I think most people's primary love language is Quality Time or Physical Touch, followed by Words of Affirmation, followed by Acts of Service, followed by Gifts. Just take a look at this overall poll: https://personalitycafe.com/sex-relat...ages-love.html. Almost no one has Gifts of Acts of Service as their primary.



    Yes, this is generally true. The term "love language" typically refers to the one in which you "hear" or would like to receive most.
    I disagree. MY primary love languages are gifts and acts of service. I feel much more loved when someone writes me a note on a napkin or cooks me dinner than I do with just time, empty words or touch. Oh yeah, I'm an NF too so concur with your statement that it has nothing to do with MBTI

    The descriptors may, the test does not. The test focuses on the subjects needs and wants. As in I tested for Quality Time & Physical Touch, but I give love through act of services and gifts. It seems to presume what makes you feel love be the most natural way you give it. From my experience people, even children, can be more complicated than this. But, it is of some use.

    I never bothered doing a test - I didn't see the need. It's only 5 different options, not 16. I read about it instead and could clearly relate to the ones that I am. I'm assuming you've tried that? I give and receive love in exactly the same way, as I'm sure do most people so I wouldn't listen to whatever 'test' it is that's tried to type you.

    why do you assume people give and receive love in the same way?

    Because from what I've observed - they do. My work with my clients thus far has reiterated this initial finding - I'm yet to work with or meet someone who gives differently to how they receive, however I am open to that being a rare possibility.....

    I scored the full amount of points for Acts of Service, with Receiving Gifts second and the other three with terribly low scores. (Physical touch was the worst, I scored zero on that one!)

    You know, this really makes sense. I respect people who DO instead of TALK. People say stuff all day long but until you put action behind it, it means nothing (to me anyway). The sad thing is... everyone else here seems to have the right parents for me! Cuz my parents are not Acts of Service. Most people don't seem to be.

    Those phrases in the Acts of Service section are really spot on: "Making more work for an AoS person or broken promises tells the AoS person that they don't matter" or "Easing the burden of responsibilites on an AoS is a way of loving them".
    I swear, people suck with this. I have a coworker and friend who heard that I had chronic insomnia all my life and he came up to me before he left work one day. He said that he had a bottle of vitamins or something that was good for sleep and he would bring it/give it to me. That shocked the crap out of me! I mean, who would ever do something that nice for me? Who would give me something? But, he forgot and never brought them or mentioned them again.

    I would have rather him never even said a word than to have done that! Talk is so cheap. But, whatever. Story of my life.

    As for all you Physical Touch peeps, I feel bad for you. I mean, it's hard to do anything in this day and age without it getting misinterpreted. Plus you have to wait for others to touch you/hug you sometimes. And people who's love language is not in their top two don't normally do things like that. (As I'm one of those people who will never voluntarily touch someone or sit close to them). But if it helps at all, people in this day and age are freaking lazy and self centered so just as you may have to wait days, weeks, years before someone hugs you/touches you, I have to wait years too.

    Anyways, I hope you all find out your love languages and also notice the languages of the people around us so we can mend the brokenness in this world.

    My first is quality time and my second is words of affirmation :)

    Physical touch...
    I guess this is one small of hundreds of reasons I broke up with my boyfriend. I told him a million times, that when I try to hug him and he shrugs away I feel offended, abandoned and lonely. I mean, I would understand if he let me hug him and then say that he's not in the mood for it. At least, I would try.

    I also guess this is the same reason that during a recent trip to a latino music night club, I - being caught up in a very provocative continuous dance with my colleague, and after a few drinks - started snogging him.
    Gosh, he is such a jerk most of the time! You can barely stand him Too bad he is a good dancer and a touch oriented person.

    According to the 5 love languages website, about 75% of people give the same language most that they want to receive most. About 25% of people are different.

    Yes, I suppose so. Sorry about that! There's always good info on the blog section of the 5 love languages website, though.
