Visual DNA @

As I was browsing through my high school batchmate's Friendster profile, I got intrigued by a flash application running in her profile page. It says there (only a part of it) "MY VISUALDNA...READ MY VISUALDNA PROFILE...GET YOURS IN youniverse (beta)." At first I didn't know how to read VISUALDNA correctly, only to find out that it's actually Visual DNA. But what actually is a "Visual DNA"? I checked it out and it turns out to be a socializing network (like Friendster) where you are 'matched' by the site to those people who are most likely similar to your personality, likes, and dislikes. So, how does the site do the 'matching'? By letting you take quizzes where you answer by clicking on the picture that best describes your answer. Cool huh? A quiz with a twist. So this is where the Visual DNA comes in.

I'm actually interested on the quizzes and the results and not on the socializing/matching service of the site. It's fun to know what your visual answers to their questions say about you. And they have several quizzes that you can answer. I'm guessing their Personality Quiz is the most popular for obvious reasons, so that's the first one that I took. The result says i'm a Go Getter under the Mood category...a Thriller in the Fun category...a Junkie Monkey in the Habits category...and just simply Fun in the Social category. Of course it goes on to describe how you got grouped per category and I must say they are at times accurate and some of their assessments are quite obvious given the answer you chose for a particular question. Nonetheless, it's fun answering their quizzes which range from Careers & Well-Being to Movies, Love & Dating.

I'm sharing with you some of the quizzes that I've answered which the site has conveniently made available through widgets that you can post anywhere in the web or wherever you wanna post it. You can actually choose from either the Landscape or Portrait version...i've chosen Landscape for all the results that i'm sharing below. I suggest you check the site out (at and answer some quizzes there (signing-up is not required when answering a quiz) and see for yourself what description they'll give you based on your answers. Happy visually answering!Ü
