In 2014 a young grad student from Warsaw named Michal Kosinski and some friends at Cambridge University’s Psychometrics Centre made a huge discovery.
He could map your precise behavioral psychological profile to Facebook based on what you ‘liked’.
In the field of behavioral psychology psychometrics are behavioral characteristics that can serve as predictors.
Who you really are deep down and how you are going to behave.
They are like currents in the ocean; you can see how something or someone is going to flow.
In fact the acronym for the basic psychological traits that make up every human is OCEAN.
As it turns out you have an ocean inside you and it tells us a lot about who you are.
O for openness. How open are you to new ideas and to the world?
C for conscientiousness. How meticulous or anal are you?
E for extroversion. How much do you like people—how outgoing are you?
A—agreeableness. How considerate are you and cooperative?
And N – my favorite – neuroticism. How much are you an anxious worried wreck?
These five traits can give us your intimate psychological portrait.
