Match.com Personality Tests

I am a charter member of match.com, because the folks who started it hung around the ba.singles Usenet news group, and so did I. In return for beta testing and adding some real names and faces to their start-up database, they gave me a free membership for life.

The new owners have graciously continued to honor that. I don't get all the new features, but they didn't take away any either.

I haven't been online for a LONG time, mostly because I have not revceived one single email message in more than 2 years - but with a face and figure like mine, that isn't surprising.

So I logged in this morning since it was way too hectic to Face Reality[TM] and they had two new (to me) personality tests.

Here is the short form of the results they emailed to me:

Personality Test

Your Qualities

  • Outgoing, but shy sometimes too
  • Clear thinker
  • Balance work and play
  • Focus on the possibilities in life

You have a special zeal for life

You're smart, insightful, and successful in your career. You're honest and straightforward about what you think and aren't overly influenced by what other people may think. You have a talent for seeing beyond the details in life. So you have a vision for the future and always are searching to find love and a sense of "balance" in your life. You have a lot of good friends who enjoy your natural charm and funny stories. But you're not someone who "wears his heart on his sleeve" so even those closest to you don't always know how you feel. Still, your masculine and dependable nature will draw people who'll invest the time to get to know you.

Quirks women notice

Like all men, you have your strengths as well as your quirks and shortcomings. Ultimately, you want to find someone who will love and accept you "warts and all." Though you have lots of friends, it's important to have at least one person who understands.

  • You're a strong-willed man and at times people see you as being bossy or controlling.

  • You're such a straightforward and honest man that at times what you say comes across a little harsh and insensitive.

  • At times you can become so focused on ideas, plans for the future, or a new project that you lose track of the day to day details of life (like doing laundry, balancing your checkbook, or even eating).

You may notice

It takes time for you to let your guard down emotionally.

You have a lot going on in your head and can forget to take care of practical things.

Physical Appearance Preference Test

Favorite Qualities

  • Your choices suggest a woman over 45 may be a little old for you
  • You seemed interested in dating a woman at least 25 or older
  • Pretty women
  • Sharp, narrow chins
  • Round-shaped faces
  • Black hair

Favorite Looks

You seem to have a thing for "Fiery Redheads." Although pretty rare, this type caught your eye in the photo test. Their deep (even auburn) red hair frames their beautiful, fair skin. You probably even have an appreciation for freckles! As the name suggests, this type tends to convey a sense of energy and confidence that you have to be around. Maybe that's why 1 in 3 men (29%) find these redheads very appealing.

There's a reason why you can't keep your eyes off a beauty pageant. We describe a lot of the women you also found attractive as "Beauty Queens," because of their flawless beauty and winning smiles. These women usually have long, shiny hair setting off a face that is either rectangular or heart-shaped. They have very feminine features like thin noses, big eyes, and full lips, conveying a strong, confident look rather than looking delicate or fragile. Even though they look like the "Girl Next Door," they tend to look mature for their age and lack the "cutesy" appearance of more "girlish" women. Although very popular to look at, most men are sort of intimidated by this type, which is probably why only 1 in 3 (31%) say they specifically seek out these women.

Favorite Face Type

Faces known scientifically as "Ecto-Mesomorphs" repeatedly caught your eye. Women express this type in two ways. One version has a rectangular face shape that is long and narrow. The other type's face shape is often compared to a diamond or a heart, because it is wide at the cheeks and then has a sharply angled jaw. Ecto-Mesomorph women have either delicate pointed chins or chins that are slightly squared-off or rounded at the base. This "classic" face type is one of the most idealized for women and can be found on most movie and music idols. These women also tend to have lean, but shapely, builds when they're young. About 57% of other men especially prefer women with this face type.
