My DIKY Profile

What is my DIKY profile?

On DIKY, your friends can vouch for you on 44 personality traits and 20 interests or activities. Your profile is built by understanding from these answers, what are your most dominant qualities (Top 5 qualities) and the activities you love to do (Top 5 Tags). You can see how many people are saying on each quality or tag in “My Personality Analysis” > Qualities or tags tab.

What are these badges?

Badges are a sign of your profile strength. A profile strength of 10% gets you the Newbie Badge, 30% Explorer, 60% – Popular and 100% – Superstar. You can check out what badge you are on and how to get the next one in “My Personality Analysis” > Badges tab

How do you decide my top 5 qualities and tags?

You start your journey by answering a few basic questions about yourself, which helps us build your basic profile. When your friends start answering questions about you, they either support the qualities and tags you unlocked for yourself, or help you unlock more. The ones which get the maximum support from your network are your top 5 Qualities and Tags.

What if people say bad things about me on DIKY?

We have built DIKY so that you can easily discover and connect with people around and not bully peers !! We want to give you 10 reasons to connect with a persona and not 10 reasons not to connect !!

For this we have done the following 4 things –

  1. All qualities are positive in nature and those which a person looks for while connecting with someone else for any activity.
  2. All interests/activities are those which you would want to connect over with people around you
  3. The vouching is not via comments but a left/right swipe on disguised questions.
  4. The questions are created and gamefied by psychologists.

So it is actually impossible for anyone to say anything bad about anyone on DIKY !!

Vouches

What are vouches?

Whenever you answer questions about your friends by swiping left or right we call it vouching. This are the most integral part of DIKY as they help us understand a person’s personality from his network. Your visibility on DIKY is dependent on the number of vouches you have. Need less to say more the vouches higher the visibility.

Who can vouch for me?

Only friends can vouch for each other as we feel that they would know each other the best.

Why should I ask my friends to give me vouches?

Every person is visible only for his/her top 5 qualities and top 5 tags in a location. More vouches you have, more is your visibility on the above and thus chances of meeting better people. Also it helps us keep the entire platform authentic and free from creeps.

Why should I give vouches to my friends?

Well simply because –

  1. You can give anonymous feedback to your friends in a fun way
  2. You directly contribute in keeping the platform creep free!!
  3. It’s a quid pro quo – more you give, more you recieve

How can I give and take vouches from my friends?

  1. Giving Vouches (All friends) – Go to “Vouches”  in the side drawer to vouch for your friends randomly
  2. Giving Vouches (To one friend) – Go to the person’s profile and tap on “Vouches”
  3. Requesting Vouches (All friends) – Tap the Plus Icon on the bottom right-hand corner of the profile screen. Select Request Vouches. Tap on the friends you want to ask about your personality and hit “Request”

Search

What is new in this?

For the first time you can discover and meet with people around you based on personality and interests. All you need to do is tap on what kind of a person you are looking for.

P.S – You can also search by name but then again there nothing new in that!!

Who are the people who come in these searches?

Whenever you search for any tag we look up everyone on DIKY who has that tag in his/her top 5. Then we simply show the best results to you basis the following factors –

  1. Closeness in location
  2. Similarity in Personality
  3. Number of vouches a person has on the tag being searched

How to connect with anyone on DIKY?

If you like someone’s profile and would want to connect with him/her, you can start by saying a “Hi”. If you already know the person you can directly send him/her a friend request.

What happens when I send a “Hi”?

We send a message request to the other person mentioning the context where you found his/her profile. Messaging opens up between both of you once the person chooses to reply back.

What happens when someone sends me a “Hi?”

When someone sends you a “Hi” request, you can see why the person wants to connect with you, checkout his/her profile and then choose to reply back or unmatch. (problem word)
