Researchers have developed an Artificial intelligence (AI)-based system that can reveal your personality type just by looking at your eye movements.
The system uses Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to demonstrate a link between personality and eye movements.
The findings showed that people’s eye movements reveal whether they are sociable, conscientious or curious, with the algorithm software reliably recognizing four of the “Big Five” personality traits — neuroticism, extroversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness.
The research was done by the University of South Australia in partnership with the University of Stuttgart, Flinders University and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Germany.
Researchers tracked the eye movements of 42 participants as they undertook everyday tasks around a university campus.
The study provided new links between previously under-investigated eye movements and personality traits, delivering important insights into emerging fields of social signal processing and social robotics.
