This is how he loves you!
Someone’s Myers-Briggs personality type can tell you quite about about how they are in relationships.
It’s easy to tell when you’ve fallen head over heels in love: your heart beats faster, you smile on the inside and out, and you see the world with new optimism. You might even feel it in your gut that he’s the one.
It’s much harder to know if you’re significant other feels the exact same way about you. He may have told you that he loves you. But, does he love you enough to commit to forever?
Men — just like women — outwardly communicate their feelings and their level of attachment in a variety of ways. How will you know for sure that you are on the same path to the altar?
One way to tell if he’s going to commit is by sizing up his Myers-Briggs personality type. Each type is made of four preference types, and each has opposing characteristics. For example, your boyfriend may get his energy from inward reflection and quiet times alone or with you (Introversion), or he may get a charge from interacting in groups (Extroversion).
His decision-making process may rely heavily on thinking and objectivity versus feelings and the unique situation. He may gather information systematically by using facts (sensing) as opposed to his intuition (Intuition). Finally, he may prefer to plan and get closure (Judging), or he may like to go with the flow (perceiving).
Each facet — Introversion (I) or Extroversion (E), Sensing (S) or Intuition (N), Thinking (T) or Feeling (F), and Judging (J) or Perceiving (P) — contribute to how he interacts with the world, including you! And, depending on his four-letter type, he will show his love and desire to commit in specific ways.

Here are some signs your guy is ready to commit based on his Extroverted personality type:
This easy-going, free-wheeling type will be the last to commit, but if you captivate him, he’ll keep his promises. If you’re the woman who has won his heart, he will shower you with practical gifts, rescue you from a crisis and be there in your time of need. He will act off balance, uncharacteristically awkward for this charismatic type, and he will tell only you how he feels. If he says he’s committed, he means it.
If you’ve become his serious girlfriend, you’ll notice an ESFJ’s warmth and attention to your every need. He’ll act like your biggest cheerleader and make you feel good about yourself. ESFJs are very sociable yet traditional, too, so when he proudly brings you into his inner circle of friends and family, and regularly tags you on social media, you’ll know you’re headed for the altar.
This guy is likely to be a big flirt! To the ENTP, relationships are one of life’s many triumphs. He will try to impress you with his cleverness or tease you in one breath, then get philosophical about the meaning of life in another. Joint accomplishments will be critical to him. When he finally gets vulnerable and opens up to you, and wants to be part of your personal growth journey, you know he’s fascinated enough to make you his Mrs.
