Calculation of the matching % considers all fully matching (green) and partially matching (yellow) answers against not matching (red) answers (out of all attempted answers).

Weightage of partially matching (yellow) answers also consider the number of choices or priorities matching in that question. There are 3 types of questions for mind-matching in app:

  1. Single answer questions:
    • If the selected option of both users is the same, then they get 1 (one; fully matching).
    • If the selected option of both users is not same, then they get 0 (zero; not matching).
    • Partial matching is not possible.
  2. Multiple answers questions:
    If number of common answers between both users is x, and number of total answers opted by both users is n, (while counting the common opted answers only once) then they get the score of x/n for the question. For example:

User A: Having pets is

  • A lot of fun/Happiness
  • A lot of fun/Happiness
  • Bad/Unethical
  • A huge responsibility
  • Expensive

  • I like it

  • I don’t like it
  • Not sure

User B: Having pets is

  • A lot of fun/Happiness
  • Bad/Unethical
  • A huge responsibility
  • Expensive
  • I like it
  • I don’t like it
  • Not sure

n = 5 (total opted answers by both users are 5, while counting the common opted answers only once)
x = 1 (only one opted answer is common)
x/n = 1/5 = 0.20 (So, they will get the score of 0.20 for this question’s mind-matching result)

  • III. Rank order question (allowed with a total of only 3 to 7 options):
