A new app has launched that seeks to bring people closer together using a unique personality matching system to see how compatible people are with their partners, friends and family members.
All users have to do is complete a simple questionnaire, before choosing who they want to compare their answers against, and the app will generate a compatibility score using each of the user’s responses.
The founder of Personality Match, Johan Hagenbeuk, explains: “What is the one thing most people do everyday? Trying to understand the people around them and finding out how they’ll get along.
“PersonalityMatch facilitates this complicated process and offers everyone a fun and easy way to find out their compatibility with others.
“If you want to get a clear understanding of where your partner, friends, colleagues, fellow students or others important to you are coming from, give PersonalityMatch a try!”
The unique personality match process used by the app was created by Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs, who based their system on the work of psychologist Carl Jung and his research into personality traits.
The questions vary from would-you-rather type queries, to how you might organise your desk at work, or how you would deal with a certain situation.
And the answers can be used to see how people really function, by working out certain personality traits from their answers.
Hagenbeuk told GDI: “What makes PersonalityMatch really unique is that we have developed an algorithm, based on metrics like: strive for harmony, willingness to invest in relation, need to be in control, need for social interaction, ability to deal with conflicts and more.”
The app also provides relationship advice to its users, using four function pairs: extraversion versus introversion, intuition versus sensing, feeling versus thinking and judging versus perceiving.
These advice categories aim to help users really get to grips with how the other person ticks, giving them a deeper understanding of their partner, friend or family member and what they can do to strengthen their relationship.
Asked why he thought people needed an app to make their relationships better, Hagenbeuk said: “Instead of hiring an expensive psychologist, Personality Match can give you a quick and fun insight into your own personality type and how you interact with your others.
“It’s also an easy way for people who are dating to determine quickly if their potentially new found partner is a great fit or not!”
