Gah, stupid tests
So I'm finally taking the OKCupid test thing. And I just have to say that I really hate this kind of either-or test. I always want to qualify my answer. Gah! Bah! Fah! Hah! Wah!

If you like the test, just wait until you get to all the questions that help match you up w/other users. Oh boy! It's so much fun!!!

I'm doing that now. At least these I can skip if I don't like them.

BTW, any guesses as to which type they have me as?

If you skip a question, that provides information about how useful OKCupid users find that question, and increases the likelihood that it will be retired. So skipping the ones you like is an act of civic virtue.

That is excellent news :) (Except I _can't_ skip the one I detest the most! It never shows up with the Skip button!)

I noticed that about the logic/math puzzles. Which one is it you don't like, if you don't mind saying?

The one about flipping 3 coins, and what are the odds they will all turn up heads? I should know this, I really should, but I forget. Probability was way back in high school. I suspect it has something to do with factorials, but I'm not sure.

That's when I back-click a screen and when I prompt it for the next question it brings me to a random question, not the evil question I just wanted to skip.

The math questions

There's something strange in their math questions and corresponding grading schema. I register as less mathematical than average. Of course, it could be that I got all their arithmetic questions wrong, but suspect that it has more to do with my declared indifference to how counterparts respond.

I have to admit...

that (Random Brutal Love Master) does not, in fact, sound like a description that anyone who knows me would use.

Yeah, but that's only because you prefer Mistress.

At least that's the way I remember it.

Then again, that could've been someone else; I did have that hood on at the time.

see, questions like:

"Cell phones: good or evil?"

Should have "Yes" as one of the possible responses.

Bad writing.

And WTF? That was the third iteration on the "have you ever changed a diaper?" question I've seen today, and they're all separate questions.
