New App Personality Match Tests Your Compatibility With Family & Friends ?

"The unique personality match process used by the app was created by Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs, who based their system on the work of psychologist Carl Jung and his research into personality traits."

FYI, that is an ipsative test, not a normative one.

Please remember: 
Ipsative tests are based on forced choice questions and responses. Each choice is scored. These scores can only represent the relative strengths of the person being tested and cannot be compared to any other individuals. Such tests can typically be identified in the marketplace by the test asking the person to ‘describe themselves’.
Unfortunately, all ipsative tests (self-descriptive questionnaires) like Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) or DISC (Dominance, Inducement, Submission, and Compliance) or the Swiss 16PT are obsolete.

Normative tests measure quantifiable characteristics on individual scales. These scales can vary independently. Also the scores can measure the characteristics of an individual against confirmed patters of normality (e.g. normal distribution or Gaussian distribution). Normative testing allows people to be compared to particular groups, populations, or jobs.
Normative testing generally has a higher validity than ipsative.
