Companionship Quiz: Are You Compatible?


Pop songs, poems, and greeting cards celebrate the joy of togetherness. But psychology tells us that people differ from one another in their need for closeness. How much distance we prefer emotionally—-between ourselves and family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and others in our social environment-—is neither healthy nor unhealthy in itself. Yet it exerts a huge impact on our romantic intimacy. Generally, women in the United States are more likely than men to express their companionship needs. Still, we're all individuals when it comes to this trait.

How strong is your need for companionship? Below, please read each question carefully and mark the answer that best fits you. There are no "right" or "wrong" answers on this quiz. Just describe yourself honestly and state your opinions as accurately as possible.
