Using tech to tell personality traits. Traitify.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, June 27, 2014

What are your real personality traits?  Creating software that can tell.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Knowing more about yourself can be important when making things like career choices.  And while we may have some difficulty recognizing our true selves, software can help.   Derek Mercer heads a company call Traitify, which is in the business of creating apps and Web sites that are designed to do just that….in a way that’s different from the typical questions and answers….

“Ours comes at it with just pictures.   You look at several pictures…and by looking at those pictures and making a binary decision of me or not me, it then at the end can show you what your personality is.  The technology has taken over three years to perfect, but now that we’ve validated and checked it, it’s got about a 92 percent accuracy in identifying what you’d be best suited for.”

The software was first envisioned as a way to help people avoid bad blind dates.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
