    PRAGMA :
    1. I consider what a person is going to become in life before I commit myself to him/her.
    2. I try to plan my life carefully before choosing a lover.
    3. A main consideration in choosing a lover is how he/she reflects on my family.

    MANIA :
    1. Sometimes I get so excited about being in love that I can't sleep.
    2. When I am in love, I have trouble concentrating on anything else.
    3. If my lover ignores me for a while, I sometimes do stupid things to get his/her attention back.

    AGAPE :
    1. I would rather suffer myself than let my lover suffer.
    2. I cannot be happy unless I place my lover's happiness before my own.
    3. I would endure all things for the sake of my lover.

    Hmmm, none of those 6 really resonates with me. They all seem rather unhealthy if one type is meant to describe a person's experience of love. Or else they seem more like stages, like Ludus would come first, then Eros, then Mania, etc. But if they're meant to be a hierarchy within one person's experience of love, so that all 6 are at least present, if not balanced, then I guess I would probably be Storge>Agape>Pragma>Mania>Eros>Ludus.

    Haha. "Storge." Funny word.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    The author Gary Chapman came out with 5 basic styles of love in a relationships in his book The Five Love Languages. The five languages are as follows.
    I. Words of Affirmation style.
    Communication to be used : compliments, affirmation, kind words
    Actions to be taken with this style: send notes and cards.
    What to avoid: criticism.
    II. The quality time style.
    Communication to be used : one to one time, not interrupting, face to face conversation.
    Actions to be taken with this style: take long walks together, doing things together, taking trips.
    What to avoid with this style: long periods of being apart, more time with friends than with spouse.

    III. The receiving gifts style.
    Communication to be used with this style : positive, fact oriented information.
    Actions to take with this style : giving gifts on special occasions and not so special occasions.
    What to avoid : forgetting special day.

    IV. The acts of service type.
    Communication to be used with this style : action words like "I can," "I will," "What else can I do?"
    Actions to be taken with this style : helping with house and yard chores, repair/maintenance, acts of kindness.
    What to avoid : ignoring spouse's requests while helping others.

    V. The physical touch type.
    Communication to be used with this type : a lot of non verbals, verbals need to be word pictures.
    Actions to be taken with this type : touches, hugs, pats, kisses
    What to avoid : physical neglect or abuse.
    Mine is a combination of physical touch, words of affirmation and quality time.

    I think the changes reflect my current relationship woes.

    I'm definitely Agape-dominant so to speak.

    And as far as love languages go I place Quality Time above all else.

    I took the love languages test here: The 5 Love Languages™ | Five Love Languages

    (not the 30 second one) and my results were:

    11 Physical Touch
    8 Words of Affirmation
    7 Quality Time
    3 Acts of Service
    1 Receiving Gifts

    In terms of showing love in a relationship, I'm best at physical touch and pretty terrible at giving words of affirmation.
    Introverted (I) 76.67% Extroverted (E) 23.33%
    Intuitive (N) 61.11% Sensing (S) 38.89%
    Feeling (F) 65.52% Thinking (T) 34.48%
    Perceiving (P) 80.65% Judging (J) 19.35%
