New Quiz Will Guess Your Age, Gender and Salary Based on the Apps You Use
Sean and I tried this little quiz this morning on the air with our listeners. It wasn't very accurate!
When Sean took the quiz, it correctly identified him, but when Laurie, our listener, took it, the only thing it got correct was her gender.
Some researchers from Aalto University in Finland released a study that linked apps to your age, your gender, your income, and your marriage status. Then the Washington Post took their results, put together a quiz where you answer whether or not you have different apps and they predict if you're male or female, over or under 32, married or single, and make more or less than $52,000 a year.
They say it's between 61% and 82% accurate, which means they should probably get three of those four things right.
Here's a link to the quiz - take it for yourself and see if your apps correctly identify you!
