Derek Dodge started working on 1Mind while he was in college. There were
thousands of students on campus but he only knew those in his dorm or in his classes. Derek knew there had to be more people who shared his interests but there was no easy way to find them. He built 1Mind to solve this problem, and help people of all ages all over the world to discover people most like them.
Recording star MC Hammer has always been interested in building communities and bringing people together. “Now more than ever we need to come together and focus on what we have in common. I am inviting everyone to join 1Mind to see what they have in common with me, and discover people all over the world who share their unique interests.” Said MC Hammer.
The 1Mind Likeness algorithm calculates a likeness score based on your personality type and your votes on questions. As you and other users vote on more questions your Likeness score continuously updates and becomes more accurate. The Discover page is a rank order list of people most like you. The Likeness scores are updated every day and the rank order list can change based on new users joining, and existing users voting on more questions.
Click on the profile photo of any person to see your Likeness score, and learn what you have in common. Compare your personality types, view questions you both have answered to see where you voted alike, or challenge your friends to vote on questions you have already answered.
Create your own questions by clicking on the + icon. Ask a question, choose two alternative answers, and select the photos that best represent those choices. Quickly discover what other people think and who voted like you.Invite your best Facebook friends to take the 1Mind Personality Test to see how much alike you really are, and discover unknown things you have in common. 1Mind questions cover topics that might not naturally come up in conversation, so you can learn new things about old friends.
