About This Quiz

What's your emotional language? Are you fluent in gift-giving, an expert at paying compliments or the world's greatest kisser? The way you convey love and respect for others indicates your preferred emotional style. You may demonstrate that you care through kind words, or you might prefer to show your affection by doing favors for others. Some folks feel that giving their undivided attention to their loved ones is the most important form of intimacy, while other people think that present-giving or physical contact are more meaningful communication styles.
