You've all heard about the legendary match making site that is eventually going to open up a version for homosexual couples in the next few months, I assume. Well, turns out that it is free, and the process that they put you through to match you up is a massive online personality quiz (a kind of quiz that I have a long history with). Buuuut...that's about the bulk of it for some people. Let me explain.
It serves as a Big Five Personality Test, determining agreeableness, openness, extraversion, emotional stability, and conscientiousness according to your own self-assessments, giving you those results after spending a good 40 minutes slogging through the massive thing. But, they are assholes, and admit at the end of taking the huge damn thing that they are so particular about their methods of matching you up with other people, that they outright refuse to give ANY matches to 1 out of 5 people because they just don't precisely match anyone. What complete and utter bullcrap. Dearest eHarmony: you aren't selling yourself as a personality test, of which I have taken at least a dozen before and had no desire to take another. I wanted to be given profiles of random ass internet people who are within a 200 mile radius and who are roughly similar to myself. That's it. I probably wouldn't even have given a damn after seeing the results, because I usually never do. But, you couldn't even do the sole thing that you advertise site as doing, and admit that you actively don't do it 20% of the time. Only doing your job for 80% customers....what the hell is this, the DMV?
Whatever. It's a mild annoyance. And getting the personality test results, that explains why being a self-centered, chronically shy, unemotional, and ever-apathetic bastard is a good thing was the highlight of my day.
Oh, and pornography wins the poll. Lust and philosophy were a close second. My favorite, anal fissures, went shamefully ignored.
