Spanish scientists develop computer than can gauge a person’s personality

COMPUTER software that can gauge a person’s personality has been developed by Spanish researchers.

The programme can read users’ faces and approximate their behaviour based on certain structural features.

A team of Spanish and American scientists worked with the National Institute of Mental Health to develop the software.

They designed a programme to measure the dimensions of a human face before getting volunteers to rate faces based on personality traits including ‘trustworthy’ and ‘mean’.
