Someone asked me the other day if I was the jealous type, and I immediately responded, "No, of course not!" But upon further reflection, I was forced to admit to myself that I do, in fact, have some jealous tendencies. Isn't it human nature to feel a little neglected when your partner checks out someone else or chats with a hottie at a bar? Whether that jealousy is validated or not, I think most people tend to feel envy every now and then, and for certain jealous Myers-Briggs types, that distrust can even put a strain on their romantic relationships.
Jealousy isn't necessarily a bad thing — it just means you care, right? But when your envy is a result of a bruised ego or unfounded suspicions rather than your partner's behavior, you may be putting your relationship at risk. Some personality types have a hard time keeping jealous feelings at bay, and for those types, maintaining romantic relationships becomes more of a challenge. Not sure what your personality type is? Take the test to find out. You may just be one of the personality types that struggles with jealousy and should take extra care to keep those resentful feelings in check.
