About This Quiz

Human behaviour is simultaneously terribly predictable and incredibly chaotic. Reams exist, written on the subjects of human cognition and decision making. Philosophers and scientists spent thousands of years attempting to define and explain how and why humans do what we do. Still, no one has yet accomplished this task sufficient enough to accurately predict choices as simple as which color of identical candy one will pick.

What can be said with some degree of certainty is that certain choices correlate directly with other choices. The decision to get a facial tattoo, for example, never coexists with the decision to go into investment banking. Understanding and predicting human behavior is something we have evolved to do, but rarely are the tools we use subconsciously put to use deliberately and scientifically.

Taste is one of the least predictable parts of human psychology. Rather than attempting to predict taste by watching the predictable choices one makes, seeing one creative choice seems the likelier path to predicting other decisions made with the heart. Films may say something about how one views morality. Clothes say something about one's feelings of self-worth and how they want to be seen. Music remains one of the most personal and least explicable taste choices humans make, and we believe that with some information on your tastes with regards to music, we can say what it says about your taste in men.
