What makes the EliteSingles personality test special?

Divided into ten sections, the personality test comprehensively evaluates you and is central to our matchmaking process. It’s based on the Five Factor Model theory of personality traits, a psychological model based on research by Robert McCrae and Paul Costa. By widely questioning your personality, it calculates your levels of openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. By basing our personality test in psychological compatibility, our smart profiling system is able to deliver between 3-7 compatible matches a day, in line with your individual personality type preferences, leaving you free to focus on saying hello to that intriguing someone.

How to make the most of the EliteSingles personality test

So, now you know how the test will determine your personality 'type,' what should you consider for long-term success? What choices can help you find the right person?

i. Contemplate and be honest

With more than 200 questions, the personality test should be properly considered; complete it when you are relaxed. While some are polar (yes/no) questions, others use a scale to judge relative importance and require personal reflection of what you are really like. Honesty is always the best strategy. The questionnaire is one of the means by which EliteSingles introduces you to other users. Giving what may appear to be the ‘right’ answer may serve to dilute your qualities and portray you as somebody quite generic; what makes you different is usually what makes you attractive. Thinking honestly is therefore recommended, both to distinguish yourself and allow us to introduce you to members who really suit you.

ii. Distinguish yourself

The personality test includes both multiple choice and open-response questions, such as ‘what are you passionate about?’, and will respond to how strongly you agree or disagree on a subject. It will also work to determine the focus you place on intellectual ability, professional ambition, and relationship goals. Use our open questions to present a unique snapshot of yourself as a person, and tell others in detail what you are looking for. If you strongly value your academic side, for instance, tell people why this is important to you, and what you expect in return.

As research by Norton (2007) has established, profiles with more information have far more success in attracting highly compatible people, so try to present yourself as fully as possible.1 Other members want to read something interesting about you, so convey what makes you special. Just as you would like to read interesting responses from other members, write expressively and memorably in return.

Hi, I have recently joined elite singles which is great! However I have noticed that the age of the women that has been suggested in corospondence to the personalited test are above the age group I am idealy looking for. If the age group of the women were slightly younger or the same I would be open minded to that. So how do I go about changing this?

Hi Daniel

The easiest way to change this is by adjusting your search criteria

The first step is to log into ELITESINGLES with your registered email address and password. Once you are in click on the magnifying glass at the top of the page which will take you to the search section.

You should now see a category section to the left of the page with options such as 'desire to have children' or 'age and height'.

You can then change your settings for each option (in this case age), by clicking on the appropriate option and selecting a new option from the corresponding drop-down menu. You may also wish to to change the importance level of this requirement by sliding the yellow blob to the left ('Not at all') or the right ('Very important').

The final thing to remember is to always click 'save' after each change to lock in your choices. You can always cancel these actions by clicking 'reset'.

We hope this is of help, if you have any further questions please do comment again or email us at
