Chemistry


So, Match.com started up this new matching service called Chemistry, where you don't search for people, you get put together based on personality. I signed up because I was curious about it and who my matches would be. The whole thing is pretty fascinating; an in-depth personality test, matching, and different steps of contact.

Chemistry went live recently, so I had my first look at my matches. They were okay, but then I started poking around the site and came across my personality test results, which I'm pretty impressed with. I find it interesting that I'm a pretty even split amongst all four of the types.. no wonder I feel so contradictory!


You are an EXPLORER/director

You are a skywalker. You love adventure, both intellectual and physical. And you greet new challenges with passion and bravery.

When you get interested in a project, you can become extremely focused on it, sometimes to the exclusion of all around you. You complete it carefully and thoroughly, often with great originality.

And because you have a lot of energy and tend to be enthusiastic about your ideas, inventions, and projects, you can be very persuasive.

You tend to like to collect things, experiences or ideas. And you are eager to make an impact on those around you, as well as the wider world.

Although you enjoy people and can be charming and humorous, you are not very interested in routine social engagements or boring people. You are comfortable being by yourself, pursuing your own interests.

People probably call you a non-conformist, an original. You like to have good conversations on important topics. People tend to admire you for your innovativeness. You make an exciting, though at times distant, companion.


How your personality breaks out

Explorer - 26% of your personality
Known for high energy, high creativity and spontaneity. Seeks novelty, risk and pleasure. Intellectually curious and not easily swayed by opinion.

Builder - 23% of your personality
Usually very popular. Deep attachment to home and family. Calm demeanor and low anxiety. Often consistent, loyal and protective.

Negotiator - 24% of your personality
Excels at seeing the big picture, long-term planning, and consensus building. An intuitive thinker who is flexible, verbal and socially skilled. Imaginative, empathetic and nurturing.

Director - 25% of your personality
Daring, original, direct and inventive. A non-conformist. Skilled at abstract thinking and short-term planning. Often assertive and quite competitive. Tough-minded and efficient.

Yes... I have this same profile (E/d)... Except 30 on Explorer and only 18 on Builder. Even more over-the-top. An excitement junkie, who's often said I'd burn a third end to the candle if I could just find it, and think sleep is a huge waste of time. The 18 Builder ranking explains my often being a distant companion, and have few close family ties. And I though they were all just too looney! I'm often bored in non-stimulating social settings.

Your profile is one of near self-sufficiency. A team of ONE. You probably entertain and stimulate yourself better than most you meet. Of course, that doesn't always help when seeking a relationship companion.
Good luck!
