    Another helpful info-graphic from OK Cupid databases. These are the top 1000 words used in profiles (I assume that common pronouns and such are deleted). The larger the text, the more commonly used. The darker the color, the more popular the people who use that word.

    Our homework:
    1. Why aren't the yoga, surfing, sailing, swimming and skiing forums more popular than they are?

    2. How would these words be different if they only searched gay profiles?

    Green are men, red are women.

    Well, I guess that's sort of what the graphic shows: The most popular profiles contain the most-commonly-used words. I.E., their profile text is just like every one else's. If they did a correlation plot of popular word use vs profile hits, it might not show any trend.

    Silly me. It's probably straight-up (popularity) = (sq. in. of skin displayed)/(body fat %)

    Kinda funny how "fuck" is more prevalent with females.

    On second look, I don't think the size of the text means anything. They're just selecting from the 1000 most commonly used words. Just to make it look pretty.

    LMAO:

    Average attractiveness rank of people who's profile contains the word

    "Cats" = 274
    "My cats" = 766

    But where is the causality here?

    I would love to see how some of these words are being used. Like teeth and physics and homeland.

    Twenty or thirty years ago it surely would have included unicorns on the women's side.

    Notice how all of the science fiction and fantasy related words, though common, are out in the unattractive fringe.
