Strengthen your relationship with these personality tests to take with your significant other.
I admit I’m a sucker for a good personality test. While I do love the fun Buzzfeed quizzes that tell me which Disney princess I would be best friends with and what vacation I should take next based on my favorite cheese, those obviously don’t really tell you anything about yourself. When it comes to personality tests, there are some tried and true tests that can really help you get to know yourself a little better, and in doing so, they can help your partner get to know you better as well.

I honestly believe that when you were born can say a lot about you. This birth chart doesn’t give you the high-level layer of information that most astrological websites do. It analyzes your birth chart and everything about the date, time and place you were born to give you more information about yourself. You can even add a second person to show your compatibility.
