Here’s the picture for women; red means that two types get paired up frequently, and blue means that they get paired up rarely.
(As a Spockish woman who earned degrees in physics and computer science, I can attest to this phenomenon.) But Romeo men pair up with Spock women too — so the attraction is mutual, substantiating the 8,000 romantic comedies where the passionate guy gets with the smart girl — and Snow White men pair up with Hufflepuff women.researcher and computational biologist Emma Pierson, who dug into some e Harmony-released data to produce some really interesting findings about how we describe ourselves, and how this influences who we get matched up with on the site.I think if I had to guess — I would belong in the Hufflepuff group!“There are as many forms of love,” Jane Austen wrote, “as there are moments in time.” But are there as many forms of lovers?To answer this question, we looked at the adjectives with which e Harmony users describe themselves in their profiles, “intelligent” and “funny” being the most common.We also see combinations that don’t tend to happen: Spock men avoid Hufflepuff and Snow White women (and the women avoid them too).
Just as well, because I don’t think Spock and Snow White would work out; Vulcans don’t like singing squirrels.
Of course, this is just the matching done by e Harmony’s algorithm.
Then we looked for adjectives that were often used together: did “romantic” lovers also tend to be “passionate”? In the picture below, adjectives that are placed close together are often used together.
The colored clusters of adjectives correspond to 5 types of lovers.
What type of lover you are matters: it influences who e Harmony’s algorithm matches you up with.
Using a million e Harmony matches, we looked at how often each type of lover got matched up with the other types.
