Ungathered Thoughts

IBM Watson Personality Insights is a horoscope machine at the Victoria Park Markets

Here's what it says about me, based on being fed a randomly handy post from this here blog.

You are sentimental.

You are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them. You are proud: you hold yourself in high regard, satisfied with who you are. And you are assertive: you tend to speak up and take charge of situations, and you are comfortable leading groups.

You are motivated to seek out experiences that provide a strong feeling of connectedness.

You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done. You consider helping others to guide a large part of what you do: you think it is important to take care of the people around you.

I suspect it's probably fairly right, for the instance of me which existed while writing that post, but these sweeping "you are X" claims seem to have all the credibility of this yellow machine at the Victoria Park Markets which took your DOB and spat out a page of dotmatrix horoscopic proclamations.

I kinda liked that machine too, and computers are pretty good at horoscopes anyway since it's just maths right? But I didn't trust it.
