And it worked, because it almost immediately went viral.
It has later gone through major upgrades and is now the website and app we know as Ok Cupid.
I’m positive some very bright people put some thought into this and decided on this scale, however I don’t know how “somewhat important” can be more valuable than “somewhat important”.
Keep in mind that Millward's experiment is hetero-focused, and "attractiveness" can be pretty subjective. The judges were not too far off in guessing the attraction habits in the Ok Cupid pool used for the wider United States - though I do wonder who the real people are and how they'd feel if they found out about the results...
My blog assistant sent me this link about the science behind Ok Cupid’s algorithm. 2) The way Ok Cupid weights importance is seriously out of whack (see in the video).
I watched the seven minute video and while I found it entertaining, I saw two big flaws in the way Ok Cupid purports to match you based on compatibility: 1) Ok Cupid has three pillars of their algorithm – what you think, what you want your partner to think, and how important it is to you. Simply put: what you’re attracted to and who you’re compatible with are two very different people. Irrelevant = 0 A little important = 1 Somewhat important = 10 Very important = 50 Mandatory = 250 A little important is BARELY scored higher than irrelevant.
The dating site Ok Cupid confessed to experimenting with user matches, misleading them to believe they were compatible with people they weren't.
These users said they now know why some dates were "a complete nightmare." This might be the explanation for your last bad date.
