There are many personality theories and concepts that can help you understand your own personality and your partners. PREPARE/ENRICH uses SCOPE to help individuals see how high or low they score on each of the five factors of personality (Social, Change, Organised, Pleasing and Emotionally calm).
With SCOPE, it is possible to score high on all five factors (or low), and it isn’t negative to be high or low on a particular factor. You may want to consider seeking professional help if a particular factor is so extreme it is interfering with daily life. While your personality frames how you approach life, for some couples, having very different personalities can bring challenges.
We encourage couples to embrace each other’s personalities and continue to build relationship skills.
- How do you and your partner’s personalities complement each other?
- How do you and your partner’s personalities challenge each other?
- Which of your partner’s personality traits first attracted you?
- Were you attracted to the same trait or a different one?
If you and your partner ever feel overwhelmed by your results or the ensuing discussion, we encourage you to seek out professional support. Call us.
Consider taking an assessment or working through our Discussion Guide for Couples... that's a great place start!

Do you need help with an issue or problem? Our approach helps to generate deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship. These conversations can restore insight and understanding about one another.
#PREPARE/ENRICH is a customised online assessment tool that identifies each couples unique strength and growth areas. Based on their assessment results, a facilitator provides feedback sessions, helping couples to discuss and understand their results while teaching them proven relationship skills.
