Putting your econometics skills to use
Choose randomly in the age group that you are interested in, and date every
single one of the girls in the sample for the same amount of time (so, you’d
have to dump them when the time comes, or you need to keep them with you as
long as the time takes, if they want to dump you first). Then you rate them,
look at the distribution, calculate the mean, and the standard deviation.
2. Now for every girl that you date afterwards, we need to do a hypothesis test:
H0: this girl’s rating is rating is the same as the observed mean.
Suppose the previous sampling follow a normal distribution, then you can do a
t-stats on the current girl friend’s rating is significantly larger than the
sample mean, then congratulations, you’ve found your “significant” other.
3. But in order to save time so that you won’t end up wasting your time on the
girls who are not statistically “significant”, you can run a multi-regression
on the sample, with repressors such as height, weight, Body Mass Index, color
of hair etc. Find out which one plays a major role in your rating, then with
these rules, you can narrow your girlfriend pooling to look for the significant
