Who knew that this was the key question to ask on a first date.
The simplicity / complexity question is also interesting as a predictor of political views. I prefer simplicity but apparently must subconsciously seek complexity because that is what I seem to get. Does that make me libertarian? A libertarian would argue that both liberals and conservatives act, at least in the political arena, from a deep hatred of complexity, or at least unpredictability. You can't really love capitalism without being able to accept chaos (chaos in the sense of "unpredictable, bottom-up, unregulated and uncontrolled," not the more nihilistic Road Warrior connotation).
