Soul Mates – Part IV:The Psychologist’s View

Hello Friends,

Here is the version IV of my soul mate – search report. This report doesn’t give any surprises to me as I had in the last report.

This time I am analysing the soul mates, how the psychologists define the soul mates based on their research.

Considering Aristophanes theory ,he is not a psychologist (he was a playwright and director), each soul has an exact other soul on the earth.

Psychologists claim that well educated people do not typically believe in the concept of the soul mate. People like to favour a well-suited partner rather than soul mate.

The Siemens Festival Nights conducted a survey with 2000 people and found that,

  • One in seven believed to be not with their love.
  • An average person has fallen head over heels in love just twice in their life and has been left heartbroken once.
  • An unfortunate one in 20 adults has been heartbroken more than 5 times in their life.
  • For about 60% of the people in the interview said they took more than 10 weeks to know that they are in love.
  • Women are tending to fall in love more than men.
  • Nearly 75% of the people in the poll say that the love changes when they get older

The soul mate is not a real person rather it is assumed to exist within our imagination. And many of the people have had to learn that their search for a soul mate drew them into unsatisfying and dysfunctional relationships.

Dr. Ted Hudson of the University of Texas, ran a longitudinal study of couples who had been married for years and in his research he found out something quite surprising.

Dr. Ted Hudson explains, “My research shows that there is no difference in the objective compatibility between those couples who are unhappy and those who are happy”.

Dr. Ted Hudson went on to say that couples who were feeling happy said that compatibility wasn’t an issue for them. In fact, they were perfectly ok saying that it was them who made the relationship work not the compatibility. But unhappy people went on to say that compatibility is extremely important in their relationship and they dint feel compatible with their significant one.

This study doesn’t give me any interesting facts to me except the repeated survey of psychologists. So I can conclude that there is no such person like soulmate, who just exists only on the imagination.

My own survey from my blog, I have the below result.
