Who Do You Prefer to Make Friends With? A Poll!

Because I'm curious, and I've browsed you people's friends lists often enough to have seen different befriending trends among different people.

(Note: the first demographic factor below is "age"; it got squashed into the preliminary introduction because LiveJournal's poll maker is stupid that way.)

Poll #39555 Friends-Making Demographics

Please rate the importance of all of the following factors in your decision about whether to add someone to your LJ friends list.1 = always 100% irrelevant; 5 = always enough by itself to get someone excluded from your list if you don't like that aspect of them (OR: always enough by itself to get someone added to your list if you do like that aspect of them. Does not have to be enough to both add AND exclude people by itself - one or the other is enough by itself to score a 5).age
