Using Interactive Storytelling to Identify Personality Traits


Abstract Each person feels and understands stories in a unique way. Stories have different meanings to people, and those depend on their personal experiences and personality. Each one of us is unique, with unique personality traits, classifiable through personality trait theories, such as the Myers-Briggs theory. In this paper, we describe how we have created a database of 155 individuals to extract their personality classifications based on Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and then used the fact that each person's individual traits impact the interpretation of interactive storytelling. With this work, we intend to perceive transparently (i.e. without questionnaire and using the language of the interactive experience itself) the person's personality in order to create through the use of persuasion a personalised narrative experience. Through a concrete study, we show how an Interactive Storytelling scenario can be used to identify users personality traits. In particular, by extracting the decisions taken by a user in an interactive storytelling scenario, we are able to predict the user's MBTI personality traits.
