Meeting people you get along with is a bit of a conundrum, even with our super-connected society. So I’m wondering, can we boil down personality to 3 questions?
Sure, DiSC and MBTI can give you a good idea of what your personality is like with quite a few questions, and even sites like eHarmony have ways to match people who are dating (258 questions). A friend of mine started a great project, Roommatefit, that matches roommates for colleges. I asked if he could keep me in the loop as his questions evolve.
But how accurate and predictable of “getting along” can a 3 question system be? Have you ever heard of or seen a personality-matching system so short? I’ve been searching, and so far: nothing.
Learning basic Ruby on Rails has been an arduous process, having never programmed anything in my life before. I just went through the excellent Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial by Michael Hartl and I’ve now moved onto the part where I start doing things on my own. And it isn’t easy.
A friend of mine recommended I check out Twitter Bootstrap, and I love the look and much easier CSS it can do. But integrating it into Rails is proving to be a headache, as I have very little experience with front end functionality. After a few attempts I was afraid to mess things up and let it be. But don’t worry Twitter Bootstrap, I will be back to figure you out and make my pages look a whole lot nicer than they do now.
