-- The self-development and relationships site AlignedSigns.com has been making news lately. After a successful Valentine's Day contest, the site is now looking to add more subscribers by expanding functionality.
Since its inception, the goal of Aligned Signs is to have more fulfilling relationships - whether for love, friendship and/or professional contacts. The essential idea is to know oneself better. If one is more aware of who s/he is, then that would reflect in the type of friends, relationships and work chosen. The choices made would be way more fruitful than when one is trying to be someone else.
Founder and CEO Jessica Baker launched the site with a vision to help members get in touch with their individual, unique personalities:
"In the rat race of time it is easy to lose sight of the person that you are. But knowing yourself is the cornerstone of successful relationships. We won't tell you what to look for, but we will equip you with the intrapersonal insight to ensure that you find what you're looking for."
The site has been using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
- a scientific psychometric assessment - to provide valuable insights about personality to its subscribers. The popularity of MBTI has led the site to increase access to it through new functionality.
Previously a full membership on Aligned Signs would require one to take the MBTI assessment to find the personality type and learn more about it. Now, there is a column in the Identifiers Tab that allows full members to put in their MBTI type, if they have taken the assessment elsewhere.
This way, the user can get a refresher about their personality type, and publish it to their profile if they choose. The user also has the option to search / match capabilities just as if they took the MBTI on Alignedsigns.com.
The site encourages sharing Identifiers as it allows the profile to be shown in those searches performed by other registered users on Aligned Signs. This way it is easy to connect with and meet people who share common interests, views and even personality tastes.
Apart from MBTI, Aligned Signs has been using other time-tested methods like Chinese Zodiac
and Western Astrology
in an effort to allow users know more about themselves.
