5 Love Languages Personal Profile for Couples


Scale name: Love Languages Personal Profile for Couples (LLPP)

Scale overview: The LLPP is a 50 item forced-choice measure developed by Chapman. There are 12 statements for each love language and each language is paired 3 times.

Author: Gary Chapman

Response Type

Subscales: There are 5 subscales corresponding to the 5 Love Languages:

Words of Affirmation (e.g., words of appreciation and affirmation; express kindness)

Quality Time (e.g., focused attention without interruption and without giving advice)

Receiving Gifts (giving gifts, which need not be expensive; the gift of time during a crisis)

Acts of Service (e.g., completing tasks for them)

Physical Touch (e.g., sexual and nonsexual)


Sample items:

10. It's more meaningful to me when...

     A. I hear my partner tell me, "I'm proud of you."

     D. my partner helps me with a task.

7.  It's more meaningful to me when...

C. my partner gives me a gift.

A. I hear "l love you" from my partner.


Psychometric Properties

Reliability: Scales based on the 5 love languages have reported acceptable alpha levels. See Bland and McQueen (2018) for a summary.

Validity: The model of the 5 love languages has received general support in studies using different measures of the 5 love languages. Bland and McQueen (2018) examined the LLPP and found evidence that couples with similar love language preferences were more likely to report relationship satisfaction.

The review of evidence by Impett et al. (2024) challenges the Five Love Languages model, including the quiz. The review deserves consideration before using the quiz in evidence-based interventions.

Subscales : The PSQ has four subscales 1. Self-fulfilment (6 items) 2. Autonomy (4 items) 3. Honesty (3 items) 4. Emotional self-concept (5 items)  👉 [ Read more about Self-Concept and Self-Identity] The PSQ is a Likert-type scale with five response options ranging from totally disagree to totally agree. Reliability and Validity In the first study, coefficient alpha = .85 and in study two, alpha = .83. Data analysis supported a four-dimensional model (see the four categories above). Positive correlations with other self-concept measures were statistically significant. Other notes The authors estimated it took about 10 minutes to complete the PSQ. Their first study included people ages 12 to 36 ( n = 506). In the second s

Validity: There were significant positive correlations with similar measures. The results of a Fa
