I can´t log into terminal on fedora 23

When I try logging into terminal writing, "su -l", it asks for my password - and after that when I´ve written that one, the terminal won´t approve it...

I suppose that my password is the one I have written in my profile in "Network"..?

If you trying to change user to root then it is:

su -

Then you root password.

I have solved the problem by re-installing my fedora. Maybe i just have written a too short/simple root-password the first time I installed the system... Maybe the terminal wouldn´t approve it because of the shortness...
