Are you looking for the one with whom you can share personality traits? Well, you should know that the key to finding happiness in a relationship could be as simple as finding a nice person, a new study has found.
The study depicted that despite popular belief, sharing similar traits and personalities may not be as important as most people assume, suggesting that it had almost no influence on how satisfied people were in their respective lives and also, relationships.
"People invest a lot in finding someone who is compatible, but our research says that may not be the end," said Bill Chopik, Associate Professor at Michigan State University in the US.
"Instead, people may want to ask, 'Are they a nice person?' 'Do they have a lot of anxiety?' Those things matter way more than the fact that two people are introverts and end up together," said Chopik.
The study had the researchers measure the effects of personality traits on well-being in 2,578 heterosexual couples who have been married to each other for some 20 years. The results, published in the Journal of Research in Personality, showed that even among the couples who share similar traits, having a partner who is sensible and nice leads to higher levels of relationship satisfaction.On the other hand, having a partner who is unstable and more extroverted results in lower relationship satisfaction.
The most striking fact, apps that match people on compatibility baisi may have it all wrong despite all the talks around, the study suggested.
"When you start to get into creating algorithms and psychologically matching people, we actually don't know as much about that as we think we do. We don't know why the heart chooses what it does, but with this research, we can rule out compatibility as the lone factor," Chopik said.
