This test measures the overall desirability of a person, either male or female, as a long-term partner. This test can
thus be used to help match people according to their general quality, so that people are less likely to
painfully break up later when it becomes apparent that one partner is too good for the other. If you currently have a partner, then you can answer the questions of this test with the traits of yourself and
your partner alike.
This test is not just about what qualities people LIKE, but more so about darwinian desirability, meaning
what traits are most conducive to living well in the physical sense, not merely those which grant perverse but
ultimately self-destructive pleasure. However, subjective desirability IS a major factor in this test, particularly in the
category of physique, insofar as it does not conflict with objective desirability. There is
however substantial overlap between subjective and objective desirability in some respects,
particularly in physical traits, due to evolutionary psychology.
This test contains many questions (94), but all
are simple and straight-forward. There are 5 pages total. Some questions have higher value than others. The scores are percentages.
There are 3 variables: general desirability, male-specific desirability, and female-specific desirability.
General desirability is the main factor. Gender-specific desirability
is worth about 1/4-1/3 as much as general desirability. If you want to create a single final score, you can multiply your gender-specific desirability score by 0.3 and add it to your general desirability score.
To give you an idea of how you compare to others: The general desirability scores vary relatively little, and
the gender-specific desirability scores vary greatly. The gender-specific desirability scores usually range from 25 to 75. The average general desirability score is about 68,
and the general desirability scores usually fall between 55 and 75.
Changes to the test since publication: I added 10 more questions, changed 1 question, added 2 answers to existing questions, and changed the value of 1 question.
