Our Personality Test: How it Works
By determining your personal attributes, a completed test will help introduce you to compatible matches. A few key considerations when taking the test will facilitate your long-term success with EliteSingles.
About our personality test
Divided into ten sections, the personality test comprehensively evaluates you and is central to our matchmaking process. By determining your personality and individual attributes, our smart profiling system is able to deliver up to 7 compatible matches a day, so you can browse through the best options and focus on dating.

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 reflection of what you are 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.

Personality Test Breakdown
When you have completed the test you will be presented with your personality profile. It’s based on the Five Factor Model theory of personality traits, a psychological model based on research by Robert McCrae and Paul Costa. It will describe your levels of openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism.
This trait reflects 'open-mindedness' and interest in culture. High scorers tend to be imaginative, creative, and to seek out cultural and educational experiences. Low scorers are more down-to-earth, less interested in art and more practical in nature.
This trait looks into how organised and persistent we are in pursuing our goals. High scorers are methodical, well organised and dutiful. Low scorers are less careful, less focussed and more likely to be distracted from tasks.
This trait is about how you behave in social situations. People high in extraversion are energetic and seek out the company of others. Low scorers (introverts) tend to be more quiet and reserved.
This trait is a sign of how we tend to interact with others. People high in agreeableness tend to be trusting, friendly and cooperative. Low scorers tend to be more aggressive and less cooperative.
This trait reflects the tendency to experience negative thoughts and feelings. High scorers are prone to insecurity and emotional distress. Low scorers tend to be more relaxed, less emotional and less prone to distress.
The personality test includes both multiple choice and open-response questions, such as ‘what are you passionate about?’, and will respond to the focus you place on intellectual ability, professional ambition, and relationship goals. Use our open questions to present a unique snapshot of yourself, 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, dating profiles with more information have far more success in attracting highly compatible suitors, 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.
