Now, this thing takes your least popular interests and compare what other interested in that interest, has listed in their interests to figure out what's the most common interests among those.

I kinda like the idea for several reasons. People tend to like a lot of things surrounding a certain interest, as in.. I you're interested in Director Peter Greenaway, you're likely to listen to Composer Michael Nyman as well, and as a spin-of of that, might be an interest for the film "The Piano". as well as Jacobean theatre etc. Especially if you bother to list something specific and unusual.

Now, I have such a lot of interests listed I can't really fit any of these, and I've sort of narrowed the interests I've listed down to very special things, which I sort of know something about. I mean. I like Michael Nyman and have a lot of his CDs, but the fact is that I don't know that much about him. Probably more than many others, but I wouldn't be able to really discuss Michael Nyman with someone being "seriously" interested in him. In that sense, it's a slight protection to not list him.
