How Does Your Personality Affect Your Relationship?

11 March 2020

The aim of this research is to investigate the challenges and opportunities of couples in 21st century relationships in relation to the personality styles of individuals in committed relationships. For example, it is expected that individuals who feel more secure in their relationships will identify more opportunities and fewer challenges, and those who have an insecure attachment style may identify more challenges and fewer opportunities.
