In a previous post I had reviewed Soul2Match

Now I review FindYourFaceMate

Is there a glitch at the demo of FindYourFaceMate?

I had downloaded the photos used at the demo of Soul2Match and uploaded them at the demo of FindYourFaceMate and obtained always the same result: Satisfactory.

Peter and Maria
Soul2Match predicted compatibility score of 37%
FindYourFaceMate says Satisfactory

Jake and Diana
Soul2Match predicted compatibility score of 18%
FindYourFaceMate says Satisfactory

Dennis and Esther
Soul2Match predicted compatibility score of 8%
FindYourFaceMate says Satisfactory

Anyway both Soul2Match and FindYourFaceMate are HOAXES.

I would love to see a paper showing the correlation between facial characteristics and personality traits but with LOW DISTORTION.

The "Facial Analysis" path will lead you to a dead end, like the same happened to .. guess ...
DNA matching methods
Holistic Approach
modified biorhythms
BQ check
PlentyOfFish Marriage Predictor
Behavioural recommender systems
Astrological dating
RewardingLove (Psychoanalysis as the crux of a matching system)
and others like that.

Please do remember:
The 3 latest discoveries in theories of romantic relationships development is the source to find the innovations the Industry needs:
1) Several studies showing contraceptive pills users make different mate choices, on average, compared to non-users.
2) Behavioural Matching recommends people based on the type of person you have sent emails to, replied to, clicked on in search results and gone on dates with, but .... persons/people often report/select partner preferences that are not compatible with their choices in real life, that is why Behavioural Recommender Systems / Recommendation Engines perform so bad.
3) compatibility is all about STRICT personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment.
*personality measured with a normative test.
*similarity: there are different ways to calculate similarity, it depends on how mathematically is defined.
