analysis below points out the problems in your relationships and makes some recommendations for the optimal behavior for your particular case.|
Main tension in partners relations concerns Processing|
The following figure provides graphically shown values for all the
four indices. The four constituents of the MatchIndex may have a satisfactory
or good meaning, thus making the MatchIndex higher and, vice versa, all
the four indices may have poor values, thus making the MatchIndex low.
Low value for one or more index components supposes the compatibility
against these criteria to be a
in the relations of a given couple.
For example: If the processing index is estimated as "bad" and the remaining indices obtain values "satisfactory" or "good", then the MatchIndex may acquire the value of "satisfactory", however, relations between the partners on the processing criterion are going to be tense.
How does this tension impact on the partners relationship and what style of
behavior is the most suitable in such a situation ? The processing index
reflects the partners' compatibility on the traits thinking-feeling.
The processing index has a value "bad" in the given example because
the partners' preferences on the criterion "Processing" are opposite
and their strengths are distinctly expressed.
One of the partners is an expressed rational person and the
other one a distinctly emotional person.
Such a result essentially
narrows the range of life events on which
the partners could easily co-operate.
Each partner should rely on his companion in solving the
problems in which his soulmate's personal traits are more advantageous.
This is reflected in the description of the couple's
relationship on the processing criterion.
The third block of test results gives descriptions of the couple's relationships for all four criteria. These descriptions show the kind of problems most advantageous for discussion and resolution by both partners, or the range of situations reasonably suitable for both partners. It also explains what kind of situations cause discomfort and tension in the relationship of this particular couple, and the reasons for this.
Such a correlation of personal characteristics regarding this criterion is favorable for your relationship because on one hand you express your attitude to the surrounding world in the same way, and on the other hand, the strengths of your preference are noticeably different, thus significantly enlarging the range of situations which you, as a couple, are able to cope with.
It follows from the above that the range of situations in which the partners together can feel comfortable may include active socializing with groups of people, attending parties, visiting museums, going to the movies, dining out, shopping, and going on physically demanding outings.
It is almost certain that there are no tension points regarding the "Expression" criterion in your relationship. Nevertheless, you should avoid situations which can cause tension in your relationship because of the partners' extroversion. Extroversion traits of both of you can lead to discomfort in relations if you are limited over a long period to a small number of human contacts.
Such an interrelation of personal traits regarding the criterion "Perception" is favorable for your relationship because you perceive the surrounding world in the same - sensory way.
Therefore, it follows that there is a relatively wide range of situations which both partners can understand and cope with. These situations may include the solving of pragmatic tasks which do not have complicated, hard-to-foresee consequences.
It is almost certain that there are no tension points regarding the "Perception" criterion in your relationship. Nevertheless, situations should be avoided which might cause tension in your relationship because of both partners' primarily sensory perception of the world. Preference of the concrete, practical perception of reality might lead to discomfort in relations if both of you need to make decisions on questions requiring foresight.
Since your preferences are opposite and since the strength of preferences is substantial at least in one of the partners, this will almost certainly cause tension in your relationship. Therefore, you should try to make choices that are reasonably comfortable for both partners.
Thus the range of situations in which the partners interrelate comfortably is restricted to some extent.
The situations in which mutual understanding can be achieved are daily life problems, requiring
consideration of human relations and individual approach and, to a certain extent, objectivity and
firmness of execution.
Such an interrelation of personal traits regarding the criterion "Implementation" is favorable for your relationship because you both implement your ideas and adapt to various situations in the same way.
Thus we see that there is a relatively wide range of situations in which the partners can interrelate easily. These may include problems requiring improvisation, flexibility and searching of unusual approaches.
It is almost certain that there are no tension points regarding the "Implementation" criterion in your relationship. However, you should avoid situations which could cause tension in your relationship because of both partners' preference for improvisation and flexibility in their approach to a solution. These spontaneity and flexibility of the partners might lead to tension in relations if both of you have to make decisions which primarily require planning and deadlines. Attempting to solve this type of problem will cause tension in the perceiving partners.
