Interests? Well, perhaps.

Based on the lj interests lists of those who share my more unusual interests, the interests suggestion meme thinks I might be interested in
1. fantasy score: 17 Well, yeah, I'm surprised that's not there already
2. reading score: 16 Duh
3. science fiction score: 13 I thought that was there already, too.
4. chocolate score: 13 um, well ... I like it but can't really eat much of it because of migraines. Hardly an interest
5. cats score: 11 Yes, I like cats, obviously seeing as I have one, but not, you know cats like other LJ people
6. poetry score: 11 YES
7. music score: 10 YES
8. tea score: 9 Not really - I don't drink much tea. I'm a coffee person.
9. cooking score: 9 YES
10. art score: 9 well, yes
11. sf score: 9 um... haven't we covered that one?

14. harry potter score: 8 um... no.
15. anime score: 7 maybe - this is something I don't really know much about

I did it and the interests it gave me were basically the profile of a radical black lesbian. When I am a Green Party white het woman. It also tossed up writers I like but am not passionate about. (e.g., Audre Lorde) And some names of Indian celebrities because I post too much about Freddie Mercury. (which probably also tips me over to gay interests) - I friended a handful of LJers of color who posted interesting things during IBARW.

So although their results were wrong, the logic links the program makes are kind of interesting.

I bet you got tea because you posted about England.

ETA: but no, that's not why you got tea, because I reread the program explanation. Why did you get tea? How weird.

I think it's based on your interests rather than your posts. And it looks at shared interests of people who share _your_ most obscure interests. Which actually makes a kind of sense, because if I ever feel like surfing for someone new to read I usually click on one of my more unusual interests (figuring that someone who likes Moomins, bearded collies AND old roses must be interesting...) So presumably the other people who like Moomins and bearded collies are tea drinkers :-)

And cats are a fairly safe bet, because LJ is heavily cattish rather than doggish.

This seems like some profound truth about the universe and internet communications, but I don't know why.

Maybe people who spend a lot of time on computers are more likely to have a pet that doesn't go out? ;-)

Apparently my interests don't have enough in common with anyone else to get a result back. I don't know what that says about me!
