Finally the perfect dating algorithm? Of course NOT, Big Five test is OBSOLETE.

SAW IT last August 2012!

"... MyPersonality app enabled users to fill out different psychometric questionnaires, including a handful of psychological questions from the Big Five personality questionnaire (“I panic easily,“ “I contradict others”). Based on the evaluation, users received a “personality profile”—individual Big Five values—and could opt-in to share their Facebook profile data with the researchers. "


The Big Five normative personality test is obsolete, it has been proven as an incomplete and incorrect model of personality.
The HEXACO (a.k.a. Big Six) is another oversimplification. Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the
Big Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead.

Very easy to copycat eHarmony, but very difficult to innovate: a 100 times better algorithm than eHarmony.
