Self-Statement Explorer

Self-Statement Explorer

Start with "I ... "

Please type any sentence that can, in principle, discribe you or anyone else. The only requirement is that the statement starts with "I".

Although the tool understands the language pretty well, try to be as concrete as possible.

For example, good statement: "I am an angry person". Bad statement: "I would never, never, ever like to participate in the party that... etc. etc. "

Item Classification

Here you can find item classes. Is item psychological or demographic? If demographic, is it about age, gender... etc.

Keep in mind, if item is demographic then all psychological projections below will be very biased.

Adjective Cloud

This is adjective cloud (decomposition) that represents the self-statement.

The larger the font, the closer the adjective represents the meaning.

If you are in doubts whether it make sense, please check "closest items" below. As adjectives always depend on the items, if items make sense then adjectives should make sense too.

Closest items

This is the projection of the self-statement to the psychological inventory items. Only most loaded items are shown.

Direct items are shown in green, opposite items in red. Closest items come first.

Big 5 projection

This is Big 5 projection of the statement.

Blue color represent positive projections, orange - negative.

Projection on Inventory

This is the projection of the sentence to the specified psychological inventory.

Blue bars represent a positive projection, orange - negative.

How does it work?

Shortly, the statement is processed by the Natural Language Processing (NLP) engine. As an output, a N-dimensional personality-vector is obtained. This vector is then projected onto adjectives and psychological inventories (both facets and items).

Personality space is developed based on available psychological datasets. The main piece of data comes from IPIP.
