The truth about Photofeeler - Why you shouldn't take the results too seriously ๐Ÿ“Šโฃ

Men often ask me what I think about a popular photo rating website called Photofeeeler. โฃ
โฃ
On that website you can let women rate your pictures on a scale of 1-10 in 3 categories:โฃ
โฃ
โ— Attractivenessโฃ
โ— Trustworthinessโฃ
โ— Smartnessโฃ
โฃ
While I think, that it’s an okay baseline, there are way too many men thinking that those votes reflect the reality. โฃ
โฃ
My goal today is to explain you, why the results of that service should be treated with a grain of salt. โฃ
โฃ
First and foremost, Photofeeeler should ONLY be used for pictures of yourself. โฃ
โฃ
It wasn’t created for testing lifestyle or social pictures.โฃ
โฃ
Now let’s continue.โฃ
โฃ

โฃ
The biggest flaw about Photofeeeler is in my opinion the fact, that the pictures are being tested without taking the entire profile in consideration.โฃ
โฃ
Women can only see and vote on one picture at a time on there, while women on Online Dating apps see and judge your entire profile. โฃ
โฃ
One single picture by itself can give an entirely different impression, than it could if it were included in a profile.โฃ
โฃ
Let’s take for example a completely nerdy looking picture. ๐Ÿค“โฃ
โฃ
By itself, it probably won’t rate high in attractiveness.โฃ
โฃ
But included in a profile with many masculine looking pictures, it shows a different, softer side and will therefore improve the profile.โฃ
โฃ
That side is needed to balance it out. โฃ
โฃ
You always want to avoid coming across as one dimensional.โฃ
โฃ
As you know, I’m all about showing different shades of your personality in Online Dating. โฃ
โฃ
Not necessarily 50, but at least a few. ๐Ÿ˜ˆโฃ
โฃ
So women who are voting on a picture on Photofeeler, won’t be able to take the โ€žbigger pictureโ€œ in consideration.โฃ

โฃ
The second thing that I consider a BIG flaw, is that you never know what kind of demographic votes on your pictures. ๐ŸŒโฃ
โฃ
It could be unattractive women who live on the other side of the world, are far from your type and in no way representative of your target audience.โฃ
โฃ
Let’s imagine you’re only into Caucasian women like myself, would you ask black or asian women for their opinions?โฃ
โฃ
No you wouldn’t, because it won’t help you at all in attracting those Caucasian women that you’re into.โฃ
โฃ
It’s comparable to asking a doctor about his opinion on an airplane blueprint. ๐Ÿ›ฉ๏ธโฃ
โฃ
It won’t get you anywhere. โฃ
โฃ
Having talked about the things that I consider flawed, I would still recommend Photofeeler. โฃ
โฃ
It’s a good tool to get an opinion on which of your pictures makes a better overall impression to women in general. โฃ
โฃ
For that it’s very helpful and gives great insights, because the women voting on them are strangers and unbiased.โฃ
โฃ
I often see men having 10 votes and thinking that those are representative in any way, but that’s not the case. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธโฃ
โฃ
You need at least 20 votes to get any viable results, better would be 40 and more.โฃ
โฃ
Now i’m curious about your own opinion. โฃ
