As a quick follow-up to my previous post on OKCupid’s estimation of my personality, I decided to answer a dozen more questions on their site while reexamining some of my earlier answers. After doing so, it looks like my personality analysis has shifted. Now with 355 questions answered, my chart looks like this:

Interestingly, OkCupid seems even more confident about my supposed arrogance, aggressiveness, and introversion. However, the site no longer believes that I’m independent, less organized, less compassionate, and less progressive. What’s strange though is that I don’t remember answering any questions dealing with being independent or organized. Compassion and progressiveness can be addressed through questions on ethics, lifestyle, and politics. But I’m baffled by the complete reversal on my perceived level of organization. Tragically, the site seems even more confident than ever that I’m less giving. Great! So now anyone visiting my profile will think I’m arrogant and selfish, both very attractive qualities in a date.

I’m going to continue experimenting with the questions on the site to see how much it changes, hoping to narrow down what causes these shifts.
