Everyone has an ideal partner. We can’t help it — we’re just drawn to certain personalities, characteristics, and gestures. So when someone has these qualities or does these gestures, we can’t help but feel attraction. That’s the fun thing about dating: we can seek someone we feel a deep connection with, no matter if we’re independent or dependent.

That’s why our zodiac signs give a peek into our dominant personalities. And these dominant personalities allow us to scope out potential partners. Astrology Answers tells us exactly who we seek in our relationships and why we’re attracted to them.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Aries value confidence and independence. They seek equality in a relationship, so they want an equally independent and confident partner who can take care of themselves if the Aries is unable to.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Taurus like to be wooed, so your seductive nature and efforts to make them feel special stands out to them. It takes time and effort to gain a Taurus’ trust, but when you do, your patience and effort will pay off because they’re some of the most loyal of lovers.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Geminis are free, independent spirits who love to talk. They’re drawn to romantic and adventurous gestures, as well as the ability to listen, and match their energy and enthusiasm in a conversation.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Cancers are loyal and dependable. It also takes them some time to fully trust another person. When they do, that person has their full loyalty and devotion. Their ideal partner is someone who can offer them that same loyalty, and someone they can depend on.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): The most confident yet egotistical of the signs, Leos bask in the attention and admiration given to them. They’re attracted to one who gives them that attention and admiration that they crave, and likewise, they will give that person the same treatment.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): The most intelligent and analytical of the signs, Virgos seek a partner who can match their intelligence and logic. So if you can maintain a stimulating and intellectual conversation with a Virgo, you allow them to slowly come out of their shell.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): Libras are the epitome of grace and hospitality; they love people but can also be superficial. So they look for someone who treats them with the same grace and class they show to others, maybe even a little bit more.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): When it comes to love and attraction, Scorpios don’t play games. They passionately love and get extremely jealous. All they seek is a genuine person they can trust who’s also passionate about them.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Although Sagittarius are extremely independent, when they decide to do something they stick to it. They rarely ever commit to a person, so when they do they seek the same exact commitment from the other person, and a little adventurous streak is a bonus.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Capricorns are independent and ambitious. They seek a partner who’s equally passionate and ambitious because they’re drawn to the idea of a success. This allows the Capricorn to bask in the achievements of their partners, and vice versa.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Aquarius are free spirits, probably even more so than Geminis. They love adventure and spontaneity, so they seek a partner who can take them on these spontaneous adventures.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): The most idealistic of the signs, Pisces are the hopeless romantics, the ones who fantasize about an ideal love story. Anyone who can fulfill these fantasies can capture their heart.

This Is How You’re Going To Die (Probably), Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

The most common last words for an Aries are “hold my beer.” Their adventurous spirit is an aspirational attribute — until they do something gloriously stupid like riding a segue off a cliff or disappearing while traveling to a foreign country they insist is “totally safe.”

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

A Taurus will die doing something they insist they can do alone, but shouldn’t. Have fun being crush underneath the bookshelf you thought you could move on your own!

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

A Gemini will die by making friends with the wrong person. They’re so friendly and positive that they see the good in everyone — even people that scream “bad for you.” While they SWEAR they have excellent intuition, they’ll die by their misplaced trust in a fixer upper of a friend.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

A Cancer will die of a broken heart or something equally sappy and lame. When something really bad happens, their self-destructive habits come out. They’ll wallow away until their resolve to go on fizzles.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

A Leo will die in a desperate plea for attention. Every #selfiedeath has been a Leo.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

A Virgo will die at the office. On a holiday weekend.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

A Libra will die doing something for someone they love. Like, there will be a flu shot shortage one year and they’ll forgo one out of the goodness of their hearts — and then get the flu and die.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

A Scorpio will die in a fight with someone over a topic they’ve already forgotten about. They will leave instructions to make sure their obituary clarifies that they won.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

A Sagittarius will die of laughter, probably at their own joke.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

A Capricorn will die of old age on a deathbed, surrounded by all the people who have disappointed them in their lives so they can spend their last few hours being let down one last time.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

An Aquarius will die helping someone in need — at their own expense. They’ll pick up a hitchhiker that plays on their sense of duty and do-gooderness or get hurt while trying to rescue someone from an accident. They’re the kind of person you hope is around in a crisis.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

A Pisces will wander into traffic while writing a poem on their iPhone notes or getting lost in the lyrics to whatever dreamy song is playing in their headphones. They will literally die because their head was in the clouds.

13 Signs You Are Most Definitely A Psych Major

1. People assume you want to be a clinical psychologist. No, no, no. There’s so much more to psychology than clinical psychology. To name a few other areas: Developmental, Cognitive, Social/Personality, and Neuroscience.

2. Someone has asked you, “What can you tell me about myself?” when you’ve only known them for a grand total of five minutes. Lol, I can tell you’re an idiot.

3. Psychological thrillers are your favorite.Fight Club, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Black Swan, Criminal Minds. Need I say more?

4. Dreading the fact that four years is not enough. Hello, grad school!

5. Rolling your eyes at people that think Freud’s psychoanalytic theory is a thing. Granted it’s interesting to learn about (and historical), but a lot of aspects of Freud’s theory are sexist and outdated. Penis envy, anyone?

6. The Myers-Briggs Personality test isn’t a thing either. Same as Freud’s psychoanalytic theory, this theory helped the field improve in its search for operationalizing personality, but the 16 prototypes that were developed are in a sense like zodiac signs: entertaining, but not scientific or factual.

7. You’re tired of hearing the stereotype that psych majors are crazy. Even though, deep down, you question your own sanity.

8. You’ve been asked, “Are you reading my mind?” Yes, I am. Be scared.

9. Looking forward to most of your classes. Cultural Psychology? Brain and Behavior? Yes, please!

10. Statistics is now wired into your brain. Correlation does not equal causation.

11. You’ve been asked by friends how they should handle their personal problems or situations. Lol, I don’t fucking know.

12. Having to tell many of your STEM friends that yes, psychology is a science too. We conduct research using the scientific method. ‘Nuff said.

13. You take pride in the fact that psychology majors are some of the most open minded people you’ll ever meet. We study behavior and understand the power of the situation and the power of biology, which means we know how to cut people some slack.

Personality Tests Are Not Accurate: Myers-Briggs Personality Test Not As Reliable, Valid As The ‘Big 5’

Many of us are guilty of taking silly personality tests like,  “What fast food chain are you?” or “What piece of furniture describes you best?” We know not to take them seriously, but there are others, like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), that we trust, because a lot of psychologists once did too. However, these four-letter personality types (i.e., ISTJ or ENFP), don’t mean much — they fail to include what psychologists define as personality, including thoughts, emotional responses, and behaviors.

In SciShow Psych’s video, “Do Personality Tests Mean Anything?” host Brit Garner explains the key to identifying someone’s personality is by looking at the individual traits people have that seem to be stable across time and apply in different contexts. The MBTI test measures people on whether they’re extroverted or introverted; relies on their senses or intuition; whether they lean towards thinking or feeling; and whether they’re more likely to be judging or perceiving. Psychologist Carl Jung developed these ideas by working with patients. Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers, then sought to measure personality via the previously stated traits.

The MBTI test consists of 16 possible personality types, and even lists the career you’re suited for based on your type. However, this test lacks what psychologists strive for reliability and validity. Ideally, psychologists want to have retest reliability; this means giving people the same test over time, where they’ll get a similar score. Another reliability measure, known as internal consistency reliability, emphasizes measuring one component of personality at a time.

The MBTI test failed to be both reliable and valid. A study found after a five-week gap between tests, half of the people got a new type the second time. But, reliability does improve if psychologists use a numeric score instead of a category. For example, saying someone is “56 percent extroverted” conveys more reliability and validity since most people aren’t extreme extroverts or introverts; they fall somewhere along the middle.

Moreover, numeric score works better, because there’s a spectrum when it comes to personality traits. These traits tend to change in different situations. A better way to look at personality is through the “Big Five” personality traits, known as openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. It doesn’t assign us a personality type, but it can tell us about the individual aspects of our personality.

Personality tests may be popular, but if you’re taking the MBTI test or similar, it will fall short identifying the real you.
