|Abstract:||This research analyzed in a sample of married couples, the prevalence of homogamic choice (similarity between the partners), or heterogamic choice (complementarity between the partners) and the effects of the degree of matching personological on marital satisfaction and conflict. The study involved 282 heterosexual couples. To both partners was given the Myers- Briggs Type Indicator test(Myers-Briggs, 1991), with a number of items designed to assess the level of satisfaction and marital conflict. The analysis revealed that the pairs of partners dealing with same or similar typological traits are significantly higher than those with less homogeneous typological traits (chi square= 358,567, df= 79, p.= .000), the partners are significantly more similar than different in relation to perception, judgements, ways to get in touch with the outside world. Such greater similarity cannot be interpreted in relation to the lenght of marriage (chi square= 25,682; gl= 20, p.= .177). Finally, it was found that a greater similarity does not affect satisfaction, while significantly affects conflict: to a greater agreement in the dimensions extroversion-introversion, sensation-intuition and judgment-perception, are associated indexes of higher significantly conflict. The data collected seem to confirm that in seeking a partner to share a part of their life with, the prevailing tendency is to prefer similarities, and that this does not depend the lime lived together, nor is an indicator of greater marital satisfaction, nor a protective factor from conflict.|
