*Smart Matching- Using data science analytics to make the best connections possible. We take into account the latest research into the psychology of friendship, romance and compatibility.
The goal of compatibility profiling is to determine the best possible future behavior indicators that affect compatibility. We believe the best way to predict future behavior is to look at past behavior. We know that when people are trying to attract each other, they are likely to mirror what they think the other person wants to see. By having our questionnaire answered before there is someone to impress, it remains unbiased and honest. It is not tailored to meet someone else's needs.
Our software mixes social science with computer science, by using an algorithm that considers over 100 individual characteristics when deciding who to connect. The purpose of the personality inventory assessment is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people's lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.
"Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. Judgment involves all the ways of coming to conclusions about what has been perceived. If people differ systematically in what they perceive and in how they reach conclusions, then it is only reasonable for them to differ correspondingly in their interests, reactions, values, motivations, and skills.
When people begin dating someone they find attractive to them, they are all too willing to change their behavior to please the other person and it is only when the initial “glow” wears off that they discover whether they were really compatible or not. An example is that if a person who is a 3 in sociability, dates someone who is a 7, they will interact at a 5 level and neither will feel they are making an effort to do so. They may not even be aware there is a difference, as they intuitively compensate to meet the others’ needs.
They will often meet in the middle and go out about once a week. Over time however, water seeks its own level, and they will drift back to the 7 and the 3 and the 7 will once again want to go out a few nights a week, while the 3 will barely want to go out once or twice a month and then the conflict will appear. Then it can become a battle and forced compromise and resentment can ensue
Verbal skill is another area which needs proper matching because when one person has much stronger verbal skills over another, they will usually win every argument and no one likes continually losing in what is not a fair fight. The loser will eventually stop communicating and the winner will often become bossy. This is a recipe for disaster. Conformity is another area that needs to be addressed. When someone who is seriously concerned about what others think of them is in a relationship with someone who could care less about others' judgements of them, it usually leads to conflict. One is always making up for or apologizing for the other. One will be completely oblivious to the neighbors’ feelings while the other will want the neighbors to think highly of them. It is like a conservative living with a radical, probably not enough room under one roof.
When two people meet and that mutual spark of attraction occurs, it is likely to set off a certain type of infatuation which creates what we call the “halo” effect. This tends to block out the usual critical thinking towards this new person. That halo effect can last for many years but normally it lasts between 18 months and 3 years. Then either a new phase of family bonding occurs or the attraction fades away.
One method for improving the odds of the relationship ending in harmony instead of boredom or acrimony, is to get involved with people who have already been tested to be within your “match” range using some proven system of compatibility matching which, fortunately, has benefitted from algorithm science and personality profiling analysis.
While there is still no way to predict who will have “chemistry” with one another, we can be sure that if you do find it with someone you met through Smartmatch420, when the halo wears off, you will discover that you really like the person you fell in love with and that you make a great team, and that can make all the difference.
