LJ interest matching is very strange. I'm never surprised that I run an interest match and the people who match high for me, I'm almost never high for them; my interest list is fairly eclectic, so I don't tend to come out high for anyone else. Ok, fine.

What's weird is that I'm looking at my number two best match, searching for myself on her best match list, and I'm not there. That is, I have a numeric score for her on my list, and that score falls somewhere around 35th on her list, but I'm not there or in the top 150. It turns out that the scores aren't always (apparently usually) symmetric.

Here are how I rank on the interest-matching lists of the top ten on my interest list.

  1. (30.549) - #3 (32.995)
  2. (28.194) - >150 (<25.076)
  3. (23.569) - >150 (<21.134)
  4. (22.685) - >150 (<21.324)
  5. (22.068) - #2 (22.068) [numbers match!]
  6. (21.840) - >150 (<22.956)
  7. (21.720) - >150 (<18.373)
  8. (21.692) - >150 (<15.329)
  9. (21.225) - >150 (<19.496 )
  10. (20.993) - >150 (<22.754)

Person #2 shows up on everyone else's list; in order: 37, self, 32, 1, 51, 18, 1, 42, 9, 90.
