I came across this public interface to IBM's Watson today to play around with:

https://watson-pi-demo.mybluemix.net/

Quote:
"The IBM Watson Personality Insights service uses linguistic analytics to extract a spectrum of cognitive and social characteristics from the text data that a person generates through blogs, tweets, forum posts, and more."

Of course, I couldn't help but copy and paste some text from the UB into it to see what an AI makes of it. I copied the introductory 6 paragraphs of paper 1, and Watson's perception of the author from that is:

"You are analytical and rational.

"You are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them. You are calm under pressure: you handle unexpected events calmly and effectively. And you are unstructured: you do not make a lot of time for organization in your daily life.

"Your choices are driven by a desire for connectedness.

"You consider both achieving success and independence to guide a large part of what you do. You seek out opportunities to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person. And you like to set your own goals to decide how to best achieve them."

Watson then lists out some percentage values of personality traits as it sees them in the writing. Here are a few of the high ones:

Imagination - 96%
Intellect - 96%
Cooperation - 97%
Sympathy - 100%

Where the UB author scores especially low is in the "emotional range" category:

Prone to worry - 4%
Melancholy - 8%
Immoderation - 1%
Susceptible to stress - 0%

Pretty interesting. Altogether there are about 40 or 50 various attributes it tries to figure out from the text.

Thank you, tas for sharing this info.
I too played around with it for some time.
I think I should share this info with my blog readers as well.
The personality check on the TUB authors gives some interesting insights.
But we should remember that the computer algorithms for this analysis is derived from human sample surveys.
Incidentally, my own self analysis gave personality results which are more or less agreeable and reproducible.

Ha ha ha. I inserted some text from a paper I wrote some years ago and this was the result:

Quote:
You are shrewd and skeptical.

You are imaginative: you have a wild imagination. You are philosophical: you are open to and intrigued by new ideas and love to explore them. And you are solemn: you are generally serious and do not joke much.

Experiences that give a sense of discovery hold some appeal to you.

You are relatively unconcerned with tradition: you care more about making your own path than following what others have done. You consider achieving success to guide a large part of what you do: you seek out opportunities to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person.


Openness - 100%
Adventurousness - 96%
Emotionality - 1%
Imagination - 100%
Intellect - 100%
Authority-challenging - 100%
Extraversion - 0%
Cooperation - 47%
Sympathy - 94%
Emotional range - 44%
Prone to worry - 1%
Melancholy - 56%
Susceptible to stress - 7%

Given the source of input, it does tend to repeat itself.
