Have you tried “Hunch”? It’s a service that promises to provide recommendations and information according to your taste and those of others who think like you.
If you are uncomfortable about people gathering information about your interests, this may scare you away. Hunch asks a myriad of questions about what you like, prefer, or stay away from.
