The three questions are:

  • Do you like horror movies?
  • Have you ever travelled around another country alone?
  • Wouldn't it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?

They've been able to determine that many of the successful relationships between members on OKCupid are between people who agree on most or all of the answers to these questions. While they might seem somewhat shallow at first, the answers seem to point to farther-reaching implications. Of course, it won't be accurate for everyone, but after thinking about my past relationships it's looking pretty accurate to me.
