The SparkMatch (sparkmatch.com) personality test seems to be a variation on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which classifies people on four independent dimensions, to result in 16 distinct personality types.

I, a "Rolling Stone" type, got a 100% match with a "Pink Princess" - the female cognate of Rolling Stone. Other 90% and higher matches were "Girl, Interrupted", "Drama Queen", and "Angel From Hell" - all differing from "Rolling Stone" on only one axis. (I have seen only ONE "Librarian" on SparkMatch; if there were more, I expect they'd be high-percent matches.) The lust/love chart and age difference also seem to play a factor in the percent-match algorithm.

Update: SparkMatch is down "for a while". I will be eyeballing it from time to time to see if and how it's changed.
