The Effects of Personality Type in User-Centered Appraisal Systems
The basic objective of this paper is to make an extensive reference of a combination of concepts and techniques coming from different research areas, Psychology and Web personalization technologies, both of which focus upon the user. It has been attempted to approach the theoretical considerations and technological parameters that can provide the most comprehensive user profile, under a common filtering element, supporting the provision of the most apt and optimized user-centered web-based result. It further underpins the significance of the comprehensive user profile that incorporates not only the traditional user characteristics, but other intrinsic values of the user such as user psychological preferences (affect, personality and emotional processing parameters). Eventually, this paper introduces our first experimental results that concern the concept of personality and its effect on decision making and problem solving user profiles.
