Just wondering nia.

for example, you are jiak potato type. Then your wife is speak Chinese type.

maybe your EQ is sibei low very direct, but her EQ is really power, no war, know how to make everyone happy diplomatically.

maybe you are really chill with your kids but wife is discipline master, whack their tuition etc.

Yup. That is correct.

You need a spouse who can complement you .

For example, I am a thinker.
So i need a do-er to complement me.

if both thinker, gg.
if both do-er.. still ok ... but not as good as 1 thinker 1 doer.

that's why need a do-er! :)

so spouse must complement each other.
so you need to know your strength and weakness and find someone that complements you.

you can find do-ers among all the JHBs and ATBs.

those who took the effort to come out to find opportunities in Singapore from their homeland is confirmed do-er.

It will work only for a short while leh because they are still “new”.

Once they are familiar with things, they will rise up to become a thinker also.

I'm a doer. I don't want a thinker as a partner. Only know how to talk but don't do is not good. Both doers and can discuss and agree on tasks get things done.

opposite might be good in some ways…

like one is dominant and other is submissive. one is saver the other is spender

but bad in others
e.g Religion
