Hello Ms. Disguise,
Now I admit that this is going to sound cold and calculated ... at first. But this is actually a good way to find a mate, or even a house or car!
You need to accumulate a "databa
This even works well for employers who are interviewing potential employees!
If you have a larger databa
The obvious question is this: How do I know whether I should sample 10-20, or 50-100, or 5,000-10,000? The answer is this: How much time have you allotted to make your choice -- and the total number of possible candidates.
The mathematical reasoning behind this is that you should sample about 37% of the possible pool of candidates -- to get a good idea of what the pool looks like -- AND you have plenty of remaining choices from which to select. Actually the number 37% comes from the fraction of 1 divided by "e" -- which is a constant of nature (2.718281828...) -- which in this case, comes out to about 37%.
Admittedly, my answer is very long -- and over-thought, but this decision making process is ba
Don't know if I have.
I have been throwing crap at walls for years. Still nothing stuck accept a few cases.
