Now it happens that I studied statistics and experimental design during my two-year stint as a psych major, back when I still thought I wanted to become a shrink. As a result, it occurred to me that if you collected enough data points about the taste of an individual, you could easily put together a test that would provide a fairly accurate measure of the extent to which the test-taker resembled the test-maker. It was this insight that inspired me to create the Teachout Cultural Concurrence Index, a battery of 100 questions that measures how closely your taste agrees with mine.I am in 62% concurrence (although I had to throw out a couple of questions -- the only dance question I could really express a preference on was Astaire/Kelly).
Give it a try, and mull this: What sorts of choices would show up on a Cultural Concurrence list for you? Maybe Top Gun versus Days of Thunder?
