was this correct in your case?

personally i can't imagine someone who prefers simple people. how boring! and of course i'm a liberal so it worked for me

this is from a fascinating okcupid article. another interesting conclusion from the data:
"Do spelling and grammar mistakes annoy you?"

'no'—i.e. is okay with bad grammar and spelling—the odds of him or her being at least moderately religious is slightly better than 2:1.
of course religious people don't mind mistakes - they are stupid! so they make them and can't recognize them when they see them anyway, and their whole belief system is based on a giant mistake. makes perfect sense to me :)

this is a chart from an article on their site a year ago - notice the lower the interest in religion, the higher the writing proficiency :)

Do you not realize that there are people on this forum who consider themselves "religious"- me being one? I know that you think religion, God, etc. is stupid, but to state your opinion as absolute/factual information is pretty disrespectful


Also, I appreciate simplicity in life but prefer people to be complex



As for the writing/religion graph.. it says he got that information from user profiles? Sounds a bit risqué to me

it said that you were 2:1 to be liberal. that's not the same thing as saying you are liberal.

Simple makes me think of "stupid."
Complex makes me think of "has issues."

Wonder what a psychiatric. . . psychologic. . . word association person think of that.
But yeah, couldn't answer it, because gut reaction was "Neither, stupid question."

I voted simple ,because you don't know what is to believe with complex people.
Let me explain, complex people tend to be a lot more problematic ,and difficult
to live with since they have a tendency for supremacy in what respects household
decisions and conversation-relation interactions.

I have lived my entire life with complex people in my family(and we are a lot) , including myself, and
honestly all they do is argue about stupid shit and, be assholes to each others. Il rather be in a farm, riding
horses, and chewing tobacco, than being in the city as a douchebag citizen talking like a parrot about
politics to other parrots. Don't get involved, Giu la testa, gg, etc....

I picked complex because I like watching how people around me live daily, it's pretty fun. As for the whole political/religious view, i really don't care about those aspects in my life at the moment. =/

I voted complex, but Django's life sounds like a good life. Also joe, I too find your renouncement of all religion to be offensive. Not that your opinion is cruel, but your choice of words were.
