If you ask people on dating apps or websites if they’d like to stop wasting time on bad dates, you’d hear a resounding yes. Dating is energy-draining for anyone, but even more so for us introverts. Many introverts would rather stay cozy at home than hit the bars, which can translate to fewer dates and a lower chance of meeting someone with whom they truly click.
As an introvert myself, the thought of spending a night making small talk with a stranger who I have nothing in common with makes me want to crawl under my duvet. Seeing as introverts spend less time going on dates, it’s even more important to improve our chances of meeting someone with whom we can share a deep connection.
To help, my sister and I set up sosyncd, the first dating app and website that matches complementary Myers Briggs personality types. It’s also great for busy extroverts who have little time for dating.
Here are six ways the Myers Briggs framework and So Syncd can make dating more fun – and help you find love as an introvert.
1. You might finally find that special someone.
If you’ve studied Myers Briggs personality types, you know that some personality combinations are more compatible than others. Of course, attraction is highly complex, and there are multiple factors that come into play – in other words, personality type isn’t everything. But personality compatibility does play a crucial role. So Syncd matches people who have just the right amount of similarities to “get” each other, and just the right amount of differences to create that spark, making dating more fun, meaningful, and successful.
2. You’ll gain self-awareness.
Meeting the partner of your dreams is half the battle, but the next equally important step is that they like you back. And how do you increase your chances of this? You become the best version of yourself.
When you sign up for So Syncd, you’ll start by taking our comprehensive personality assessment, which consists of 40 questions and takes about five to ten minutes. If you know your Myers Briggs type already, you have the option to skip this part.
Knowing and understanding your Myers Briggs personality type is one of the most powerful tools for personal development. It can help you understand your weaknesses, your strengths, your blind spots, how you act when stressed, and so much more. Self-awareness is everything when it comes to healthy relationships.
3. You’ll understand others better and improve your relationships.
I look back at my pre-Myers-Briggs-knowing self and I’m shocked at how much I projected my own experiences onto others. It’s easy to assume that other people think similarly, show love in the same way, or have the same needs as us. Having an awareness of how wildly different people actually are, and even better, in what ways they are different, is invaluable. Mutual understanding is crucial for any healthy relationship and knowledge of the Myers Briggs theory can hugely help in connecting with and understanding a potential partner.
4. You’ll meet other people who are looking for a meaningful connection.
Meeting someone on So Syncd increases the chance of being on the same wavelength. As So Syncd is based on more than just looks, it attracts people who are searching for a meaningful connection, rather than more superficial encounters that are often encouraged by other dating apps/websites. There is no meaningless swiping, and app telefono incontri coreani if someone takes the time to work out their personality type, chances are they’re also looking for a mental and emotional connection rather than a purely physical one.
5. You’ll build resilience.
When it comes to dating, there’s no one-size-fits-all. While one person might be attracted to the quiet, mysterious type, someone else might fall head-over-heels for the bubbly party animal. Understanding that different people find different traits attractive is hugely liberating. A characteristic you have that one person finds annoying might be totally adored by the next person you date. Just being aware of this can help you build resilience and hopefully help with taking rejection less personally.
6. You get to skip the small talk (!)
Few people enjoy the small talk that goes hand-in-hand with first dates. If both of you know your Myers Briggs type on your first date, it can create a more interesting starting point for conversation. To help that first connection along, we have summaries of each type and suggestions for the ideal date.
So Syncd is revolutionizing the way people date by pairing couples who have just the right amount of similarities to “get” each other and just the right amount of differences to create that spark. Feeling understood is a core human need, and it’s essential for any healthy relationship.
With So Syncd, you can search for specific personality types, or click “choose for me,” and we’ll work it all out for you. Either way, you get a compatibility percentage for each person, can search for people in any location, can see who has liked you, and you get a list of suggested matches.
