Decisions are a part of life. At various times you may need to choose the best vacation spot, job candidate, babysitter, or place to live. Your most important decision may be figuring out your best romantic partner. Relationships matter – a lot.

and even how you look at the world .

But how can you determine if your current romantic partner is the best of the best for you? It’s hard to know what factors truly matter, what you should not overvalue, or what is best to ignore entirely.

This kind of assessment comes up in a variety of contexts. Consider, for example, something that may seem entirely unrelated to relationships: determining whether a baseball player qualifies for the Hall of Fame. The task requires wading through dozens and dozens of highly qualified candidates, each with various outstanding characteristics, to determine who warrants permanent enshrinement. Still, no candidate is absolutely perfect – just like finding a quality relationship partner.

So as a relationship scientist, I’ve gathered inspiration from the Hall of Fame selection process and infused some science to draw up a checklist of intangibles you can use to think about your own relationship.

Instinct adds nuance to hard numbers

There are two general ways to make assessments: data and your gut feeling. In a sport like baseball, with a plethora of statistics, a data-based approach makes sense. But for a player to be truly Hall of Fame worthy, numbers may not tell the whole story. It should be visceral, a player should feel like a Hall of Famer. As Malcom Gladwell famously observed in his book “ Blink ,” snap judgments can have astounding accuracy. As a psychology professor myself, one example that always amazes me is that student assessments of a professor based on a 30-second silent video clip matches students’ evaluations based on the entire semester.

Relying on gut feelings isn’t perfect. But intuition is an important component of decisions , especially social ones. Clearly, people rely on instincts in a variety of situations such as deciding which job to take, which daycare is best, and who you should date. Trusting your own feelings is sometimes necessary because expert information is hard to access – published research articles are often locked behind paywalls – or written in a way that defies comprehension. And of course, the very nature of science and statistics is to focus on what is most typical in a population, instead of what is best for any individual.

Experts also aren’t perfect and new research shows that people have a sense of when to value nonexpert opinions over experts . In fact, some experts admit to using intuition themselves. A study revealed that marriage therapists acknowledge using their intuition and consider it a valuable tool in clinical settings.

Deserving of Hall of Fame enshrinement?

Perhaps with the value of instinctive evaluation in mind, famous baseball statistician Bill James created the “ Keltner List .” Named for a seven-time All-Star with borderline qualifications, the list was devised as a way to help assess a player’s Baseball Hall of Fame viability.

Even though James is a statistician, the Keltner List is intentionally nonscientific. Rather, it’s a collection of 15 questions that anyone can quickly answer to help guide an overall assessment of a player’s worthiness for the Hall of Fame. (Think: “Was he the best player on his team?”) The answers are not meant to provide a definitive conclusion, but rather to force a careful consideration of the most important information.

Back to relationships. A similar process can help you determine whether your current romantic partner belongs in your relationship Hall of Fame. Inspired by the Keltner List concept, I’ve put together a list of 15 questions to highlight what matters most. Like the Keltner List, my approach to relationship assessment is intentionally not scientific and has not been tested empirically (though that isn’t a bad idea for future research).

That said, as a relationship scientist, I couldn’t help but use science as a guide. In crafting each question, I consulted the existing research to ground it in the science of what contributes to a healthy relationship. Note that this list isn’t about helping you pick the best Tinder date, hookup or short-term fling. The questions focus on what matters for serious, long-term, committed, sustainable love. To benefit from this exercise, you need to be honest. If you’re lying to yourself, you won’t gain any insight. As computer programmers say, “garbage in, garbage out.”

A Keltner List for relationships

Consider each question and answer truthfully with a simple yes or no response:

At this point you may be tempted to tally your responses. Remember, this isn’t about generating a score, but rather engaging in a self-guided tour through what’s important in relationships. That said, the best answer for every question is a quick, certain and unqualified “yes.”

Looking at the list, you may take issue with a question or two and think, “that’s not important.” First, I’d say that the scientific evidence begs to differ. But that’s also why there are 15 questions. More questions provide greater accuracy. While any one question may not perfectly capture your relationship, 15 different perspectives gives a fairly complete picture.

Are there different questions you could ask? Sure. More questions? No doubt, but Bill James stuck to 15 questions for his Keltner List, so I did as well.

With relationships, like selections to a Hall of Fame, there aren’t easy answers and no guarantees for what the future holds. As much as you may like a definitive scoring system where a partner with at least a 12 out of 15 is a “keeper,” that isn’t possible. Relationships are complex. Any attempt at an easy answer is inevitably an oversimplification.

Instead, consider your responses to this list as additional data points that provide new insights. Don’t stop here. When you make important decisions – like who you’re going to spend the rest of your life with! – collect as much data as possible. Consult the experts, yourself and, as Question 10 suggests, your friends. By using both your head and your heart you can make the best decision about whether your romantic partner is Hall of Fame material.

Allocation, in this case, means to assign income to the state you were living in when you earned it. We'll either ask you to separate the income you earned or to verify the allocation amounts we already calculated for you.

Allocating your income shouldn’t be too difficult, but it can involve some math. You'll need to determine if the income you're allocating is earned or unearned,as these are handled differently:

Earned income Unearned income

Earned income allocations

Allocating earned income is easy if you stopped working for an employer in one state and started working elsewhere after you moved. All you need to do is look at your W-2 or 1099-MISC. Allocate the income from your former job to your former state and your income from the new job to your new state.

But what if you continue working at the same job while living in 2 different states? You'll have to estimate how much income you earned as a resident of one state versus the other. Here's a few ways to do that:

Method 1 – this is the simplest method of all, and the most accurate if your income fluctuates from paycheck to paycheck.

Find a paystub with the pay period ending around the time of your move. The YTD (Year-To-Date) amount on the paystub is how much you earned while residing in your former state.

Method 2 – this method is pretty accurate as long as your income is more or less the same from paycheck to paycheck.

Estimate the number of weeks/months you worked at that job while a resident of one state and divide it by the total of number of weeks/months you worked at that job to come up with a factor.Then apply the factor to your total income from that job to come up with the allocation for that state.

For example, if you worked at that same job the entire year and moved in early May,you earned roughly 4 months' worth of income (1/3 or 33% of your total income) in your old state. Multiply the total income from that job by .33 to obtain the allocation for your former state; the remainder gets allocated to your new state.

Method 3 – this method is the most accurate, but it also assumes your income is more or less the same from paycheck to paycheck.

First, find the Julian date of your move (also called an Ordinal date). Search for "Julian Calendar" in your favorite search engine.

Then divide your Julian date by365 to come up with a factor, which should be less than 1.Apply your factor to the year's total income from that job to get the income allocation for your former state. The remainder is allocated to your new state.

Tip: Your payroll department may also be able to help. They should have access to time sheets and other records that can give you an accurate picture of your earnings before and after your move date.

Allocating unearned income is pretty straightforward – just allocate it to the state you were a resident of when you received it. Here are some examples:

Valve, which owns the largest online PC gaming store in the world, recently expanded its Link service from streaming a game from a high-end PC to a low-end one in a person’s house, to include the ability to stream games to a smartphone.

“There are quite a few people that are working on streaming, like Nvidia,” Guillemot said. “So, we think it’s a trend and that it will continue to evolve. Eventually, the technology will improve dramatically, which will allow us to have a very smooth experience in the big cities of the world.”

While Ubisoft is one of the largest third-party game developers in the world, they’re not a company directly linked to any of the big three platform creators: Nintendo, Microsoft , and PlayStation .

Nintendo for its part doesn’t see its consoles going anywhere anytime soon. The company is just a year into the incredible success of the Nintendo Switch – a hybrid console that can be played on the go or off of a television. So in some ways, it’s following the same philosophy of ubiquitous gaming, but on its own platform.

“Nintendo Switch is the only platform delivering console-quality games that can be taken anytime, anywhere,” Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said. The Nintendo Switch “just celebrated its first year on the market, and it has much more to offer in terms of unique experiences.”

PlayStation declined to comment, but earlier this year PlayStation chief John Kodera noted that the current PlayStation 4 , which launched in 2013, is in the final phase of its life, indicating that a next generation of game consoles might be just around the corner . While he also talked about a continued interest in portable gaming , he didn’t note what form that new generation might take.

The statements come as PlayStation 4 holds tightly onto a major lead in console sales. The company sold 20 million PS4 in 2016, 19 million last year and expects to sell 16 million this year.

Microsoft, which stopped releasing its One sales figures in 2016, seems to be evolving the way it looks at gaming.

“Microsoft has a long history as a leader in the world of gaming,” Phil Spencer, e xecutive vice president of gaming for Microsoft, told Variety. That history starts back in the early days of Windows with titles like “Minesweeper” and “Solitaire,” and then advanced with the company’s push into consoles with the original and then its support of online console gaming, streaming and game services. In 2013, Microsoft launched its latest console, the sale real recommend cheap price Tods Mens Leather Moccasins Ci clearance looking for hot sale for sale CI29126yX

Our focus right now is asking the question, ‘What can Microsoft do for gaming?’ instead of simply how to stack up against the competition. It’s why we look at expanding the audience with Xbox Adaptive Controller, or how we make sure games can be multi-generational with projects like backward compatibility. I care less that people play Minecraft on an Xbox One , but that people can play Minecraft no matter what console or device they have in front of them.”
