What your results mean


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

Photofeeler Scores

Your score takes into account the voting style of each person who gave you feedback (e.g. if they typically vote higher or lower for that trait and by how much).

Your scores are standardized so that you can easily compare your results to the general population. That is, a score of 5 is neither good nor bad, just average, as compared to photos typically found on Tinder, LinkedIn, or Facebook — accounting for the photo subject's gender and age.

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.


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 high for that trait, you'll see a notch on the far left of the bar. That means their "very" doesn't raise your score as much as the "very" of a person who rarely leaves 3s for that trait.

Keep in mind that we throw out poor-quality votes, so any votes that show up here have already met our standards of quality. So even if a voter is said to typically rate "very low" or "very high," we are confident that their votes are honest and careful, and they're not simply giving the same ratings again and again.

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.

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.
