Love Language Test: The Different Types And How To Find Yours

Jasmyne Jeffery February 10, 2023

In all aspects of life, we like different things; the same goes for how we like to receive love. Some feel appreciated through gifts, others vocal affirmations and other’s absolutely hate surprises. These have all been grouped into different types of people, and you can find out which one you are through a love language test. We’ll tell you how to find yours out through the quiz.

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, we’re all about love at the moment. One of the ways to show a loved one how much you care is by fully understanding them, and the love language test can do just that. Find out for yourself how you best enjoy a relationship or take it with your partner to see if you match.

What Is A Love Language Test And What Are The Different Types?

The test tells you what you look for most in a relationship. It will ask you a series of questions, asking which of two scenarios is more meaningful for you. Then, once you’ve answered, you’ll be assigned one of 5 ‘languages’, showing what you appreciate more from a partner.

You’ll also be able to see your other love language percentages with your primary one being what you look to the most.

There are 5 different types of love languages:

  • Quality Time: You like full, undivided attention and think being there for your partner is important.
  • Acts of Service: You appreciate when your partner does things for you and takes on chores or responsibilities to ease your stress.
  • Words of Affirmation: You like getting compliments from your partner and being vocally reassured of why they love you.
  • Physical Touch: You appreciate holding hands, hugging, passing touches and kisses in your relationship.
  • Receiving Gifts: You love a gesture when it shows a loved one knows you better than anyone.

How To Find Out Your Language Using The Quiz

Use the lovey-dovey season to find out your own love language using the test and affirm what you’re looking for in a relationship.

First, head to this website where you’ll be able to take the test. You’ll first be asked if you’re an adult, a teen or taking it for a child. Then, you’ll be asked if you are in a relationship or if you are single. After that, you’re ready to take the love language quiz!

You’ll then be asked which of the following is more meaningful:

  • A loving text/note from your partner or receiving a hug.
