Predicting Personality Traits based on Pictures in User's Social Media

Personality analysis requires quality data especially text related to psychology. However, in some applications, data source is poor. For example, in social media, some people may use many pictures with a little description. Personality result of existing method may be inaccurate.

Existing works identify personality based on demographic features, e.g. age, gender, or predict personality using psycholinguistics models. And directly converting pictures to description may not work. One prior art analyzed personality through social media profile picture choice; some recently proposed methods also consider emotion, sentiment, or speech. But they do not analyze pictures in user’s social media.
