Volunteers were asked to rate the photographs on 10 personality traits: extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, openness, attractiveness, self-esteem, loneliness, religiosity and political orientation. In order to compare their scores, the researchers asked the students in the photo to describe themselves according to the same characteristics.

From neutral and spontaneous pictures, a complete match was recorded in terms of assessing extroversion and self-esteem. Volunteers did not guess the rest of the qualities from neutral pictures. But according to spontaneous (after all, it is precisely such photos that are posted on social sites), the participants in the study “saw through” correctly 9 out of 10 character traits of students. It was not possible to guess only the political orientation, which is really very difficult to do from photographs.

The authors of the study say that the data they obtained have not only purely scientific value, but also quite practical. They should be listened to by people who post their photos on the network. After all, not only your friends, but also potential employers, colleagues and even enemies will be able to consider them.
