After 7 years in development,—the ultimate test of romantic compatibility—is available in beta format. Have you found your perfect love? Do you and someone you just met have what it takes to live happily ever after, or are you headed toward disaster? Click here to find out.

Developed by Dr. Robert Epstein, one of America's most distinguished psychologists, the Epstein Competency Inventories are unique, practical tests that measure the basic skills one needs for a fulfilling life: creativity, stress management, motivation, romantic relationships, parenting, and others. Unlike personality or intelligence tests, which measure traits that are presumed to be fixed and unchanging, competency tests measure skills that can easily be improved through education. All of Dr. Epstein's tests have been scientifically validated, meaning they have been shown to be good predictors of things people care about, such as happiness and success.

Dr. Epstein has also developed a quick-screening test for psychological problems, based on the DSM (the diagnostic manual used by therapists). Some of the tests are available in multiple formats: a full, unabridged version that gives detailed, individualized results, along with recommendations for further learning; an abridged version that can be self-scored; and a mini version that gives people an overall score but no information on separate competencies. Some of the tests are also available in multiple languages.
