6 types of Love persona - Which is you?

Here's to the six love styles, which is more intimately known as 'colours' of love, that was identified by John Lee:

Eros, Storge, Ludus, Mania, Agape and Pragma.

Different types of interpersonal relationships involves varying styles of love. It is obvious that the affection you shared between you and your lover is different from the ones you have with friends. So, why not take the test with your partner in tow? The assessment will definitely help in your romantic relationship by being aware of each other's attributes :)

Eros: a passionate physical and emotional love based on aesthetic enjoyment; stereotype of romantic love

Storge: an affectionate love that slowly develops from friendship, based on similarity

Ludus: a love that is played as a game or sport; conquest; may have multiple partners at once

Mania: obsessive love; experience great emotional highs and lows; very possessive and often jealous lovers

Agape: selfless altruistic love

Pragma: love that is driven by the head, not the heart; undemonstrative

Take the questionnaire here: WHAT IS YOUR LOVE STYLE? It's a bit lengthy and time consuming, but I'm sure it would be well worth it. And it's fun; this getting to know more about yourselves quizzes!

Else, you might be suited with the simplified version HERE.

I'm most dominant in Pragma. I am rational and have to be realistic of whom I'd want my potential live-long partner to be: a good observant Muslimah. I don't want to be swayed by the type of attributes portrayed by the media to be infused in our lives.

So which type of lover are you? Do complete the poll! Who knows, I could be your unintended? Heh.

What type of lover are you?


On a side note, have you wondered what types of lovers Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Mahatma Ghandhi, Mother Theresa and your parents are?

Yes, they'd fall under Agape; those of divine and unconditional love, who gives everything and expects nothing in return, and who'd want the best for us above themselves.
