Compassionate Love Quiz
You might love your partner truly, madly, deeply. But do you love compassionately?
To find out—and get tips for becoming a more compassionate partner—take this quiz, which is adapted from a scale developed by researchers Susan Sprecher and Beverley Fehr.
Please answer the below questions as honestly as possible; there are no right or wrong answers. For the first 15 questions, please indicate how much you agree or disagree with each statement.
The last five questions are about you, and they'll be used by our research team to better understand how compassionate love relates to factors like age and gender. We'll report next month on what the scores suggest about the Greater Good community.
When you're done, you'll get your score, learn more about the benefits of compassionate love, and find resources for bringing more compassion into your relationship.
