    Default Relationship success and personality correlations

    I thought I had posted a thread on this topic before, but apparently not (perhaps it was a post in a general thread).

    Post here any correlations between (perceived) relationship success/quality, relationship length etc. and facets of personality - and perhaps also other measures (such as age, similarity of ideology, and so on). Of course ideally, we would also have comprehensive studies involving Socionics types (which do exist, to varying levels of credibility).

    The predictive power of the Big Five personality traits extends to satisfaction in romantic relationships. Recent research demonstrates that personality trait levels may predict relationship quality in dating, engaged, and married couples via measures of the Big Five, self-reported measures of personality traits and relationship quality by participants in romantic relationships, partner-reported measures of participating partner's personality traits and relationship quality, physiological measures, and ratings of relationship quality by a qualified observer.[4]

    Dating couples
    Self-reported relationship quality is positively related to self-reported Conscientiousness
    Self-reported Agreeableness is positively related to others' ratings of relationship quality
    Partner-reported Neuroticism is negatively related to self-reported quality and positively related to Conscientiousness[4]

    Engaged couples
    Self-reported relationship quality was higher among those high in Extraversion and Conscientiousness
    Observers rated the relationship quality higher if the participating partner's self-reported Extraversion was high[4]

    Married couples
    High self-reported Neuroticism, Extraversion, and Agreeableness are related to high levels of self-reported relationship quality
    Partner-reported Agreeableness is related to observed relationship quality.[4]

    Studies that take into account the personality (whether in terms of similarities or in terms of differences) of both people in a relationship (presuming there are two) would of course be of special interest, because those are things you are better able to control (in terms of choosing a partner), and also, it has significance in regards Socionics intertype theory.
