Inadaquacy of applicable choices

It's a great pity that you cannot add choices. (Am I reading that right.)
I see areas of interest where obvious and important answers are just missing.
Computer languages, F#, Powershell, VB.NET where are they? Without them the portfolio of answers is seriously deficient.
If the algorithm doesn't take that, reconsider the algorithm. Otherwise many answer sets will get increasingly out of date!

It is certainly true that for each user, some THAY questions will not have an answer suitable to them. When answering THAYs, the user is building a taste profile of themselves for Hunch to use for its recommendations. Therefore, my quick advice would be to simply skip any questions where you feel you don't have a suitable response to give. No information will be entered into your taste profile doing this.
There are reasons we cannot easily add additional responses to the THAYs, and those reasons become more problematic the earlier they are asked. These first THAYs are the ones answered most by Hunch's users, so they have the most data behind them. If we were to go back and add an additional response to one of these THAY questions, we would have to re-ask all the users who answered that question in the past. Maybe when they answered it there were only 2 responses, but they really would have answered the 3rd response we just added. Tricky business.

Going through the initial questionnaire, most (by a substantial margin) of the questions were overly restricted. Half the questions didn't have any sort of applicable answer.
Example, Dolphins trained for captivity, wrong for the sole justification of their asthetics? or perfectly fine... how bout because they're intelligent?
Harley or vespa? No consideration for a racing bike? or any other similar sort of sport option?
mac or pc? Linux box.
Alien abductions? insufficiently conclusive evidence, I can't conscientiously reserve reserve my right to withhold judgment on something that may or may not be the case?
Just a few examples, but in general it seems a lot of your questions could use a little more breadth in the possible responses
