A cognitive structure focused to explain diverse behaviors of human regarding fixed and quantifiable features is called personality. Personality shows effects on various customs, traditions and daily routines. Big-five personality traits which is five-factor method contains agreeableness, extraversion, conscientiousness, openness, and neuroticism. This paper is a study of personality traits of humans based on usage of mobile apps, social media, handwriting analysis and facial expressions. By using this four methods people can be categorized into these five personality traits. This personality traits categorization will give best results in the areas of medical and marketing.
