Love works in mysterious ways and there can be nothing more baffling than the coming together of two starkly different personalities,
wound up in love. So how do opposite personalities attract? Let’s find out!
The whole ‘Men are from Mars’ and ‘Women are from Venus’ argument is explicit enough to tell the tale of differing personalities, many people believe in ‘birds of the same feather flock together’, better. While it is definitely heartening to meet people with whom we can share common interests, one usually tends to vest their emotions in people with differing beliefs. Many psychologists have claimed that this carnal attraction stems from one’s unconscious search for self-completion. Men and women subconsciously seek out partners who can fill up the gaps in their lives. These gaps can either be in the form of requirements or personality traits. Like the magnetic poles in Physics, men and women are attracted to the most opposite personalities because of their subconscious need to find a balance in their lives. Thus a bookish guy tends to find mutual solace with an extroverted woman. But how does this happen?
Nature is all about maintaining the natural balance of things. Thus night follows day and winters follow summer. The diversity in nature mirrors our personality traits completely. The coming together of two unlikely personalities results in a holistic bond, which completes one another on physical and emotional terms. Opposite personalities tend to draw positive qualities from each other and thereby aid in mutual completion. The harmony results from respecting the differences. This explains how an outgoing man can fall in love with an introverted girl. While the guy initiates freedom and a carefree behaviour in the otherwise cautious girl, he inadvertently learns to enjoy the quiet and simple pleasures of life, in her association. The mere thrill of inculcating new knowledge is what unconsciously propels the union of differing personalities.
Does it Last?
While opposites create electrifying combinations of passion, some people tend to believe that these relationships fizzle out once the novelty is gone. Sustaining a relationship, no matter how different the partners are, is highly subjective to their compatibility. If they are supportive enough to brave through the storms of life, they will be able to live happily ever after; if not, then their differences will lead to the end. At the end of the day, no logic or science will be able to determine the cause behind functionally happy relationships. Love truly works in mysterious ways to bring people together.
Relationships work best when people look beyond their differences and move forward with the shared love. While nature works its wondrous ways to bring people together, one can just sit back and expect to meet their perfect match, soon enough.
