Introducing Nanaya Romantic Personality

After several years of running Nanaya we’ve built up one of the largest databases of romantic outcomes to ever exist. Unlike dating sites, Nanaya has data on how people actual live their lives and have romances in the real world – not just in the “Tinderverse.” We also have plenty of data on people in relationships. Unlike Facebook, Nanaya has data on personal values, experiences, and accurate personality data. What all this means is that our research is going to be a lot more complete and accurate than what anyone else can hope to do.

Over the course of our research, we’ve identified personality traits that have significant impact on romantic outcomes. As a result, we’ve developed the brand new Nanaya Romantic Personality Quiz. In about 30 questions, we can describe romantic personality and outcomes better than anything that exists, whether it’s Myers Briggs or any other personality test. But more on that later!

There are free and premium versions of this quiz. The free version is shorter and offers your approximated Nanaya Romantic Personality Type. For users who want an accurate answer, they can opt to pay for Nanaya Premium.

So what does Nanaya Romantic Personality describe?

Nanaya Romantic Personality

There are four dimensions to Nanaya Romantic Personality. For each dimension, there are two traits that describe each side of the dimension. As we detail below, each trait is associated with a letter.

That means everyone is described by a four-letter Nanaya Romantic Personality Type. For anyone who has taken the Myers Briggs assessment, this should sound very familiar!

So let’s learn a little bit about the dimensions and traits that define them.

Dimension #1: Energy

Energy describes how actively people approach the relationships they are in. At one end of the spectrum, people are more expressive, creative, playful, and intensive. We describe these people as Passionate, represented by the letter A. One the other end of the spectrum, people tend to be more reserved (not necessarily “introverted”), calm, and sober. We describe these people as Tranquil, represented by the letter I.

Dimension #2: Confidence

Confidence describes how much reassurance and emotional validation people need from their partners to be satisfied in a relationship. At one end of the spectrum, people are more independent, daring, and self-satisfied. We describe these people at Secure, represented by the letter S. At the other end, people are more cautious, deliberate, and needing of attention. We describe these people as Careful, represented by the letter C.

Dimension #3: Determination

Determination describes how much people are able to define and stay dedicated to achieving their personal goals. For some people, these personal goals can be relationship goals but not always! On one side of the spectrum, people are more focused, strict, and consistent. We describe these people as Rigid, represented by the letter R. On the other side of the spectrum, people are more lenient, open-minded, and able to adjust to the decisions of others. We describe these people as more Flexible, represented by the letter R.

Dimension #4: Lifestyle

Lifestyle describes how open people are to new experiences. “New experiences” doesn’t always mean living an adventurous lifestyle. On one end of the spectrum, people are more satisfied living a varied life, always trying new things. We describe these people as Wild, represented by the letter W. On the other side of the spectrum, people are more content to fall into routines, stay in on weekend nights, and attend to create comforts. We describe these people as Tame, represented by the letter T.

To be clear, Wild can mean something as simple as people who are open-minded to trying new restaurants. Conversely, people who always going mountain climbing or traveling to the same, exotic vacation spots don’t necessarily qualify as Wild.

Nanaya Romantic Personality Types

When all four dimensions are added together, we can define someone’s Romantic Personality. For instance, I’m ACRW: Passionate, Cautious, Rigid, and Wild. Nanaya data tells ACRWs like me that we tend to stay single longer, and are more content being so, living more exciting romantic lives than other Romantic Personality Types. Given all this information, the Nanaya Romantic Personality Report gives tips and suggestions how to get to the romantic goals I choose…without having anyone’s heart broken.

I don’t want to share too much, though! Find out your Nanaya Romantic Personality by taking our quiz!

Why Use Nanaya Romantic Personality?

Using online dating in the United States, it’s common to see people describe themselves by their Myers Briggs type. But let’s face it: Myers Briggs sucks and has little to no place describing relationship dynamics and romantic outcomes. There is no shortage of source online that detail why. At Nanaya, we encourage people to follow up with academic sources. But for your reading and viewing pleasure, consider these places to start: 1, 2, 3.

So why don’t people use any other personality test? There simply isn’t a free, easy-to-use Romantic Personality Test online that’s valid and linked to romantic outcomes. At Nanaya, we want to change this.

At Nanaya, we have partnered with Traitify, who provide our accurate and validated personality testing. We evaluated this data, along with romantic outcome data, to determine a combination of dimensions that are valid, easy to interpret, and have implications for romantic outcomes.

For those familiar with the Big 5 assessment, the canonical personality assessment used in psychology research, you’ll notice that Nanaya Romantic Personality dimensions are eerily similar. This was not by design but the result we arrived at through data analysis. The fact that our research led us to the canonical solution offers some additional validation that what Nanaya offers should provide our users with a meaningful, valid personality type. However, because people are most familiar with Myers Briggs, we have structured our results so people can more easily relate to the results of their assessment.

Finally, as described above, our free Romantic Personality Quiz approximates their Nanaya Romantic Personality. For users who want an accurate assessment, our premium Romantic Personality Quiz and Future Prediction Test will offer a detailed, validated personality test served by Traitfy. Premium Romantic Personality users will also receive a detailed report of their personality beyond romantic personality.
