There are many personality theories and concepts that can help you understand your own personality and your partners. Couple Checkup 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.

The CoupleCheckup is an online couple assessment based on the PREPARE/ENRICH couple inventories. The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions. The goal is for the CoupleCheckup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
