"Personality-career match" I found this term on careerkey.org.

So, this compound noun tells you about a match between your personality and major. So, I surmised that the rule here is "noun-noun match."

In this sense, can I say

1. Partner-personality match.

2. Computer-preference match.

3. Muscle-building-program match.

    I suppose you could. But the example "personality-career match" is an odd usage of noun-noun as adjective. I would have rendered it as "personality/career match". – Brian Hitchcock Aug 25 '15 at 6:48

Yes, all the ones you have listed can be said.
