I understand that E-Harmony uses the same method that a company I used to work for used. They use what is called the Myers-Briggs typology test, which asks you a lot of basic questions on how you feel about ideals or situations, how you would react to certain things, your political and social outlooks, how you treat others and want them to treat you, and so on. All important questions that most people don't think to mention in a bio on a dating website. Most dating sites just offer you a short bio and a picture to guess whether or not the person would be right for you to date. A lot of those crucial things don't come out until you're deeper in a relationship and then you have problems.
