I mentioned anthropologist and love researcher Helen Fisher two posts ago. She has put her observations and ideas about love and compatibility into test form at Chemistry.com. There, in about 20 minutes, you can take a test that tells you about your personality, strengths and weaknesses, and who you might be most attracted to.

Please take the test (I'm sure you'll find it interesting) and report back in the following way:
1. your socionic type (self-typing)
2. your Chemistry.com test result
3. your opinion of the accuracy of the description (0% to 100%)
There are people from the MBTI or Keirsey camp who see a correspondence between Fisher's types and Keirsey temperaments or MBTI types, but I think these correlations are baloney. It's the same old fallacy of assuming that types are literally real and that only one set of real types can exist, therefore two different systems of types must either correspond closely, or one of the systems is bogus.
In further posts I will discuss Fisher's types in greater depth.
