"Predicting Dark Triad Personality Traits from Twitter usage and a
linguistic analysis of Tweets"
This study explores the extent to which it is possible to determine
anti-social personality traits based on Twitter use. This was performed
by comparing the Dark Triad and Big Five personality traits of 2,927
Twitter users with their profile attributes and use of language.
Analysis shows that there are some statistically significant
relationships between these variables. Through the use of crowd sourced
machine learning algorithms, we show that machine learning provides
useful prediction rates, but is imperfect in predicting an individual’s
Dark Triad traits from Twitter activity. While predictive models may be
unsuitable for predicting an individual’s personality, they may still be
of practical importance when models are applied to large groups of
people, such as gaining the ability to see whether anti-social traits
are increasing or decreasing over a population.
