The Interesting tab mostly shows questions tagged with my Favourite Tags. However, it also shows the odd question not tagged with one of my Favourites Tags.

It seems very unintuitive behaviour to me; a little like if we were to include questions with no bounty on the Featured tab.

See the screen grab below for an example: questions tagged and are appearing even though I have neither of those tags in my list of favourites.

Is this a bug, or ?

    I think it shows questions based on what you've viewed as well – simchona May 23 '12 at 8:51

    Thanks guys. In my case I wonder if I'm seeing jquery questions because I've viewed .net questions also containing the jquery tag. Irritating behavior if that's the case, to me anyway. – razlebe May 23 '12 at 9:49
  • Yeah, AI isn't that good yet. I think that falls under the rubric of "making the site more awesome", so I'm convinced that the team is working hard on it. – Cody Gray May 23 '12 at 13:16
  • @razlebe Done. I had expected this to be closed by now. But there you go. – Bart May 29 '12 at 8:05

From this question:

"The "interesting" tab is visible on the home page of Stack Overflow, and it shows the questions using one of the tags you added in your favorite list, and other questions you could find interesting"

So yes, it should predominantly show questions you're actually interested in, but will most likely also show the odd question related to tags you've somehow visited.
