People who say they like the taste of beer correlate highly with people who will have sex on a first date.

"Do you prefer the people in your life to be simple or complex?" is useful for determining a person's politics.
Complex: Liberal.

People who do not mind spelling and grammar mistakes are more likely to be religious.

And the three questions most useful in determining compatibility based on same answers are:
"Do you like horror movies?"
"Have you ever traveled around another country alone?"
"Wouldn't it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?"

This is correct IF the labeling should match the graph before it in OkCupid's blog, on which it is based.



I based these percentage values on the colors of two of the other charts, which matched each other.

54- means 0-55.
