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
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)
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.
C. my partner gives me a gift.
A. I hear "l love you" from my partner.
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.
