I've looked at this question, but it's still not clear to me.

Searching https://stackoverflow.com/users/ my user tags are HTML, JavaScript and jQuery. This is the case for all filters (week, month, quarter, year, all). I have a famous question with these tags. But the top tags on my profile page are C#, .NET and ASP.NET.

It doesn't make sense that the user tags are determined by a question, but should rather be based on my top tags and answers. As that more accurately reflects my strengths, whereas a famous question doesn't, it just shows that a lot of other people had the same question.

Can you please explain how these tags are determined?

Not only a famous question (that's about views); it also must get quite a few votes. According to the answer on the question you already linked to, these tags are the ones you

earned the most votes in during this [period]

For this, both questions and answers are counted.

Yes, because those are solely based on answers, not on questions.
