How would you describe you and your partner’s psychological compatibility?

March 30, 2019

Most people decide to join their lives with another person only when they are sincerely sure that there is love. But, unfortunately, not all marriages made on love are long and stable. Why does it happen that one married couple lives a life of love and harmony but the other gets divorced shortly after the wedding? 

Psychologists give a clear answer to this question: if people are psychologically incompatible, no passion can save their relationship. In general, when it comes to compatibility, you shouldn’t mistake this for similarity or even equivalence. We are talking about such a characteristic as the correlation of some viewpoints, thoughts, ideals. 

Psychological compatibility is mainly the absence of contradictions between beliefs, their complementarity, matching expectations. Spousal compatibility is the most important condition for the stability and prosperity of the couple. 

For example, two sanguine persons are well-compatible since they support activities, the optimism of each other. The situation is similar with two phlegmatic persons because the pace of their activity allows partners to interact with no hurry. Less compatible are two melancholic types due to their vulnerability, while the least compatible are two choleric partners due to their irritability and reactivity. 

Also, most family psychologists unanimously believe that in order for the marriage of two people to be strong, long and happy, husband and wife should be not only lovers but also friends. And for this purpose, they should have common interests, hobbies, topics for conversations, tastes and the level of culture and intelligence. 

Another factor in the spousal compatibility is their idea about the distribution of roles and responsibilities between wife and husband in the family. That is, partners, in any case, should meet the expectations of each other as much as possible. 

So, how do you rate psychological compatibility with your spouse?


  • Outstanding. We’re like two peas in a pod
  • It’s good, but could use some improvement
  • We’re incompatible, but appreciate the differences
  • Incompatible and it’s only a matter of time before we separate

Are you a workaholic?

September 26, 2017

In the modern world, one has to work a lot, work hard and even take the work home. Such schedule is valued by many employers and is considered a prerequisite for success. However, on the road to the career fame, hard work is often transformed into a kind of work dependence. In particular, a person begins to devote all their time to business affairs, stays in office until late at night, and sometimes even sleeps there. In this case, it is customary to talk about a workaholic who is ready to work 24 hours a day, yet their main purpose is not to earn as much money as possible, rather simply to work as long as possible and more.

Of course, for some employers, such an employee will prove to be a very valuable find, because, if anything, they can always do the most difficult and sometimes not interesting tasks, and they will always fulfill them. You can be surely called workaholic if you spend all your time working at the expense of rest and communication with family and friends.

At moments of rest, the workaholic is anxious and wants to return to work. At weekends, such people are trying to give work at least a few hours and may even refuse the annual leave. In addition, workaholic perceives the failures in work close to the heart and, because of this, can even fall into depression. 

So, would you call yourself a workaholic?

  • Yes
  • Sometimes, it depends on the project
  • No

Do you trust your intuition?

Intuition is the ability of a person to predict a particular event. It is an understudied ability of the human psyche, which enables you to make the right decisions that lead to a successful and happy life – in the absence of logical considerations. Each person has this ability, to a greater or lesser extent; usually, there are no exceptions. Nevertheless, people are rational beings. We are brought up in a world where common sense and logic dominate, and some people are quite skeptical about the development of intuition and the very fact of its existence in general. In a state of stress and tension, the possibility of developing intuition is absent as chaos and clutter interfere with hearing the true inner voice. If you try to turn off thinking, you can open the door for intuition. Some are convinced that the more you trust your intuition, the better it will work. This unique ability can be used in any area of life: home, work, game, etc. Decisions taken intuitively often turn out to be correct, but this feeling appears and disappears quite suddenly. 

So, do you trust your intuition?

  • Yes
  • Sometimes
  • No
