Frequently Asked Questions

Where did the idea for Birdy come from?

Juliette Swann discovered the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) after a failed 5-year relationship with someone who was, unlike her, completely disconnected from his emotions. She recognized herself as an ESFJ, and realized how much she had been trying to be someone else. As she read the words and learned more about her personality, she began accepting her true self.

Shortly after Juliette broke her spine in a riding accident, while recovering and processing what could have happened, her perspective on life was completely changed. She realized that there was no time to pretend to be someone else. Not only that, she realized that she probably wasn’t the only one who was confused about identity or in relationships with the wrong people for the wrong reasons. She decided to launch Birdy to help others learn about and embrace themselves, but also to create a safe space for people to connect with each other in a meaningful and healthy way.

How Birdy is different from other Dating Apps?

Birdy places your personality compatibility at the forefront by using an algorithm that connects the most compatible users with each other and let’s them get to know each other better through the personality “stories” (or collective “Story Books”).

Who is Birdy for?

Birdy is for everyone (above 18). We welcome people of all races, genders, sexualities, cultures, and backgrounds. We only ask our users to be respectful of other people’s identities, to learn about them and try to understand them better instead of judging them.

How do users match on Birdy?

Birdy uses the cognitive functions behind the personality types and a compatibility theory to suggest Story Books to the users. (We can’t go into more detail since Birdys algorithm is proprietary.)

What do I pay for?

The app itself is free to download and use. You can pay for premium features or buy a subscription for premium access and extra benefits.

Do you have to pay to take the test?

No. Taking the test is completely free. We only ask for your email address so we can send you your results and other interesting information about your personality type.

Why did you choose the Myers-Briggs?

Birdys personality test is loosely inspired by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), in the sense that it is also based on Carl Jung’s theory of personality types. Though, in our case, we focus on the cognitive functions behind the 4 letters and the compatibility between those functions.

How accurate is your test?

The accuracy of the test depends on the test taker themselves. We are constantly improving our test for the most accuracy. But personality tests are subjective and based on self reflection. Therefore the result is only as accurate as the test taker is aware of themselves and honest in their answers. The test takers mood, surroundings, experiences, and expectations can all influence the result. Because of that we are establishing a verification process within Birdy to confirm each user’s type. Honest conversations with close friends and family about your strengths and weaknesses can also help confirm your personality type.

How does the app work?

Users create a profile on the app by answering basic questions (name, age, location), adding their personality type, and creating a Personality Story Book that shows who they really are and what they care about.
Afterwards the user can look at Story Books of other users and decide based on core values, interests, and personality if they want to continue getting to know someone. When two users (Birdys) “like” each other’s Story Books they can begin to chat.
