Yes, youtube does look at your history and make recommendations based on it. Their goal is to get you to watch more and more to drive ad revenue, so the basic assumption is you want more similar content. I get a lot of right wing rhetoric in my youtube stream, does that say something about me?

b.t.w. you can tell youtube to forget about your search history, remove your recommendations, etc. You don't really need to create a new account if you do things properly. One thing I do on a regular basis is delete the recommended channels the youtube gives me, not hard to do if you do it whenever they pop up. What I really would like them to implement is a complete black list on certain channels, never to again appear (eg. 10 ways to ...., always guaranteed to be complete crap).
