- Why do you think there’s such a big difference between what people say they’re looking for in a romantic partner and the people they’re actually attracted to?
- What do you think are some advantages of this method of data collection? What are the potential disadvantages?
- How much information do you think you can learn about someone’s personality in a four-minute conversation? Would this information be enough to know whether this person is a desirable romantic partner?
