  • So Greg and I have been in a relationship for over 10 years now

  • And we've always wondered whether or not you could

  • scientifically evaluate how compatible we are or others actually are. And it turns out that researchers are doing just that. They are looking at couples biology

  • neurology and genetics to figure out how compatible they actually are. So we decided to take this test and find out if we're actually

  • meant to be together. The company that does this is called Instinct Chemistry which starts by taking a swab of DNA

  • We're going to analyze our oxytocin levels,

  • serotonin receptors, HLA genes and dr4 genes

  • Oxytocin is often called the love hormone

  • and is related to bonding affection and empathy. There are actually two versions of the oxytocin receptors

  • gene: the A and the G variant. If you have the G variant it means that the

  • Oxytocin fits in perfectly to the receptor. So when you're stimulated by it you have a big response

  • but if you have the A variant it's kind of like a lock-and-key that doesn't quite fit

  • perfectly and so the response is actually a lower stimulation from oxytocin. The oxytocin receptors

  • related a lot to empathy. There's affection, but it's also

  • how well you are able to interpret how the other person's feeling. Okay. You are actually

  • G. Oww!

  • Okay, and you are actually the A. You're the A.

  • A. So, what does that mean? Does that mean I'm flustered, it's hard for me. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm literally forgeting about everything what we were talking about.

  • You don't get the same kick out of those moments that would release oxytocin. Yeah but I think I'm empathetic. No you are, I'm sure it doesn't mean you're not.

  • Although like seriously f*** you.

  • If you are a thinker it's good to sort of communicate verbally a lot about what you're thinking because it may not come across as serious.

  • Ow my god are you serious. That's his f****** thing.

  • I'm always like I want to talk about this, and your like, you always want to talk about this.

  • That's crazy! Exactly, a listener would be more reading the emotion reading, reading the situation. Yeah. They don't need the language to interpret whats going on. Oww... Yeah makes sense.

  • So we give this combination the thinker in the listener at 75 percent.

  • And that's because I mean you were saying that you're very good at talking and expressing your emotions.

  • But in some cases the thinker is not. I think there is a party that thinks you could problobly, maybe be better off with a listener sometimes. Maybe, maybe?

  • Many of you are probably wondering if the fact that Mitch and I are gay is going to affect our results so we actually

  • asked Dr. Seabrook

  • what she thought. A lot of the research that has been done has been on

  • Heterosexual couples. What we find is that there is a similar trend?

  • So I wouldn't take your results and throw them out the window. They are meaningful.

  • If a gay couple contacts us and says they want to take the test we subsidize the edge late

  • Because there isn't a lot of that research out there

  • It's true like this is something that could be so heteronormative

  • And it's just nice to know that brilliant scientists are not making it fully that way.

  • Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that contributes to feelings of happiness and well-being and we each have two alleles for the serotonin transporter

  • gene. If you end up having both short alleles

  • you're actually worse at having your cells reuptake serotonin, which ultimately characterizes you as more emotional.

  • Which means you feel things way more strongly?

  • Whether or not they're good or bad in both directions. If you have long long or long short allele combination

  • You're actually much more even-tempered and practical. Okay, so what do you think you think you're lying?

  • I'm lying because I feel like a lot of times in relationship, I'm like, okay

  • let's look at the bigger picture and let's chill out, and I think that you're short cuz they're like your firey.

  • And you would feel really good, too

  • Yeah

  • I feel like if you had to be one or the other like I I definitely like identifying more as a short

  • and I feel like you are long. Okay let's find out. You both carry long and short, you both are heterozygotes.

  • Okay, so you are actually both practical. Okay? Oww... I'm sorry

  • So we're hetero in this case. Yeah, it's the only time someones ever told me that. We gave you a 100% on that. Yeah girl!

  • Everyone has HLA genes and they control the makeup of the bacteria on your skin.

  • HLA fragments are also involved with the formation of your odor because they are in your sweat, and your saliva as well

  • So we actually sniff out diverse bacteria and diverse genes in our lovers so that the offspring that we create will have a more diverse

  • Immune system so as a side note obviously Greg and I aren't gonna our own biological offspring together

  • But scientists are actually finding that the same mechanisms that affect attraction in straight couples are actually applicable to gay couples as well

  • So the better somebody smells to you the more likely they are to have different genes and the more likely you are to have that

  • physical attraction with the person, The average couple when they take this test scores between about seventy-five and eighty-four percent on compatibility.

  • Okay, so you guys actually scored?

  • Seventy-six. Oww...okay, okay! We're an average couple. That's better than having to leave you.

  • Next up was our dopamine receptor 4 gene. There are two common variants in this gene either

  • Seven are or four are if your seven are it means that you are more risky

  • You're more likely to jump out of a plane and go skydiving or gamble or have an affair

  • It's actually known as the promiscuity gene

  • But if you are a four are you are gonna think before you act you are way less risky.

  • Okay. So neither of you are seven are plus. Okay. That's kind of what I thought

  • Yeah, we're not as I was like impulsive yeah

  • I'm not that promiscuous

  • And we're just like you know we sit at home and like we want a golden retriever for a compatibility score

  • We actually give that a 75% a seven are pluses brings the excitement in there that is nice actually

  • that's why we never leave the house.

  • And I feel like the risky behavior was probably just cuz we were young. And we're not yound any more. We should drink so much more, it was alcohol.

  • So we should drink more, okay thank you. Okay so, are we compatible. I don't feel like we're breaking up today. No, overall compatible, right? Yes, so overall you are the average couple.

  • Can't hope for anything better, it's great to find out that we are averagely compatible

  • But I think the most important thing that we took away from this is it felt a lot like therapy we were able to learn

  • about ourselves from a physiological and mental level

  • And we're able to relate in a different way as to why maybe we argue or as to why maybe some parts of our relationship?

  • Are harder at certain times it was really nice to be in an environment where they were looking for queer people

  • And they really want us to be a part of it

  • And we did feel like it definitely made a lot of sense to us and that is important

  • We really want to thank the instant chemistry kit team it was such a cool experience for us, so definitely check it out

  • We'll put links in the description for you

  • Go do it, make sure subscribe for more videos, and we'll see you next Thursday for a new animated video. Peace!
