Likebetter Knows About You

Likebetterlogo
Likebetter is a fun way to kill some downtime at the office. The new game is the brainchild of Pairwise, the same company behind the very similar MoreHotter.

The concept is pretty simple, given two photographs, which do you like better? The site then attempts to calculate what your choices say about you. Whenever the site thinks it knows something about you the brain turns pink and clicking it will reveal Likebetter’s observations.

The extrapolations based on your answers are a bit far fetched, and yet can be creepily accurate. For instance, based on my choices of only five sets of photos Likebetter guessed that I lived in an apartment or condo, which is true. I went back through the photos and tried to figure out what might be the reasoning behind that, but I came up empty.

It is just a game though, and it’s wildly inaccurate as often as it is correct (not only do I not watch a lot of television I don’t even own one).

Some of the picture combinations are bizarre, like the one below, and it’s tough to say what that choice might say about you.

As with anything remotely like a personality test I tried to game Likebetter to see if I could control what it thought about me, but for the most part Likebetter’s image are too random for that. Really, what does it say about you if you choose a fat Elvis impersonator over Adam Sandler?

LikeBetter is hardly earth shattering, but it’s a silly and fun way to waste a bit of the company time.
