Example text

We may use lower-level features such as patterns of letters or words (n-grams, which will be introduced in the next chapter), or more complex features such as personality dimensions measuring dependency, extraversion and so on. When using these features to predict addiction, we may find that some of them contribute nothing to the model and therefore should be removed. Other features that we haven’t previously considered may surprisingly be revealed as the magic bullets of our model. The bottom line is that a pragmatic approach to automatic personality analysis optimally combines openness to different theoretical approaches and the decisiveness to choose only those features that empirically contribute to the model, given a specific task.

If you are an extravert who is full of energy, you will probably prefer a music style that adheres to your temper. However, in our study, we were interested in the lyrics of various music genres, which is a much more delicate issue. Our first study asked whether and how the words used by different personality types are similar to the words used by different music genres. For instance, we hypothesized that extraverts, in comparison with non-extraverts, will use in their essays words that are similar to the words used by energetic music, such as rock-and-roll.
