    Hmm, since I never had much contact to my mum I'll go with my mum and my maternal grandparents, since I grew up there when she was at work. My grandma is definitely acts of service while my mum and my grandpa both are acts of service as well as words of affirmation. I on the other hand scored pretty different on a test I took and it is kinda right. Gifts and service mean almost nothing to me. Quality time and affirmation are important but mostly I'm a physical touch person, so nope...I didn't learn that from my family...obviously.

    9 Words of Affirmation
    8 Acts of Service
    7 Quality Time
    5 Receiving Gifts
    1 Physical Touch

    This is pretty accurate... although I don't consider myself to be a person that cares all that much about gifts. Then again, it would make me feel special and cared about to randomly receive a thoughtful gift out of the blue.

    Words of Affirmation being at the top is spot on for me. I really place a lot of value on being told I'm loved and appreciated, and I do the same for those I care about. I randomly write letters telling those I love how much they mean to me. Sometimes poems if I'm feeling especially sentimental. Although it's possible it doesn't mean as much to them as it would to me if I received something like that.

    Definitely glad I checked this thread out, it's really interesting.

    Seems like no one actually cares about the gift part.

    11 Words of Affirmation
    9 Quality Time
    5 Acts of Service
    4 Physical Touch
    1 Receiving Gifts

    Words of afirmation are a really intense part for me, even more than quality time. Quality time can be enjoyable and admirable, but those words are what get me.

    And, yeah, no one cares about what they mentioned as gifts.

    I used to place little value in gifts until Christmas last year when I decided to make some for my employers. It took a lot of my time, it was expensive and stressful because I wanted them to be perfect. And then I was so nervous about actually GIVING them that I had bad stomach problems that morning. After that ordeal, I've changed how I look at gifts.

    Would you say gifts are a part of your love language now?

    I really think I would. Some gifts will still mean nothing to me or will rub me the wrong way. For instance, my aunt gives me a $2 Instant Scratch-It for Christmas every year and expects that I give her 50% of any big money I win from it. That's always gonna mean nothing to me. In fact, I take offence to it.

    But other gifts? Especially something handmade? I'm going to cherish them a lot from now on.

    EDIT: I just redid the test. The first time, last year, Gifts was down the bottom. Now my scores are:

    9 Quality Time
    8 Acts of Service
    8 Receiving Gifts
    3 Words of Affirmation
    2 Physical Touch

    Really helpful! I'm an ENTP and I'm definitely a "Quality Time" person. I wonder if some personalities are more inclined toward one love language or another.
