Rating: ★★★★★

My Personality by David Stillwell administers a brief psychological exam that is based off of a real psychological personality questionnaire used in actual scientific research. It offers a brief explanation of your results and allows you to compare your personality to your friends. I answered a minimal amount of questions to get an idea for how it works. You can answer over a hundred questions to get a more accurate psychological profile. As with any app of this nature, treat it truly as Just for Fun. That said, I felt it made a pretty accurate assessment of my personality.

When you’re done, it updates your profile with a nice little graph depicting elements of your personality. I really give them props for not spamming my profile page with unnecessaryily large banners. As their about page states,

MyPersonality is against Facebook spam and does not send any newsfeed stories or notifications without your prior approval. That means no mandatory “invite your friends” pages either!

You’re results are by default public and listed in their public diretory. Privacy settings can be changed to be more restrictive. Not only that, you can delete your personality profile, a feature most apps overlook.

Clicking on the “Compare to Friends” tab reveals my girlfriend is my soul mate! That’s a nice start. They apply a more involved formula for calculating your similarities, so it’s not just based on averages.

What makes this app also useful for dating is they offer a comprehensive personality search engine. You can find personality twins or specify you’re own criteria such as selecting from different personality traits (Openness, Conscientiousness, Extroversion, Agreeableness, Neuroticism) or various adjectives like calm, sensitive or reliable (many more). A quick search for my own personality twins pulled up 40 or so in my network.

I had a lot of fun playing with this app and would highly recommend it.

Flirtable

Rating: ★★★★☆

Flirtable by Frengo is the ultimate Mass Flirt application. The way it works is simple: for every friend you invite, you get 20 flirts; for every profile you view or message, you get a single flirt; but for every person that flirts with you, you get 50 flirts! Flirts are like a currency. The more $$$ you have, the more people will notice you (the more your profile will be shown).

Users can customize their profiles by adding a custom tag line and selecting who they are interested in flirting with, such as Women aged “20-25″. Noticeably missing, however, is the ability to restrict the proximity of your flirtation. So, you might meet the girl of your dreams, but half way around the world. Guess that shouldn’t matter too much!

Their application screams. No lag whatsoever. You can quickly flip through hundreds of pictures just by clicking flirt or skip. Clicking on “Flirt” doesn’t require you to send any messages. It just adds the person to your list of flirts.

There’s not too much I would change about the application. It works really well as it stands. One thing that is ridiculously obnoxious is that they flood your mini feed EVERYTIME you send a flirt. In the future, I hope they add support to limit profiles by proximity and add more profile options to set yourself apart. Also, a “back” link would be nice, if you were a little quick on the trigger.
