Cognitive Daily reader “Jokermage” pointed us to a web site which claimed that it could predict with 98 percent accuracy what site visitors would be thinking after a short quiz.
I tried the quiz, and indeed, the site appeared to “predict” my thoughts. But could it really do this with 98 percent accuracy? We’ve decided to see if we can replicate the process here. I’ve created two different quizzes, one which exactly replicates the original quiz, and another which is slightly different. So that we can divide participants into two roughly even groups, click on the appropriate link below:
You’ll have until 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, April 26 to participate, or until there are 400 responses. The study should take no more than a minute or two to complete. Make sure you click through to the survey site to record your response!
Since there is some “secret” information involved, I’m going to close comments on this one.
Update: Jokermage has a blog.
Update2: We’ve received enough responses, so the survey is now closed and I’m opening up the comments. You can still try both tests by clicking on the links above, but after you’re done, you’ll simply return back to Cognitive Daily.
