What your results mean

Scores

Photofeeler scores are given as a number between 1 and 10.

Photofeeler Scores

Algorithmically, each score takes into account the raw feedback given by voters, the voting style of each said voter, and the gender and age of the photo subject.

If you hover or tap on the one of the faded sections on the bars, a tooltip will tell you your current score's confidence intervals.

Confidence Intervals

A confidence interval is a mathematical term. It means the range in which Photofeeler is pretty certain your "true" score lies. (That is, the score your photo would end up with if you had thousands of votes.)

The more votes you add to your test, the smaller these ranges get. Note that photo tests with very split opinions will have wider confidence intervals and require more votes to obtain the same certainty.

Data

In Data mode, you may notice dark-colored notches in the bars.

If you hover or tap on any individual notch, a tooltip will tell you precisely what it means.

Score Notches

Generally, though, these notches represent the voting style of the person behind the vote and how that vote was adjusted in calculating your score.

For instance, if someone voted 3 ("very"), but they consistently rate photos very high for that trait, you'll see a notch on the far left of the bar. That means their "very" doesn't count as much as the "very" of a person who rarely leaves 3s for that trait.

What makes a "good" score

It depends on your standards.

Some might be happy with a 6 or a 7, but the Photofeeler team adamantly believes that anyone can score a 9 or higher for any trait with enough experimentation.

Keep in mind that you can get an Attractive score of 1 for one photo of yourself and an Attractive score of 9 for another. Photofeeler cannot score you as a person. Remember: Photofeeler tests photos, not people!

Repeats of the same Note

These are Quick Notes (see below).

Sometimes several users will send the same Quick Note, resulting in what looks like repeats. These Notes were actually sent from different people.

Quick Notes

Quick Notes are pre-written Notes available to voters on the voting page, just above the big, orange "Submit Vote" button.

Quick Notes

Before rolling out Quick Notes, a lot of the same comments were typed out over and over.

Quick Notes are based on common feelings and suggestions that voters have historically expressed on Photofeeler. They help voters give specific feedback more easily.
