Misuse of normative tests by some online dating sites

BIG5 normative personality test is OBSOLETE 

The 8 tips to innovate in the Online Dating Industry!

The next wave of innovation!

The only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry is using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different languages to assess personality of members, or a proprietary test with exactly the same traits of the 16PF5 and expressing compatibility with eight decimals (needs a quantized pattern comparison method, part of pattern recognition by cross-correlation, to calculate similarity between prospective mates.)
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
It is all about achieving the eighth decimal!
With 8 decimals, you have more precision than any person could achieve by searching on one's own, but the only way to achieve the eighth decimal is using analysis and correlation with quantized patterns.
Without offering the NORMATIVE16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.

All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo



  1. I would disagree. Personally I like Katch app and idea of using videos instead of photos.
    No test in the world will substitute the first few moments of human interaction that decide whether we are attracted to another person or not. This is precisely why Katch community is growing so fast.

    1. What is important in attracting people to one another IS NOT important in making couples happy.

  2. I agree with that, but then again, if people didn't feel attracted to each other in a first place, they might never have a chance to find out if they would have been happy together..
    Online dating services have a long way to go as success rate for couple at the moment is less than 1%..
    I did read your suggestions and they are interesting.

  3. I should probably add that I am the person behind Katch app - the one you reference to as a hoax at the very top of this page..

    We were discussing various algorithms for compatibility, and to keep things 'simple' at the start off we have introduced the 7 seconds videos that makes it possible to mimic 'first impressions' that we read into when we first meet someone new in real life.

    I have used dating sites years ago for my personal life, and I have to say I found it somewhat doubting to fill in pages and pages of profiling data offered by some companies that you mention. At the same time the likes of Tinder turn search for someone special into 'window shopping'..


    1. The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY.
